    Any good extended life universal coolant should be fine.
    I've used Prestone pre-mixed extended life coolant in both of mine. Just don't mix brands of coolant.

      I think the first gen uses a big o-ring and a gasket for the water pump. Metal plate? Are you taking about the timing cover (whole front of the engine)?

        That "plate" does not come off. The rubber seals do. Four are showing in your other picture on the other thread.
