Which coolant

Post by Strut2k » Wed May 26, 2021 11:15 pm

Hi, 1st time poster and new to forum. Just had my 2014 Pulsar 1.2 Dig-t serviced. However, my coolant level is just below minimum. Thought I'd top it up myself. Went to independent car shop and because I couldn't remember colour of the coolant, staff looked it up in some manual. I got the impression he struggled to find model of my car. Anyhow he insisted it was the Red one I needed. Purchased it, then went to add next day and saw that the existing coolant seems to be Blue. No mention of what type to use in owner's manual. So phoned dealership where I originally purchased the Pulsar. Staff asked around and informed me that it was a Greeny Yellow that I need. Confused, I then phoned Nissan, who referred me to a local dealership who insisted it was Green coolant I need. Should I drain and flush the reservoir and add Green? Or purchase Blue? And why is it currently Blue anyway, if the experts insist it should be Green!? Thanks in advance.

I don't think it really matter with the color. My early car coolant was blue, then i should replace the water pump and belt, the nissan garage change it into green liquid. I've bought an Aisin coolant (Aisin LLC-90001) to top it which is blue and the garage said it is fine so long it is designed for european weather and organic.
