2016 Porsche Panamera 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 ordinarily 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 extremely essential. This seemingly isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the central 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 construct 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 Park Place a call at 4692147058 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service specialists handle your coolant flush.

Every vehicle manufacturer, including Porsche 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 red, blue, purple yellow, green, and orange. It is critical 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.
