Always use green if it has anything else in it drain it and refill with green
all other colors where originally designed to be better than the green but in actually they are worse
they break down sooner, leave deposits and gum up water passages
ask any mechanic that had a motor apart that runs that coolant and he/she will tell you the same

    Not exactly true; needs clarification.-

    The thing is that ONE type of "improved" type of coolant that failed miserably (and it was extensely documented), was the terrible DEXCOOL, maybe more appropriately called "DEATHCOOL"...

  • Alfredo Feb 16, 2015

    DEXCOOL failed causing damage to many hundreds of vehicles in USA. But not all of the long duration coolants are that bad, and better ones protect the engine components better than old green formulations. Anyhow, Irecommend to cut the alleged 5-year duration to only 3 years with a through flushing and using demineralized water to get the proper 70% concentration maximum. I've used MOPAR 5-year orange-red colored coolant with excellent results. Amclaussen

Type of coolant for 05 stratus sxt

Any standard antifreeze coolant will work. If you live in the lower Midwest USA as I do, you can actually mix regular antifreeze 50/50 with water and you run no risk of it freezing. Detailed mixing instructions should be available on most antifreeze containers.
Best of luck.
