    coolant does not remove rust it prevents it, to remove rust you need an acid cleaner.

    @Xulfiqar
    How to identify if radiator fan is sucking air from the sides of shrouds not through it. should there be any gap between radiator and shrouds or it should be sealed with some rubber type material????

    the shroud should be sealed to the radiator, it fits just flush, you can use soft foam rubber to help it if the shroud is bad. That way all air is sucked through it not from the sides of the shroud.

    Thanks Bro.
    I noticed my car overheats about 75% in normal city drive and have noticed a 1 inch gap between the radiator and shroud.
    Will close the gap of shroud now.

    By overheat I mean during the months of June till August in 1pm-4 pm, My C/H Guage goes upto 75% of its level while i am using a plain water in radiator...?
    I had two questions to ask...
    1) Is it normal if your car C/H Guage goes upto 75% of its level in peroids mentioned above...?
    2) Will Really Good coolant have the capacity to reduce this overheating issue from 75% to say at 50%...?
