Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have a Ford F150. I lost my owners manual. What kind of antifreeze can I use? Are there any I cannot?
Your truck takes regular Green Antifreeze. It should be a 50/50 mix with water. Since the truck has green in the engine you shouldn't mix it with any other colored antifreeze, but if you are going to change and flush the system, you can also use the Gold fluid from Ford. The only antifreeze to stay away from is the Dexcool, orange antifreeze. It doesn't have the lubricating additives needed for these engines. Hope this helps.
