what kind of coolant?
hi, i am new user from panama...
I just bought a 2.0l evoque but because of my bad luck, less than a week after buying it from the dealership,
i hit a dog at 100mph I was sorry for the dog, but crap, my car was damaged...
with almost no visible damage, some scratches, some plastic mouldings came off and the bumper didnt break
and the camera stopped working (not sure if cables came off or what... i will check)
BUT it leaked all the coolant!!! all the reservoir empty but no visible damage.... i think is from the intercooler?? (maybe, not sure if leaks oil or coolant)
and today is saturday... so i need to wait till monday so the dealership can check it
until then, i want to make sure if any hose came off or what... so if i can repair it, i want to make sure that
i use the correct coolant... Is green, what kind is it?
i have some prestone 50/50 coolant, it says it will work on any car... not sure...

The coolant is orange. I'm using Havoline/Chevron Extended Life Dex-Cool, that was closest to the product spec'd in the owners manual that I could find.
2012 5 Door, Santorini Black over Lunar/Ivory Interior, Dynamic Premium Package, Climate Comfort Pack, Satellite & HD Radio, Style 7 20" Shadow Chrome Wheels with Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season tires, RR Wheel Locks, XPel Clear Paint Protection, Lexerd Infotainment Screen Saver, RR Loadspace Rubber Mat, Lloyd's Clear Carpet Mats and Escort Solo Radar Protection. Now that's the way I roll.
shit, it was green because the impact broke the radiator (orange fluid) and washing fluid (blue) and they mixed
i need to replace the radiator, intercooler, and bumper... what a shitty day
