    Coolant fluid for a 308

    Has anyone got any sources for finding this out? My coolant fluid is low, but the handbook just says to top it up, and reading on halfords it appears there is either a blue or red coolant depending on OAT(?). Mine does appear red but again I don't know if there's just one red type.
    Am I going to have to contact Peugeot to get the correct one?

    It's a Peugeot 308 (2008) HDi 110 Diesel

    Not sure of the differences, Anti Freeze is anti-freeze as far as I was aware + I dont know much about diesels. Just ask them in your local spares-world/Halfords etc.. they will check for you.

    It depends on the age of the car, need to double check but i believe red is for newer engines. There is only two types, red and blue.

    Don't know if it's of any use as the forum is blocked here, but Google showed up Which Antifreeze? - Peugeot Forums which looked promising with the description blurb.

    Halfords Advanced Anti Freeze & Coolant Concentrate ... It has a 5year life and is suitable for all year use as a coolant and anti freeze. ... Peugeot Models, 106, 107, 1007, 205, 206, 207, 306, 307, 308, 3008 ...

    try and not mix colours , Mixing Green and Either red or blue can sometimes cause skank in the headertank ( which resembles HGF)

    well mine looks a sort of reddish pink, not a deep red, but im assuming if the only ones are red/green/blue it'd be glaringly obvious if it was one of the others

    i had the same dilema .. it was green but had been topping up with blue . My OAT stuff was well past the date it should have been changed .
    In the end as the car was going into the garage for a service i paid them to do a flush and replace with some demon tweaks for life antifreeze , it also changes colour if your car gets HGF .
