For Ford Transit it’s important to have optimal antifreeze inside. It’s important to provide cooling for Ford’s engine with 2.5 liters volume. You may use code of motor NSG and volume figure of 2.0 or just tell the 1998 year of production to buy liquid. For filling up the system you will use 11.6 liters of special Green coolant type. For 1997 Transit engine it’s necessary to get normal temperature balance.
If you choose other than Red coolant or use less than 10-13 liters, you can’t expect normal work. It’s obvious that every NSF motor needs good service as stated by Ford in instruction. Look at Ford’s requirements and make your 1995 Transit serve longer and with no problem. Use your 2.0 engine longer in 1997 Transit by keeping these rules.
