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.

                This is a good product, and it has an extended life. Be sure to flush your cooling system multiple times (especially if you are working with an older/neglected cooling system. Don't forget to flush your heater core at the same time. Verify that the recovery feed line is totally clean and it has proper flow. Check your recovery bottle (some are not opaque) and they require extra attention.

                      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.
