    I never purchased any from the dealer. If I needed coolant I would just go down to the local auto parts store and grab some Pentosin Anti-Freeze. They make a correct compatible coolant for our Mirage's.

    first is, what is the Green coolant used? is there a certain coolant in mitsubishi that has this Green color coolant. as i know our mirage can use the 50/50 coolant long life premium which is blue in color. is it ok even if its Green for our mirage?

    second, for the 10kms PMS service does mitsubishi really need not to check the rad if it still has enough liquid inside?
    I am not going to claim to be an expert on this. Personally, I would not mix two different type of coolants in today's engines. I bought a gallon Valvoline Zerex Asian Blue Coolant from Walmart for about $13. It's pre-mixed. Should my overfill container need coolant, I plan on using that.

    This topic has come up before, & someone else pointed out the Valvoline (which matches OEM coolant) @ Walmart.

    Now that's bringing a topic back from the dead.

    Since this topic came back, can you imagine being rich enough to have a driver but still be driven around in one of the cheapest cars on our roads?

    Dirk, fun fact: air conditioning works in 2 ways. It cools the air and (wait for it)...conditions the air by removing moisture. What you're seeing is that moisture removed by the evaporator and exiting the evaporator drain. All is functioning as it should! Keep asking questions, my dude. This is an educational forum!
