Japanese engines are not designed to accept a high silicate formula
antifreeze. But, since there's a strong GM engineering influence at
Isuzu it's not a certainty that is the case with their engines.
But if you don't want to take a chance, that will rule out the
popular Prestone green formulation, for one, or any other with
high-silicate anticorrosive. The label should describe the chemistry.
I didn't take that chance so I switched to a long-life Dexcool "OAT"
formulation. I've had no problems and I fully expect 5 or more years
before needing to change coolant again.
