      Hey Scotty, Thinking on buying an 07 Nissan Tiida Sedan manual vs 08 Toyota corolla manual. I know you are not a big fan of Nissans but is the Corolla really that superior? Or they are similar in terms of reliabilty?

                  I added coolant without mixing with water. I don’t even know how much because I just poured up to the line. What do I do now?

                      Hi. I have a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and my temperature gague is going to hot and back to cold, and doesn’t blow hot air. Any suggestions.?

                        Why the hell would you ever change the coolant? I change a filter I spliced into my heater core hose. Then change it when the hot air stops blowing. Every couple of years I toss in about "this much" Boiler chiller anticorrosion goop, and top of the yellow coolant with green coolant. 270,000 miles on a northstar engine. about 18 years with the original factory installed water pump. I poured about 4 ounces of water soluble mineral oil in the green jug about 2 years after I purchased the car, and mixed that concoction with just less of a gallon of tap water. I wanted a little more lubrication than factory stuff.
                        Car still has the factory hoses.

                              Scotty, by far the best coolant is OAT-organic acid technology coolant.

                                        Hey Scotty, I have something funny to tell you, our speedometer broke on a '88 Chevy Silverado, so we use an app on a smart phone to determine the rate of speed, until we have enough money to fix it, but the truck is basically a bunch of rust holding hands.

                                          Another false claim. You can't mix coolants. True if you are talking yellow vs orange. But full strength green can be mixed with either.

                                            God opinions are like azzholes everybody has one. If you use full strength coolant there is zero reason to use distilled water.
                                            How often are you adding new water and coolant? Once every 3-5 years? The fractional amount of minerals in most tap water disappears the moment it heats up, not to mention mixing it with full strength coolant. It would take 50-150 years to destroy a radiator from using tap water with full strength coolant.
                                            Getting sick of this argument. If your radiator is crap it's not going to last no matter what you do.

                                              I read that as much as 40% of coolant remains after any flush. I following this possibility by pouring in my remaining straight coolant then put in 50/50 (-35°F - -40°F).

He noticed a crack in the radiator top tank so he replaced the rad with a used one, but noticed that the replacement rad only had 1 fan on it and his old one had 2. Why would this be?
