Have any of you dumped the Dex-Cool and used the Universal Amber Color type antifreeze.
Like the ones that say "Compatible with ANY antifreeze/ coolant - regardless of color". OR " Amber color will not change the current antifreeze color when used for topping off.
* Provides 150,000 miles or 5 years of maximum protection when a complete cooling system flush and fill is performed.
Any problems with using this as a fresh install after I do my intake gaskets?
I know I used the Green stuff in my 97 Lumina 3.1L for 5 years without any problems after I did the intake gaskets on it.
Any thoughts on using the Amber stuff? (Not Dex-Cool)
There are three technologies currently used for antifreeze/coolants:
Inorganic Additive Technology (IAT), Organic Acid Technology (OAT), and Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT).
While there are some exceptions, antifreeze/coolants with IAT are generally green in color; antifreeze/coolants with OAT are generally orange in color; and antifreeze/coolants with HOAT are generally yellow in color.
