What is a coolant change?

Coolant is a special liquid, also called antifreeze, which keeps your engine cool by removing excess heat through the radiator. Essentially, it is a chemical solution which doesn't freeze in cold climates. Over time, this liquid will gradually get used up, and so it should be checked on a frequent basis - every 3 to 6 months.

In addition, coolant contains corrosion inhibitors that protect the metal, plastic and rubber in the cooling system from corroding in the presence of hot water.

So engine coolant does at least three different things! It helps transfer heat away from your engine, to the radiator; it prevents the cooling system freezing in very cold conditions; and it helps protect the whole cooling system from the corrosive effects of the hot water in it.

About Proton

Proton is a Malaysian car manufacturer which set up shop in 1983 on the orders of the then Malaysian Prime Minister, whose aim was for the country to build its own national car. Today Proton exports to more than 50 countries worldwide including the UK, where it has been selling vehicles since 2009.

One of the most popular Proton models currently sold in the UK is the Gen-2, a family saloon which also comes in an ‘Ecologic’ dual-fuel variant. This gives you the option to run the car on LPG, which will save you money on fuel costs. The other main current models on offer are the Savvy, an inexpensive compact city car, and the Satria Neo, a 3 door supermini.

Proton’s partnership with Lotus engineering has led to improved steering and cornering; the Gen-2 in particular gains plaudits from drivers for its comfortable ride. However, in general Proton drivers frequently report noisy engines, as well as bemoaning the interior’s rather cheap look and feel.

How to be a better driver

Whether you’re driving in Arbroath or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
