Re: Forgot how old my antifreeze is
I had about four new gallons of Texaco antifreeze that was over fifteen
years old, maybe close to twenty, and I asked the same question. I
received mixed responses and decided not to use it just in case.
My neighbor snatched it up when I told him I was going to take it to our
neighborhood recycling center. He has been using it in his vehicles
without trouble ever since. I don't go through that much coolant and
don't regret not using it in my vehicle.
