Engine

My 2011 Crysler 200 was overheating. I put some Prestone antifreeze in it & drove home. Now it's gumed up Help!!

The antifreeze said for all makes & model vehicles. Car temp range stayed at the middle hash mark while driving approximately 50 miles to my house. Today it a gum substance in the coolant tank. I haven't tried to start the engine since getting home. What do I need to do?

Either the coolant has been mixed with a non-HOAT coolant, and/ or there may be contaminants in the engine block itself, that block the heater core. Be sure to add coolant that is equivalent; Chrysler 200 2011-2012, Coolant/Antifreeze by MoparĀ®. 1 Gallon (Orange - HOAT ethylene glycol) OEM Approval: Dodge Chrysler / Specifications: MS-9769. Recommended 50/50 mixture with distilled water.

What about the current situation with my coolant system having this substance in the coolant tank Jimm. I would suspect that it's now in my hoses but I don't see any evidence of it on my oil stick. Will a flush get rid of it or what do I need to do?

Flush the cooling system and replace the coolant as recommended.
