03 Mach 1, the manual says use motorcraft premium gold (yellow color)

Any issues if I top off using the antifreeze for all vehicles regardless of color?

Thanks,

Believe that antifreeze specifically listed due to aluminum components in the cooling system (radiator?). In any event, if you are only topping up you can usually use distilled water safely. Otherwise, use the antifreeze recommended...noting you may find another non-Motorcraft product that is compatible by using/crossing the Motorcraft part number in your manual---take that number into your local auto parts, they probably have something.
