Coolant Leak Repair
Coolant is an important component to any car's engine. The coolant protects the engine from overheating. The coolant (also known as antifreeze) keeps your engine working at an efficient temperature regardless of the outside temperature. Coolant is made up of silica, ethylene glycol and water which lowers the freezing point, so your engine won't freeze in extremely cold temperatures. You can look at the owner's manual for the model of your BMW for more details.
