Just reviewed my build sheet and there is mention of 3.2 extra gallons of Diesel but no reference to fluids placed in vehicle at factory.
So how would we know what COOLANT was placed in the vehicle.
Mine is PINKish not PURPLE.
Been in touch with a Coolant Testing Laboratory. One of the testers there is a mechanic by trade and discussing the tests to be done on my samples and explained Jeep Australia's explaination of the elusive PILL for a Coolant Pressure Leak Down Test and he said he'd never heard of that either.
Anyone give any advice on how we can investigate this further?
We have 3 vehicles in Aus who have all presented at the same dealer for
Sludge in Coolant Bottle issues.
So I am having the PINK Coolant and PURPLE Coolant samples tested for comparison and they can check it against data sheets. They can also make a determination as to HOAT or OAT based on the chemical chromatography analysis with this info at hand.
I have a sample of the sludge and it will also be looked at to try and determine what it is.
ORANGE PINK or PURPLE be alert because mixing of HOAT and OAT's will cause problems with cooling system and engine life.
