hello there

there are two types of coolant that were used in your car: your coolant bottle or cap may have a orange or green dot on it.

Orange dot = DEXCOOL
Green dot= Eythelene gycol (green stuff)

All the 97' and UP had dexcool. 96' was the transistion year, some one way some the other.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.
