Just be aware, that you can't just "top off" your cooling system with any generic or universal coolant. The Ford Orange coolant is pretty new stuff and you are probably not going to find it at WalMart or Autozone. Don't add something that you don't know to be specifically compatible with it. Best bet would be safe and just add distilled water or Ionized water. Ford fills the coolant systems with Ionized water at the factory.
When you do your Check Coolant test. Remember there are two coolants systems, So you need to check each system. This coolant requires two test.. The typical test strip that checks for Nitrite and freeze point and an ALL NEW test that checks for corrosion inhibitors. Where you put a small amount of the coolant ( I think it was 5ml) into one of two vials ( depending on the coolant color) then insert another test strip.
So if you tech comes out and shows you a test strip to prove your coolant is good, Ask him where the other 3 test strips. ( should be a total of 4 test strips, two for each coolant system)
