Title: Radiator Fluid???
Post by: Chuy on June 17, 2015, 02:51:47 PM
I'm swapping my radiator out this weekend with a KOYORAD, has anyone had any issues using off the shelf 50/50 radiator fluid like Peak or Prestone? I'm reading some mixed reviews about using OEM vs OTS fluid. I'm not sure if it really applies with an aftermarket radiator.

Thanks!

Shouldn't have an issue as long as you use the same color as what was in it.

I used Prestone 50/50 no issues with cooling, it seems thats what was in it when I purchased the X. I saw very little to no signs of scaling inside the old radiator.

I've always used the cheap 50/50, never had any issues.
