(2007 Chrysler Pacifica)

Can radiator sealant be used in a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica? If so, would you have to put the sealant through the hose instead of the directly into the coolant container?

Be aware that sealants and stop leak additives could cause more future problems by clogging passages which are vital for normal operation. I know the manufacturers claims otherwise, but ask mechanics about it.
If there is a leak, get it repaired properly. Cheap fixes are turning to the most expensive repairs.

i agree. sealer will gum up the system and clogg critical passages.
beside, it is very temporary and that is even if it works.

the best fix is to fix it correctly.
