Re: [DML] Coolant Level - Winter Seepage


Excellent question you pose. Why buy pre-diluted?  It's a matter of 
of use, fast and you don't have to buy the distilled water.  I found 
that I'd pour in the full strength stuff and over fill and not have 
for water. 

I guess it's similar to why do people buy things like pre-breaded 
chicken breasts rather than a whole chicken and then de-boning, 
breading and cooking?  Why buy frozen bags of Broccoli rather than 
buying it 
fresh?  LOL!!!   It's simply just easier.  Yeah, it's more expensive 
but when I need to fill my coolant I'd rather not have to mess 
around with how much I've put and then add the same amount of water. 

I could buy the full strength stuff, pour half into another 
container and then refill both with distilled water so it would be 
ready when I need it.  But.....that's too much work to save a few least for me.  

BTW, can you mix the "orange stuff" with the "green stuff"?  Is it 
compatable,  What's the difference?

In another post,it was suggested that ANY leak is bad.  I agree 100% 
but I have been warned to not over tighten.  I think it is really a 
matter of sub-zero temps shrinking a connection just enough to let 
some drips through and when "normal" temps arrive, all is good.  
Next time the car is in for service at Robs I'll have him check the 
water pump and other hoses.  It's done this for the past several 
years while in storage,but I do agree it could make me lax for 
looking for a bigger problem. Thanks for all your advise.
