Probably not. there are some anti freeze products that say they mix with all, but for the most part the reason they don't want a different type is because it either has or doesn't have an additive that doesn't meet the criteria for what they've built. corrosion prohibitors and such.

Would it be okay if I mixed green anti-freeze with red anti-freeze in a 2008 Hyundai Sonata


You have two options. A ..drain coolant, flush your system, add pr oper coolant or b...buy universal coolant and add it. Its preferred that if you don't buy premixed coolant, use distilled wate r to mix with it.

Anything special i need to know when changing my anti-freeze. this is my first time, trying to save money. someone said something about getting the air out? what does that mean?


drain the coolant, connect or close all hoses and drain plugs,start motor and fill radiator with a 50/50 mix of water and anti-freeze, leave engine running,when motor gets hot the thermostat will open allowing the coolant to flow through the motor, in change the anti-freeze will get lower in the radiator thus you continue to fill untill full and the radiator will not except more coolant, ( this is how you get the air out) replace radiator cap and fill reservoir to cold level and your done. Recheck your coolant reservoir after you have driven the vehicle a bit and fill if necessary, do not fill to top, only fill to cool mark. the reservoir is not under pressure so you can fill at any time motor hot or cold

I just changed the radiator. How much antifreeze do I put in?


put a 50/50 mix. remove radiator cap when cold,start car let run 1 min and dump 50/50 mix till full, a little will come out cap when thermostat opens this is normal,when thermostat opens coolant will go down,continue to fill till full,put cap on and fill reservoir to cold mark,check reservoir after you run a day and fill if needed to the full cold mark again

Heater will not blow hot air while truck is idle. When truck is moving hot air blows. There is some clear redish leakage underneth the truck. How can I fix this problem?


You are low on coolant. Find the leak, the red is most likely the coolant.
Coolant comes in 2 colors red and green.
Your leak is probably either a hole in a hose or a faulty water pump. The water pump has a small hole, usually on the bottom, when the seal goes bad, it will leak there. The only fix is a new water pump.

If it is a hose, just replace it. Make sure when you fill it that you fill the radiator and the overflow, just filling the overflow could cause it to over heat.
Also, depending on your climate, you need to mix your anti-freeze with 30-50% water. If you live in a very cold climate, you want to go with 30%water-70%anti-freeze.
Make sure that you use the right anti-freeze. red with red, green with green. Some green ones are now compatible with the red, if you change the color, make sure it is compatible.

What type of anti freeze should I add?


Suzuki forenza uses Green silica based anti-freeze. If you mix the wrong kind with it, it will gum up your thermostat (90 dollars) and potentially mess with some of the smaller cooling fluid tubes and passages. Not to mention, the water pump is not to fond of gritty fluid. So if you see discoloration in the bright green fluid, better drain it, flush the system out with a garden hose for 5 to 10 minutes, and refill it with new fluid.
