2018 BMW 740i Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is mostly 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 extremely crucial. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the crucial ingredient in the prominent 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 BMW a call at 3145823628 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service experts handle your coolant flush.

Every vehicle manufacturer, including BMW has developed its own coolant or requires a specific coolant that is occasional to distinct years and models.

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

Interestingly enough, up until the mid-1990s there was basically only a single type of coolant. It was a green formula coolant that contained corrosion inhibitors that only lasted between 24,000 - 36,000 miles or between two to three years. This type of coolant is not recommended for newer vehicles which come equipped with a longer-lasting coolant.
