You ask. We tell. Learn the ins and outs of PEAK Antifreeze/Coolant in this informative Q&A breakdown.

Q:
How does antifreeze work and why does my engine need it?
 
A:

In a nutshell, antifreeze is mixed with the water in your radiator to prevent the water from freezing in the winter and boiling over in the summer. By keeping the water at a “comfortable” temperature, your engine will also run at the perfect temperature—further protecting your ride.

Q:
How often should my antifreeze be flushed? How do I do it myself?
 
A:

Antifreeze should typically be flushed every 2-3 years, or approximately every 25,000 miles. Extended life coolants don’t need be changed for 5 years. However, always refer to your owner’s manual for recommended maintenance schedules.

Flushing your own radiator is easier than it sounds. Here’s an easy, step-by-step tutorial.

Q:
Why do I have to mix water with my antifreeze—won’t that dilute it?
 
A:

It’s a normal jump for your brain to think that water would dilute antifreeze. After all, water dilutes everything else it’s mixed with, right? Fact is, water is necessary for antifreeze to go to work. It’s never recommended to use antifreeze at full strength. Always refer to the instructions on your bottle of PEAK antifreeze, as well as your owner’s manual for proper maintenance schedules.

Q:
What types of antifreeze are there? How do I know which one is right for my car?
 
A:

PEAK’s products are sensitive to all types of cars, as well as to the environment. This is why PEAK has created a full line of Antifreeze + Coolants – from traditional, full-strength antifreezes perfect for all cars worldwide to extended-life antifreezes and products designed for trucks with special needs, as well as eco-friendly products, too.

To find which is best for your car or truck, please refer to your owner’s manual, or feel free to call PEAK online or via telephone at 1-800-323-5440.
