Questions & Answers for Prestone Prestone Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant

Question

I have a Buick Car that requires Dex-Cool Antifreeze. I have one gallon of Prestone Dex-Cool and one gallon of Prestone Extended Life Antifreeze.

By mixing these two antifreezes will I get the same quality service or should I go and buy another gallon of Dex-Cool type of Antifreeze?

Thanks, Jesse

yes

a new class of inhibitors, called organic acids. Examples of U.S. brands with these organic acids: Havoline Dex-Cool and Prestone Extended Life, both recommended for five years or 150,000 miles.

Stick with the Dex-Cool. I put a one type fits all (Prestone) anti-freeze in my Cadillac and within an hour a hose blew off. It didn't overheat or anything, but the bypass hose popped off. I put the hose back and replaced the Prestone universal with Prestone Dex-Cool and have never had another problem.

One note if your GM vehicle recommends an additive use it. It is an acid neutralizer and stop leak and it really works. I don't have the part number, but it is in pill form and contains Sal Soda, Turmeric and walnut shell powder--believe it or not--and it is really is good stuff. My Cadillac owners manual stipulates that it be used or the warranty is voided. They may not recommend it for all GM vehicles. It seems that they use it for engines that have aluminum and iron combinations.

I would/and have replaced my dexcool. I used 2 gallons of new dexcool, and I have a gallon of universal for the occasional top-off. By the way my origional dexcool lasted 10 yrs! Good luck, Donnie

I am having the leaking intake issues on a Chevy van. Don't know if I didn't replace the Dexcool in time or mixed with the extended and caused the problem. I am nursing it along and will replace with DEX-Cool when the gaskets are replaced. Why chance it. Change ALL fluids on time with the correct type and don't worry about it.

hello jesse i ran into this dexcol issue in febuary
since you can add prestone extended life to any color coolant, id use prestone extended life, i heard horror stories of dexcol eating at intake gaskets. i replaced my gaskest and flushed system, and only use green prestone extended life. so you will know for later since your question is a month old you probably already made a desision, but if you didnt already switch to green id do it as soon as u can do not wait 5 years as it breaks down much faster than dexcool states. goo luck i love my buicks

Chrysler / Dodge products require a HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) antifreeze. There are only 2 brands available that I have found. The first is Zerex G-05 (its in a gold bottle) and the other is from the dealer. Because of the price difference I prefer the Zerex product. I hope this helps.

Question

Having my volts wagon passat thermostat,water pump and timing belt done

The mechanic wanted me to use the vw brand coolant,but I read all cars and light trucks on the container and also called a rep from the co. to be sure It was safe to use ,yes was the answer.
The only thing is I told him I have a 9 quart capcity in my systemand to use 9 1/2 quarts prestone and 9 1/2 quarts of water.
Problem is I never read to use demineralized water or ??distilled water and I'm assuming he has already used the regular tap water already.
What can I do now,or can I just leave it the way it is? thanks Jim,Fl.
Above I wrote 9 1/2 where I meant 9 1/4 each,coolant/water mix. sorry.

tap water is bad & your mechanic was lazy to go get distilled water for this job! you should have supplied it along w/ your prestone...

tap water has MINERALS & other stuff like chlorine or fluoride in it

9 quart capacity means you should use 4.5 quarts of coolant & 4.5 quarts of distilled water

the european brand is slightly better than the universal prestone, but if you would have used distilled water w/ that mix ~ you will have less chance of internal corrosion that will be caused by those minerals floating around

Whatever fluid or part you are looking for your vehicle the manufacture has specs. Just make sure these products meet those specs. If your vehicle calls for say Dexron II then make sure you buy trans fluid that meets that spec. Many times a fluid say motor oil says it meets several manufactures specs.
