    I read somewhere, that different coloured coolants, shouldn't be mixed; i.e. if you've got pink in you car currently, don't top up with blue.

    Surely the specification of the coolant is the only thing that matters?

    Anybody mixed their colours?

    Your not supposed to mix them, the approach I would take is if the manufacturer was ok for you to mix they would have made them the same colour.

    An update to this thread, it turned out to be the coolant valve leaking rather than just the seal. The car has been back since then because I noticed the coolant had dropped again but they never found any leaks and said it may have been an airlock that has worked itís way out this dropping the level. Will keep an eye on this.

    I've just had a look in the manual and you can mix them, according to the blurb at the bottom of page 390.

    My car goes in on the 21st Jan, it'll be interesting to see if the problem is the same as yours. I'll report back once the car has been repaired.
