I had zero issues using the product. I purchased the concentrated gallon of Dex-Cool and diluted it with water to a 50/50 concentration. After mixing the two together, I filled my radiator and filled the funnel. I then started my truck, cranked up the heat to high and waited. Throughout the process I periodically squeezed the upper radiator hose to help circulate the coolant and remove air bubbles. I continued to top off the coolant as it continued to disperse throughout the engine. Once I no longer saw any air bubbles in the coolant and the coolant leveled out, I topped off the reservoir and took it for a drive. No more leaks and runs great.

Great GM Coolant Substitute

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Any DEX-COOL GM Engine

    Comments about CARQUEST Oil & Fluids Cool Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon):

    Use distilled water with this coolant. Tap water will reduce the life of the coolant and potentially harm precious metals within the cooling system.

      Best Uses

        Comments about CARQUEST Oil & Fluids Cool Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon):

        I have previously used the product when doing a coolant flush and or when replacing parts that requires the removal of the coolant. I prefer mixing my own coolant to something other than a 50/50 mixture. Never have had any issues using this product.the jug comes easy to pour when the seal is removed properly. I used this in a vehicle that required six gallons of coolant. I use this vehicle everyday so I need a reliable product. Even for use on higher mileage vehicle without batting an eye.

                Hi Cal, glad to assist you! This coolant can be used in GM cars and trucks requiring DEX-COOL coolant under GM6277M, as well as other cars and light-duty trucks with aluminum radiators. It is compatible with DEX-COOL-approved coolants. However, when it comes to repair and maintenance, it is always recommended referring the vehicle owner's manual for the exact specifications and schedule.
