color is irrelevant, its just a dye, it has no correlation to coolant chemistry.

I suggest doing a full flush with a Prestone flush kit, then use Zerex GO-5 coolant. lasts ~100,000 miles.

Regular Green Coolant is what came in Jeeps up to 2000 or so they went to Orange GO-5 coolant in 2001,I would just stick with the Regular Green coolant & change it every 3 years or 36,000 miles,Green is what I am running in My 97 TJ
