    Hybrid OAT coolants, also known as HOAT antifreeze or G-05 antifreeze. This formulation also uses organic acids, but not 2-EHA (different organic acids are used). Hybrid OAT coolants add a small dose of silicates to provide quick-acting protection for aluminum surfaces. Hybrid OAT coolants are currently used by many European vehicle manufacturers as well as Ford and Chrysler.
    As HOAT antifreeze ages, however, some of the silicates may drop out of solution. These particles can have an abrasive effect as they circulate in the cooling system, accelerating wear on water pump seals and plastic impellers, plastic radiator end tanks, or inside metal heater cores with sharply curved tubes. To avoid these kinds of problems, most HOAT-based antifreezes use stabilizers to keep the silicates in solution, and they contain only a small amount of silicates. HOAT-based antifreezes that claim to be "low silicate" formulas should meet the ASTM D6210 standard (which is a requirement for most late model diesel engines).
    Like-OAT-based antifreezes, HOAT-based antifreezes also have a claimed service life of 5 years or 100,000 to 150,000 miles -- which ever comes first.

I need to know what type of special coolant my car takes it is a 99 chrysler lhs, it says it takes special coolant but does not say what kind,it says look in the owners manual and I dont have one.. PLEASE...


Owners Manuals for everything are very cheap and plentiful on eBay. There is only the green and the orange stuff out there and your warranty is long gone, not so much to worry about. The turn of the century brought about the orange and so many problems associated with it that once the warranty is over, most folks use good old green. You can call a dealer and ask for service please, when you hear a voice ask that guy what color coolant you should be using in a 99 LHS.

Coolant Problem?


The coolant used in your van is any that has the following words on bottle:
LONG/EXTENDED LIFE COOLANT, almost all coolants out there are in this class of coolants now, use a name brand like Preston, use the premixed type (50/50), easier.. Good luck and make sure your tire pressure are at the correct inflation, be safe friend.

Problem is i recently bought a 97 saturn and there was no owners manual. i checked the car for fluids yesterday and it needs coolant on the cap it says special coolant see owners manual. i just need to...


hello there

there are two types of coolant that were used in your car: your coolant bottle or cap may have a orange or green dot on it.

Orange dot = DEXCOOL
Green dot= Eythelene gycol (green stuff)

All the 97' and UP had dexcool. 96' was the transistion year, some one way some the other.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Thanks
