About to change all of my fluids in my 08 700 and noticed the rad fluid is dark brown. Im assuming this is just one of the colors fluid comes in..?? No water in crankcase or anything like that
The coolant in my 08 700 is green and it has 4500 mi on it! Have never seen dark brown coolant that wasn't in an old unmaintained cooling sytem. I would say you should flush your system with 50/50 mix of white vinegar and distilled water. Then flush with just distilled water and then add 50/50 mix of new coolant and distilled water.
