Does mixing orange and green anti freeze cause problems

The orange antifreeze is dex-cool which is suppose to be better, like comparing synthetic oil vs standard oil. It helps extend the life of the antifreeze. Now they have an ANY COLOR ANTIFREEZE that's green, so as long as its that type then you should be fine. It only helps extend and protect the corrosion factor of parts on the engine. hope this helps

How much anti frezze goes into a 1998 camry

Use a 50/50 mix normally, and red additive not green. If you are in north Alaska or somewhere like that you may need to increase the concentration to 60/40 antifreeze/water, but don't go higher as it loses effectiveness.

I have been adding different engine coolant in my 02 VW Cabrio than what it says in the manual What should I do now? Also i can see the coolant dripping out under my car any ideas and or tips to fix?

Mixing different coolant, red vs green can deteriorate seals for coolant. Leak could be because of this or just loose clamp on hose. Should completely drain system including engine block, flush, and refill with oem or equivelant.

What kind of antifreeze

I would check and see if the vehicle contains Dex-Cool, the orange anti-freeze, or the regular green type anti-freeze. They make an anti-freeze that will mix with either type. Don't mix the green and orange types.

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.

Anti freze place

there will be a cap on top of your radiator and also a reservoir tank near the firewall that will be a semi transparent container holding either orange or green coolant (do not mix the two colors)

Anti frezze and transmission oil mixed

The cooler for the transmission goes through the side tank in the radiator. It burst and caused a leak and the fluids to mix. Be sure to change the filter in the tranny as well as flush it. For the engine and the hoses, leave the t-stat out and run it with plain water and some dawn dish soap to carry as much of the oily residue out of the cooling system. You will need to do this several times, use about 5-6 oz. of soap when you fill the cooling system up to flush the oily mix out.
