    Default Coolant top up query

    hi Froggers, can you use any brand of coolant with the same spec code to top up coolant when the water starts getting too clear - not green?
    The bottles say not to use another brand
    Thanks

    Nickc,
    If your water appears clear there's a chance that the coolant content has evaporated away. A complete drain and flush may be the go, no complications with a 504.
    Has your cooling system got a recovery bottle? This will seal the system, doing away with the need to top up.
