    Posted: 19 Jun 2017 at 8:25pm
Noticed the other day the coolant on my 2016 kuga 2.0 diesel was below the minimum...I haven't got a clue which is the corrrext coolant to use?
I am correct in thinking that I can't mix colours?

The current colour is a orange/pink colour.

Iv seen this one in Halfords cheap enough but not sure if it's correct

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductMobileDisplay?catalogId=10151&langId=-1&categoryId=255224&productId=185166&storeId=10001


Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

The colour doesn't indicate the coolant type. You'd be better off going to your dealer as it would be under warranty (it shouldn't be losing coolant and they might top it up for free.)

You can't mix blue with anything.

Orange/pink can be mixed with the purple.

That Halfords one looks fine, I would just top it up with orange/pink and you'll be fine.

Just be aware adding the incorrect coolant can cause sludge to form in the cooling system, blocking the radiator etc.

If you take it to the dealer they can top it up and also register it as a potential fault.
It could save you a headache in future.
