The best coolant for a ford is ford coolant, colour means absolutely bugger all.
I used to use tectalloy but it still had a decent amount of corrosion happening so i moved away from it and only use ford coolant now.

Tectalloy is f**k s**t. I'd rather use my own piss then that crap.

You want to use genuine ford coolant.
Toyota Red is also VERY good.

inhibitor? Might aswell be pouring green cordial in your motor..

Use anitifreeze/boil glycol coolant..minimum 33% mix..and DON'T mix different brand coolants

I personally use the Nulon brand
