Citroen C3 - Which coolant?

Post by kubby »

Hi All,

I am planning to perform a coolant flush on my C3.

I am struggling to figure out the right coolant.

It's a C3 (A51) 5 DOOR SALOON 1.6 VTi 16v 120 - 2011 model.

I currently show green/blue coolant in the coolant reservoir.

Can someone please point me in the right direction? Will any Glysantin G30 coolant be fine for my car?

Thanks in advance.

The original PSA coolant which is mixed with distilled water to the appropriate concentrate, part numbers and quantities:

9735K4 -1L
9735K1 - 2L
9735K0 -5L
9735j9 - 20l
9735j8 - 210l

Although the coolant in your system (if original) states it doesn't need changing as it is long life with rust inhibitors, many do change this. As part of Citroen servicing, they will check the levels and the readings periodically to make sure it is ok.
