My 14 dart take Mopar coolant part number 68163848ab
Is there an alternative to this coolant at a parts house? It's a pinkish orangish coolant. I had to replace a bad factory hose clamp that was leaking and it'll need topped back off.
Thanks everyone.

The stuff you want will be purple. There’s no exact alternative to the Mopar stuff. It’s close to Dexcool, but not exact.

The Recochem OEM website come back with their Orange which is the same one as for GM, (Dexcool).


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

If it's too much to just use distilled water, my suggestion bite the bullet buy/use Mopar Purple OAT OEM AF.

Read link, pic originally from Wrangler forum. Factory Mopar OAT, red-ish. Service part from dealer, purple tint. Same AF, different tint.
