Should my temps be a concern???

Hi, i was towing my buddys blazer last night, wasnt pounding it. My ECT peaked at 218 and EOT peaked at 219. Can i run a coolant addative like Redline water wetter or Royal Purple Engine Ice? I use it in my street stip car and it does make a couple of degrees difference. I am worried if i pound it, they would have climbed higher. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks Joe

Those temps are fine. Once your coolant gets to 225-230 (IIRC), your fan clutch will lock up and your temps will drop off considerably.

after i disconnected the trailer and started pounding it it would hit ect 208 eot 205, i was figuring if it was the pump shouldnt it start leaking out the weap hole? oil is clean, degas bottle has a nice green to it, and im not dumping any white smoke. Mabey if i got a tune something in the tune would help?

ok, i got nervous when i see everybody running lower temps pulling and such, can i run a coolant addative to help a little? To be honest i dont think i have ever herd the clutch fan lock up and kick on yet.

I would be concerned about the green coolant. It should either be gold (Ford factory coolant) or red (EC-1 rated extended life coolant). You might consider flushing to either the gold or red.

But I would suspect that your fan clutch just hasn't locked up since your temps aren't at the right level. You will DEFINITELY hear it when it does.

My buddy who i bought the truck off had to drain and flush all fluids to the truck due to it being a flood truck. I believe he stuck in the advanced green coolant or the prestone green coolant. Will i run into issues with this coolant? Should i just flush it and go get some cat ec-1?

Thanks joe

Yes you should flush it and switch. The green coolant doesn't provide the cavitation protection that the red does. Drain it and flush the green stuff out with distilled water and refill with the red ELC. Make sure to buy the concentrate when you refill not the premix or you won't get the final mix ratio you need.
