Nate is right, be VERY careful with DexCool. After seeing all the reported problems and controversy over it I wouldn't use it. Heck, a few years ago GM and Texaco had a presentation at some industry gathering to deny that there was a problem with DexCool. And then there are all these class action lawsuits.

GM and Texaco apparently designed this crap so it would supposedly last 5 years between changing. But in many cases it is corroding the engine and creating big globs of gook all over, even to the point of clogging the radiator. GM says that may have been from letting air in the system and not keeping the tank toped off. SAY WHAT?

Stick with the old standard green, use distilled water not tap water, or switch to one of the brands put out by people like VW, Audi, MercBenz, etc. We have bad enough problems with the cooling system without adding another issue into the equation.
