Dexcool Again


Recommended Posts

Big story on the local news this morning about Dexcool. It said that thousands across the country are having radiator and head gasket problems because of Dexcool. They showed corrosion of the radiator cap and the contents of the radiator the color and consistancy of molasses! According to the story, class action suits against GM are pending.

One independent mechanic said it wasn't Dexcool at all but a poorlly designed radiator cap that lets air into the system. I don't know if he knows what he's talking about but he was the "still small voice" defending the Dexcool.

In response, GM said this condition only occurs when the radiator has been run low on fluid for as many as 15k miles (so keep your radiators filled), and that there are thousands of cars out there using Dexcool with no problem.

Betcha we'll hear from Guru on this one, I betcha, betcha!

Dexcool's days are numbered now that

Prestone® has "All Makes All Models Extended

Life Antifreeze/Coolant". There has to be

some truth to the Dexcool claims. If it gums

it gums, running low or not.

What if you were to find out that Prestone's new stuff WAS Dexcool?

Never underestimate the amount of a persons greed.
