GY = Factory-filled with green-colored engine coolant. Service as normal with green-colored engine coolant, or service with yellow-colored engine coolant with the

following important conditions:

service maintenance (change-out) intervals of the yellow-colored engine coolant can be followed.
II. If the green-colored engine coolant is not completely flushed out of the cooling system (e.g., yellow-colored engine coolant is used to top off the system),

then the service maintenance (change-out) intervals of the green-colored engine coolant must be followed.
III. All pre-1999 vehicles, as well as all model years of Mercury Villager, must be serviced with the green-colored engine coolant.

O = Orange-colored engine coolant meeting Ford specification WSS-M97B44-D2 or WSS-M97B44-D (Motorcraft(R) Orange Antifreeze/Coolant Prediluted)
