Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Engine System

Maintenance Issues:

How to check the level of coolant protection in your engine at your home.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Cooling system hydrometer (the relatively inexpensive version for home use)

  • Cooling system hydrometer used by mechanics (more expensive, though more accurate)

Guide:

Your engine depends on the coolant it contains to protect it.  Simply said, should the coolant freeze, your engine will suffer consequential damages, from abnormal structural expansions to cracking of the engine itself.

Therefore, it is a good idea to make sure you maintain the optimal level of coolant protection for your engine.

 

A good way to keep tabs on the level of your coolant protection in your engine is to utilize a cooling system hydrometer.  A mechanic will have a sophisticated, expensive cooling system hydrometer that provides a very accurate reading.  If you opt to check the coolant level in your engine on your own, the relatively inexpensive cooling system hydrometer available at auto retail stores or online can provide you a reading, too, though it is not as accurate as that of the cooling system hydrometers used by mechanics.  Of course, when using the cooling system hydrometer at home, follow the manufacturer's instructions.
