Default Thoughts on DexCool

OK so last winter my wifes timing belt went along with a couple bent valves, so at a shop we did the whole deal - she actually ended up with the new plenum too.

Just noticed as I'm checking fluids for her this time that she's got Dexcool in there! It must have been done at the shop that did the timing belt.

So what are folks opinions? I converted from typical green coolant in my firebird to Dexcool with no ill effects, in fact I noticed less corrosion in that old ride.

Its been close to 18 months since she had it done and there are no leaks, no overheats, the car is running like a clock so I'm sorta reluctant (and so is she) to mess with a good thing.

Also I know that the car sat for a while with the heads off and the radiator out so I know that it dripped quite empty in that time. I'd be worried about getting all the old dexcool out if I went ahead and got the good old G-05 back in there.

What makes you think it's Dex Cool? Chrysler coolant is also orange.

It's orange color, which is not the yellow that I get out of a bottle of G-05. Sure enough your right. Is it possible its mopar coolant? Sure it is... damn now I'm even more confused.
