I purchased the coolant around April of last year, it has a manufacture date of January 2015. So I thought maybe it was just old coolant even though it has been stored in a cool, dry and dark place all this time.
I decided to buy more of the Pastel Red, the X1 Red, and the new Pastel Extreme in White with some dyes. I received the coolants late last week, the Pastel Red was manufactured in April 2015, so the coolant I just bought is almost a year old and it looks just the same as the first batch I have.
I mixed up the X1 Red and it's too dark, so not going to use that either.
I mixed up half of the Pastel Extreme White, added 12 drops of Red dye, and just have pink fluid now. I added 12 drops of the Deep Red dye, still just have pink color. I'll dump all the dye in there if I need to, but I want a red color like it shows on the Pastel Red picture. I also have Blue dye.
Can anyone give me direction from here. I need RED!
