biggest thing to know about coolant is absolutley no leaks. it is a pressurized system. water boils at 212F for each pound of pressure the system holds you get 1 extra degree. so if you have a 16 lbs system that isn't leaking you won't boil untill 228F. most cooling fans don't kick on untill 215-220. this is just a base for only water in the system.
