My '13 2.0 sxt..
Is basicly draining coolant from the driver side in between the battery and the motor.. couldn't realy tell which hose it is.. I try to fix what I can myself...
I just don't know where to start for this issue.. I cant drive til its repaired..
Plus, is it bad to use cheap coolants? For a year at least ??
What coolant thats affordable, and less damaging???

Look closely at the plastic T on the upper hose. As far as coolant I just finished reading a bunch of coolant articles. I wouldn't throw just any coolant in there. Mopar uses an OAT (organic acid technology) coolant. Dexcool, prestone, and many others are also oat coolants but they contain an additive called 2-eha which Mopar coolant doesn't have. 2-eha doesn't play well with plastics...specifically silicone. I've read where FCA stopped using silicone in their gaskets but I have no for sure data to back that up. Peak global lifetime is another oat coolant that doesn't use 2-eha.
