Zerex G-05 Coolant

I picked some of this up today and noticed that it isn't pink but clear in color. Does this matter? I noticed my OEM fluid is pink so I wanted to check.

Re: Zerex G-05 Coolant

Mine is clear...not sure why. It says it's HOAT though for Chrysler.

Re: Zerex G-05 Coolant

Your Jeep comes with HOAT coolant. If you add coolant whether it is pink or blue or whatever just make sure it is HOAT. No ethylene glycol, and no Dex-cool (OAT?).

Re: Zerex G-05 Coolant

Well one of the ingredients in the HOAT is ethylene glycol.

Re: Zerex G-05 Coolant

Yes, sorry. You just want to make sure that the coolant that you put in there has that corrosion protection chemicals (hybrid organic acid technology type coolant) and whatever other crazy crap in there that is not found in conventional engine coolant.
