Hello,

My stock coolant level is low and i want to top up before I go ahead and flush it with Engine Ice. Can one add, say, Engine Ice to the stock coolant, mixing them together? Or is that not advisable.

Thanks,

Jonathan

agree with others, i'm sure u can but it's a waste. just add some antifreeze or some di water, or worst case some hose water if it'll be very short term.

i have some di water, i'll throw that in. DOes Engine Ice deteriorate over time if it's sitting in its container with a closed lid, but has been opened say 2 years ago?

I am in the same boat right now, did u top off the original coolant with engine ice?
I noticed my coolant is BLUE in color, can i just top-off with engine ice or HPC (honda coolant, this is available at the dealer close to my house :))
PS : I am in MICHIGAN.

u can top it off with anything that would normally go in there. may not get benefit from engine ice when mixed, but it's not gonna start melting anything. if it's a small amount di water might be better, just as long as it doesn't get diluted enough to freeze where you're at.
