Cooling liquid

Can I use a red coolant for modern aluminum engines even if the engine has a steel cylinder liner?

Does it not say in your manual what type glycol based coolant? Its important for the seals since they are the ones that errode and loose their abilities prematurely if wrong chemical is used. Most of the time its NBR (nitrile rubber) reals.

Just checked my 08 manual, i found they recommend Motorex Antifreeze which is what i found to be ethylene glycol based.

So the different metal for liner and for cases is not a problem regarding cooling liquid?

Well it shouldn't be a problem. I never really look at the color but rather what the mix is based on and what's in it since it depends on manufacturers. I'd say go! What does the bottle say?

TOTAL GLACELF T is a permanent anti-freeze based on monoethylene glycol and is distinguished by the absence, in its inhibitor package, of amines, nitrites and phosphates. Mixed with water in the recommended percentages it becomes a cooling liquid suitable for all types of circuits present in internal combustion engines.

...when you change the type of coolant, don't forget to flush the system properly with water - some types of coolant don't like each other...
