2016 Toyota Camry Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is consistently a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are ordinarily half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the chilled point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is exceptionally laborious. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the basic ingredient in the favorite term "antifreeze". Keep in mind, you never want to pour antifreeze or water by themselves into your engine system. They need to be combined to create the lawful coolant.

You can buy ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water added, or you can buy full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being added to the engine system.
