does it matter what kind of radiator fluid I use for my 02 tj?
"Universal" maybe????While we're on this subject, what's the name of the stuff that is safe to mix with any type coolant?
I mean, there are a lot of coolants that say safe for all engines, but what's that word I'm looking for that means EXACTLY that?
I don't think it's universal, but could be. That would be to easy to remember! I know I was talking with my mechanic about this after he worked on my kids car, which also uses Dex-Cool crap and he showed me a jug of coolant with the word on it that I can't think of for the life of me!!"Universal" maybe????
Take a look at the Peak site. 10ez Steps to Change Your Own Antifreeze plus all the various antifreezes they have on tap. Note, there's no HOAT per sae, mainly OAT.
They have a "lifetime" antifreeze as well.
Starting in 2001, HOAT became the OE antifreeze. It is made solely by Valvoline and marketed as Zerex G-05, Mopar 5yr/100,000 mile, Motorcraft Premium Gold, etc.
