Which coolant will you use in your car?
Coolant change is not a new technology, but it is a new concept for the Indian market.
Coolant changes are a simple matter of adding coolant in the right amounts to the radiator, to the engine and to the transmission.
This is the reason why a change in coolant is only recommended for cars built from 2017 onwards.
The process is simple: add coolant and wait for the car to cool down to ambient temperature.
Coolants have to cool completely before being pumped back to the ambient temperature level.
This process can take anywhere from 3-6 hours depending on the engine.
For the best results, cars should be driven in coolers with an ambient temperature of around 15°C or lower.
Coolers that do not cool to a temperature of 15° celsius or below can not be used as a coolant change for engines and transmissions.
Coolant changes can also be done at the intake of the engine, and are also not recommended for vehicles built from 2019 onwards.
The cooling system must be able to cope with ambient temperatures of around 30°C and below.
If the coolant temperature of the coolers cannot reach 30° c Celsius, the coolants must be changed to a mixture of 50% coolant (coolant in excess of 50ml) and 50% gas (cooling gas is used as the coolANT).
The mixture must be cooled by running it through a filter (usually a drip system) and then pumped through a pump.
Cooling gas should not be pumped through any other cooling system.
The mixture should be cooled to ambient with a pressure of 50 kgph.
Cooled coolant must not be stored for longer than 6 hours.
Coolant temperature must be maintained at 15° Celsius or below.
Cooler cooling systems are usually equipped with an evaporator to allow for air to be passed through the cooler.
The cooler can be cooled with an air-con (air conditioning) system and an air pump.
The air-conditioning system should have a flow rate of between 3-5 litres/min.
The pump should not pump air to the cooler but should pump air through the air-pump system.
This should allow for a temperature rise of between 5-15°C (20-40°F) in the cool tank.
A simple way to check if your car has a coolANT system is to run it through the car’s engine coolant filter and see if there is a difference in the temperature of coolant being pumped through the filter.
If the coolante level is higher, the car is having problems.
Coolants should be changed once every three weeks and any issues should be resolved with a new coolant.
As part of the car maintenance programme, the engine coolants are also monitored with a sensor which measures the coolanted air temperature.
If there is an increase in the air temperature, the system is adjusted to remove coolant from the engine cooling system as quickly as possible.
Cooling system changes can be done in two ways.
First, coolant can be changed by running the coolantes through a heat exchanger (an open-air system).
This is a relatively simple procedure and is a good option if you are using a diesel engine for the first time.
The car coolant system can be operated with a diesel fuel injection system.
A simple, inexpensive way to change coolant into a new mixture is to use a heat pump, which can be used in the engine or transmission coolant changes.
A heat pump can be attached to the exhaust pipe and the fuel injection process will be initiated using a spark plug.
The heat pump will pump coolant through the engine’s exhaust pipe.
After the engine has warmed up, the spark plug will ignite and ignite the fuel, heating the fuel.
The engine will then be run for two minutes and the engine will cool down, giving the vehicle another chance to cool.
