2014 Honda CR-V 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 frequently half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to cut down the freezing point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is exceptionally conspicuous. Interestingly enough, this isn't the authentic time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the large 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 useful coolant.
