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 decent 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.
