Internal combustion engines produce a lot of heat — so much heat that the metal of the engine can become warped, cracked, and deformed when exposed to it. Because of this, your engine includes a cooling system, and coolant fluid (also known as antifreeze) is the key to it all. As the engine gets up to operating temperature, the water pump pushes the coolant fluid through coolant lines in the engine, where it picks up much of the excess heat. The now-heated coolant continues to move along coolant lines until it reaches the radiator, where it is cooled down by airflow and greater surface area. Once it’s cooled, it begins the cycle anew.
To do its job well, the coolant has to be in good condition. If it begins to degrade or become contaminated over time, it will not be as effective at absorbing the extra heat from the engine. When this happens, you’ll find that the engine becomes prone to overheating, which can cause massive damage. To keep this from happening, your Toyota will require fresh coolant.
