Re: Coolant ???

Go to International and get their pre-charged Fleetrite coolant. Good stuff that does not need the SCA additive.

Re: Coolant ???

The additive fights cavitation that can lead to pinholes inside the block. A Ph test can tell if the coolant is within spec.

Do the DELO ELC, I've had mine done for a couple of months, and I'll never have to worry about adding the fw-16 additive for at least 300,000miles.

Re: Coolant ???

i'm on the delo elc band wagon but, you must flush properly, a couple percent of the green coolaid is enough to contaminate the elc. i gave j.v. proper flush method a week or two ago. if you need it i will find it for you if you can't. yours is probably gold, thats why your having a problem with the shade, unless your color blind, then you have problems between greens and reds!

There is a chart that will let you know what the color means that comes with the strips.
