Coolant?
 
My coolant is a bit low, its not leaking its just a tad lower then it should be. The other day i was in advanced auto getting detailing supplies and asked if they had coolant that would work.... he looked it up and couldnt find any info but another worker pointed to a bottle and said "this should work" I didnt pick any up but I am wondering if an auto parts store has it or if i need to go to the dealer?

Went through the exact same story. I left and went to the dealer's parts department.

I bought the gallon jug of MOPAR HOAT at $18. It's full strength, so it actually makes 2 gallons. I know that it is 100% compatible with what is in there (I like that peace of mind). BTW: That stuff probably lists at $24 per gallon, but parts dept dropped the price because they weren't selling any. See if you can talk them down.

Now I have 1.8 gallons worth of HOAT left. Another jug of specialty fluid on the garage shelf. :rolleyes:

I can only get it from the dealer here in Australia, Mopar are the only one that make HOAT from what I was told cost me AU$95 for 5 litres!!! Any other brand coolant doesn't comply with the manufacturers specs.

I just performed a flush, clean and new coolant, new stuff is suppose to last 5 years or 150,000 kilometres

How much?!? Bloody hell. I got 5 litres from the dealer for 11.

You would be perfectly fine topping off with the pre-mixed universal coolant in a Hoat system. Hoat is easy because it is a hybrid, both organic like dexcool and inorganic like conventional ethyl. :thumbsup:
No worries like you'd have mixing dex and ethyl....:eek:

How hard is it to flush the system? If im going through the trouble to go to the dealer I might as well just get enough to flush and fill the system with fresh stuff.

Is it bad that I added 50/50 Prestone to my overflow? It was down since I forgot to add some back after my 180 tstat install...Just noticed and my dealer was closed so I added a lil Prestone for now...
