    Damn...that sucks!

    But be thankful (and glad) that you are paying attention and caught it early before it blew and caused a bunch of problems.

    Sorry to read of this for you, but like Toolman_42 said, thank God you were paying attention and caught it before it blew! Here's wishing you a speedy and painless repair so your Cat can make it back home.

    I could have sworn your coolant as a matter of fact any Hell cat owner's coolant should be purple./? pinkish coolant is five year
    all of our cats should be on 10 year witch is purple i'm a parts guy at dodge currently at work now i would definitely like to know if
    anyone is running five year in there cat or if me being color blind is truly missing with my eye site here.

    Yup, that's where they fail - passenger lower corner. Been there and done that twice now - they did both my replacements "in about an hour". I told 'em to just order a pallet of radiators and they can replace 'em with every oil change. ;)

    It shouldn't be different at all both should be 10 year purple coolant witch is extremely weird unless someone out there is gonna relate the color change of the coolant is due to some off the wall explanation. This one has definitely got the wheels in my brain turning as to why your
    coolant is different
