adding coolant question

7 posts in this topic

Both my Explorer and my wife's Grand Cherokee are a little low on coolant. They both have the pink stuff in it. My question is I have a new gallon of the old Green/yellow coolant. Can they be mixed or should I just get rid of the green/yellow stuff and buy the pink stuff? Thanks in advance

pink stuff is 5 year anti freeze, green stuff is 1 year anti freeze. Yeah I know nobody changes their anti freeze but that is what is recommended. No don't mix the two.

They should be flushed and have green added. They shouldnt have pink in them anyway.

Depends on what year.

For example

03 explorer could have green or orange.

03 grand cherokee would have "HOAT" (Hybrid Organic Additive Technology)

Ford has never used Pink coolant, they have used orange coolant in the 99-02 Mercury Cougars, and in the Electric Ford Rangers only. Besides that they have used Gold, or Green. Gold being the extended life, but Ford has never used Pink coolant!

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
