HOAT coolant
 
Where the hell is everyone buying HOAT coolant for their WK? I need to top mine off a little and have been all over the region looking at AutoZone, PepBoys and Advance Auto. Going to check at NAPA tomorrow and if they don't have it I will have to bite my tongue and visit the stealership and pay out the arse.

I understand that zerex G-05 is the stuff I am looking for but it just doesn't seem to be on the shelves around Harrisburg, PA.

Yeah it seems like it is hard to find and I have no idea why. I always had to go to the dealer for a gallon jug for 30 bucks. :(

I asked for HOAT coolant at a couple places, even mentioned the zerex G 05 by name. You would have thought i was asking for a gallon of moonshine by the way the guys reacted. If I have to pay $30 for a gallon, I will do what has to be done. :(

Re: HOAT coolant
 
My WK is a 5.7L hemi and both the owners and service manuals are pretty specific about the need to use only HOAT coolant. Don't be fooled by the Preston stuff that tells you it is usable in any vehicle sold. It may not cause immediate damage in the hemi but it will at the very least negate the the 5yr/150k mile protection and change interval.

The Amsoil antifreeze is OAT & HOAT, it is a super long life. If you don't find any other alternatives, let me know, I can always ship to you. I have a warehouse in Lancaster, PA. Also I will get you the wholesale pricing, not what comes up on the website. Glad to help if I can.

Here are more details on it. www.amsoil.com/redirect.cgi?zo=1468345&page=storefront/ant
