    What kind of coolant do you guys use? The #s in my book don't match up to anything I'm trying to find.

    make sure you use OAT (organic acid technology) coolant. any other type of coolant will react with the OAT coolant and may form spooge in your cooling system that could cause flow issues.

    If your losing coolant, shouldn't this be a dealer issue.. After all, that's why we bought hellcat's, because they have Warranty..

    I forced my service manager to top of the coolant on the Intercooler and the rad after they replaced my rad. The we're telling me the levels were in a safe zone. They were right on the low level line. Yesterday I went to the dealership and bought some coolant because I didn't want get into it again about the coolant levels.

    Also distilled water is about $0.60 a gallon at places like WallyWorld. It's in the soda isle.
