Re: Coolant recommendations


The parts guy at the dealer where I bought my Audi told me that
any anti-freeze marked safe for aluminum (It has to be phosphate
free to be safe for aluminum) was ok.  He said that they go out
and buy it at a discount store when they run out of the expensive
stuff.  I did not ask him what they charge in that case.  He is
really nice.  He has advised me several times of cheaper alternatives
to buying something from the dealer.  I have used Prestone most of
the time.  It is generally on sale for a reasonable price twice a year
or so.

BTW, I am still on my original radiator (13 years), second water pump
(10 years), and my original heater core needs to be replaced.
