If it's the amsoil dominator coolant boost. The website says to use water with less than 25ppm chlorine or 50/50 distilled water+coolant but NO distilled water alone. So I guess it really requires coolant to prevent corrosion.

Hey, wanted to mention this earlier, and maybe I did, if you need help with getting anything TIG welded let me know. I can basically guarantee I'm cheaper than anyone else.


Also, sorry to see about the engine... :-(

I used non-chlorinated water

I'm sorry this happens to you and I'm not saying u are the one to blame. I'm just saying based on amsoils description their product most probably necessitates ethyl glycol or some other coolant (from my understanding, correct me if im wrong, english is my 3rd language).

1. No distilled water to be used
2. Yet no water with chlorine of more than 25ppm
3. Can be used with distilled water if it's mixed with coolant

They could have said "Must be mixed with coolant" though.

WOW, this sucks bawls. I'm glad I just stick with regular coolant that isn't Dex-Cool for cars.

Hopefully AMSOIL will help you out on this one.

Not yet... Gotta double check some measurements. TBH, I think I effed up and had debris in the oil system (long story). Not sure what to make of the WPC (wear) on the wrist pins, unless related to oil.
