2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is naturally 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 cold point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is immensely troublesome. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the large ingredient in the classical 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 correct coolant.
