    Default Daihatsu Cuore Radiator Coolant

    Aoa

    I have a diahatsu cuore 2005 model , I have been putting water in its radiator since last 4 years. The car has been driven only 43,000 but now I have noticed that even when I drive for 3-4 kilometers , the temperature needle goes more than half of the gauge (almost 60%).

    Does it mean that I need to use a better coolant?
    My friend told me to drain 2 liters of fluid from radiator and add 1litre caltex coolant and 1 litre of water.

    What do you say?

    The minimum recomended concentration for Caltex's Extended Life Coolant is 33% & max is 67% . I m not sure about axact amount of liquid required to be used as coolant in Coure But it shud be around ~5 Liter so to maintain 33% concentration u need ~1.5 Liter of Antifreeze/Coolant so better to drain old plain water, then pour 2 Liter Coolant & rest water(Preferably distelled water).

    On athe other hand, I dont think adding coolant will over come that heating problem u have mention. Bcoz a good/healthy Cooling system can serve as good with Plain water but not recomended for Continous use.

    Before Putting coolant i will recomend u to get ur cars cooling system thoroughly checked. The basic measeure/actions are to verify Leaks in pipes, Servicing of Radiator if Clogged, Replacment of Radiator cap, checkcking Water Pump(Body) function, Proper Operation of Fan including its speed & propoer mounting with Shrouds etc.
    GO through the forum & search with key words u will find several posts & threads concluding such solutions as per recomndations of Sr. Technical Experts of PW.A member @Xulfiqar have replied in deatils on variuos threads to cater such problems so check posts replied by him as well.

    Get you radiator flushed FIRST! and then use caltex coolant in the proper ratio.
