What Happens If You Put Green Antifreeze Instead Of Dex Cool?

It doesn’t mix coolants colored green and orange. By mixing together they form gel-like substances, making it impossible for coolant to flow, causing the engine to overheat.

Is Dex-Cool Antifreeze A Problem?

Dexcool was introduced by General Motors in the 1990s to help cool engines. This engine coolant should last for 5 or 150,000 miles, but there are concerns for its quality. An older cooling system with Dexcool shows more acid buildup and rust as the system’s temperature sinks below 0C and oxygen can enter.

Use your nose

Change the coolant if it smells burned. Also change the thermostat; it’s probably gone bad because it was exposed to overheating (or it caused the overheating). Overheating damages the bi-metallic spring that opens and closes the thermostat valve. Most importantly, find out what caused the system to overheat and repair it to avoid major engine damage.
