Hello, I was wondering what was the correct coolant type for my car. I usually use Prestone on older models. I was reading somewhere that Nissan calls for Zerex.
Do you
have the same problem?

So I would need to go to Nissan to get coolant or can I go to Walmart and get Zerex blue type?

I would not use Walmart brand at all.

Get the correct coolant from Nissan.
