No matter what anyone says, Do NOT use conventional coolant. This system was designed for DexCool. As long as you don't run the engine while low on coolant, DexCool is still the best option. To do a complete flush you'll have to tap into the heater hoses...not that easy.

What kind and color of antifreeze should I use in my 98 chevy surburban 5.7 vor tech v8?

The color is not important, some are red and some are yellow while others are the older green standard. Your original coolant was red, it is called DEXCOOL and is sold by the dealer parts dept. If you want to use another brand any coolant labeled "Extended Life" or Long Life" coolant is ok. Most of the newer coolants blend with any type of coolant, this is not true of the OEM DEXCOOL installed by the factory.

Is there a specific type of engine coolant for my 2005 grand prix? My mechanic says my coolant needs to be flushed and replaced with the proper type of coolant. There is no rust in my coolant.

Hello restrada.

Your Pontiac original specification calls for Dexcool coolant.
This is an orange colored fluid.
If the green regular type has been added the system should be flushed and refilled with Dexcool.

Thank you for using FixYa.

What type of coolant came in my 2005 chevy aveo? I just need to know whether to add the orange kind or the green.

Your car originally came with DexCool (the red/orange kind).

If you are topping off, use the same.

However, if you are completely draining/flushing the system, you may want to consider switching over to the green Ethylene Glycol type (but don't mix the two). Many folks have reported premature wear/failure of cooling system components with the DexCool.

Also, you can now buy coolant that is compatible with both (it will say so on the label).

What type of coolent for 1999 chevy astro

Hello! Your van most likely still has the coolant that was in it from the factory - which would be DexCool. If you can see it in the coolant overflow, and it is orange-ish in color - it's DexCool (or possibly a DexCool-friendly brand). I would suggest a full, and thorough coolant system flush - and then refill with the green stuff. If your van does have DexCool - you CAN NOT mix it with anything that does not implicitly state that is compatible. If you do - it will harden and congeal and ruin your coolant system - and perhaps even your engine.

Hope this helps!

My 02 town & country blows cold air and run hot

Check the coolant level and thermostate. Also check if the water pump is running. Also check/replace the radiator cap (ask for recommended one). Also check the coolant color (ENGINE SHOULD BE NOT RUNNING AND COLD, NOT HOT). If you see it has rust pieces in it (not orange as the usual color of DexCool used for GM vehicles) you might need to do the radiator and/or cooling system flush.
Good Luck

Dexcool vs Green coolant

Dexcool is an extended life coolant-you cannot mix the 2 or you you will have serious issues. If you are going to switch over the the dexcool from the green you need to flush the entire cooling system.
