Our vehicles operate in a wide range of outside temperatures in Colorado. That’s why vehicle manufacturers use testing grounds from the frozen tundra to the blistering desert. Your engine coolant must be able to perform in these extreme temperatures, even if we don’t always get the extremes in Denver.
Coolant has to move heat away from the engine to prevent costly damage. Water does a very good job of holding heat, but it freezes at thirty two degrees (Fahrenheit). That’s why we mix anti-freeze with water – it lowers the freezing point of the coolant, and raises the boiling point as well. A fifty/fifty blend of water and anti-freeze is the usual recommendation from Express Car Care.
And on top of that, coolant has to protect the components of the cooling system from corrosion. Your owner’s manual will tell you what kind of coolant you should use. Of course, your Express Car Care service representative in Denver will know what you should put in your car.
Coolant system failure is one of the most common mechanical problems people experience. Much of that can be avoided by following factory schedule service intervals. Check your owner’s manual or with your service adviser at Express Car Care for recommendations. We can also conduct a cooling system inspection to look for leaks, weak hoses or bad connections.
