ASE Question Of the Month

Which is correct?

You’re correct if you answered C!

It is the additive package used in the coolant that is key to the cooling system’s health. When depleted, it can no longer protect the cooling system components from damage, rust or corrosion. Many things can deplete the inhibitor package; age, using “hard” water, outside contaminants (like a leaking head gasket) and others.
