As a scientist and researcher, DEX-COOL® Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant by Prestone is a valuable product to maintain engine cooling and prevent heat damage. In older GM vehicles it is required and that sustains vehicle life. Therefore it is a great value. The concentrated version is then diluted 1:1 which offers significant savings and is simple to do. Pour half into empty coolant container and fill each
with clean fresh water. Presto, you have two (2)
Gallons of great PRESTONE coolant.
Dispose of one container properly when done and save one for the future.

      My '99 Ford Truck radiator has been leaking so I am using more of this Dexcool fluid---water pump will be replaced with week and will keep fluid on hand for the future. Got to baby this truck along---it's got 269,000 miles and I only need about 200,000 more miles out of it!

        Comments about Prestone Dex-Cool Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant, 1 Gal.:

        I' have been a Prestone user for years. I used to use the green color Prestine antifreeze in my General Motors products and it was flawless. When General Motors switched to the pink DexCool and longer life in my system it was right on the mark. I trusted it before and it got even better for my needs. As I've gotten older and still try to keep up with my own maintenance , this product has made my life easier. I just check the specific gravity with my Prestone gauge , also from Advance Auto, in spring and fall and I'm done for the year. This makes my life easier. I always buy the full strength and make my own blend with distilled water. It's a much greater value that way. So I guess you could say i am happy with the product.

              Hi Ruly, I'm glad to assist you! This Prestone DEX-COOL Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant - Part No. AF888 needs to be mixed 50/50 with distilled water before being used in the cooling system so there is no difference between using that product or the prediluted version. Either of those products would be suitable for use in your vehicle.
