2018 Land Rover Range Rover Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is generally 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 freezing point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is exceedingly troublesome. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the principal 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 beneficial coolant.

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