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.

Comments about Prestone DEX-COOL Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon):

This coolant is good enough to use to keep your vehicle working as it should, I replaced the fluid while I was replacing hoses, trying to do some often forgotten preventive maintenance.

        Comments about Prestone DEX-COOL Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon):

        Ok, it is a good coolant. Don't waste your money on the premixed stuff they sell in stores. Mix at minimum of 50 to 50 with water or up to 70 % if you are in colder climates. Get more coolant for your money. Don't mix coolant types. It is approved for mixing with other Dex Cool approved coolants. Great for use in light duty trucks and passenger cars. GM approved and that protects your warranty. Dec Cool is great for all motors with aluminium radiators. And alwaya dispose of your used coolant in a proper manner.

                    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.
