Are you referring to Dexcool?  If so, keep that crap out of anything
you care about. It's been the source of multiple class action

Also, "phosphate free" coolants aren't phosphate free.  They're also
not silicate free.  Read the label or their website sometime- Prestone
launches into a "gee, phosphates just aren't a problem anymore" bunch
of BS trying to cover what is blatant mis-advertising.

The Pentosin stuff is what works best.  I think it'd be interesting
some time to compare thermostat/radiator failure rates to what coolant
people use...
