Hi all.

Wanting to change the coolant (and thermostat) on my newly acquired V6. Simple drain, flush and refill. I believe Paraflu Up is the correct stuff and it generally seems to come in 1ltr concentrates.

Can anyone advise how much would be required for this job and suggestions of suitable alternatives would be appreciated.

Richard.

Triple QX Concentrated Anti Freeze & Summer Coolant. Total capacity 11.7litres, so 5 litres is more than enough. Used in January 2020.
Thank you Mr krisp ;) Your input is always appreciated. Damn sight cheaper and easier to get hold of than the Petronas stuff.

The coolant appears to have some sort of slight contamination (oil or oily at least) and coupled with a wandering temp gauge I'm changing it along with the thermostat. Might be nothing but it's peace of mind more than anything else.

Bit of weep from one of the oil cooler pipes too around the rubber holding block but that's another thread.
