Water Wetter

Discussion in 'Fiesta ST Maintenance' started by Methane Herder, Jun 21, 2014.

  1. After seeing posts regarding cooling system problems or deficiencies, I decided to throw a little Redline Water Wetter into the radiator. I took six oz. of coolant out and replaced it with six of Water Wetter. The short term result is about a 2 - 5 deg. F reduction in running temps. I've not had the ability to see single digit changes in operating temperatures before and always wondered whether the stuff actually made a difference. It seems it does help some and for about 10$, it wasn't too expensive.

  4. I've got 6oz of the stuff you can have if you are ever through Evansville. By Redlines recommendations, it's 1 oz per qt of system capacity.

    After my overheating issue last Tuesday in traffic, I was considering the same thing. Glad to know that this stuff actually works with a 50/50 mix (I know it works best with the least amount of glycol possible).

    Pure water actually transfers heat better than a coolant mix.

    Coolant provides good system corrosion protection and provides a good lubricant.
    Coolant is also better to guard against freezing.

    Water Wetter is a better choice if you don't need to worry about freezing.
    Water with Water Wetter provides better cooling a lubricant and corrosion protection.

    If you take your car to the track, you may also find that most tracks will not let you use coolant.

    I have posted this at least once, somewhere on a FiST forum....

    I reduce the amount of antifreeze to meet the actual weather conditions I live in and add water wetter then distilled water to get the best results possible, even with upgraded radiators, no need to have antifreeze that will not freeze far below what you will see. On my really serious street/track cars I change it in the fall and spring to meet the expected demands.
