My thermostat housing blew over the weekend, I pulled over to a gas station and my coolant tank was empty. I poured in some Peak coolant/antifreeze and limped it home. Mechanic said water pump is leaking now (probably from it overheating after the housing bursted). I’m tying to figure out what caused this...did I use the wrong coolant?
Previous to this, I was topping off with Prestone every once in a while. I figured some fluid probably leaked out while wheeling.
So now in my tank I have a mix of Mopar, Prestone and Peak. Any idea if these mix?
How hot did it get? Did gauge go to red? Any lights illuminate on dash?
