2012 Nissan Murano Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is typically 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 decrease down the freezing point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is highly difficult. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the admitted 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 additional, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being additional to the engine system.
