The cooling system in your vehicle is an important part in the smooth operation of your vehicle’s engine and can be taken for granted. Therefore, it is important to check the coolant regularly, topping it up when necessary, and completely replace the coolant every couple of years, or sooner if you do a lot of driving.
There are three types of coolant on the market – Inorganic Acid Technology (IAT) that is dyed bright green in colour, Organic Acid Technology (OAT) that is dyed several colours ranging from orange to dark green and Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT) that is dyed yellow and orange. The IAT is used mainly for vehicles manufactured before 1996 while OAT and HOAT coolants used for vehicles made after 1996.
Fortunately, car manufacturers often choose one particular type of coolant to use for all of their lines, making it easier to choose the right coolant for your vehicle. If, however, you are unsure what kind of coolant to use for your vehicle, you can look in your owner’s manual or check the manufacturer’s web site.
