JLM-20404/1 gallon or JLM-20404/3 litre. Jaguar did not use pink 5 year coolant until 2000 my stype

AnswerThere was an update to the yellow coolant because it wascausing a grey sludge to form inside the cooling system, pluggingup the heater cores and t-stat towers.

you can get a copy of this bulliton from your local dealer.it requires an acid flush proccedure and replacing the 2 underintake heater hoses and the t-stat.

According to the 2007 Ford Focus Owner Guide : The engines came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and YELLOW colored antifreeze ( meeting Ford specification WSS-M97B51-A1 ) * I would say no because the green antifreeze specifications are different

Antifreeze is usually bright yellow. There are also a few brands of window de-icer that is yellow too.
