Question Answered: 

The bottom line is you have a coolant leak somewhere. The cooling system is a sealed system. Meaning that when it is hot it dumps any pressure over the system pressure limits into the reservoir. When it cools down the contraction of the cooling system sucks the coolant out of the coolant reservoir and you cooling system is working properly. If you have to add coolant to the reservoir then you have a leak. Coolant does not evaporate.

I agree with ProfessorG. Most Chrysler charging problems are related to a PCM problem. I said most not all. Have the problem checked out by a PROFESSIONAL TECH,not a parts store sales person. Unless you have a deep wallet and want to guess the problem.

I'm assuming you don't want to drive this vehicle anymore. Your oil leak is to severe to drive this car anymore until you find where the leak's are. After all it's only 17 years old. Understand that oil is a liquid. This means an oil leak on a vehicle that's 17 years old you need to start at the top and work your way down. Do the valve cover gaskets first and then thoroughly clean the under side of the engine. After the underside is clean I would put an oil dye in the crankcase to really see where to go to the next oil leak or leaks. Lots of auto techs say it's the oil pan gasket when they haven't even done a dye test. So tell me is the odometer read at least 150,000 miles.

Find another mechanic. Any oil leak is serious. Check your oil level every day.

You are looking to replace the wrong part. What is the problem, not your diagnosis.

You have a 13 year vehicle. I would start with a basic mechanical test. Check compression on all 4 cylinders. If compression is within 20% of each other then you have a mechanically sound engine. Then look closely at the spark plugs. Number 3 cylinder is the supposed problem cylinder. I would look at the plugs, wires and coil. There's a possibility an injector might have a problem also. Good luck

Don't second guess your technician. He has spent thousands of dollars on training and $100 of thousands on tools and equipment.
