Coolant is more than just a word we often hear about when we are at our local Honda Service centre. It is in fact a mixture of water and antifreeze that contains special additives to help regulate the heat in our engine by preventing the water in the radiator from boiling or freezing. Since the majority of heat in the engine is generated by the burning of gasoline, the coolant is greatly relied upon to ensure the car is functioning properly. As the coolant travels through the engine by way of the water pump, it absorbs any excess heat while cooling the water and protecting various parts of the engine with its anti-corrosive properties.
What can go wrong?
Water simply isn’t enough to regulate the system as it will eventually boil or freeze with extreme temperature fluctuations. Without coolant, the engine would overheat extremely fast and the internal combustion would destroy it, making the system useless. Regular maintenance of your engine includes necessary flushes of your coolant system in order to ensure its functionally properly and keeping your vehicle’s engine in tip top shape.
