Please...you could leave that water sit for hours at 20º and it wouldn't hurt a damn thing.Water running through radiator + 20 degrees = fial
Sears' price is $75, I'd just want to know where else would be most recommended or I'm just going to go with that.
Won't it freeze below 32?Please...you could leave that water sit for hours at 20º and it wouldn't hurt a damn thing.
For $75, Sears is going to drain the rad and refill it. Nothing more I'd bet.
What's the rush to do it right now? Buy the stuff, wait for a reasonable day any do it yourself.
Say what you will, but I drain as much as possible from the truck into buckets(heater lines, block drain and rad) then flush it all out on the ground. What little bit of antifreeze is left is very dilute and I make sure not to leave any puddles. Drain again, then refill with 50/50.
Antifreeze cost for this project is minimal really. WalMart brand universal coolant is under $10 a gallon as I recall, pick up two so you have plenty and extra for top offs later on. T-stat is a couple bucks.
Don't forget to use distilled water when you mix your coolant...helps stop buildup in the system.
yeah it works rather well and is recommended by most race sanctioning bodies.Red Line product. (and there are others like it) It's an additive that is supposed to help a vehicle run cooler. The theory is it breaks down some of the barrier between the water and the metal surfaces therefore improving heat transfer.
