View Full Version : Hot enough to cook tacos

I just found out why TacoVan has been running hot, even with a brand-new radiator.
They filled it with pure coolant instead of 50/50. Drained out a bunch of it and replaced it with purified water, and Presto, runs cool as a cucumber! --- TV

I've heard of that before, it comes from the more is better theory. Glad your running cool now.

Actually, straight water with a rust inhibitant is best if you are in a climate that stays above freezing. Pure antifreeze can kill your water pump due to the increased viscosity. It's also hell on cats and dogs.
