Is extended life antifreeze and coolant?

Mobil Delvac Extended Life 50/50 Prediluted Coolant/Antifreeze is a ready-to-use, phosphate-free, silicate-free, nitrite-free and borate-free, ethylene glycol-based coolant that is designed to provide exceptional wet sleeve liner cavitation and corrosion protection of all cooling system metals.

How many miles does extended life antifreeze last?

Extended life coolants (ELCs) started gaining traction in the heavy-duty trucking and construction equipment industry about a decade ago. These coolants are so good they can in many cases last the life of the engine: 12,000 to 15,000 hours for off-road equipment, 600,000 miles for heavy-duty diesel trucks.

What are extended life coolants?

EXTENDED-life coolants use advanced organic acid technology – which depletes much more slowly than traditional coolant additives – to protect the engine. This eliminates the need to add SCAs, extending coolant service intervals and provide superior heat transfer, cavitation protection, and corrosion protection.

What is Cat ELC coolant?

Cat ELC is ethylene-glycol based for anti-boil and freeze protection, but its corrosion chemical system is different than that of conventional antifreeze/coolants.

What is the red antifreeze?

Red. If you have a red coolant in your cooling system, you have an Extended Life Coolant. This coolant is recommended for use in Toyota, Scion, and Lexus. It can be used in any engine requiring an OAT engine coolant. Red coolant offers 150k miles of protection.

What color is extended life antifreeze?

These ‘Extended Life Coolants’ (ELC), were usually orange in colour and offered a five-year or 100,000-mile change interval. They could be a blend of IAT and OAT chemicals, and were therefore named ‘Hybrids’.

What color is Havoline extended life antifreeze?

Do Toyotas require special antifreeze?

Every car manufacturer, including Toyota has developed its own coolant or requires a specific coolant that is unique to apparent years and models. There are several colors of coolants to help distinguish each including blue, red, yellow, purple green, and orange.

What happens if you never change your coolant?

The coolant can become more acidic over time and lose its rust-inhibiting properties, causing corrosion. Corrosion can damage the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap, hoses and other parts of the cooling system, as well as to the vehicle heater system. And that can cause a car engine to overheat.

What is the difference between extended life coolant and regular?

EXTENDED-LIFE COOLANT: PROS Less maintenance. Extended-life coolants use inhibitor packages that deplete much slower than regular coolants, and are usually good for up to 600,000 miles with an extender added at 300,000 miles, Ulabarro says.

What coolant is compatible with Cat ELC?

Shell ROTELLA® ELC NF Pre-Diluted 60/40 is miscible and compatible with other engine coolant (antifreeze), including Shell ROTELLA® ELC, Shell ROTELLA® ELC Ultra, ShellZone® DEX-COOL®.
