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.

    Packaging indicates the 5yr / 150k mi. It does NOT indicate HOAT of OAT requirements. Various Ram trucks require specific types (HOAT / OAT depending on year.
    Take special caution when using coolants and the required vehicle type.

      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.

          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.
