Sorry for the long delay, been very busy lately. It is absolutely green coolant, not condensation. The truck has been sitting for 3 weeks now and is still slowly leaking coolant. All of the connections seem ok to me.

On that oil, the specs are out of date. Notice the old Mercedes and BMW spec numbers. Best use M1 0w-40 or Castrol 0w-40 for cheaper than that.

Use any synthetic 5W20 oil that meets the Chrysler MS6395 specifications and you'll keep the Chrysler warranty people happy too.
