    Thanks for the info. The Wrangler is in at the dealer for what appears to be casting sand in the coolant system. First thing I'll do is check the work order receipt when I pick it up to verify the correct part number was used for the coolant refill.

    Well, you would be less susceptible to the damage since will should flush your entire system to get rid of the sand, but you still want to know which one was used. Wouldn't be surprised if the dealer tries to save a few bucks on parts and used HOAT to refill your system. Since you bought yours with OAT, might as well demand it.

    WOW after reading all this I went right out and drew some coolant out of radiator. About 2 inches in clear glass, looks orange. My wife and her dad both said orange too. Jeep was built in Jan 2013 !!....

    Interesting...maybe you got a REALLY early 13 before they switched over.....If possible, can you post a pic? If it is indeed the orange HOAT, that's fine, just make sure that you only use that, and be extra careful now, since a dealer might see that you have a 13 and assume you have the purple stuff.

    Thats why I wanted to see a photo. If it looks like the orange in the glass above, it wasn't mixed. I also doubt they added anything when you had an oil related issue.

    I wonder; with how many of these "casting sand" cases I have heard of lately how many might possibly be this mixed coolant issue
