What is the difference between red and green antifreeze?
Besides, can you mix red and green antifreeze?
It often can last five years or 150,000 miles. So it's a better antifreeze to use. Now, if you mix them--they are not supposed to be mixed--but if you mix them it's not like mixing an acid and a base and you are not going to have and explosion or anything like that.
Likewise, what happens if you use the wrong color antifreeze? Mixing different engine coolants or using the wrong coolant can impair the performance of the special additive packages; this can result in increased corrosion to the radiator. Using the wrong engine coolant can gradually lead to corrosion and damage to the water pump, radiator, radiator hoses and cylinder gasket.
Also to know is, what do the different colors of antifreeze mean?
The color of healthy engine coolant is green (for ethylene glycol) or orange (for Dexcool). A rusty color indicates that the rust inhibitor in the coolant has broken down and it can no longer control rust and scale buildup. A milky color indicates the presence of oil in the system.
