Do we all agree with this reference chart?

Since you asked, FCA/Mopar missing it's new OAT AF introduced 2013. Missing FoMoCo DexCool OAT started 2011-2012.

I prefer to call the Asian AFs a P-HOAT so as not confused with straight OAT like DexCool.

In other words not current enough for my liking.

True now, as they went to a PHOAT premix with longer service interval, same as other Asian makes like Honda. Used to be green concentrate up through ~2008.

Nice chart. Thanks for sharing. I tend to use Prestone Dexcool for GM, and Prestone with Coreguard for G0-5 in my Fords.

Looks like the chart is too old. I understand in 2011 Ford went to the equivalent of Dexcool.

I don't remember any Asian makes ever using G-05, they used conventional green before the modern days of P-HOAT Asian Vehicle type coolants (Mazda dark green, Nissan green or blue, Honda blue, Toyota red or pink).

Some of the Ford clone Mazdas, B-series and Tributes took G-05 when Ford did.

My Hyundai OM calls for standard Ethylene glycol anti freeze. The green stuff. Forester I use a Peak Global. The chart is likely correct, but I would go by the OEM requirements over a color chart.


2010 Forester:122K
2009 Sonata :189K
2010 Tucson:55K

OCI 5K using the cheapest dino oil I can buy,usually NAPA or TSC Travelers oil.

Disagree. Looks like the chart isn't old enough, like my car, but unlike me.

I know for a fact there were cars with water cooled engines prior to 1990 because I have one,

Does it truly call for original green? Almost every manual, including European manuals that I've read, mention ethylene glycol antifreeze. After all, they all are ethylene glycol.

Yes, that is straight out of the OM and what the Hyundai dealerships use as well. The common green stuff though it is the LL. Now our Tuscon has a pinkish red coolant in it that was in there when I bought it . Service records show lower hose thermostat and upper hose replacement was done right before we bought the thing in Feb 2014.It was done by a Shell station. I will likely be rid of both of them long before the coolant life is over, so I will never change coolant on them unless I have a radiator leak, head gasket fail or water pump fail or something like that.

That's interesting to note, but I guess not a total surprise, either. What's really surprising is that the dealerships are maintaining them that way, rather than trying a retrofit to what's currently being used now. wink

Last time I bought coolant at the Infiniti dealer, they were all concerned making sure I buy the correct coolant for the year of my car, since my car was just before the cutoff. Don't worry, I know what I want to buy.
