:ditto: I agree on just using the premix, much easier. Also, if you add water make sure you use distilled or something like that. Regular old tap water isn't good for the coolant system, could cause funny deposits from the minerals in the water.
I noticed just the other day that my reservoir was down about 1/2 way. I bought antifreeze from my local dodge dealership and mixed 50/50 with distilled water. Is there anything special about the mopar coolant or can any red coolant be used?
I am hoping that there was just an air pocket somewhere in the system and I don't have a leak developing somewhere but I am just going to keep and eye on it.
I was told by a Dodge mechanic to just add distilled water, since there is always some evaporative water loss, but the original coolant fill (the antifreeze, itself) is still in the system.
He told me to add water, only, unless there had been a rupture (catastrophic loss) in the system, until it's time to service the cooling system, do a flush, and refill with fresh coolant; just top-off with distilled water, until you do your next radiator/coolant service.
