Do I have to buy a Mopar Coolant tank or can I use a universal one?

Asked by Aug 17, 2014 at 03:49 PM about the 2002 Dodge Stratus SE Plus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a leak in my coolant tank right where the overflow hose meets with the tank. I have
been looking at different tanks but the only one that looks like the old one is out of my
price range. Most places seem to have universal tanks but they look nothing like my old
one. Will they still work?

You could call your local junk yard and see if they have one that fits your car.

If you can't find a good one at the junkyard, you sure can. Just make sure to mount it in as close to the same spot as the original one as possible. Not too high or too low in the engine compartment. Coolant must be able to flow in and out of the new tank through the hose that connects it to the radiator. HTH. -Jim
