I have a question about anti-freeze.

I've always used Prestone in my cars, but now I have a '96 Ford Ranger that I 
need to 
change the anti-freeze.  Problem is that it uses the "five-year" stuff, and I 
know it's 
different that "regular" anti-freeze.  What is the new kind to use.  Or do I 
just drain it 
out and replace it with Prestone/generic anti-freeze?  Does it matter?

I remember reading an article about the differences in the new type of 
anti-freeze, and 
why you should use one type or another, but it didn't mention brand names, or 
clues about how to tell them apart or which types to use and when...

I so confused...

Anyone know the whole story?
