'87 5KCSTQW Coolant Question
I was just reviewing some records I got with my '87 5KCSTQW a few months
ago. Apparently, a dealer had recently flushed and replaced the coolant
with the phosphate-free coolant as per Audi.
In some work done since I've owned it, I realized that one mechanic
topped it up with regular Prestone and and his ok so did I when I changed
the radiator thermoswitch.
Is there any grave danger to the cooling system in having the mix. I know
it is not recommended but I was wondering if anyone out there has any
first-hand experience or at least knows the science of it all.
