    Engine : 120 8v

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 84000

    Default any coolant do?

    i got the cambelt and waterpump to change soonish when it warms up and i know my collant is over 2years old ,so ,so long as its the red stuff ,does it really matter?
    found a 5ltr bottle of eurocarparts red antifreeze for £8 locally and unless they have some sort of expiry ,dont see why i need to get vx stuff?

    The colour is irrelevant.

    OAT (Organic Acid Technology) antifreeze isn't always red. It can also be orange, Green, pink or blue these days.

    You just have to make sure it's the long life stuff (OAT)

    The Eurocarparts red long life stuff has Organic Acid Inhibiters in it:

    Use the discount code "parts25" and it brings the price down to £12.73 for 5 litres.
