here's some info that may help....

BTW if your low... that might be bad. This stuff is suppose to be changed at 120,000 miles or 10 years.




"another guy reported:
Just got an email back from Old World Industries (the guys that make Peak, Sierra, and other antifreeze brands). They say FL-22 is a Motorcraft extended life coolant and that either Peak Global Lifetime or Peak LongLife Antifreeze can be added to FL-22 without issue. Both of those are silicate free, and at least LongLife is also phosphate free. "

If you can't find it in a local store, I wonder if it would be avialable at a Ford dealer. The engine was designed with Ford and may share a lot of common parts. I'd be curious if they use the same stuff.

So, I got up early and decided to head to school and drop by every single auto parts store I haven't already been to and to retail stores that have auto products. NOTHING! Super WalMart = Nothing. Vaca Valley = Nothing. Pep-Boys = Nothing. So, I decided to bite the bullet after school and go to the dealership. $23 for a frickin gallon! WTF?!?

here's some more info... refering to the Ford specs... do they match Mazda spec requirements? Dunno at the moment.

"Motorcraft dark green antifreeze.
Dark green-colored, longer-life, ethylene glycol-based, engine coolant for use in gasoline engines.

Provides year-round antifreeze, anti-boil and corrosion protection.

A 50/50 mixture of coolant and distilled water provides freeze protection down to -34°F (-37°C) and boiling protection up to 265°F (129°C).

Use only when specified. Do not use this product in systems originally equipped with any green-colored, conventional engine coolant such as Motorcraft® Premium Engine Coolant, meeting Ford Specification ESE-M97B44-A, or with the yellow-colored, longer-life Motorcraft® Premium Gold Engine Coolant, meeting Ford Specification WSS-M97B51-A1, or with any orange-colored, extended-life engine coolant such as Motorcraft® Specialty Orange Engine Coolant, meeting Ford Specification WSS-M97B44-D.

Meets the requirements of WSS-M97B55-A and ASTM D 3306."


Motorcraft dark green antifreeze. VC-10A2

Sorry to dig up this thread.. went to a mazda dealer and they are selling the fl 22 coolant for $30 a gallon, seems a bit expensive to me.. They said I should buy 2 because the car needs a little more than 1 gallon.

Will the car really need more than 1 gallon if I drain it and replace with a new coolant?

Hey Krimson Viper... Been in your shoes before. I had to do a thermostat replacement on a Mazda 6 that required FL22 and guess what... DEALERSHIP ONLY! Do NOT mix it with Dex Cool or any other "auto store coolant" out there... even the orange stuff that says "can be mixed with any coolant"... FL22 is awesome in that it lasts forever... but its pre-mixed (so you cant buy a gallon, add a gallon of distilled water, and voila the 2 gallons you need)... they make you but 2 gallons of the pre-mixed stuff becuase they're a-holes...

Anyway... long story and lots of anger short, Dealership is where you'll get it.
