What type of engine coolant do you use. Says a special kind is required.

Asked by Jun 21, 2017 at 11:08 PM about the 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can I  use any radiator coolant with 50/ 50 coolant?  One that already has water added?

1 Answer


If your adding, you can't mix certain coolants. The factor fill was Mopar Antifreeze/ HOAT (Hybrid Organic Additive Technology). You can use Zerex G-05, which is compatible. The coolant is orange in color. You will have to mix that with distilled water to get your 50/50.
