2014 Nissan Frontier Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is normally 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 the crisp point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely difficult. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the essential ingredient in the well-known 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 relevant coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water increased, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being increased to the engine system. Give the advisors at Coggin Nissan on Atlantic a call at 9047473915 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service mentors handle your coolant flush.
