    Default coolant life?

    Asalam alakum ,
    4 months back i flushed radiator and then used coolant. every thing is fine . but i have noticed the colour of coolant has become darker. green to dark green. water level remain ok most of the time. i rarely have to add water.

    my question is is there any time to drain the coolant mirture and have new one. i mean any expiry.....?

    Normal Coolant life is about 50,000 kms but that is if it is 50/50 mixture of coolant with water. But lately there have been advancements in technology and long life coolants have been introduced. they have life of about 5yrs or 150,000kms. So unless the mixture has detoriated by some other chemicals, it should be fine.

    can you show picture or name the coolant you used?
