Volvo Penta VCS Yellow Coolant Concentrate, 5 Litres, Part Number 22567295
Volvo Penta Coolant VCS (yellow) contains new inhibitors that are adapted to the materials used in modern engines. VCS (yellow) offers improved protection against corrosion and the build-up of deposits. It helps counteracts cavitations and galvanic corrosion. The change interval is 4 years for VCS yellow coolant.
The Volvo Penta coolant VCS (Yellow) must not be mixed with Volvo Penta coolant (Green), nor be used in combination with a coolant filter.
Note: Never mix with VCS yellow coolant with Volvo green coolant. Your Volvo Penta was supplied with either Green or VCS yellow coolant. They must never be mixed nor swapped over. Earlier variants of any Volvo Penta diesel are likely to use the green type.
Later Volvo Penta diesels may habe been supplied with VCS yellow coolant, and they should be kept on this type. Remember, your coolant should be changed every four years on VCS and every 2 years on the green type, and you should remove the heat exchanger at least every 5 years, if fitted to clean it and replace the O rings.
The best way to replace it, is to use the ready mixed version, as incorrect dilution can lead to over heating issues.
The continued improvement of new Volvo Penta engines with higher performance, more compact sizes and lighter materials raises the requirements for cooling and corrosion protection. Volvo Penta Coolant VCS is yellow and must not be mixed with green coolant.
