In calendar year 2009, Nissan began filling some vehicles at the factory with a NEW Nissan Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant (LLC) that is blue in color.

NOTE: LLC = Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant

The transition to this new Blue LLC continued though MY 2010. Beginning with MY 2011, all Nissan vehicles are filled at the factory with the Blue LLC.

^ MY 2009 and 2010: Some vehicles are filled at the factory with Blue LLC.

^ MY 2011: All vehicles are filled at the factory with Blue LLC.

Blue LLC is designed to have a service life of 7 years/105,000 miles for the factory fill, and 5 years/75,000 miles for subsequent replacement fills.

Nissan Blue Super LLC is available through the Nissan Direct Ship Chemical Care Product Program, Website order link via dealer portal or order direct


^ Blue LLC one gallon pre-diluted: P/N 999MP - LP25500P

> The one gallon containers are pre-diluted with 50% antifreeze and 50% distilled water.

> Do not add additional water when using pre-diluted Blue LLC.


^ Blue LLC one quart concentrate: P/N 999MP - L255QTP

> The one quart concentrate containers are intended for extreme cold weather application.

> Use the concentrate without mixing (do not add water).

Additional Information for using Blue LLC

Blue LLC and Green-colored Nissan LLC (P/N 999MP-AF000P) are compatible with each other:

^ Blue can be mixed/added with Green

^ Green can be mixed/added with Blue

^ Adding Green LLC to Blue LLC will reduce/shorten the life expectancy of the Blue LLC to that of the Green LLC (4 years / 60,000 miles).

^ LLC must always be used with demineralized or distilled water, otherwise the life expectancy of the LLC (Blue or Green) will be degraded and cooling system damage may occur.
