For the radiator use only fluid that has the designation HOAT or if you can find antifreeze that says it's compatible to the recommended HOAT from Chrysler. Other types of fluid will rust out the insides of the radiator.

For the Tranny, use only oil designated as ATF+4. Anything else could void any warranty you might have plus the transaxle might not work properly without that type of fluid.

Don't be fooled by the antifreeze that will work in all cars, get HOAT but it's hard to find. Besides the Chrysler brand at the dealers you can get Zerex Hoat from a few places like Napa
