Type of coolant to use??

I seen in the owners manual to use a HOAT type coolant. is that a specific type i have to get from the dealership, for my 04? Or can i use a generic brand?

You can get the HOAT from the local auto supply but some people will tell you to get it from the dealer. Why? I do not know.

I've never seen it at the local auto store, since I just went thru this last month and had to get it from the dealer.

Get the Mopar Orange From the dealer if you find any HOAT type in a parts store it will likely be a different color Note Dexcool is NOT the same & not approved even though it's orange too
