Once it goes through the engine, the water is now hot, and it needs to give off its heat before it can be used to cool the engine again. With water-based antifreeze, the temperature gauge must be watched because when it gets too hot, the antifreeze will boil within the system allowing the engine to overheat. It is not an antifreeze, and it will freeze at 32°F (0°C). Evans TrackWater may create vapor pressure and vapor inside the cooling system and may overheat at excessive operating temperatures. Then I add about a gallon of potable anti-freeze to each water tank and run the pump to distribute it in order to ensure that any low points in the system don’t contain water, which will freeze and cause problems. For example, if I return from a trip and I’m running low on energy, I could turn off the air and do 14-50 for a few hours and then meter it again.
FWIW there was also a gap, somewhere that a starling found (I never found the gap, though I suspect it was somewhere connected to the porch near where it met the garage), then couldn’t find its way out and died, and then a few days later the house was infested with large black flies. I’ll probably also want to install a filter somewhere along the line since its well water. The coolant is a kind of anti-freeze, but often just called water. The 75/ZT doesn’t have a valve in the heater coolant circuit so no need to touch the heater controls. 1. Drain all old water-based coolant out from radiator, block, and heater core if accessible. I drain my hot water heater every 5-6 months to fight this. 4. Allow to cool and drain out Prep Fluid in same manner as old water-based coolant. 3. Fill with Evans Prep Fluid (waterless flush) and run for 15 minutes to circulate.
5. Fill with Evans Waterless Coolant and run for 15 minutes to circulate. Evans recommends inspecting the cooling system at least once a year to ensure water content remains below 3%. An Evans Refractometer maybe used or send a coolant sample to Evans for a free analysis. Excessive water content will lower the boiling point andmay reduce the corrosion protection. Where corrosion is a concern, Evans offers long-term protection but will not necessarily show an improvement in intake-air temperature. It has superior corrosion protection and surface tension reduction as tested against other leading track legal water formulas. Evans TrackWater Coolant: is a paved-track legal water. NPG Coolant: is a 100% propylene glycol coolant that is for use in racing series and track days that allow propylene glycol, but not ethylene glycol. Powersports Coolant: is the appropriate choice for most powersports applications, unless track rules specify a non-ethylene glycol rule. Examples of series with this rule definition (as of today Oct 2018 – always check your rule book; there are other series that are not listed) are CCS/ASRA Road Racing, CRA Road Racing, Xcel Track Days, SoCal Track Days, Brainard Raceway and American Flat Track Racing.
Check with your track manager otherwise. If you have never experienced the frustration, its useful to imaging this type of scenario. Six of those nice cars bought at a price to allow for that did NOT have the “They all do that” scenario. I have also rectified friends cars which have had CHG damage following poor workmanship. Coolant loss leading to overheating due to other reasons like poor pro-workmanship, worn Water Pump, wrong way round fitted Exhaust Manifold Gasket, new radiator with unseen small hole in the core, and jubilee clip cutting into short coolant hose to a Turbocharger all allowing coolant to escape leading to over heating. Is it necessary to change the radiator cap? Top off as necessary. You’re running a 2T, which likely has a cylinder and head shape designed to be run at a very specific CHT. In several cases when there was Cylinder Head Gasket DAMAGE ( they rarely fail ) thick oil coolant mix blocked the whole of the cooling system. Her little Rover 25 being the worst example of Coolant-Oil Mix I’ve ever seen.
Blockages in the cooling system can be due to many reasons from accumulated K-Seal and other Snake Oils as well as thick Oil-Coolant Mix Blockages lurking in the narrower passage ways of the system as for instance the smaller bores in Heater Matrixes and Radiators.. There is a similar solution for cooling that uses chilled water or ice that I am less familiar with. Since its tankless and I can just set the temp digitally I imagine I only need one hot water pipe for the shower. Are you thinking of one of your other cars here? Purchase a coolant heater (gasoline or diesel versions are available). There must be an outlet, or the a return to the heater. As it’s only affecting this concrete area, the main concern I have is it rusting out the water heater and furnace as they sit in it. Intercoolers typically do not see water temps above boiling point, so the benefit of waterless coolant for stabilizing or lowering the temperature is less evident than in the engine radiator.
