2016 Land Rover Discovery Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is naturally 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 exceptionally troublesome. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the dominant ingredient in the classic 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 appropriate 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 advisors at Land Rover St Louis a call at 3145824599 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service advisors handle your coolant flush.

Every vehicle manufacturer, including Land Rover has developed its own coolant or requires a definite coolant that is unique to private years and models.

It is accepted to do your research if you plan to buy, flush, or replace the coolant in your car. Innumerable models will not be applicable even with "universal" coolants or antifreeze.
