The green kind only. Ethylene Glycol is what we use. The good old fashiond stuff.

Yea, if you mix green and red it tuns to gel in your cooling system and you'll have to flush it all out. Not a cheap mistake lol

Buy straight green pristine coolant and equal parts distilled water. You want a mix of 45/55 - 50/50 coolant to water. You can buy 50/50 premix but its double the cost. I also recommend royal purple's product "purple ice" it made a 17 degree difference in my cooling system. Best 10 bucks on am additive ever.

I'm not 100 % sure but I the newer cars may use the orange stuff. I recommend you bust out the owners manual.
