It seems like this is a terrible idea in a lot of ways besides the obvious setting off a bomb in your face ways.

Wouldn’t removing all the coolant, even if it was super heated, damage the engine. Or is it basically turbo hosed at that point?

The engine isn't running, so it doesn't need any coolant at the moment.

It'll cool the engine off really quick. Had a coolant hose let go in my Supra once; first the temperature gage went really low, and then it went really high.

Yeah, but then it went back down to zero as I kept driving! It self-cools!

In addition to pressure-cooking your extremities, you can gently caress up a hot engine by doing that. Cooks off all of the coolant - then, where's all the block heat gonna go?

This is what the overflow is for. When pressure in the cooling system exceeds the radiator caps' spring pressure, the overheated water flows out to an overflow tank, or in cars with pressurized tanks separate from the radiator, to the ground.

Never open a hot radiator, leave it sit for an hour.


Radiator caps are pretty interesting little things. For every pound of spring pressure the cap applies, it raises the boiling point inside by 3°F. So instead of boiling over at 212°F, with a 15psi radiator cap (used to be pretty standard), your boil point is 257°F.

His car was overheating well past operating limits, and pissing water/coolant mix into the overflow tank that's designed to take overheating mix. He opened the fill cap, which you're never supposed to do in those situations, thus relieving pressure, which then because physics caused things that were very hot liquid, to become steam at a rapid rate.

Being an idiot.

In the case of knowing nothing about cars, the smart thing to do when your engine overheats is to find a place to park and turn the engine off. It'll be an hour before you can drive another 5 minutes. Doing that risks warping engine parts, because overheating once means it's probably going to keep happening, so just call for a tow.

That idiot probably thought he could take the cap off, fill the radiator with water, and just drive on down the road. And now he has burns as a reward for his ignorance. Read your owners manual thoroughly, especially the warnings, before popping your hood and fiddling with things.

If you had pure water in there, that is.

I think antifreeze has a boiling point around 230-240°F alone, unpressurized, so mixed, it's somewhere in between. It's been a while since I thought about that, but you're right, it's higher with actual coolant than just water.

50/50 glycol and water is 265 under a 15 psi cap. Pure water with water wetter added is 250.
