This is the first time I used this brand. I recently swapped out the radiator in my wife's Subaru. I used this Carquest Antifreeze/Coolant and after a couple of weeks everything is functioning just fine.

                • Q:

                  It says it works in all cars but i need to make sure it is just as good as the VW required/approved type so that it will not cause me problems with the cooling system down the road.

                  I don't expect you to know this, but if you can at least help me find out where i can find this info(and the reqirement numbers,) i will be glad to buy this brand instead of the high priced German G13!
                  Thank you!

                  G13 Coolant - 1 Gallon Lilac Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant. G13 is an ethylene glycol/glycerin based extended life antifreeze/coolant that combines the fast healing aluminum protection associated with silicate additives with the extended cooling system protection of organic acid technology. When mixed in the recommended ratio with distilled or demineralized water, its chemical inhibitors protect engine coolant passages, radiator, water pump, and cooling system pipes from corrosion damage. It is both nitrate and phosphate free and compatible with engine gaskets and seal

                    Hi Charly, I'm glad to assist you. This CARQUEST Oil & Fluids Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon) (Part No. ANT 301) should be used by mixing 50% distilled water with this coolant. Adding concentrated (straight, un-mixed) antifreeze/coolant to your cooling system will not harm your radiator or cooling system. However, pure antifreeze will actually absorb heat rather than dissipate it, which will potentially lead to engine overheating.

                    Hello Mike. This antifreeze should be used for just topping off situations. Both antifreezes are green the 50/50 Prediluted antifreeze is mixed with water while the other is straight antifreeze and needs to be mixed with water. Some people find the 50/50 more convenient.
