2016 Lexus CT 200h Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is naturally a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are usually half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the freezing point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely tough. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the considerable ingredient in the long-established 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 purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water further, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being further to the engine system. Give the experts at Plaza Lexus a call at 3145823688 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service advisors handle your coolant flush.
