Auto coolant performs two vital functions. First, it allows the radiator to keep the engine cool. Second, it prevents the radiator from freezing when it’s cold, and from boiling when it’s hot. Without sufficient auto coolant, the radiator will cease to function. This can cause an engine to overheat and break down. It may even cause the engine to fail entirely.
Car experts recommend that you aim for having a coolant mix of 50% antifreeze and 50% water. It’s important for a radiator to be inspected to make sure it is free of corrosion, and to ensure that there is sufficient auto coolant. In any case, having the coolant changed every 30,000 miles is important for keeping the engine and radiator in good condition.
