2015 Honda Insight 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 cold point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is exceptionally critical. Interestingly enough, this isn't the original time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the common 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 contractual coolant.

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