Guys, I need to top off my coolant on my 98 4.6 HSE. The color looks to be green or blue I will have to open it up. Does anyone know the approved coolant type. I can't really rely on coolant colors....

I asked my local LR dealer/ garage sometime ago - and they said that 94 - 99 RR's use green / blue coolant - 2000 - 2002 use red coolant... - the good thing about the red is that it is "longlife coolant" so you don't have to change it every 2/4 years as prescribed - however I done it anyway - just to be on the safe side.....

Okay you stated in a previous post that GEMS = Green and Bosch = Orange

When I have my coolant flush done can I change to the latest and greatest Dex-Cool Orange stuff used in the Bosch systems even though mine truck is GEMS?

I have heard, don't know if it is true. That the dex-cool/orange coolant, is more corrosive and can cause head gaskets to fail prematurely.
