Nissan Frontier 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 lower the bitter point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely draconian. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the acclaimed 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 factual coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water supplemental, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being supplemental to the engine system.

How long does Nissan Frontier coolant last?

How consistently you need to flush and replenish your vehicle's coolant relies on the type of coolant. There are many types of coolants. Interestingly enough, up until the mid-1990s there was basically only a single type of coolant. It was a green formula coolant that contained corrosion inhibitors that only lasted between 24,000 - 36,000 miles or between two to three years. This type of coolant is not recommended for newer vehicles which come equipped with a longer-lasting coolant.

Newer coolants use an Organic Acid Technology (OAT) and last up to twice as long as older coolant. In some cases these long-life coolants can last over 5 years or 100,000 miles.
