I used to use the Honda pre-mix coolant (switched to Water Wetter). Not as cheap as other brands, but it worked well and took out the guesswork.

Yes. I believe it damages the seals in the water pump.

It depends on the brand. You have to use the silicate-free version otherwise it will do a number on the water pump seals. Not sure if it's the green or the orange colored stuff...

Re: Type of Antifreeze Coolant you use?

honda manual says high quality ethanol glygol. which is pretty much the basic green stuff, and when releasing the old fluid which was factory original, it was the same green stuff. it's suitable for aluminium engines.

Automotive parts dealer warned me to not to use the red stuff if that is not what the manual says.

Re: Type of Antifreeze Coolant you use?

Green stuff is primarily antifreeze-proper coolant is distilled water and water wetter-IMO. just remember to put the green stuff back for the winter-if it freezes where you are-then I use the Honda stuff

Just switched to distilled+wetter.

Does WW lose its effectiveness if you use too much? Cuz I used about half the bottle.

You should mix it up as it states on the container. You don't use much. It's 1 ounce (3-4 capfuls) per quart of distilled water. You definitely shouldn't have poured in half a bottle. More isn't better. I'd dump it if I were you and replace it with the correct mixture as stated above.

Ya the whole system is only about 4 quarts. Maybe I'll just drain a couple and add water.
