There are different colors of antifreeze ( green,red and a kinda purple color one ) -- it is not always the color that you are looking for as much as what type. there are two types - propylene glycol and ethylene glycol,, the kind most commonly used in vehicles is the propylene glycol. if you go to your local auto parts store they will have it. make sure you get the water to antifreeze ratio mix correct for the temperature of the area that you live.

Color doesn't make difference as long as it's a good quality Ethylene Glycol solution. Many manufacturers make there's in different colors to exaggerate their brand. BMW is blue, Range Rover is pink, then brand names do the same Prestone is Green, Peak is blue and the list goes on. Get yourself an anti freeze tester from any good auto parts store -- test it for potency and you'll be able to rest assured.

I have a 02 Chevy tahoe....it sounds like coolant rushing throughout the engine while sitting at an idle and about every 2 or 3 days I gotta add coolant its not much also the low coolant light comes on...


I would perform a coolant pressure test because these engines are known for leaking intake manifold gaskets.Check and see if your oil is starting to turn a creamy tan color.

I need a 3rd row seat for a Chevy Tahoe it is a 1996


Salvage yards are a great source for 3rd row seating. Often you can find one that's in almost brand new condition, matching color, pattern and they're a direct fit! Good luck!

Bought a used 1996 s 10 4 cyl. what kind of


Use the cheapest stuff you can find that has ethylene glycol in it.
Walmart sells both Dex-Cool (more expensive) and 'Mixes with any color' coolant of various brands. Just get the kind that mixes with any color and you'll be fine for up to 5 years, according to the label.

A used truck can accomodate the coolant that is inexpensive and have no problems.

Good luck on this one.

Gas smell in the oil.....have to put coolant in often


It sounds as if you have an intake gasket leaking. This will cause both problems. The coolant is probably going out the exhaust. The fuel is probably loading up in the cylinder and leaking past the rings or valve seals.

Chevy tahoe 2002 low coolant light is on. where do you add it


Chevy as most GM cars usually needs Dex-cool antefreeze
But Peak is OK as it can be used to top-off any color of automotive antifreeze including green, yellow, orange, fuschia, blue and red
More info here

Also check the system for leaks. If you need to add coolant at least once a month there is a leak.
Good Luck
