RKL, Have you tried www.accessfreightliner.com ?? There's wealth of information in that resource. Have you registered your rig?

When I toured the plant, coolant was being dispensed from a large bulk container. Calling the Oasis Service Center in Gaffney will return the quickest answer. Call 800-FTL-HELP from 8 to 4 in regard to this non emergency question, they will be able to answer your question.

They probably used either Fleetguard or Fleetcharge. As mike noted, your best bet is to call them and they will give you the scoop.

I had them do a coolant flush, refill along with new hoses and a coolant surge tank last year. I asked them if I needed to add antifreeze would Fleetcharge (already mixed...no need to add water) be OK to add. They said yes.

The coolant in the FMMC demo chassis at the Rally in NM was "red".

Gaffney told me the coolant is FleetCharge...It is red and I found the gallon I bought to top off and it is reddish pink....My reservor color is blue..Blue was in before so I am guessing they didn't dump the reservor during the change...After 1000 miles, it is still blue in the reservor...I will drain some out of the system and check to see what is running thru the engine....thanks RKL2
