Lexus IS300 Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is commonly 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 chilly point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely laborious. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the dominant ingredient in the favored 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 great coolant.

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

How often should you change coolant in a Lexus IS300?

Typically, you should have your Lexus IS300 coolant flush completed every 30,000 miles or every two years. There are some instances where your vehicle can go without a flush for a longer period of time. When you bring your vehicle into Nalley Lexus Roswell, we will check your fluid levels and analyze it for debris or sediment which can harm the engine, and make sure it's diluted correctly. It's central to have this checked every 15,000 miles to make sure you catch all issues before they cause rigid damage. When it comes to your Lexus IS300 engine, it's better reliable than apologetic.

What happens if my Lexus IS300 runs out of coolant?

Your Lexus IS300 doesn't have to run out of coolant for troubles to start. Dilution levels need to be within a conscious percentage collection or your Lexus IS300 engine components can start to rust, break, or become irreparably damaged. If you run out of coolant exclusively due to a leak or poor fluid levels, your entire engine system can be compromised from the gaskets to the pistons or even the engine block itself.

How long does Lexus IS300 coolant last?

How frequently you need to flush and replenish your vehicle's coolant relies on the type of coolant. There are many types of coolants. 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.
