just found out that my coolant reservoir was empty when I was doing my first oil change. Got a 2004 r6 here, what type of coolant should i put in there? is it ok to use car coolant? what color is it supposed to be? green or orange?

unless you flush the entire system, don't use engine ice or water wetter.... its just a waste. Its a waste anyway unless you go on the track. Just go to autozone and pick up a premix 50/50 that safe for aluminum (you have to look real hard nowadays to find something thats NOT safe for aluminum). Yes you pay more for the 50/50 but you don't have to worry about buying distilled water and mixing it together.
