    Cool Mehran Radiator Coolant change procedure???

    @capsat @Xulfiqar @afnan.bashir

    AOA experts, my 115000 KM driven mehran has got an issue and I need your help

    Got the radiator detached and cleaned with acid a few month back and filled it with fresh Osaka radiator coolant ( part coolant and part tap water as it was not pre-mixed )

    Since then every few days I checked and the coolant level was fine in the bottle, but recently due to radiator fan shutdown the car over-heated and most coolant was lost. So my dad replaced the lost coolant with water and eventually some of this water evaporated and when I saw this I added a different brand of coolant to top up the water bottle


    Three questions now:

    1) Using a different type of coolant to topup is this okay???

    2) I now see that the water bottle is again empty, could this be due to a poor quality coolant as I don't see any leakage and the radiator is still full???

    3) Should I topup again with Osaka coolant or should I drain this current mixture completely from the system and then add fresh coolant with proper procedure so there is no trapped air, bubbles etc???

    Thanks in advance!

    First get the head gasket checked...although Mehrans Head Gasket is very rugged compared to modern Aluminium Block egines but still get it checked or cheeck it youself..
    Secondly i have noticed that usually after first refil there is some decrease in level of water specially in cars having T valve but for one time only....
    Usually it is not recommended to mix coolants but in case of Osaka you probably shouldnt wory...Osaka is anyways just a colored water...the worst coolant available....i used if for some time and its color seperated and it coloured everyhting green ...radiator cap, radiator walls, resorvior bottle....etc...

    As for draining ....you have to remove the lower hose of the Mehran ...its radiator does not have drain nozzle .....

    you should get the zic coolant... they have started delievring to the home as well now.. visit zicoil.pk or some thing similar page...

    osaka is useless.. use zic caltex, toyota, fuchs..

    you can find fuchs at any hascol outlet. 1250 for 5 liter can.. u need 3 liters..

    also you need to replace the radiator cap with brand new JAPANESE item.. not the sna local stuff..
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..
