A water pump is a mechanism that will keep the coolant circulates inside theengine to absorb heat as the engine is running. It is usually attached on the frontof the engine.Coolant AdditivesCoolant is a heat transfer liquid designed to absorb heat from the combustionof the internal combustion engine to maintain its normal engine operatingtemperature. Aside from maintaining the operating temperature, the coolant alsoprevent freezing during winter season and it also serve as rust inhibitors.Not all liquid used as coolant is capable in heat transfer. The correct andefficient coolant should be reacting with the changes of the weather. This means thatthe coolant should react as soon as the weather becomes too hot and should alsoreact as soon as the weather temperature becomes too cold. In effect, the coolantmust be resistant to extreme temperatures. It is for this purpose that the coolant isalso called as antifreeze agent. The coolant has a lower freezing point than anordinary water.Types of Coolant Additivesa.Glycolis an organic compound that belongs to the alcohol family. There aretwo types of glycol used as coolant; the ethylene glycol (HOCH2CH2OH) andthe propylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is a colorless, oily substance with asweet-smelling taste and minor odor. The ethylene glycol is slightly toxic.
