    Default Re: Flush coolant on my s220 help

    It came with propylene-glychol anti-freeze from factory. It is not a good idea to mix with the more common ethylene-glychol. Both work fine but you need to flush radiator and engine before changint to different type of anti-freeze. The additives of the 2 types tend to react against each other, forming a sludge that can plug coolant passages in the engine & head gasket.
