2015 Ram 5500 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 lessen down the chilly point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is remarkably great. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the fundamental ingredient in the popular 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 obvious coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water further, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being further to the engine system. Give the experts at Mike Shaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram a call at 9702364701 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service experts handle your coolant flush.
