2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is normally a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are generally half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the freezing point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is exceptionally essential. This probably isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the predominant ingredient in the popular term "antifreeze". Keep in mind, you never want to pour antifreeze or water by themselves into your engine system. They need to be mixed to create the proper coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water added, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being added to the engine system. Give the experts at Plaza Motor Company a call at 3145825294 or schedule service online and let one of our mechanics and service advisors handle your coolant flush.

Every car manufacturer, including Mercedes-Benz has developed its own coolant or requires a specific coolant that is unique to individual years and models. There are several colors of coolants to help distinguish each including yellow, purple red, green, blue, and orange. It is crucial to do your research if you plan to buy, flush, or replace the coolant in your car. Many models will not be compatible even with "universal" coolants or antifreeze.

How long does 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 coolant last?

How frequently you need to flush and replenish your vehicle's coolant relies on the type of coolant. There are many types of coolants. Up until the mid-1990s there was basically only a single type of coolant. It was a green formula coolant that contained corrosion inhibitors that only lasted between 24,000 - 36,000 miles or between two to three years. This type of coolant is not recommended for newer vehicles which come equipped with a longer-lasting coolant.

Newer coolants use an Organic Acid Technology (OAT) and last up to twice as long as older coolant. In some cases these long-life coolants can last over 5 years or 100,000 miles.
