2006 Ford F 150 v6 automatic

my sister came over today and her coolant was low in her 06 F 150. It looked brown in color . My 94 ranger uses regular coolant. I wanted to know if hers just needs to be flushed. or if it uses dex cool? I dont wanna touch it for her unless I know, because i know the 2 products are not compatable. I know newer vehicles normally have a sticker that tells you . it was ugly to her, so she pulled it off. Thanks Annie

If you check the owners manual, it will give a Ford spec for the coolant.
I think it will be a WSS -XXXXX spec.
I know Peak or Zerex offers a coolant that meets the newer Ford spec. I just can't remember for certain (I believe it is Zerex)
I know when I have changed mine, I did NOT use the Prestone or various other 'universal' products.

Here is some info....

ETA: Found this and it is what I have used with no problems (228,000 miles on '05 4.2)
