Anti-freeze also alters the boiling point of the coolant. Straight water will boil at 212F, whereas anti-freeze will be much higher, particularly under 15 psig cooling system pressure.
More importantly for MOPAR blocks, the antifreeze has an anti-corrosion additive package to protect your engine. and radiator.

Re: coolant issue

Hey All,
The factory coolant is not the only one that is a HOAT formula. Zerex G-05 is made for Chrysler products and meets the HOAT spec. It says so right on the container.

The only place I have been able to find it is NAPA, approx $12 a gallon. Comes as a 50/50 mix or concentrated and you cut it yourself (thats a better deal as the price is about the same). I thought I read somewhere that the big Sears stores have it too but I haven't looked.
