“This lime green stuff my mechanic pours into the radiator?” Sure. We’ll go with that. This “Lime-Green Stuff” is essential to both protection against freezing and dissipating the heat generated by your engine. Temperatures can get very hot in an an engine. Engine coolant, also known as anti-freeze, is used to regulate those extreme temperatures. The reason we use a combination of water and anti-freeze is to both raise the boiling point and lower the freezing point.

How would you know if you had a radiator leak? The first signs will be a pool of coolant under your engine. However, many leaks can be slow and nearly unnoticeable.

IF you think you mat have a coolant leak, you’ll want to get that checked out ASAP. A very small leak can turn to a very large problem very quickly. Call the Southtowne General Motors Superstore and set up an appointment and let your Atlanta GM dealer take a look at it.
