Why do you have to put orange colored antifreeze in your 05 silverado?

Chevy says that the orange antifreeze STOPS corrosion and cools better then any other color. That is still to be proven to me. You can put ANY color you want too in it as long as you don't MIX the colors. There is a type of antifreeze that they sell and say you can mix it with any color but I don't like that ideal. Put orange back in it if that's what is in it now. It is very HARD to get ALL of the antifreeze out of the system / ENGINE So you can change the color.

What does it mean when it says service engine soon light comes on a 1998 Chevrolet truck?

If you have another light that says Check Engine, then the Service Engine Soon light means to change the oil/filter or perform some other maintenance item as listed in your owner's manual. You will see the other light when you turn on the ignition. If however there is no Check Engine light, this light means there is a problem with the emissions system.
