2018 Hyundai Kona Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is generally a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are ordinarily half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the cold point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is immensely troublesome. Interestingly enough, this isn't the initial time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the central ingredient in the long-established 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 correct coolant.

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