Coolant

Recommended Posts

Can I use any old regular type of anti-freeze for my radiators? And just to double check I just fill it all the way up just below the cap correct? I really should get me a service manual :thumbsup:

Crud I had a feeling it would need some specialty crap. I've got a trip I'm heading out for tomorrow and can't make a run to the dealer. All I've got in the garage is this "All Weather" brand - I wonder if it would really hurt it?

Regular car antifreeze has silicates in it....ie. Sand.

supposedly they damage the seals. Some people say that this is BS, but I wouldn't risk it. Get stuff w/o silicates.

The service manual calls for "ethylene glycolbased antifreeze designed for aluminum radiators mixed with distilled water. The percentage of antifreeze should be between 50 to 60%."

You don't have to run special coolants.

The service manual specifies "antifreeze designed for aluminum radiators". Check the side of the bottle and see what it says. Ethylene Glycol based, no alcohol.

Beat me to it Joe :thumbsup:
