Hi,
Can I put antifreeze that says for pre 2000 vehicles in a 2006 vehicle? What's the damage if I do?
Thanks.

We need far more detail than that.

Year, make, model and engine size and a picture of the coolant container you want to use.

No, I wouldn't use that stuff. You need a coolant that is "Silicate free".

Why are you buying that pre-mix junk anyway. You are paying them for the water.

Just a comment on pre-mixed any formula. Handy - yes you don't need to measure 50/50. You still are buying water might matter I started using distilled water to mix with any type of antifreeze is dirt cheap by the gallon now suggest that if uncertain of your water 99% would be fine if safe to drink and know it,

Your vehicle takes Mopar 5 year 100,000 mile coolant. Your local dealer should have it on the shelf.
