What you will need

Procedure

  1. Locate the hood release underneath the dashboard in your Chrysler Crossfire. Pull the lever until you hear the Chrysler hood pop open. Next, you need to release the hood safety latch at the front of the hood.

  2. Next, locate the coolant reservoir (tank) on your Chrysler. On a Crossfire, the coolant reservoir is located on the passenger side.How to check coolant or add 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Crossfire
  3. Look at the coolant reservoir tank and take note of the low and high levels. If the level is below the minimum mark, you will need to add coolant, or your Crossfire may overheat.
  4. Remove the coolant reservoir cap. Do this slowly, as any residual pressure can cause the cap to blow off. Only remove the cap when the engine has cooled down.Add engine coolant antifreeze Chrysler Crossfire 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008

Tips & Warnings


  • When the engine is hot - Never open the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Wait to for the engine to cool down first. You may get seriously burned if the cap is opened when the engine is still hot or warm. The cooling system may be under pressure and may spray hot coolant if the cap is removed, causing burns or other injuries
  • When towing - Due to the added load of the trailer, your vehicle's engine may overheat on hot days (at temperatures over 85°F [30°C]) when driving up a long or steep grade. If the engine coolant temperature gauge indicates overheating, immediately turn off the air conditioning (if in use), pull your vehicle off the road, and stop in a safe spot.
  • Coolant level keeps dropping -If the coolant level drops within a short time after replenishing Visually check the radiator, hoses, engine coolant filler cap, radiator cap, drain plug and water pump for leaks.  If you cannot find a leak, have a mechanic test the cap and check for leaks in the cooling system. 
  • When adding coolant - The coolant is neither plain water nor straight antifreeze. The correct mixture of water and antifreeze must be used to provide proper lubrication, corrosion protection and cooling. Be sure to read the antifreeze or coolant label.
