radix intercooler in cold weather

Recommended Posts

does the intercooler require anything special for sub 0 weather like mixing the water with antifreeze? is this easy to do? i live in northern alberta where i wont see above 0 for another 2 months. thanks for the replies.

:chevy: You should have some Dex-Cool mixed in there. JUst check it with a regular tester, and make sure it's good to -30. I've never really checked mine, but it's a light red in color, and I haven't had any problems in winter in Pittsburgh.

:chevy: Dex-Cool is the GM coolant. Should be mixed 50/50 with water. You can buy premixed 50/50 Dex Cool at WalMart, or just about any parts place. :driving::driving: Edited by wkdivr

DexCool is the GM Approved antifreeze... some people swear by it others hate it. i used it n my old 2000 chevy without any problems and my new SS has it but i know it MUST NOT BE MIXED WITH OTHER COLOR ANTIFREEZES.

DexCool and has already been said 50/50 with water i used distilled water when i replaced it on my 2000, oh and its good for 100,000 miles or 5 years so they claim...
