Type of fluids (at & coolant)
 
I have a 2002 international Amtran re with a 7.3l engine and 545 transmission.

I am trying to figure out what coolant type and at fluid my bus takes.

Thanks

For coolant you will want anything that says "Cat EC-1", check the dip stick for the trans fluid likely printed on there.

Edit: Unless what is in there is green stuff like normal Prestone, then you need to find out the last time your coolant filter was changed and if it was pre charged. If no clue you need to test it for the correct levels etc

you are year 99.5+, you can use ELC coolant in your T-444E, the green stuff with SCA charge will work too, im using an AMSoil coolant in mine.. no more SCA to worry about..

Iím not sure what was in it before, the expansion tank drained out when I relocated a heater, any issues if the stuff I got mixes with other coolant?
