2014 BMW M3 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 lower the cold point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is exceptionally stringent. Interestingly enough, this isn't the earliest time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the preeminent 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 cooperative coolant.
