    Default Who still carries Mopar/G-05 Coolant?

    Dealer, I know. Pep Boys used to carry the Zerex stuff, but I don't know if they still do. Anyone else?

    Walmart has store brand G05. A while back their bottles said G05, but the Chrysler spec number was for the older antifreeze. I looked at the bottles recently and they changed the spec number that matches G05

    Perfect. Apparently they hide it in the back and you have to know a secret password or something.

    Don't be fooled - any water based product, like water based paint, will mix with any antifreeze. Why take a chance just because the bottle says WILL MIX WITH ALL ANTIFREEZE?

    Walmart carries it in Canada. I bought a jug (gold in colour) years ago G-05. Any auto parts chain worth anything will have it as they'd have AFT+4. If they don't you're shopping in the wrong place for your auto products. They've been spec'd for various vehciles for at least a decade now. This is nothing new but don't use that other crap mixing with it. HOAT=G05 use it and drive with confidence.

    Well done and sound like the brand I got at Walmart years ago. Everyone carries it just like 5w20 oil now. Its been a standard grade for so many newer engines for years as the 5w & 10w30 used to be. 3157 bulbs replaced the 1157 of earlier vehicles and everyone carries them.

    The only trick or requirement is... open eyes to read.
