it should meet the same standards as CAT EC-1 and it should be silicate and phosphate free otherwise all that bull**** will clog up your oil cooler, do you have a coolant filter? (probably a good idea). i would go with one of shells coolants or go to an international dealer to pick stuff up..

Coolant filter either dieselsite or sinister and is the coolant you put in green? If so i would flush whole system with distilled water and perhaps maybe chemical flush then fill up with a cat ec-1 coolant(usually red in color).

I'd do a chemical flush, make sure nothing is stuck in there.. and ayes a total flush, for a coolant filter kit i prefer sinister with a wix 24070 coolant filter.
