    Default 5.7 coolant - 03 VY SS

    ORANGE or GREEN ?

    it's got orange in it, but i'm going through and changing the all the fluids

    so the orange is oem GM, but the green goes better with the colour of the car

    no, seriously, can someone give me the pro's and cons of each coolant please

    i've got a bottle here ready for me to change into my car

    the same product comes in a green or a red -- the green is harsh to the environment and the red, when it comes time to change it again, you can just pull the plug in ya driveway and hose it down without any footprint of being there...........apparently

    can't think of the name off hand -- but its supposed to be better for the alloy blocks too

    You've got it back the front crunch. The red will kill your grass of something fierce (i can take a 3 months later pic if you want proof), but it's required for the alloy blocks. Buy the genuine GM stuff if you can. It's made from some petroleum based product and is almost a little oily to the touch, the other green stuff can be corrosive to some alloys. I had to research all this when i got my alloy radiator.
