What Kind Of Antifreeze Should I Put In A 1998 Silverado?
Posted 23 January 2008 - 09:50 PM
What's a good antifreeze to put in it for now? I dont know what's in it right now and I heard it's not good to mix?
Should I just put normal prestone in it for now or is there something else I should be putting in it?
Thanks for the help.

It's kind of hard to tell what color it is because it's so low. I can barely see down there and there isn't any in the overfill container.
I think it is green. Should I probably put some more green prestone in it to top it off? Or dexcool?

Also, personally I wouldn't run the stuff that mixes with everything. Okay in a pinch, but its probably giving up something to be compatiable with everything.

If you plan to keep the truck, you should take a careful look at the condition of your cooling system FIRST. Some 1996 and ups developed some serious cooling sytem issues. That includes clogging radiators, leaking heater cores, breaking heater hose fittings and leaking intake manifold gaskets (pressure test the cooling system).
So if you plan to keep the truck plan to give these items lots of attention.
