So wait, there's nothing wrong with dex-cool? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

.. It'* like , I like that place a LOT.. but sometimes, things just bother me about that forum.

I mean, every forum will never be perfect.. but.. would these cars be recalled for anything else? Everyone believes something different, I guess.

Not a single DEX info page that I've seen has EVER researched the physical and chemical interaction between the gasket material and the chemical components in the DEX.

My page now takes up to 10k hits a month (10.3k is my record so far).

Did I PROVE it? No. But I think I've made the best TECHNICAL argument to date. And alot of shops and sources out there agree with me. Before AND after my page hit the public.
I'm willing to bet you have a few old gaskets laying around your place. Cut some up and put them in some jars. Then fill those jars with different kinds of coolent. Even do a disstiled water as a control. Label them and let them sit on teh shelf for some period of time. Take pictures every few months. If there'* a reaction, it will show. Then there'* your proof.
That'* something I thought of, but I'd also have to take into account heat and compression. Without those physical factors, none of the data would truly relate. Besides, the point is moot. Nylon66 is a poor choice of gasket material for an environment that can become (and will over time) acidic.

Lose the DEX. That'* all you need to do. The aluminum gaskets are a nice upgrade also.
