How to Check Vehicle Antifreeze/ Refrigerant:Coolant or Water?

Testing Antifreeze in vehicle

How do you check the antifreeze and water mixture in the radiator for corrosion?

I will mention the procedure we use at out garage.As per our auto garage experience,

The easiest and simplest manual procedure i will provide.

At shop we use test strips that report the concentration of anti-freeze and the acidity of the coolant. These test strips can be found in most automotive parts stores and are really easy to use. You just dip the test strips in the coolant and compare the color of the test strip to the chart on the bottle they come in. It is a quick and reliable test and lets you know if the acidity of the coolant is at a damaging level. If the coolant is too acidic, the system must be drained and refilled with a 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water. You should test the acidity of your vehicle's cooling system every oil change.
