Re: Straight water ok???
straight water for any length of time is a bad idea. coolant has some anti corrosive qualities to keep yor system cleaner. also a 50/50 mix has a higher boiling point. water boils at 212F at sea level.for every pound psi of pressure the boiling point raises 3F. so a 15lb cap will raise the boiling point of the coolant system 45F. so a good cap is very crutial.
as for your heater being not so good.
try flushing out your system......
