2018 Lincoln Continental 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 commonly 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 extremely essential. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the principal 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 beneficial coolant.

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