    Default Pink coolant

    Can you buy the pink antifreeze anywhere other than the dealer. Only previously bought blue.

    The two don't mix and react together in a bad way.

    I know what he means, its nice to keep it the same colour.

    Different makes are different colours, I know of, red, pink, orange and green. I have not seen blue. I did find some pink stuff once but have now given up and mixed it Mine is a yucky brown colour!!!

    Its pot luck I'm afraid, buy some and check it...

    VX put longlife in from new. If you mix them they can crystalise and start to foam up I believe. Just use what's already in there.
