I think you just need a 50/50 mix of plain old ethyl glycol, the green stuff. Flush out your system with a garden hose, turn on your heater when you do it. You're supposed to change it every two years according to some mechanics.

Just what I did.
Things to note. I should have done it when it was hotter. I can only pull out like 2 qts at a time. 6 is what the books says. So I pulled and just added water.
Then run it around a bit and did it again.

Will keep track of level and concentration. Most of the time it is too high or too.
Also the fan ran more than it should. Not when it first started but time when I think it should be off. The AC was off all the time I noted this.
It seems better BUT need to put more miles on it.
