  1. 300 General Discussion (2nd Gen - 2011 to 2014)
    Gentlemen, My diagnostic tool shows: P0128 (coolant below threshold temp.) P0420 pending (catalyst below threshold) A search for code P0128 comes up with a fix: 1. Replace the thermostat 2. Replace the coolant Temp. sensor. Should I replace both? How urgent is this P0128 thing? On the...
  2. General LX Discussion (2nd Gen - 2011 to 2014)
    Hello Newbie here hoping to find an answer, I want to change the coolant on 2013 300 with 3.6L Pentastar engine for first time after 116.000 miles. All what my internet search did was to add more confusions related to flushing the system with the correct coolant type. HOAT, OAT, don't mix old...
  3. Charger Discussion (3rd Gen - 2015 +)
    It's time to knock out 1 more project & document a couple previous ones. I really didn't like the look of the Scat engine bay with that ugly coolant tank and the ABS plumbing nightmare. So, I found some covers foe both the coolant tank and ABS. The coolant tank is offered by JLT Performance...

    I have a fluidyne radiator, new 6.1 aluminum engine. How much coolant should I expect to use for initial fill?
  5. Charger Discussion (1st Gen - 2006 to 2010)
    I've got some kind of a leak. It doesn't smell like transmission fluid, coolant, or power steering fluid. I know it's not motor oil. The leak seems to be coming from the area of the passenger side top radiator hose, but I don't think its coolant because it seems too oily to be coolant...

    2010 6.1 SRT8 I've been chasing a leak for a while, it's a very small leak. I might need to top it off like every three or four months but still I would like to fix it. Today I went to my mechanic to fix a different problem and I asked him to check where the coolant leak is coming from. So...
  7. 300C, Magnum RT & Charger RT (5.7L V8)
    Hiya. 2005 Magnum RT. No problems for a long time. Been pretty cold weather hear below 30F for a few days at night and car sitting outside. Hadn't started it in a couple of days. I start it up and get about a mile out and I notice check engine light, a lighting bolt light in RPM gauge area...
  8. Challenger Discussion (2008 to 2014)
    We just had a Procharger installed and the Antifreeze tends to burp out coolant and so I need a cooling catch bottle and I need to place a small amount of coolant into the reservoir- The installer used Prestone HD 50/50 Prediluted Nitrite Free ELC AF5200 and we do not want to mix them- Any...
  9. General LX Discussion (1st Gen - 2005 to 2010)
    Not sure if they torqued the heads down right or even replaced the gaskets and bolts as they weren't on the invoice, but I have an oil cooler and it is possible that it failed after 100k, sometimes techs forget the last 90 degrees on the TTY bolts, hard to believe, but I have seen and heard...
  10. General LX Discussion (1st Gen - 2005 to 2010)
    Trying to change the coolant on my 06 Magnum RT. The air bleed screw to allow refilling is frozen. I probably should have checked it first, but I didn't. Now the new fluid won't run in. I applied Kroil, might be able to loosen it tomorrow. In the mean time I thought of loosening the upper hose...
  11. The SRT-8 (6.1L and 6.4L V8)
    So recently (ie in the last year) I'v replace the radiator, cooling fans, 180 thermostat and water pump due to a rising temp gauge but never overheated. With that being said the engine, when at idle, runs right about 195-200 degrees with the A/C is on at the hotest point of the day. Then when...
  12. General LX Discussion (3rd Gen - 2015+)
    I know this question had been asked before as I have read through a bunch of threads. However, I haven't seen any discussion regarding the BMW blue coolant in 2015+ cars. I know the older cars used HOAT and now they use OAT and I think the blue coolant is HOAT. Has anyone used the blue stuff...
  13. Magnum General Discussion (2005 - 2008)
    So, I buy this "nice condition" dodge magnum R/T off Craigslist right? Drive 3 hours and I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.. Undisclosed Oil leaks, Hail damage, Engine light, HEAVY smoker, and it blows coolant EVERYWHERE on the test drive. Long story short, I pay nothing and drive it...
  14. Newbie Check-In
    HEY! Here in Phoenix, AZ. Found a 2008 Magnum R/T for $1800. Severe smokers damage, hail damage, leaking oil, low coolant, bad tires. Been a Project. Coolant flush, oil change, Tranny cooler and flush, new sensor under the manifold (fixed oil leaks), and a detailing from the dealership...
  15. General LX Discussion (1st Gen - 2005 to 2010)
    Hello everyone, I found a coolant leak in my car, it looks like it's coming from the engine block, specifically where the oil pan bolts on to the engine block. Is this possible? I really hope this is not the end of the car. 2010 Charger SRT8, has about 175k miles on it.
  16. Magnum General Discussion (2005 - 2008)
    Was driving the other day and the car shot what looked like coolant out the hood along the passenger side. Before I got off the road safely, the car got to the max Hot on the coolant gauge. Turned it off about 5 seconds after it shot up. Ended up being the upper radiator hose came loose off...
  17. Engine / Intake / Exhaust / Performance
    I have done some searching and have come up fairly empty. I am looking for a coolant tank cover but don't really need billet as I will be painting and modifying the cover after purchase. Is billet tech the only company making one? I saw a bunch of results for JLT but going to their website it...
  18. Charger Discussion (1st Gen - 2006 to 2010)
    I noticed today after parking my 06 RT that the coolant was boiling after shutting off the engine. I also have intermittent hot air from the heater. The heat will usually blow hot when the car is above idle, but often will not while at idle, but occasionally will. I checked the expansion...
  19. Magnum General Discussion (2005 - 2008)
    Good morning All... My car sprung a coolant leak. I believe it is called a heater tube? It comes out of the back of the thermostat housing and runs under the right side of the intake manifold to the rear of the engine. The coolant is squirting out of the back of the thermostat housing where the...
