If it is the Xj d44 and not a modded Tj d44 then I'd take it any day over the 8.25...

Boiled it the other day. I was towing a trailer in 35deg heat, air con on, up a hill. I switch from LPG to petrol and floored it. It has never boiled before so I was surprised to see it boil. I lost about 2L of coolant. I was thinking I may have had the glycol content too high so have replaced the lost coolant with straight water. Why I say this is because I use the highest glycol percent corosion inhibter I can get.

Regards A

Be careful of eth-gly quantities.

Theres a lot of hoohaa about how wonderful its boilover protection is ... but as the Boiling Point table in the link below shows ... 50/50 is only a few degrees extra benefit compared to plain water.


Then when you compare that table - with the Specific Heat table ... which shows that eth-gly is not as good as water - for losing heat in the radiator ....


The boiling point gains are a moot point.

Max 50/50 mix if you want to pretend you live in the northern hemisphere ...
30/70 is ample and Aust. coolant brands even supply 30/70 pre-mixed ...
.... and I use 10/90 off the shelf pre-mix.

Your on the money with you comments !!
The radiator pressure is the key to higher boiling points.
The heat transfer coefficients for EG/water mixes are well below that of straight water. If you have access to a copy of Chemical Engineers Handbook, the theory is explained there.
Well inhibited water is one of the best heat transfer fluids around.

Hope you didnt use Adelaide tap water. should only use rain water or distilled/demineralized water.

Picked up a trans filter kit today from Bursons, around $38 for a Ryco kit which I thought was pretty good, the down side is I need to remove the transfer case and transmission to use this kit..... What's some more work???
