As you can see the area around the water pump(I changed it recently for bearing failure) is very clean. I have yet to replace the coolant through out the system, but I did top off with ST all purpose. This is on the Fusion.

If properly maintained Ford Gold/Zerex G-05 is a fine coolant. If run for too long, run too hot or mixed with another coolant you get...



That is FoMoCo Gold mixed with a few gallons of green...the prior owner's idea of a flush. The degas bottle had nice layer of nastiness on it. Flushed, cleaned and refilled with Zerex G-05 and DCA4 and it has been fine.

When I drained/filled my Focus after I got it, I used Peak Global. Got it for like $10/gal at 7-11 nearby. I had lots of scale, etc in my overflow, so I cleaned it out the best I could - I actually think it runs cooler now then when I got it. The dummy gauge on the dash is tad under the halfway point. Scangauge temps are about 170-190 dependant on speeds/load.

What's considered "too hot"? shrug Mine ranges from 192 - 216 (only very shortly if stuck in traffic, otherwise fan kicks in at 212 degree) degrees on a daily basis. Average is about 200. But I replace my G-05 annually and flush/mix it only with distilled water.

IMHO 225-245 for long periods of time, depending on the vehicle of course.
