I have a Question on this Coolant!

Dealer is asking $68 a gallon!

Do any of you coolant experts know who makes this coolant for Mopar?

Why not just flush it out and use the regular green prestone long life version instead? That's what I do to all my cars, except for the one where I am still using Dexcool (which is cheap and easy to buy).

My newest Mopars still used G-05, so I'm not really up on the new stuff and possible alternatives. Is this the sorta purple tinted factory fill, P/N68163848aa?

If so, there are ways to get it for about half what you were quoted. I'd go genuine from a place like this:

OMG $68
There has got to be an alternative source. Other Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealerships, the web.

So thats the new dealer parts profit machine scam, tell everybody to use the "factory approved" coolant ONLY, or the solder/aluminum/iron will be dissolved. That link is still almost $50 with shipping.

For $68 or even $50 shipped for the Mopar coolant the Peak Global looks pretty good.

440magnum: Yes the part# for this coolant is 68163849AA!-->50/50 mix!

I found it on line a a few Mopar sites. Cheapest is $24.90 a gallon for 50/50 mix.

The concentrate is around $36.50. By the time I pay shipping to Oklahoma cost is around $40 a gallon.

Color is purple!

I did read where this variation of a OAT coolant does not contain the 2-EHA like most Dex-Cool coolants do.

It is very similar to Peak Global Lifetime. Which makes me think I can mix the 2 without issues.

My truck only has 600 miles on her...so I hate to drain the new coolant to a brand that I can buy locally for 1/4 of the price.

Doing alot of reading leaves me to think that the Peak Global Lifetime might be my best choice.

I just like having a Gallon of the Correct OAT coolant in my garage at all times for top off.

I just wish I could find the maker of Mopar Brand. That would help alot with the narrowing down the most compatible OAT coolant for use.

This purple OAT coolant shows to be 10years 150,000 mile coolant.

I know I don't have to worry about this new coolant for along time.

I just would like to have a extra gallon in the garage for top off.

I know the best way to handle this without spending $45-$50 for a gallon of the correct OAT Coolant. Is to drain the new coolant out of the 5.7L and Flush and Fill with Peak Global Lifetime. Done no more Worries!

I would really not like to do that at this time. It's New Coolant->Nothing Wrong with it! It would only be a waste of $$$

I have looked through out the net trying to find out just who makes this expensive Mopar Coolant with no luck so far.

Thus I could just buy their brand of OAT coolant which I'm sure would be compatible with the coolant in the Hemi. Which I hope it would.

Doing more research showed me Mopar just changed to this OAT coolant in the 2013 models.

I did contact Zerex and they replied that they were not the supplier of the coolant for Mopar.

This article says that the Chrysler OAT is manufactured by CCI Manufacturing. Never heard of 'em, personally.

It also said (I'm summarizing) that Chrysler went out of their way to make sure the new systems tolerate other coolant chemistries, although they were very demanding (and different from Fiat) in the spec for the purple OAT so that it can last 10 years/150k miles. But they avoided any silicone in gaskets so that 2 EHA shouldn't (I still wouldn't use it!) cause problems like it did when DexCool first appeared. They also did a lot of cavitation tests, which is another problem with nitrite-free antifreezes.

Well Horse Poop! This just confuses me more! Sounds like I best just purchase a gallon online which is cheaper then the dealer. To keep from causing any issues as well as my warranty.

But still I am open to any thoughts and advice from you all.

Thanks 440Magnum for your time and help.

Problem here is Mopar OAT is a very new AF and thus the stealer is the only option if you want to get it now, and the price will be high. Frankly I wouldn't purchase it until I specifically needed it. If the level drifts a tad low(er) I'd just add some distilled water to bring the level up. I'd expect that as it becomes a little more popular the price should drop some.

If you wanted to have something on hand just as a topper and not pay stealer prices, I agree the PGL would make an excellent choice. It's a universal extended/long life OAT with no 2eha (like Mopar OAT), which would make it an ideal alternative to the oem. And it has a rather neutral color so it's doubtful it would change the hue of the oem much if at all for minor top offs.

If it's for your 14 truck then any top off should be covered for free by the dealer. Besides, how many top offs are you expecting on thi sbrand new vehicle? At most one should be needed which would make the trip to the dealer worthwhile, unless it's really far away.

I COMPLETELY agree. Use distilled water as top-off. If its losing enough coolant to be an issue with using distilled water... then its a WARRANTY issue because it shouldn't lose that much coolant in 5-10 years! The risk of mixing chemistries is far, far greater than a little bit of dilution with distilled water, especially after the inhibitors are all working in an engine with a few thousand miles on it.

Sayjac: I agree 100%

Thanks for your thoughts and advice.

It looks like Mopar put some thought and have good intentions with this new OAT coolant.

Truth is--> 10years-150,000 miles is pretty incredible.
