Prestone shows us how important coolant is to an engine
Ever wondered what happens when an engine is running without coolant? We all know how important this substance is, but people still seem to be unaware, as thousands of vehicle owners let their cars run without it. Little do they know this can seriously damage their car’s motor.
Prestone wanted to show us just how vital coolant is to the life of an engine by making a video and putting it on YouTube. This isn’t CGI or any of that fake stuff that they use in Hollywood, no sir this stunt is 100 percent real. Prestone gave some well-trained pyromaniacs powerful blow torches and melted the engine block of a General Motors 3.6-liter six-cylinder.
It only took around twenty minutes for the motor to burn, leaving only the crankshaft and the cylinder sleeves. Luckily, the video is only around three minutes.
Hit the jump to watch the engine burn.
