    Default What engine coolant is good for alto 2010

    Hi all, Its been a one year since i have purchased my ALTO 2010. Please note that i have just one time added some water in radiator since last one year and level of water remains the same through out the year. Yesterday, when i noticed the radiator water, i felt some rust mixed with water and blue colour engine coolant disappeared. Now advice which brand and grade of engine coolant should be used in ALTO 2010.

    Caltex orange one works great.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    Coolant got higher boiling and freezing points than water and above all they save your cooling system, Engine head, from rust. Suzuki is famous for rusted heads so one must use coolant in these engines.

    it is better at absorbing and radiating heat. it prevents rusting of the radiator. it doesnt freeze unlike water

    You are right about rust but water actually is a better cooling agent. Coolant or anti freeze plays it role in places with severe and freezing winters.

    @Vaqas1 is right....
    Anti-freez /coolant also increases the boiling point of the water in the radiator system and it also keeps evaporation level to a minimum as antifreeze/coolant dosn't evaporate like water does.

    Ok then why dont we use 100% coolant in our cooling systems?

    Water, with the proper anticorrosion additives, would make an adequate cooling medium for automotive engines. But it freezes, and boils over. Ethylene glycol, an alcohol, is added to extend the boiling and freezing points of the coolant. Why not run pure glycol, and get better freezing/boil-over protection? At concentrations higher then 70 percent or so, freeze protection is not very good. Also,

    ethylene glycol doesn't carry as much heat from the engine to the radiator as an equivalent amount of water, which can result in overheating. Stick with concentrations of 50 percent to 60 percent water/antifreeze.
