I have a 2000 T/A w/ automatic tranny and about 20,000 miles on it.
When I was checking the fluid levels the other day I happened to notice
that the coolant dipstick was covered with a tan colored slime. The
level was fine, but what the heck is causing this? Is my radiator or
engine block corroding? The oil looks fine and I've been using Mobil 1
10w-30, changed every 3000 mi. since I bought it new, but the coolant
hasn't been changed yet. I thought this stuff was supoosed to be good
for 5 years. I'm going to get a coolant change and flush asap, but has
any damage been done to my car? Is this so-called long-life coolant not
as good as advertised? Is there something else wrong with my beloved
Trans/Am? I thought It would at least be good for 3 years. WTF? TIA
for your input.
