Hey what's goin on fellas

What brand of radiator fluid do ya'll use? I've usually stuck with Castrol on my other cars, but maybe there's one that's better for the I6's

Cheers Muchly

I use Motorcraft R1-50 (pink) original, anti-corrosion only.

If you want anti-corrosion & anti freeze then Motorcraft R1-32/33.

Just take care to remove all traces of old coolant before changing brands. It is bad practice to mix differant types/brands of coolant.
