Water is coolant!!! Pre mixed coolant comes with anti freeze and sometimes a rust inhibitor, other than that it does same job. Common sense being your guide. Do not use straight water during the winter. Varying ratios of water mixed to antifreeze will actually increase the boiling point in both winter and summer and is more benficial in summer in terms of cooling function. More Coolant/antifreeze less water (mixed) increases boiling point correspondingly. It is of greater benfit to use coolant/antifreeze in your engine because it prevents rust and corrosion in the various parts of cooling system and heating system (heater) and increases the boiling point. Check the coolant/antifreeze container for instructions on mixtures and learn from it.
water pump, oil, water, engine coolant....main cause would be engine coolant, just check to see if you have a leak.
No, low coolant would cause the opposite.
Many things could cause an engine to shake. One, for example, would be low coolant or oil levels.
Coolant is used to keep an engine in a vehicle at a temperature safe for operation. If no coolant is in the reservoir, an engine will not start.
No, if the coolant circulates too quickly it will not have time to cool down and re-cool the engine. The coolant would become extremely hot, and cause your engine to overheat and thus causing possible engine damage.
Coolant Temperature Sensor
I believe that indicates your engine coolant level is low or you have lost your coolant
I would say yes, if oil has mixed with the coolant, that's the most probable cause.
A poor seal or a split.
Engine coolant is formulated to withstand a greater range of temperatures. Not only will it prevent freezing, but in hot weather it raises the boiling point to about 260° F, where pure water would boil at 212° F. The cooling properties are better and it doesn't rust or cause rust.
Yes, If to much leaks out this will cause the engine to over heat, smoke and or stall hence the name engine COOLant :)
If we are talking rain water not engine coolant I would suspect the drains under the cowl are plugged up with debris (leaves and such). If it is engine coolant then I would suspect the heater core is leaking.
No. Excessive pressure will not cause the water to boil off quickley. It will cause the radiaor hose or other components to burst causing loss of coolant. A bad radiator cap can cause high or low pressure; low pressure will cause the coolant to boil at a lower temperature.
engine coolant getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket , cracked or warped head
No. It would cause the coolant and oil to mix and it would look like a Milkshake drain oild and check it.
The engine coolant temp sensor can do that. If you have a check engine light on, have the codes read.
The coolant sensor moniters the coolant temperature. A faulty thermostat could cause the engine to run cool.
Probably coolant in the oil from a blown head gasket which might also cause excessive steam from the tailpipe and hard starting. The coolant also could get into the oil through a crack in the engine block.
Blown head gasket will do it check your coolant for oil in it and your engine oil for coolant it it...
you mean there is coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant either ways sounds like a head gasket problem.
It can do far worse, such as destroy your engine block. I wouldn't worry about your heater core, I would worry about your Engine.
A cracked radiator would leak the fluid out, leaving no coolant for your engine which would cause your engine to overheat and be destroyed pretty quickly. So the answer is NO.
I think you may be referring to coolant leaking from engine? engine coolant or water can leak from any coolant hose or heater hose, waterpump, thermostat housing etc, wurse case the head gasket is leaking coolant externally, need a pro to check it out
The remains of the old coolant can cause the new coolant to fail. Using the wrong type of coolant can also damage the engine.
if your vehicle has computers, this can cause check engine light to come on,as a coolant leak ends up sending trouble message to computer
