Re: Coolant Change ! OEM or The Others... (RD)

In my experience, which is also reinforced by other opinions, any coolant you want to use is fine. <br>The rule you have to stick to is: <br>if the oem coolant is orange=stay orange, if it is green=stay green.

Go with OEM. I talked to two dealers, both said that Volvo's coolant is specially made for the type of metal volvo's engine's are made out of. I dont remember the details, but he said only one aftermarket product coolant was safe to use.
