Engine block, need to clean/refill overflow bottle also, Yes-you over paid. Correct type available @ WalMart, Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts, etc. at much lower prices.
Use only silicate free antifreeze for aluminum engines

Excuse me but most of the engine are aluminum now, the most part of manufacturers have to adjust the engines, I agree with you a monitor.
