A 1996 Pontiac Sunfire uses Dexcool coolant. This should only be mixed with distilled water, never tap water. Replace the coolant every 2 years or as needed.

That all depends on what kind of antifreeze was in there before.

If you mix colors your system will become clogged with antifreeze jello :(

I asked this question of a local radiator shop awhile back. The answer was, to use antifreeze of the same color that is currently in the car. My car is a '96 with 200,000 miles on the OD. In that case, they said use anything that's available. Right now, I'm using PEAK, diluted 50/50 with water. FriPilot
