50/50 mixture of clean, drinkable water and use only GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or Havoline DEX-COOL coolant. (pinkish-orange in color)

Notice Mixing conventional green (silicated) coolant with DEX-COOL may cause premature engine, heater core or radiator corrosion. It will also degrade the service interval from 5yrs./150,000 miles to 2yrs./30,000 miles (50,000 km) if left in the contaminated condition. If contamination occurs, the cooling system must be flushed twice immediately and re-filled with a 50/50 mixture of DEX-COOL and clean water in order to preserve the enhanced properties and extended service interval of DEX-COOL.
