Engine Coolant Recycling
Dec. 21, 1990
All Domestic & Import Vehicles
A number of systems are being marketed to "recycle" or "reconstitute" used ethylene glycol antifreeze/coolant in the dealership. Some of the systems
have been advertised as producing a recycled antifreeze "as good as" original and suggest the recycled product is suitable for use in Chrysler Corporation
Tests, so far, indicate most of these systems merely remove suspended solids from the used antifreeze/coolant through the use of various size filters.
These systems do not remove glycol degradation products, or dissolved solids, which can cause water pump seal wear.
These systems use a universal "reinhibitor package". The "reinhibitor package" can not restore every type antifreeze/coolant inhibitor system to a like
Tests results indicate these "recycled" products do not consistently provide the protection required in Chrysler Corporation engines and cooling systems.
The use of these "reconstituted" antifreeze/coolants is not authorized in the performance of any repair covered under the provisions of the warranty.
