2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is frequently 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 cool point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is highly hard.
