They give your engine and cooling system optimal protection against boil overs, heat damage, and corrosion.

What happens if you use the wrong coolant?
Mixing different engine coolants or using the wrong coolant can impair the performance of the special additive packages; this can result in increased corrosion to the radiator. Using the wrong engine coolant can gradually lead to corrosion and damage to the water pump, radiator, radiator hoses and cylinder gasket.
Can you drive with low coolant?
The coolant is important in cooling the engine of your car. The fuel and air mixture produces a lot of heat which has to be dissipated. If this heat isn’t dissipated, it can lead to serious engine damage. It is not advisable to drive or run your car with low coolant because it can lead to damage to your engine.
Does it matter what coolant I put in my car?
Well, you use the coolant that is specified in your owner’s manual.
