Water or Coolant
What do you use for your engine? Plain water or engine coolant?
I think pwede ngang pure coolant kasi ung sa radiator tubig lang naman ang ilalagay dun e,
so when it comes to being economical, tubig lang talaga for engine coolant? Will there be an effect sa engine if ever puro tubig lang and walang engine coolant? What if it's really hot?
I know some people kasi they just drive during the mornings and evening. Before and after office lang, pero pano kung you leave the house ng hindi ganung time lagi?0
based on my user manual, ang recommended ratio talaga ay 50% coolant / 50% tap water.. but the toyota service advisor suggests to me na 20% coolant / 80% tap water.. mas mainam daw kung distilled (wilkins) yung water.
if u use pure water, mabilis kalawangin yung engine internals at radiator mo..0
D'Transporter iMpOsiBle2iGnOReIt's better to use 100% coolant so you don't alter the formula of the coolant. It is recommended that you have a radiator flush done each year to drain the deposits on the radiator.0
shun_sakurai when in doubt, FLAT OUT!It depends on the maker.
If you use their original coolant Honda will recommend a mix of 65% coolant to 35% water, I think.
For Caltex's coolant 50:50 is fine.0
schlumberger Voltez V fanfor most coolants, recommended ratio is 50:50. the boiling point of the mixture will increase by 50degC. but coolants are expensive so distilled water is fine.0

Coolant is use because of Anti-Corrosion additive, lower freezing (not really applicable in philippines) and higher boiling temp, and lubricating property for water pump, but its thick (medyo malapot), that is the reason why you have to add water to thin it up for easy circulation inside the engine. Water is highly corrosive due to its oxygen content, using distilled water is not advisable, tap water (gripo) will do. Distilled water is for your battery.0
Verbl Kint The Usual Suspectactually, distilled distilled water for the battery ("distilled distilled" is not a typo)0

How can you double distille a distilled water, I ran a distilling plant in the Navy and I never heard such thing as "distilled distilled water" and we take distilled water from the evaporator (which just distilled (boiled) once) for our battery, before we add chemical (bromine) for human consumption.0
Verbl Kint The Usual SuspectDouble distilled water (ddH2O) is prepared by double distillation of deionized water. It is used, among other things, when single distillation does not lead to sufficiently pure water...
The above is from wikipedia.
You may want to read the labels for the "battery water" they are selling in the commercial market.0
SeminaristaKuno MemberDepends on the coolant pa rin. Mitsubishi, however, sells pre-mixed coolant so no water needed. You have to drain your cooling system before using this.
Ako plain drinking water. Pwede rin sana tap water kaso puro minerals at deposits ang tubig namin.0
shun_sakurai when in doubt, FLAT OUT!Doesn't using just water corrode radiator fins?0
