2020 Lexus RC 350 Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is normally 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 lessen the brisk point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is immensely important. Interestingly enough, this isn't the authentic time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the well-known 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 convenient coolant.

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

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

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