In Reply to: Is it normal for the coolant to drop 3-4 inches posted by bill on June 13, 2000 at 15:40:12:


: below the "full" line within a 4 month period for a forced induction car? This is second time i've had to add coolant after my SC installation. The first time it happened, I was told not to worry since the shop had flushed out my radiator and air bubbles probably caused the radiator to "burp" causing the coolant to overflow, etc.
: this time, im not so sure? I havent noticed any leaks, etc., so Im wondering if this is normal. Any suggestions?

: Also, is it really necessary to use a 50/50 coolant/H20 mixture when only adding about a 1 1/2 cups of coolant? Surprisingly that's all that was required to fill it to the "full" line. What are some of the problems that I might run into by not using the proper coolant/H20 mix?
