When it comes to coolant, the question often arises as to which is the right coolant for your car and what other alternatives are available. Because often there are also high-quality alternative products, which are even officially approved by the vehicle manufacturers. These alternatives, but also the original coolants of the manufacturers (so-called OEM products), can be found in the following table.

Structure of the table
The table is divided into six columns. There you select the make of your vehicle in the first column. In the second column you select now the affiliation of the year of construction. Consequently, you may receive the original coolant of the vehicle manufacturer or an alternative product. In this table, especially the coolants from Glysantin are very present. This is due to the many approvals with which the products are marked. This means that these all-rounders can be used particularly often.
Gasoline – and diesel engines
The use of the radiator antifreeze varies in the fewest cases according to the type of combustion engine. Accordingly, the specifications always apply to the diesel and gasoline engines of the car brands. However, if there are deviations – such as in the case of the Mini – you will find this information in the tabular arrangement of the models.
In this coolant table, you will not find any indication of how much coolant your car needs for a complete change. This is due to the fact that there are sometimes major deviations in the capacities of the cooling systems and therefore a much larger listing would be necessary. However, you can easily find the information on the total amount in the vehicle manual of your car.
