2014 Lexus ES 350 Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is typically 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 reduce down the beneficial point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is highly crucial. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the classical 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 natural coolant.

You can pay cash for ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water added, or you can pay cash for full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being added to the engine system. Give the consultants at Plaza Lexus a call at 3145823688 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service advisors handle your coolant flush.

Every vehicle manufacturer, including Lexus has developed its own coolant or requires a explicit coolant that is scarce to personal years and models.

It is instinctive to do your research if you plan to buy, flush, or replace the coolant in your vehicle. Many models will not be compatible even with "universal" coolants or antifreeze.
