2018 Honda HRV Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is mostly a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are frequently half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the cool point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely convenient. Interestingly enough, this isn't the original time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the vital ingredient in the historic 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 handy coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water added, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being added to the engine system. Give the consultants at Coggin Honda Fort Pierce a call at 7725772585 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service consultants handle your coolant flush.

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