Do I have to find Red Antifreeze or am I able to use Prestone antifreeze?
Hello and good day to you Jean:
First may I say Thank you for Serving are Country in the Guard, From one Vet to other..May God Bless you and Keep you.
Antifreeze is not red....Power Steering Fluid is RED...
May I ask a few Questions??
1. Are you sure you are checking the Antifreeze Reservoir??(this should be a large Plastic Tank, usually white/grayish in color)
2. Have you refereed to your OWNERS MANUAL???
If your Antifreeze is RED in the Reservoir it may be burnt/worn...or you may need a Radiator Flush...or.. something more serious...
Prestone Extended Life is very good Antifreeze...but you may have to dilute it alittle....where as the 50/50 is already to use.....Both are very good.
