Can You Mix Orange Antifreeze Green Antifreeze?

Answer

You can not mix the green and the orange freezers as they are not compatible. When mixed together they form a gel-like substance that stops coolant flow and consequently the engine overheats. The water pump overheats and fails due to a lack of lubricant in the coolant, head gaskets blow, heads warp, and the engine suffer major damage.
