2019 BMW X6 Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is typically 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 chilled point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely extraordinary. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the famous 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 fitting coolant.

You can pay cash for ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water further, or you can pay cash for full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being further to the engine system.
