Re: Is it oaky to use Dex-Cool antifreeze instead of the VW stuff (t1hson2)

It may not be compatible. Why take the chance? I'd add as much as 1 qrt of water bnefore I would start thinking about adding coolant.

The mfrs. anymore are very insistent on using their proprietary coolant formula. For something like this, I'd stick with VW.

Volkswagen require phosphate free antifreeze you have to use VW Coolant only dex-cool has phosphates and will ruin the coolant seals in your engine
