in some cases the antifreeze will change consistency, it would turn into a "muddy" like substance. As long as the antifreeze you are using is ethylene glycol based, as most are,(Prestone, Peak, Zerex, private label brands) EXCEPT the Sierra brand, they are totally compatible. If your cooling system has any darkness to it that indicates it is time for a cooling system flush.
