What brand of antifreeze is red?

Red antifreeze is commercially known as Dexcool® that lasts longer than other types of antifreeze. Green antifreeze is the regular form of antifreeze. Red antifreeze is a developed form of antifreeze.

What is heavy duty antifreeze?

Heavy Duty Engine Coolant is a superior fully formulated engine coolant based on a proprietary formulation of corrosion inhibitors. Heavy Duty is a low silicate, phosphate and amine free ethylene glycol based product. It does not require an additional charge of supplemental coolant additive (SCA) upon initial fill.

What’s the difference between heavy duty antifreeze and regular antifreeze?

Both light and heavy duty antifreeze/coolant must protect against a range of challenges that can arise in a cooling system, but the main difference is protection against pitting cavitation: heavy duty formulations contain inhibitors that protect against cavitation while light duty formulations do not.

What color is heavy-duty antifreeze?

For heavy-duty engines, IATs include supplemental coolant additives (SCAs) that protect the engine from pitting and corrosion. Color: predominantly bright green.

What is heavier antifreeze or water?

Antifreeze is thicker than water, and your water pump has to work harder to pump a thicker coolant mixture through your vehicle’s cooling system. Having too much water can prevent the antifreeze from fighting corrosion and buildup in the cooling and engine system.

Can I mix pink and red coolant?

DO NOT MIX pink and red, they ARE NOT COMPATIBLE! You have an 02 4Runner, yours takes red, mix it with 50% water. Pink is a completely different coolant to the red, its not just premixed red.

What color is heavy duty antifreeze?

What type of antifreeze should I use?

A 50/50 mix antifreeze, green coolant, would be your best bet. Anything that says “safe for older automobiles” would also work. Be careful of “Extended-Life” additives, as these will eat away at older aluminum, and could cause more harm than good.

Is coolant and antifreeze the same?

Antifreeze and coolant are not the same thing because the antifreeze is an undiluted chemical additive that has the ability to reduce the freezing point and increase the boiling point of water-based liquids whereas the coolant is a by-product of water and antifreeze most commonly mixed at a 50:50 ratio.

What is the best antifreeze for a car?

Dex-Cool is the antifreeze recommended by General Motors, the company that makes Chevys , as the best antifreeze for their automobiles. It is an orange color, to truly differentiate it, and is an extended-life coolant, known to work up to 100,000 miles.

What is antifreeze’s purpose?

As the name suggests; Antifreeze Coolant is necessary to reduce the freezing point of your cooling system.

  • it will raise the temperature at which the system will boil.
  • The antifreeze in your engine is also a lubricant for the water pump.
