I used to have problems from stopping the car overheating in the summer. I used a waterless coolant for a couple of years after a friend got me some, (Not sure if it was the Evans one or another make) but it's not freely available here.

After replacing the radiator with one from Arrow Rads in the UK and using a lower temp thermostat and fan switch, don't remember where they came from, possibly Rodney Dickman's or possibly the Fiero Store. I have switched back to the normal green stuff and temps never get much above 1/4 before fans kick in. ( I also needed to replace 1 of the fans).

Now I can use the car in the summer here in the Middle East, OAT 40C+ and it still stays cool :D However the air con is not good and I hate driving with the roof up, so I overheat before the car does.

Recently found some of the small bore coolant hose elbows that go to the throttle body plugged. Cleaning them out has reduced under bonnet temps a lot.

Thanks everyone for the posts.

Jim, interesting to read your positive/neutral experience. Thanks

I think if Waynes car is good in his environment with the low temp thermostat then thats good enough for me - and cheaper than switching to Waterless

Who would have thought a thread about water/no water could be so educational. I've learnt about the low temp thermostat upgrade, the fact that I seem to be the only UK based owner not to have driven my car to and around southern Europe and there is a pedo priest called Ron Dickman :lol:

Now if you were asking the question about an older car with a cast iron block and/or head… the answer might have been completely different.
