I believe it is safe just not in the winter.
NO! Take it to a mechanic immediately. Call AAA at once, if you are a member. Oil is not antifreeze and antifreeze is not oil!
The type of car antifreeze that is safest to the environment is propylene glycol antifreeze. While it is still not totally safe, it is less toxic than other antifreeze.
Yes toothpaste contains antifreeze along with other compounds that help purify the mouth whenever they are in use, tooth paste contains a safe antifreeze not harmful to human's..
I'm pretty sure its the green like alot of older cars. but to be safe get the MULTI use antifreeze.
if you want to kill someone it is
Take the Dog Straight to the vets, just to be safe.
At least 3lts tobe on the safe side
Your engine should be cold ( to be on the safe side) when adding antifreeze/coolant. i let the car sit overnight and then add it.
No. There is no such thing as bearing safe antifreeze. For any kind of car
yes just make sure antifreeze level is topped off and you will make it just watch temp gauge.
It probably called for Dexcool from the factory but you can be safe and just get universal.
Denatured alcohol is drinkable alcohol with something added to it to make it unhealthy to drink. It can be used as a gas antifreeze. So can other alcohols that are not safe to drink from the start and do not have to be denatured.
Jaguar REQUIRES an "Aluminum Safe formulation", and my local Jag mechanic recommends a chemical/pressure flush every 2 years. Any high quality, name brand that is marked as "Safe for aluminum" is sufficient. A chemical reaction can occur inside the coolant system with low quality antifreeze/coolant which can cause corrosion and pitting of aluminum components. The "purple" antifreeze is aluminum safe and non-toxic to prevent injury to you family pets should a leak develope.
Water can be used in an emergency but there is no corrosion protection like a mixture of antifreeze and preferably distilled water ( until the corrosion protection in the antifreeze is " worn out " ) Also , adding just straight water will dilute the antifreeze so the temperature at which the mixture freezes will not be as low
No... polypropylene glycerol is not safe for aquifers ... It is the main ingredient in used in engine coolant or antifreeze.. Ingestion of the chemical will cause kidney failure and very painful death......:(
Any antifreeze that doesn't contain nitrates or phosphates (which can corrode the metal and break down rubber seals in your system) can be used. Many regular automotive brands will state if their product is safe for motorcycles. If it doesn't, don't use it. You can also play it safe and get motorcycle antifreeze at your local bike shop. There are a few exceptions with some of the big bucks foreign bikes. Follow your owners manual to always be sure.
If there is motor oil in the antifreeze reservoir there is a good chance there is also antifreeze in the motor oil. This condition is probably the result of a bad head gasket or a cracked head. Antifreeze mixing with motor oil is a recipe for disaster for the engine. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose the situation soon as possible to hopefully avoid even more costly repairs.
any antifreeze will work but the 98 like all newer cars had enviro safe long life type. http://www.valvoline.com/pages/products/product_detail.asp?product=10
Read the owner's manual and buy any antifreeze that meets the requirements listed. The manual calls for Ford Premium Cooling System Fluid, but any water/ethylene glycol based antifreeze solution should be OK. Use the regular green antifreeze, mixed at least 50/50 with water, but never over 70% antifreeze, or just buy it pre-mixed. Make sure it is safe to use with aluminum engine parts. I use Prestone.
The engine of what? The car? And usually, everything must be turned off before its safe to remove or install anything.
It uses green antifreeze.It uses green antifreeze.
Antifreeze is a poison. It can kill you.
