Engine Coolant?

I have an 03 TJ (4L 6 cylinder) and I am running low on engine coolant. On the lid it says to check the owners manual but i looked through it and maybe i missed it or something but I couldnt find it anywhere, so i stop in at an auto parts store to see if they could tell me and they said that I had to get it from the dealer...is this true?? it is like a pinkish red colored coolant.. any suggestions on what kind i should get instead of going to the dealer? and what would i need to do to fluch it??

Color doesn't matter when it comes to coolant, totally ignore it. Your Jeep requires using HOAT antifreeze. That stands for Hybrid Organic Acid Technology.

You don't need to get the coolant from the dealer, but that would be a good place to get it. You can get HOAT from any Chrysler dealership, or a John Deere, Mercedes or Ford dealer. You can also get it at NAPA - buy Zerex GO5 (made by Valvoline).
