I am going to drain and flush the cooling system on my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan. Should I use Dex-Cool or the green stuff?

Here is what the factory requires.............


Engine Coolant
Mopar Antifreeze/Coolant 5 Year/100,000 Mile Formula HOAT (Hybrid Organic Additive Technology) or the equivalent.


Definitely not green but Dexcool may be acceptable.

Don't use Dex-cool. Dex-cool is OAT and Mopar is HOAT. You can also use Zerex G-05 if you can find it.


Can get it at your local dealership:
