    Look on the bottle when you are buying it, Try to get one that is O.A.T (Organic Acid Technology) usually a red/orange colour. Have a look at the colour of the coolant that is in your car now, if it's a blue colour I would suggest you buy one of the same colour as what's in now or flush it all out of the system and then add O.A.T coolant. Don't mix the two different coolant as together they can corrode the inside of your engine.
