Re: found it
Don't be fooled into thinking you don't need to check your nitrite levels in the gold coolant, because it ain't true. I too fell for the gold hype until I tested my coolant a couple weeks ago and it only tested out at 800ppm. 1200ppm is minimum protection with 2.0 being ideal. I took some straight from the bottle and dilluted it with distilled water 50/50 and the results are exactly the same. Do a search and you find lots of good info on this subject. I have since flushed my gold coolant after just 20K and replaced with Fleetrite ELC coolant which is good for 300K, but I will still keep an eye on the protection level.
BTW. I am glad at least you now know what the problem is, be glad you have the ability to fix it because that would be one huge bill from Ferd!!!
