Antifreeze prevents your engine water from boiling over from freezing during extreme temperatures in different ways.
To prevent overheating, antifreeze pumps through your engine and heater core, where it absorbs excess heat and then runs through the radiator disposing of heat to the outside.
When you mix antifreeze with water it prevents H20 molecules from forming crystal lattices and stops water from freezing until temperatures drop below** negative 30 degrees Fahrenheit**.
