ENGINE RUNNING ON WATER

Engine Cooling problem

Hi,

My car is currently running on water instead of coolant due to some problems. Could anybody tell me how long can I safely run my car with water.

Thanks

Hi there,

In the short term this is ok, but it will depend on the quality of the water used, the shorter time you have to do this is better, do not put it off as corrosion will be a long term factor.
