Coolant must be silicate and phosphate free. Prestone for 'asian vehicles' is what I have used. Just check label. Can be bought pre-mixed (50-50), or straight.

I have had good success with
Prestone Concentrate Yellow jug 5 years or 150,000 miles with distilled water.
Vacuum pump does a good job of getting bubbles out.

Don't laugh, I put Irish Spring under my hood when I don't drive it for a while to keep the rats from eating the wiring.
Whatever works, friend.

Interestingly enough I just did a coolant flush and change over, I was unsure what was in mine turned out to be the green, but i went to honda bought the blue 1 gallon premix 2 gallons of distilled water and drained and filled with the water then drained and filled with the blue. I am noticing some blue drips on the floor under the radiator I am hoping rad hose but it is so little I can likely ignore it for months if I want to........ lmao
