MIL's 20080 Rogue seems to be a bit low on coolant. Probably hasn't been topped up in a year or more so I'm not too concerned at this point. A little confused on what to use, though. Manual states
Quote
CHANGING ENGINE COOLANTMajor cooling system repairs should be per-formed by a NISSAN dealer. The serviceprocedures can be found in the appropriateNISSAN Service Manual
but I generally don't go to the dealer for top-up coolant. Any suggestions? Peak OET Asian is listed as 2009+ Nissan applications. The Zerex Asian blue is more and less specific saying it meets all asian vehicle

designed to meet the specifications of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) requiring a blue/green, silicate free, hybrid organic acid technology formulation (HOAT).


Would either be more appropriate? I also have a stash of PGL but that doesn't list any Nissan applications so I figure its out.

Since you already have a stash, the PGL is perfect!
It's just a drain & refill unless you want to screw around with flushing the whole system.
Zerex Asian is also a good one to use(if you didn't already have some PGL). But, I WOULDN'T say that the Zerex Asian is better than PGL(probably same/similar).

And although this MAY NOT BE OPTIMAL, any brand of All Makes/All Models would work as well.

You're looking to top this up, right? Was it so low that you're considering a change? Or just add a few ounces?

If it's just adding, then add it, and don't worry...

If you're adding just a little to bring the reservoir up to the full mark, water, preferably distilled, would be fine. If it needs more, pick up a gallon of factory coolant at at the dealer, but find out why it's low, first.

Just topping up. Reservoir still shows some coolant but its quite low. Might consider doing a drain in spring but for now I just want it full. So the PGL is fine? I'd rather not compromise any freeze protection, though this winter is hardly cold enough to be concerning.

My reservoir always shows low in the Winter and comes back to the "MIN" in the Spring.

Distilled water .

add when parked HOT ( to the overflow ) maybe a tad over the MAX HOT line.

How the trans? Been doing 30k D&F?

Those are good cars.

Had one. Comfortable,

but a little tight in the back seat.

Terrible gas mileage.
