Antifreeze

Antifreeze?? the manual said every 2 years. will any brand do? I can mix the 50/50 distilled water no problem. If the color is good and the Hydrometer test shows good would you change it any way?

Mine is a 2008 and haven't changed it yet. I guess I should test it. My truck is a '07 Silverado and I haven't changed it yet.

I don't know if anybody saw this video, but it sounds like good stuff.

Just make sure it is Silicate Free. I use Honda Type II premixed.
