Your engine coolant has a difficult job. Today’s cleaner-running, more fuel-efficient heavy-duty engines require a coolant that performs under higher engine operating temperatures and faster coolant flow rates than ever before.

Not only does the coolant have to help maintain the right engine temperature. It must also protect your cooling system components from damage and corrosion. And it’s expected to do all of this over a longer coolant service life.

Never fear. There is a high-performance coolant that’s specially formulated for your precision-engineered Volvo truck engine – Volvo Extended Life Coolant (ELC). Volvo ELC will protect your heavy-duty engine from summer heat and winter freeze for up to 750,000 miles – more than double the service life of standard coolants.

Volvo ELC provides:

  • Long-term corrosion protection for aluminum, brass, cast iron, steel, solder and copper alloys.
  • Longer service life for water pump seals.
  • Excellent protection against pitting of wet sleeve cylinder liners.
  • Reduced hard water scale and excellent hard water stability.

You can help to ensure top performance and the longest service life for your engine coolant. Volvo ELC comes prediluted 50:50 with high-quality water, and it should be kept in that range for maximum engine protection. If you top up your coolant, always use Volvo ELC, and if you add water, it should be deionized or distilled.

Drive with cooling system confidence by having your coolant checked regularly by a Volvo-certified technician who will use a refractometer to make sure it has the right composition and balance. For more information or to schedule a service appointment, call the coolant experts at your nearest Volvo dealership.

Respect for the environment is a core value of Volvo Trucks. Volvo ELC, in its distinctive red color, protects without the need for additives or extenders that are required when standard green coolant is used in heavy-duty applications. Volvo ELC’s advanced silicate-free, phosphate-free formula provides optimal heat transfer properties. And its extended service life means less used coolant to recycle or dispose of.

Fleet managers: Take advantage of the protection, versatility and longer service life of Volvo ELC. It meets or exceeds the requirements for all heavy-duty and stationary engines. Save time, get quick delivery and find regular specials when you order online with SELECT™ Part Store.
