General Motors changed to Dexcool Extended Life coolant in 1996. It is the orange colored coolant. Green coolant will not hurt the system, it must be replaced about 5 times as frequently though. Beware that once you use green coolant in your cooling system, it is very dificult to remove completely if you want to use the extended life coolant in the future.
Dexcool. ORANGE color.
ORANGE is factory.
dex cool orange in color
dex-cool coolant---it is orange in color.
For the 1999 Ford expedition it is recommended that you use the Ford Premium engine coolant which is green in color. You should not use the Ford extended life engine coolant which is orange in color.
it should be like clearish blue color.if its a really dark color then you have a problem
If the engine coolant is rusty color you would need to have the engine cooling system flushed and then a new 50 / 50 mixture of preferably distilled water and antifreeze used to refill the system
Mopar HOAT 5year/100,000 mile coolant. It is pinkish in color.
Motorcraft Premium Engine Coolant ( green color ) or Motorcraft Premium Gold Engine Coolant ( yellow color ) Use the color that came in your vehicle or is in it now
The coolant temperature sensor should be located near the upper coolant hose where it enters the engine block, just a few inches nearer to the windshield. It is usually a gold color.
Looking into the engine, on the far right there is a visible coolant reservoir near the hinge of the hood. On the side of the reservoir closest to the center of the engine, there should be large markings for minimum and maximum fill. Given the bright orange color of the recommended coolant, it should be easy to see the level.
According to the Owner Guide , from the factory it came with either : Motorcraft Premium Engine Coolant ( green - color ) Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A or Motorcraft Premium Gold Engine Coolant ( yellow - color ) Ford specification WSS-M97B51-A1 . Check the engine coolant reservoir . It is a 50 / 50 mix of coolant and distilled water from the factory
1994 Chevy suburban....no coolant leaks...but looses coolant is this an older car? does the car loose engine coolant?
No, color is only the preference of the manufacturer.
1999 SL2 should have what is known as DEXCOOL in the cooling system. It's a GM special coolant that you can obtain at any Autozone or your preferred parts provider. The color in this should be a pinkish color if not orangish. Hope this helps you. DO NOT USE GREEN ANTIFREEZE/COOLANT IN YOUR ENGINE OR MIX COLORS OF COOLANT! YOU WILL CAUSE A GELATIN LIKE SUBSTANCE TO FORM, AND POSSIBLY CLOG/RUIN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM.
Yes it can. check the oil dip stick. if coolant is leaking inside the engine the oil will be "milky" in color.
Its a special blend and its yellow dont put any other color
From Haynes Manual #36071, 1993-2005 Ford Ranger Pick-ups: Recommended coolant type: 50/50 mixture of Motorcraft Premium Engine Coolant (green colored) or Motorcraft Premium Gold Engine Coolant (yellow colored), or equivalent. The manual does not specify a particular color for a particular model Ranger. You might want to check the label under the hood to see if there is a preference for your vehicle. There are 50/50 mixtures on the market that will mix with either color.
It depends on the fluid. Antifreeze is a different color from engine oil.
maybe not. check engine oil for color and quantity. if oil is white to grey, then there is coolant leaking into engine.no pressure might be caused by bad radiator cap.this will also allow coolant to escape
If it still has the original DexCool coolant, it would be a pinkish/red.
Can't be specific, but it should be red. Either an engine logo, the words 'check engine' or both. Should be located right around the other gauges and dummy lights. (check coolant, alternator light, etc)
Could be "Dex-Cool" engine coolant.
Transmission fluid, if you have a bad radiator.
