Kicking tires on a 1998 Town Car with the 4.6. It, supposedly, only has 73k miles on it but the older lady selling it says it needs a timing chain. I know the 4.6 is known as a tremendous motor. So I wonder why, with such low mileage, this car may ne

Jump to new posts Re: H2O in gas additives? by MNgopher @ 10/12/17 04:30 PM

If your gasoline is actually E10 (10% ethanol), you really should not need any gas line antifreeze. Once upon a time, we used to use a lot of HEET here to prevent fuel line icing. Since E10 became the norm, the need has been dramatically reduced.

How are the system pressures between the low and high side? Are the blend doors properly switching over between the heater core and evaporator? Did you blindly add refrigerant without checking for leaks and the system high/low side pressures?

I have the itch to go thicker too. I'd thought about the slightly thicker pyb 5W20. I don't see any benefit to using a 0W oil where I live.

You can also purchase "Methyl Hydrate" in larger quantities. Its the primary ingredient in gas line antifreeze. You can also reduce frozen gas lines by keeping your tank as full as possible during extreme cold.

Dont' get me wrong, I like those bikes, but I think the "naked" look has gone on too long! Not to mention it's so much harder to keep clean with all the exposed engine and cooling components.
