I am having a tough time finding colored antifreeze. They used to make blue colored and green has always been around up to now. The latest color seems to be gold (or almost clear in the reservoir). Does anyone know how still sells green antifreeze?

Thanks

everytime i buy prestone antifreeze its premixed and it is quite green

i had bought a lot of antifreeze in the past months b/c of radiator problems and every brand i bought (at least 4) was green, so, I dunno, maybe you should stop buying antifreeze at 7-11 :tongue:

im sure pepboys will have green, thats where i get all mine. maybe you arent gettin the premixed stuff??

I think the gold is for new cars w/alum radiators . I dont think you can mix them .

Don't take this for 100% fact, but I think the gold/really light green stuff will mix with any antifreeze, namely dex-cool, my new favorite anti-freeze thing is the pre-mixed stuff that they sell for 1 or 2 dollars less than the strait stuff, boy people aren't to bright anymore :confused:

preston has an orangish gold colored stuff that will mix with anything, and is deffinatly better than the corrosive dex-cool. we usually suggest it to our customers on a system flush.

Green is still around. We have it at NAPA. You can't mix Dexcool (pink or orange) with green. It will gel up and make a nasty problem for you. I know Prestone makes some that they say will mix with anything but I don't know if I'd trust it.

Don't use the "mix-with-anything" crap. When I first saw it I lmao :D at it. Texaco and Valuecraft (autozone brand) come in green, so does pennzoil. I'm even going to change my wife's Grand Am to green coolant soon, I hate the orange crap. ;)
