Car must use red coolant or yellow generic designed for newer than 1995 vehicles. Why you wonder - Red is designed for 272 Degees of total fluid heat and since newer vehicles are Aluminum Motors / Cylinder heads it is required to have a Red / Yellow anti - freeze coolant mix to carry - transfer heat out to radiator to be cooled by wind or Temp sensor turning on radiator fans . The older Green coolant is only good to 230 degrees before boiling over . This green in older engines worked because Iron / Steel engine blocks - cylinder heads Absorbed Large amounts of Heat . 1995 and Newer Aluminum does not absorb heat and will Warp Block - Heads if not kept cool ergo milky looking Oil - Coolant . Be sure to get cocentration to 50% REd or Yellow Coolant to - 50%% Water , this also helps fight heat and will give you good winter proction at cold temps.
