Ethylene glycol based antifreeze and good quality soft water, the major component of the coolant, keep cooling system components protected from freezing at very low temperatures, prevent boil-over during hot summer months, and guard from rust and corrosion year round. If people wait too long to change their antifreeze/coolant, the used coolant could harm their cooling system components and compromise freezing, boiling and corrosion protection. Similar to having a pipe freeze in your home, the cooling system components in your car, including hoses, heater core, water pump radiator, and even the engine itself, can burst or break, leading to expensive, but preventable repairs, or in some cases engine replacement.
"The antifreeze in people's cars is something most people forget until disaster strikes," according to Megan Currie, Prestone product manager. "The good news is that it's easier than ever to get it done.and get it done right with our "All Makes, All Models" antifreeze/coolant, which is available as a concentrate or premixed for top-off convenience."
The proliferation of new products has given more choices to consumers, but at the same time has confused many people who aren't sure if what they find at their local store is appropriate for their vehicle. Prestone takes the uncertainty out of the buying process by introducing an "All Makes, All Models" antifreeze/coolant that is compatible and works with antifreeze/coolants in virtually all cars and trucks on the road.
Prestone also sells an antifreeze/coolant tester that is easy to use, and helps drivers determine the concentration and quality (visual) of their antifreeze/coolant.
