The powertrain warranty for 2015 Renegades is 5 years, 100k. 2016 and later years is 5 years, 60k. There is a class action lawsuit that is supposed to bump the 2015 powertrain up to 6 years but leave the mileage at 100k.

We had lost a little coolant as well, probably through the hoses connecting to the coolant tank. It put our coolant just below the MIN line - so we went to the dealer and were given Mopar coolant 68163848AB. We had noticed it was low because it would make a swashing sound behind the steering wheel when accelerating, and once we topped it off it went away.
We topped it off a little over a year ago and have not had to add any since. Our oil was fine, never overheated, and never had any negative effects that we know of, lol. Thought I would post in case anyone wondered about a part number or swashing sound...

Try topping it off and see if it continues to go down. If after 18000 mile and you haven't had to add yet, it is possible the system is still bleeding the air out of itself.


There are two or three air bleeders on the Renegade. That tells me that air is hard to get out of the cooling system. It is possible that you just had a little air in the system and it needs to be topped off. Especially if you don't have any leaks.

Very Respectfully

Going fast is only half the fun... You get to build it first.

When I first took delivery of my used 2017 Latitude (purchased 1 year ago this week, happy anniversary to me...), I was told everything was checked, it's Certified Pre-Owned, like that is supposed to mean something... I tend to NOT believe that, so I did my own inspection. Air filter clean and new, oil topped off and clean, cabin air filter beyond filthy, coolant level ever-so-slightly below the full line. I replaced my cabin air filter, replaced the air filter with a K&N, and topped off the coolant with distilled water.

The coolant has never dropped since day one. That of which I am thankful.

It's a sealed pressure system .
There should be absolutely no leaks.

Should be doesn't mean there isn't. I've got a real slow leak someplace, but I can't find it. I'm losing maybe a cup every 4-6 months. That's worst case about a third of a teaspoon of fluid seeping out someplace each day. Even with UV dye and pulling off the skid plate for a while that's going to be hard to find.

I just top it up, keep an eye on the level, and move on with my life.

It's nearly always the rubbish hose clips
The actual amount that leaks is small and evaporates off with engine heat.

Check the ends of hoses going in and out of the expansion/header tank for
limescale. And if you find it, replace the hoseclip with a proper good old fasioned Jubilee clip.

Also I've had a compression clip connector break off on a previous engine (Alfa 159 1750 TBi) but stay in place like a loose tooth. It eventually failed. Coolant everywhere.
My mech just whipped off both plastic ends on the hose and the engine pipe and connected
the hose directly to the pipe with...

... a trusty Jubilee clip!

Oh and the expansion tanks had a tendency to spilt on the 159 TBis too. Bad batch or something as other engines didn't have that problem.


The only reason they use these substandard clips is it speed up assembly in the factory.
