Hi all.

I was loaning our mazda to my mom and dad the other day. Apparently my dad saw it was a bit low on coolant and added about 0.25 litres of consentrated conventinal blue coolant for aluminium and cast iron engines/coolers. As far as i can see it is nap free.

However the car should use the green mazda lf22 coolant. Am i looking at future problems here after my dad mixed the lf22 with the bit og conventional blue? Will it start eating the engine or?

Thanks
SÝren Hansen

Wow, it would seem you guys over there have different colored coolant. I would not think that amount would hurt anything.

I've added non fl22 to fl22 before with no long term issues. You should be fine.

Thanks all.

I can think of blue, red, yellow, pink, orange and green. Think it is about that.

Messured the Freezing point at the coolant today. It was - 57 celcius. Aint that to low? Can a coolant with a freezing point that low harm the system? Thanks all.

Fl22 is 55%/45%coolant to water but I don't think it equates to that low. I think you are only giving up cooling though.
