Brava 100 16V coolant

I want to change coolant.
The reason is whether with genuine paraflu I will avoid rust.

The cooling circuit has had a lot of rust for a long time. Already the rust I think caused damage to the cabin heat radiator and recently also to the engine radiator and I replaced both.

Right now, and after a cleanse of the cooling circuit I did, I use a liquid from Valeo , the Valeo protective 50 , pink color , G12 i think.



So, what kind of coolant you use?
What about the rust in the circuit?
Is it possible to find the original coolant in the blue container?

What is the color of the coolant Fiat uses? As i can find it in green color



and this one in red



Both for ALFA ROMEO/LANCIA/FIAT/ABARTH

Re: Brava 100 16V coolant

From my experience with the Brava (1.2 16v Fire) it is the heater matrix that causes the problem with rust... it starts to leak so there is air in the system, this then causes the rusting in the engine to start. The sediment fills the bottom of the radiator and it takes a lot of flushing to clear it (with an additive to shift the deposits).

These engines were not originally designed for the latest pink antifreeze, I recommend a premium blue / green product, I use comma G48.

Re: Brava 100 16V coolant

Do you have rust with it?

Basically rust is not a problem, more from an aesthetic point of view it bothers me
