    What type of anti-freeze

    I believe my water pump is beginning to leak and need to add water and some anti-freeze. What type of anti-freeze does this 2006 escalade call for?

    A 50/50% mix of either DEX-COOL or the all makes/all models "green stuff", And distilled water. They both perform exactly the same, and they can be mixed as long as the bottle of the all makes/all models stuff says so.

    The change interval for either should be 2 years, 3 max, regardless of what the owners manual or bottle says.

    I will second MoistCabbage, but just to make sure you have to make sure the "green stuff" is compatible with the DEX-COOL!

    To avoid any confusion down the road just use a 50/50 mix of DEX-COOL again as MoistCabbage stated.

    Be sure to check the condition of your pulleys, tensioners and your small AC Serpentine Belt located to the front lower left of the motor.

    Changing water pump is simple. Just had to do mine a couple months ago and took under and hr to R&R. Easiest one I've ever done. No special tools. Bought my WP at Oreillys for around $100 bucks can't recall of hand but it was way cheaper than dealer and has a lifetime warranty.

    I always use premix for convenience and to ensure proper mixture.
