Antifreeze, contrary to common belief, is not an actual coolant itself. Instead it is an additive that car and van owners can pour into their cooling system to help to lower the freezing point of the various coolants.
Lubricants and fluids, such as antifreeze, are an essential part of the engine and help to keep it healthy and operating at a safe temperature - something that is difficult to regulate as it creates such a large amount of heat when you drive even a relatively short distance. Coolants such as water do a fine job of regualting the temperature of the engine, but on cold mornings water can freeze far too easily if it is left on its own. This means that the engine will be up to running temperature before the coolant is able to thaw and do its job. Antifreeze is used to lower the freezing point of the coolant in the system so that this isn't a problem.
