Hey, I saw the post about the water wetter you recomended for "our beasts". I have a '90 S-10 with a 355 V8 crammed under the hood. The motor seemed to always run pretty warm, even with the Vette radiator. I added that Water wetter and now my temp seems to run about 12 degrees cooler. On the Reatta subject, I do not know what the temp reads on my '90. It just lights up 3 light bars on average. Since it does not read at the half way point, I figured i was alright. You people say that your cars run a little warm. What do you consider warm? Should I add the Water Wetter to my Reatta with only 3 lights lit up? confused.gif" border="0cool.gif" border="0

Reatta_Cruzin;<BR>You are welcome. Glad it works.<P>The Forum at its best, providing solutions. wink.gif" border="0 <P>Answer, don't know. Thinking out loud. Heat is the enemy. Reducing heat within limits is good. If the Water Wetter causes too much heat to be removed then the thermostat would close slightly returning more warm coolant to the block rather than going through the rad.<P>Therefore I don't think that it would hurt. Did you notice the chart that indicated with a slightly cooler engine with water wetter you get increased torque? grin.gif" border="0smile.gif" border="0grin.gif" border="0 2/3 of the way down page. <A HREF="http://www.redlineoil.com/redlineoil/wwti.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.redlineoil.com/redlineoil/wwti.htm</A> <P>Change in Torque Baseline(water + Redline) -2.1%(50% Glycol) -3.1%(70% Glycol) <P><a href="http://www.redlineoil.com/redlineoil/si1ti.htm"> One of the best fuel injector cleaners there is, even the Bimmer guys love it and it is reasonably priced!</a>

I have seen a number of Buicks that use this pinball dash have the temp right at 12 o'clock. Solid.If yours runs less than this, when warmed up, the thermostat is either missing or stuck open. Had a '90 Reatta that the temp would climb to 3 o'clock, and then back off to 12. It would continue to cycle like this. Apparently the thermostat was late, or lazy; changing the 'stat brought it back to 12 o'clock steady.

Have tried 2, 195* thermostats in 91. Both cause temp. gauge to go and stay at 12 O'clock.<BR> 3 clicks may be too cool to cause engine to go into Loop, give poor gas mileage?
