Default HOAT confusion!

I just read another thread where I was reminded that my Chrysler dealer is usually pretty good with my PT--on things I'd rather not do--air-conditioning problems, for the most part.

But I remember when I went down to have some extra Mopar HOAT on hand, and I asked for it--using the term HOAT. The parts guy looked confused. He said he'd never heard of HOAT. I told him I had bought HOAT from his department a few years before and he still acted confused.

I ended up buying a black container of Mopar pre-mixed 50/50 five-year coolant from him, and when I got home I noticed that nowhere on the lable did it mention the term "HOAT".

Now isn't that odd?

Tim

I found this on the web......
Universal Coolant: The Ultimate Antifreeze?

Apparently OAT coolant is eaisier on some gaskets and HOAT is the same but is better for aluminum as well. They both are considered "long life".

This is the coolant that the dealership put in mine. It doesn't say HOAT anywhere on the container but apparently it is the right stuff.

And from what I understand, it has a small amount of sodium silicate (water glass / liquid glass) in it to help with leaking head gasket?

Check the link I posted above. The silicate is in there to protect the aluminum. Maybe it can do something about minor leaks in head gaskets, too???

Petey, the pic you sent is the same container I bought. I wonder why there is no HOAT mentioned?
