Our vehicles operate in a wide range of outside temperatures in New York. Thatís 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 donít always get the extremes in Taberg, New York.
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).
Thatís why we mix anti-freeze with water Ė it lowers the freezing point of the coolant, and raises the boiling point as well. A fifty/fifty blend of water and antifreeze is the usual recommendation from Danís Auto Service.
And on top of that, coolant has to protect the components of the cooling system from corrosion. Your ownersí manual will tell you what kind of coolant you should use. Of course, your Danís Auto Service service representative in Taberg New York will know what to put in your car.
Coolant system failure is the most common mechanical problem people have. Much of that can be avoided by following factory scheduled service intervals. Check your ownerís manual or with your service advisor at Danís Auto Service for recommendations. We can also conduct a cooling system inspection to look for leaks, weak hoses or bad connections.
