That’s probably the “Owners Guide” then. You should have a full Owners Manual, if not, ask your dealer for one. You can also find it online as a .pdf.Thank you. My Owner's Manual does not contain the section you cited.
Alfa Crisis, kenalfa17:That’s probably the “Owners Guide” then. You should have a full Owners Manual, if not, ask your dealer for one. You can also find it online as a .pdf.
Our MY18 Ti came with a User Manual, and a Quick Reference Guide.It seems that Alfa may have moved to the Fiat model. My 2013 Abarth came with the quick start guide and a DVD that REQUIRED the use of Adobe to read it. Since I don’t use Adobe, it was useless to me, but there was a phone number to call for paper manuals. It worked just fine. My 2017 had full, paper manuals...it seems the 2018’s do not.
For those who hate Adobe and its security issues, consider Foxit for .pdf viewing.
AlfaCrisis, What I have found, is that the Chrysler antifreeze spec MS-90032 has changed to MS-12106. The Fiat Spec 9.55523 can be found on the All Fluids Spec Sheet supplied by MacGeek here (post #5):Fiat spec 9.55523? Where are you finding that? The correct spec is MS.90032, which the Ravenol above does not meet. That Fiat spec is for Petronus Paraflu 11, which is an incompatible coolant. As best I can tell, the Paraflu 11 is a conventional antifreeze (ethylene glycol) for older cars only, not an HOAT or OAT fluid. Fiat spec 9.55523 matches MS.7170.
See the low coolant thread:
Andy, here's the problem. These two sheets both say meet Fiat Spec 9.55523...one is Paraflu UP and one is Paraflu 11, two completely incompatible products:AlfaCrisis, What I have found, is that the Chrysler antifreeze spec MS-90032 has changed to MS-12106.

All indications are that the factory fill on our Giulias is Petronas Paraflu UP, Fiat spec. 9.55523 and Chrysler spec. MS-12106. This is an OAT (organic additive technology) antifreeze. There is confusion with names and part numbers, in part because of the availability of pre-mix (50-50) and concentrate products, and the colors of the products. For example, the MOPAR OAT antifreeze that many Alfa Dealers have in stock, and are using on our Giulias, is purple. I have found antifreeze with both the correct Fiat and Chrysler MS #s in purple, green, yellow and orange. I am waiting on a couple email replies to complete an article on availability and costs.
These days it is VERY IMPORTANT to use the correct antifreeze in your vehicles. Below is an interesting article that explains why.
