You may be asking yourself, “What is coolant?” Coolant is a liquid designed to redistribute heat to control your vehicle’s engine block and parts’ temperature. Whether you have a used or new vehicle, engine coolant is vital. Engine coolant has an additive to ensure that your engine won’t overheat (over 212 degrees Fahrenheit) or freeze (below 32 degrees Fahrenheit). Check out our guide below about how to check coolant levels and when to change your coolant!
Here are just a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your coolant is at the correct level:
Note: Don’t try to open the radiator cap while the engine is hot. If you add more liquid, wait until the engine has cooled first.
Coolant levels go down over time, so it’s wise to check the cooling system every three to six months to see if it’s time to replace your coolant. Generally, the coolant is red, yellow, green, or blue. If your coolant is colorless or brown, flush the system and replace the coolant.
You’ll find coolant is thicker than water but thinner than oil. If your coolant appears sludgy, it’s time to schedule serviceat our service center near Beavercreek as soon as possible as there is a chance your vehicle has an internal gasket leak. While it’s possible to drive with a leaking gasket, this will cause your coolant to quickly drain. Without proper coolant levels, your engine can overheat and become very severely damaged.
