Blue is fine, but unless you got all the green out, you need to stick with the green change schedule (every 30k) and conditioner.

A bit of unsolicited advice for anyone who's had radiator/cooling problems: replace the upper and lower hoses (if you haven't recently) and whatever your fix may be, keep an eye on your coolant levels and the engine temps.... otherwise, you may be replacing head gaskets very soon.

BTW - Peak Global works just fine in the H6 and is widely available at Menards (often on sale).

Since last summer I have Prestone coolant (yellow bottle) in mine cooling system, I've drained out something blue, it could be OE coolant, don't know what used previous owners or if they did any coolant flush. I don't have any problem with cooling after pouring Prestone.

Haha, I know what you mean about keeping more than one vehicle with the same coolant. I have 4+ vehicles. It is nice to interchange.

As for dents, my Tribeca is a beauty queen with some dents before I got it. I have a hard time with the idea of scratches and dents.

I can tell from your posts that you are a smart guy. AFAIK I would not be using a HOAT coolant in my beca (which I believe Prestone is) but rather an OAT coolant.

You may never experience any issues but I would google "HOAT vs OAT" or "Peak Global" or "Dexcool Clone" if I were you.

Peak Global (not just any old Peak either) will fall closer in line to that requirement. Not sure what you have in Poland but thought I'd comment.

I also found this thread interesting:

In particular, post 11. IMO, better safe than sorry.

Many Subaru users in Poland are using Prestone without any problems and recommending as a good alternative for OEM coolant.
I'm not planing to use Prestone as a LL, but replace every 3-4years if I will keep this car that long ;-)

I'm not suggesting to use Prestone, I'm just sheering with you guys that Prestone so far after 11kkm is gentle with mine engine ;-)
