Hi guys,
I have just changed the coolant in my D3 from the orange colour to the genuine Volvo green coolant.
I am a little concerned as I have heard a few stories of if you mix orange and green coolant it goes to jelly and clogs everything up.
I drained the coolant from the radiator drain and only got about 4 litres out. I refilled with de-inonised water and did three hot flushes (run to temp and drain) each time got lighter and lighter before refilling with genuine Volvo coolant.
Have I done enough flushes or will I encounter problems later down the line due to changing coolant colour?

If that was the case that would or reacted when it originally went from green to red?

I've never heard or such a reaction personally.
