2016 Acura TLX Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is consistently 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 cut down down the chilly point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is highly crucial. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the leading ingredient in the old 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 appropriate coolant.

You can invest ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water other, or you can invest full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being other to the engine system. Give the experts at Nalley Acura a call at 7706299293 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service consultants handle your coolant flush.

Every vehicle manufacturer, including Acura has developed its own coolant or requires a visible coolant that is unique to private years and models. There are frequent colors of coolants to help distinguish each including purple green, yellow, red, blue, and orange. It is hard to do your research if you plan to buy, flush, or replace the coolant in your vehicle. Copious models will not be handy even with "universal" coolants or antifreeze.

How long does 2016 Acura TLX coolant last?

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