Lincoln Nautilus 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 reduce the sudden point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely critical. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the mandatory ingredient in the notorious 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 persuasive coolant.

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

This type of coolant is not recommended for newer vehicles which come equipped with a longer-lasting coolant.

Newer coolants use an Organic Acid Technology (OAT) and last up to twice as long as older coolant. In some cases these long-life coolants can last over 5 years or 100,000 miles.
