It is dexcool equivalent.our manual lists the coolant as WSS-M97B44.if you look at any Dexcool container it claims it meets the WSS-M97B44 requirements.I will be replacing my thermostat this Friday with the 180 degree thermostat,on my 14 SE.my factory thermostat is actually leaking.I'm guessing the gasket is bad.I've got 50,000 miles on her.the color diffrence from what I've read is because the pink the Ford premixed coolant,and the yellow/gold is the ford concentrate that has to be mixed with distilled water.they're both "dexcool " though.
