Hi there,

Just a quick question about coolant, as I'm a bit confused. I have a VAUXHALL CORSA CLUB 16V 1199cc PETROL, 5 Door HATCHBACK (Y reg), and I'm not sure if I need IAT based coolant or OAT based?

Thanks

Is OAT safe to use in my car though?

Absolutely - your vehicle would have been filled with the OAT type when it was new.
The thing to remember is,- the two types must not be mixed together.

I also notice that you've asked this question on another forum recently,- the reply from "taurus" can be 100% trusted,- as he is very knowledgeable regarding vauxhall vehicles.

Hi,

Thanks for your advise!

One other question...

Is there any worthwhile difference between these two coolants:

P.S. Sorry, I'm a bit dumb when it comes to cars lol.
No need to apologise, we all learn through asking questions.
I've read the info on these, and can't see any real difference in them.
The other thing to look out for, is, some come ready to use (ie; diluted 50/50 with water).
I personally would use GM/Vauxhall OAT antifreeze, it doesn't cost much more than other brands.
