Would recommend contacting your local Chrysler dealer just to be on the safe side. I am pretty sure Dex-cool will work, but i would call for verification.

I have a 98 chevy tahoe (5.7l) i have changed plugs, wires, cap, rottor, oil, and mass air flow sensor. but the computer reads every thing is working. except misfires in cilnder 5&7. HELP!!!!!!!!!!...


do a compression check on those 2 cylinders to rule out head gasket, check the new plugs you installed to see if they got fouled out, it is possible some anti-freeze may be leaking into those cylinders from the intake gasket.
1998 uses dex cool anti-freeze and it is known to eat away and corrode the gaskets.
the only good way to use dex cool is to mix precisely 50/50 and use distilled water.
switching to the green can cause water pump damage since they are designed for the lubricant in the dex cool.i mention the anti-freeze because a lot of people will change the gaskets and run the green only to have a failing water pump not long after, if you decide to switch make sure you replace the pump.

Can I replace my dex coolant with regular antifreeze? in my 1997 chevy malibu and how


they say you cant mix different coolants but you can go to auto-zone etc, and buy a cheaper anti-freeze for general motors products. its a 50/50 mix for all gm cars and trucks.you can add this coolant to any brand of anti-freeze. its called universal type anti-freeze. to run a differant anti-freeze in it, you have to flush out complete engine and radiator because the dex-cool and the green stuff do not mix well and cause engine corrosion etc. dex-cool is reccomended for all chevy engines. good-day !

I need to know if I have to use dex-cool antifreeze in my car? Or can I use a universal product?


you can use an all make all models anti freeze, it will mix with the dex-cool but i suggest that you flush the dex-cool out of the system then refill with an all make all model anti freeze.

What is correct anti freeze for 2001 Aurora V6


the red/orange Dex Cool is the correct antifreeze

however, many manufactures no use a universal fluid that is clear

this fluid meets and/or exceeds all manufactures recommendations so you will be fine

let me know if I can be of any further assistance!

What Anti Freeze can I purchase for a 1998 Nissan Sentra Gxe?


Depends on which anti-freeze is already in the car.
If it is green, use the prestone 50/50 mix.
If it is an orange color, use the prestone dex cool 50/50 mix.

Yep, 50-50. Only foreign cars need special anti-freeze.

Mysterious 'bottle' in engine of Peugeot 205 (1990)


If there is a small black hose going from that to the radiator, that's for the anti-freeze coolant. That is a special anti-freeze called prestone dex-cool. It's not green like the regular stuff. Now, if the hose is running up toward the windshield, that's windshield washer fluid. Prestone de-ice, that's also colored, and not blue. Just got to make sure which is which.
