  1. 2015 2.4L GT - how hot is too HOT?

    Dodge Dart General Discussion
    I have a 2015 GT, 2.4L. 55,000 miles. How hot is too hot? I've contacted the dealership regarding the temp, but they keep telling me that they "run hotter" than normal. What's normal then for the Dart? My gauge is showing up to 228° and it's unnerving, knowing the damage that can easily...
  2. Failing Thermostat?

    Dodge Dart Maintenance
    I'm the owner of a 2015 Dart SXT 2.4 L. It has 78k miles on it ( I travel into the city for work) and has not given me any issues until now. I've noticed that when I sit in heavy traffic (Texas summer heat) my temp gauge starts to move up but has never gone up to 3/4. The owner manual doesn't...

  4. Coolant Flush

    Dodge Dart Maintenance

I bought a Peak Flush Kit and it says to cut the Hose from the firewall to the top of the engine but that cant be the...
  5. 2015 GT 2.4L 6-speed Manual Coolant/Antifreeze

    Dodge Dart GT
    I've received mixed suggestions as to what I need. I know the owner's manual advises the Mopar OAT, which I believe is purple, but am looking for something I can pick up locally. Is the Mopar the only coolant I can use to top it off? Honestly, what's currently in it, appears yellowish/orange...

  8. Why is coolant here?

    Dodge Dart Mechanical Problems
    As you can kinda see, there is a little coolant in the "pockets" of whatever that metal thing is (Sorry I don't speak much car). It's down in between the coolant resevoir and the air filter hose. What has happened recently: -2 weeks ago I had my upper rad hose replaced because of a suspected...
  9. Coolant flush

    Dodge Dart 2.0L Tigershark
    So I want to do a coolant flush (because I need to add more but Idk what the previous owner put in) and was wondering if I could put any OAT coolant in. If so, what kind of OAT coolant types can I use? (other than the mopar MS-12106)
  10. Coolant temperature

    Dodge Dart General Discussion
    I have the 1.4l engine. Like it but the coolant temp only goes up to 77C. That means the cabin air is not real warm. Dealer says that is normal. Anybody have anything to say on that?
