I just use regular Prestone in a 50/50 mix, never had a problem. Make sure to use distilled water or the pre-mixed stuff though, that aluminum radiator doesn't care for tap water.

Yep, typical problem. Wrap the pipe in exhaust wrap, it'll help.

It's exhaust pipe wrap.

It's like a fiberglass...you have to get it wet, use a mask (fiberglass floating in the air) and you need stainless steel zip strips.
