Ok, a friend of mine very stupidly put "kerosene" in his radiator!!
This became apparent only after a while when one of the hoses came off while he was driving. It turns out he forgot he had the kerosene and picked it up thinking it was his bottle of coolant.
Initially it got a good flush and the radatior needed re-coring as there was scum all over it. It's better but there is still some kero residue in the system and some more scum on the radiator again. How can he totally get that stuff out of there? Is there something you can use to clean the system out?
first of all LOLOL, thats the best radiator job ive heard....
second im not sure what its calle but u can get it from repco its for radiators it eats away all the scum and flushes ur system... just gotta give it a really good flush with the hose... not sure if that helps in anyway but if u can find it its good stuff
um. excuse me for not knowing why, but why the hell did he put kerro in his radiator. is it an ancient radiator cleaner or something?? sounds like a pretty dumb thing to do.. these days, they have specially designed fluids to put into your radiator to clean em out
just hope he hasnt done any damage to his engine by doing this. engines need coolant~!
hoe many kms did it do with the kerro in there?
is this one of THOSE 'my friend........' stories meaning YOU???
yeah id be checking out what possible damge kero could do to the insides of the engine and everything else it touched. if his got a bit of spare cash he could always drive it down to the car yard and do a trade in if his in doubt.
