2018 Lexus ES 350 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 chilled point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is immensely crucial. Interestingly enough, this isn't the initial time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the central ingredient in the classical 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 convenient 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. Give the experts at Nalley Lexus Roswell a call at 7702848580 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service advisors handle your coolant flush.

Every vehicle manufacturer, including Lexus has developed its own coolant or requires a explicit coolant that is uncommon to individual years and models. There are many colors of coolants to help distinguish each including red, blue, purple green, yellow, and orange. It is basic to do your research if you plan to buy, flush, or replace the coolant in your vehicle. Innumerable models will not be compatible even with "universal" coolants or antifreeze.

Interestingly enough, up until the mid-1990s there was basically only a single type of coolant. It was a green formula coolant that contained corrosion inhibitors that only lasted between 24,000 - 36,000 miles or between two to three years. 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.
