Antifreeze and coolant are two commonly confused automotive concepts.
Antifreeze is only one part of the coolant package. Water is what takes care of most of the cooling in your engine. Coolant is the mixture of water and antifreeze. There are also additives in the antifreeze to help with corrosion protection and lubrication.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions for temperature ranges and mixture to match your climate. Inspect and test your radiator cap to make sure it is working properly. Ask your Advance Auto Parts Team Member which antifreeze is correct for your vehicle and rely on Advance Auto for all of your quality auto parts.
