Color of anti-freeze


#1

Is there a chart to show the differences between the colors …what cars use what?


#2

Use what’s recomended in your owner’s manual.


#3

All antifreezes are normally colorless. Dye is added to identify the various types, as well as to prevent accidental mixing of types. The type you should use for a particular car is specified in the owner’s manual. If you’re still not sure, Prestone makes a universal antifreeze supposedly good for all engines.

I think you are looking for something like this (this is for Zerex products):

I would use this for general info, but use the manufacturer’s recommendations for specific engines.
