Oh no, now you're going to restart the great Water Wetter debate.

I assume you mean 90 C. I wish my 300D would stay at 90C in traffic. I don't believe the thermostat is even fully open until about 95C. I didn't see much result from WW. I found a good flush and refill with 50/50 MB antifreeze was more useful. Let us know if it does anything for you.

That's exactly what I was going to do... flush the whole system, refill with MB coolant 50/50 and add Water Wetter for good measures.

School is finally over tomorrow so I have two weeks before fall begins.

Plans:
change tranny fluid (REDLINE MTL)
change rear differential fluid (MOBIL 1 Synthetic)
put in new CD player
change front speakers
add larger speakers in the rear
change oil
run Diesel Fuel Catalyst directly to injectors

I will be a busy "bee" for a few days. I have everything mentioned - I just need to put it in.

I wouldn't be snorting that stuff. Read what the label says about inhaling vapors.

R.d.f.c.

Kamil,

The picture you uploaded is of Redline's GASOLINE fuel cleaner additive.


Your print describes the correct Diesel Fuel Catalyst , It is addictive!

I was a Redline Diesel Fuel catalyst addict UNTIL I found the BG line of additives. Now dont get me wrong, the Redline stuff works great, but I found that BG's fuel additives work even BETTER. If any of you fuel additive addicts can get hold of BG's diesel fuel additive, or the stronger BG 44K additive, TRY IT. Seems I gained more pwoer and even smoother running engine operation when I used BG after running Redline.

Happy Motoring
