question about coolant
ok just got my 08 back from ford. god bless bumper to bumper warranty.
the radiator was leaking coolant so i took it back and they fixed it, but they told me someone had put in the green coolant, and it was soposed to be orange stuff. the tech went on to say it could mess up the sensors and some other stuff. they wanted me to have the system flushed and wanted 140 bux to do it. i told them no do not flush the system because i did not have 140 dollars for the flush.
so later on he called me said they went ahead and flushed the system, at no charge. so ok cool. i also informed them that i had added coolant for the last 4 weeks because i needed the truck and couldn't get it in for service, and i also went on to say when i bought it it had green coolant in the system so i just kept adding green coolant. so he said ok. when i checked the coolant level today after i got the truck back from service and it cooled down its some slight watery yellow crap in there.
i was miffed because they changed the whole radiator, so the majority of coolant was lost anyways, and whats left would of been diluted down (in my opinion) so when i was speaking with them it sounded fishy and like un needed work. hence why im here asking.
so my question is WTF? green coolant? orange coolant? clear coolant? every pos vehicle i have monkeyed with ran green coolant so did my 94, now this 08 has all kinds of new stuff going on and makin me feel retarded here. so do i have to go get a different blend of coolant for it?
btw i wasent adding strait green coolant i had it in a 50/50 mix.
