Full Version: Anti Freeze
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford Focus Club
Hi , Happy 2012 to you all hope you all have a wonderful year.
I'm confused about my anti freeze. My original anti freeze in my car is the OAT which is a sort of fluorescent orange/pink colour. I bought a ready mixed bottle from Halfords which is same colour, I bought another one the other day from T.M.S which is described as OAT, but is more of a red colour and not fluorescent. I'm confused now is it still ok to use as the colour is differant. If your wondering why I'm buying so much its because I have a leak, my mechanic tells me my external pump is faulty. I am having a new pump next month when my bank balance has gotton over Christmas.
zev :D
Anti freeze comes in all sorts of colours (although red/pink and blue/green are the most common). As long as it is to the spec you should have it will be fine. TBH, if you have a leak then any coolant is going to always be better than none anyway! ;)


Thanks, feel bit more at ease about using it now.
As long as its OAT i don't see why there should be an issue. the new ford stuff is a translucent purple colour but you can still mix it with the orange stuff
