Question about 1995 Buick LeSabre
Most likely Dex-cool, the nasty orange engine eating stuff of lawsuits (try googling dex cool lawsuit for some background.) If the cap on the overflow / expansion tank has orange lettering, it came from the factory with Dex-cool (it will also tell you so.) If it has green lettering on that cap, or doesn't specify, then the old style green stuff is the order of the day.
To make your life easier, there is coolant available which will mix with every other kind, and it only costs a dollar or so additional at the parts store.
If you have Dex-cool, open your radiator cap - the actual one on the radiator, not the overflow - and look for rust or something that looks like Satan's idea of Jell-o. If you see either of those, have your cooling system flushed by a mechanic - it will be money well spent.
Personally, I use the "mix with everything" or G-05 type coolant in my vehicles. Any that had dex-cool or even the old green stuff got the new stuff at the first opportunity. It is long lasting (good for about five years) and tolerant of crunchy water, and will not harm your engine, no matter who built it.
