#13 of 15 Replacing DexCool
Jul 17, 2009 (8:32 pm)
I have a 1996 Olds 88. I am thinking about replacing the DexCool coolant in it. I've heard that this coolant causes a lot of problems with leakage and corrosion, particularly with the intake manifold.
Do you recommend that I flush the DexCool out?
Should I do a "power flush"?
And what coolant should I use instead of DexCool?

I just replaced the intake manifold gaskets in my 1996 chevy c1500 5.7L about two months ago.The water pump was right behind that. I was aware that there were lawsuits in other states,but not in WA. Is there any way to re coop my losses on this one?

I replaced the dexcool with the green about two months ago after learning that my intake manifold gaskets were leaking. Then a month later,the water pump. They say its ok to do,but have to get ALL the dexcrap out!! I had the work done at a shop. Dont know what to tell you on the power flush. Google "dexcool issues" and and read up on it and you should be convinced to make the switch to green.
