Make sure it is a universal all makes/models version and not just green antifreeze and it won't be a problem.

Changed anti freeze from Dexcool to prestone will that help prevent blown head caskets?

what i discovered is if the dexcool is mixed properly and changed before it gets sludgy it does not damage gaskets however switching to prestone green can damage the water pump and oxidize the radiator and heater core, the systems are built for certain anti freeze and despite what some mechanics say it is not a good idea to change it. it is also a good idea to replace the thermostat with a fail safe thermostat, when they go bad they get stuck open not closed.

Ive only had my suzuki grand vitara sz4 2 mths but a friend suggested i check the anti freeze level and after just looking its on low, will i need to top it up immediately and what sort should i use? Will...

If it isn't over heating it shouldn't be a problem unless you are seeing water in the engine oil. Add a 50/50 mix of Anti Freeze and water to the over flow bottle to the full mark and allow the closed circulation of the vehicle to bring in what it needs. It is designed to draw fluid from that bottle when needed. Always add fluid to the radiator through that unless you have drained the radiator for some reason. Any good Antifreeze will work. Personally I use Prestone and Prestone has a ready mix available as well to simplify the process.

After I drive my 1999 boxter the pasenger side exterior vent smells like a radiator and vapor comes out.

This is most likely leaking anti-freeze from the heater coil. Radiator Stop-Leak may help but replacement will likely be expensive. When replacing the heater coil, don't fail to rinse the plenum thoroughly. If you don't do this you will forever smell the anti-freeze....It does not evaporate ! That's why it is used. In the thirties and forties, alcohol was the anti-freeze of the day and it boiled off rapidly....results sere seized engine blocks or frozen systems. Thanks to DuPont for Prestone. Take care, Paul

What Anti Freeze can I purchase for a 1998 Nissan Sentra Gxe?

Depends on which anti-freeze is already in the car.
If it is green, use the prestone 50/50 mix.
If it is an orange color, use the prestone dex cool 50/50 mix.

Mysterious 'bottle' in engine of Peugeot 205 (1990)

If there is a small black hose going from that to the radiator, that's for the anti-freeze coolant. That is a special anti-freeze called prestone dex-cool. It's not green like the regular stuff. Now, if the hose is running up toward the windshield, that's windshield washer fluid. Prestone de-ice, that's also colored, and not blue. Just got to make sure which is which.

I topped up my coolant tank with premixed Prestone (green).

Wayne, GM started using Dex-Cool coolant in '96 (u call it red, I call it orange), @that time that was all u could (or should) have used in GM vehicles, my manual even says 'do not mix dex-cool with any other type antifreeze.' But since then, Prestone has come out w/ a formulation for ALL vehicles, and I checked their website, and it states that this new formulation is compatible with all others, regardless of color. So u are ok with topping off w/ the new stuff. Going back to my early school days , I believe orange(red) and green=brown? So, it may not look nice, but your brown coolant is ok. Curt
