Default Coolant?

Ok so I bought a 10 ms3 I know it says fl22 coolant which is blue. It looks like it's just water in there tho? No color and now that it's getting hotter out i notice I'm creeping up in temp especially when at a stop. Has anyone heard of just putting water in? I need to obviously add some coolant but I'm not sure if it's just straight water or some type of extremely light performance coolant or what. I tried searching the forums but wasn't able to actually type into the search and kind of tight on time to look thru all of it. Trying to sell this beast tonight. So just need to know what yalls expierence with coolants or just water. I don't want yo just put the fl22 in and f*** something up.

When in doubt, flush it out.

Zerex Asian (racist) is common here or any 'green' coolant. 50/50 mix is the bee's knees item 9!

P.S. Touch yourself for not searching you lazy ass!

you can run the majority of fluid as distilled water if you want, might actually handle heat better, but you need some coolant for lubricating the system. I wouldn't run less than 25% water/75% coolant.

+1 to zerex asian coolant, should be available at most auto parts stores.
