Likewise, people ask, can I use diesel coolant in my car?
In fact, the coolant condition in a diesel engine may even be more important than in a gasoline engine. Today’s antifreeze–coolant not only protects from freezing in the winter months, but also helps protect diesel engines from common cavitation issues.
Also Know, what happens if you put the wrong coolant in your car? Mixing different engine coolants or using the wrong coolant can impair the performance of the special additive packages; this can result in increased corrosion to the radiator. Using the wrong engine coolant can gradually lead to corrosion and damage to the water pump, radiator, radiator hoses and cylinder gasket.
In this regard, does it matter what coolant you put in your car?
Well, you use the coolant that is specified in your owner’s manual. If you just need to top it up, the recommendation is still the same, however it is unlikely to cause any serious problems if you add a litre of a different type of coolant, as long as you follow the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule.
