Are Coolant and Antifreeze the Same Thing?
Updated: Aug 2
No- they are not the same.
Coolant is a combination of antifreeze and water. Antifreeze is a concentrated chemical that is not meant to work on its own.
On its own, antifreeze has a freezing point of around 0 degrees to -5 degrees Fahrenheit. When mixed with water, the freezing point lowers to around -35 degrees Fahrenheit.
Antifreeze also doesn't have the heat-transferring abilities that coolant does. Without water, anti-freeze loses about 35% of its ability to absorb and take heat away from the engine.
