Correct Coolant and Bars Tablets - What's Correct
Hi, I have a 1997 SL1 SOHC with 180k miles. We replaced the waterpump, thermostat, reservoir cap (so I don't know if there was originally a dot of some kind or not) and radiator hoses in May of 2012. When they replaced it at the shop they used green coolant (where you mix it yourself) upon filling it again.
I replaced the radiator in September of 2012 and again used green coolant (again where I am mixed it 50/50 myself).
It's overdue for a flush and change, so should i continue using the green coolant or do I need to flush it all out and replace with the Dex-Cool.
Also I have read on here that you should use the ginger root tablets when you do a flush. I found some from Bars Leak and they say they are OEM and to use 2 tablets per gallon of coolant. Also it says if there isn't a radiator cap to place it in one of the radiator hoses.
Before I do anything I just want to make sure i'm on the correct path.
I do most of the minor work on our car (mostly because of the information i have found on this site - Thank you all!)\
Thank you in advance for your help.
