2018 Acura RLX Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is regularly a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are regularly half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to cut the bleak point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is remarkably practical. Interestingly enough, this isn't the original time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the common 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 decent coolant.

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

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

This type of coolant is not recommended for newer vehicles which come equipped with a longer-lasting coolant.
