How Does Organic Acid Technology Engine Coolant Work?

Photo: Some rights reserved by StockMonkeys.com Engine Coolant Engine coolants (like antifreeze) have one function: they draw heat away from the engine so the engine can operate more efficiently and malfunctions or damage to the engine parts can be avoided. A cooling system uses water pumps, hoses, thermostats and a radiator, but the primary part is the coolant chemical itself, a substance which keeps the engine from boiling in the hot days, freezing in the cold days and corroding or building up scale while running. Traditional antifreezes and engine coolants use a glycol base that is made from petroleum, … Continuar leyendo

How Do I Fix an Antifreeze Leak?

How Do I Fix an Antifreeze Leak?

Photo: Some rights reserved by bandita The one good thing about an antifreeze leak is that it makes itself apparent very quickly. Your temperature gauge soars, warning lights comes on, and sometimes steam pours from beneath the hood of your car, truck, or SUV. When these things occur, pull to the side of the road and stop the car as soon as safely possible. Continuing to operate a vehicle that has lost its coolant can easily lead to the destruction of its engine. An antifreeze leak can be either external or internal. If you are experiencing an internal leak, … Continuar leyendo
