I just had my radiator flushed. I noticed that the fluid they put in is "blue" and not the "pink" one that was in it before. Is it okay to use the blue antifreeze or should I take it back and have them reflush and use the type the manufactuer suggests?

Hello

According to the manual the only coolant you are supposed to use is the G 012 A8 D meeting specification TL VW 774D.

The blue is for Audi models 1997 and prior. The red or pink is for 1997 on.

I have attached the information from the manual.

NOTE: " Only use coolant additive G 012 A8 D - meeting specification TL VW 774 D. Identifiable by red color

I have also attached a web site for your review.

Me, I would have it back to the blue unless they can show you otherwise in documentation and warranty any engine damage. .up to you

Hope this helps.
