If in alaska then fill with pure eythelene glycol if in the south then a 50 % soloution will suffice even 20% but the stronger the antifreeze the better the anti corrosion properties but it will find the weak spots for a leak ,how much it holds i have no idea but a 4cyl engine will hold about 2 imp gallons Sorry iam a europeon mechanic with no product knowledge of this vehicle

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Sunfire is dumping antifreeze out the

Common causes include: leak from engine, hoses, etc. causing overheat due to low coolant, electric fan not coming on, internally obstructed radiator, external obstruction to radiator (leaves paper. plastic bag on front of radiator of stuck between radiator and A/C condenser), bad thermostat and last, blown head gasket. Proper testing for any and all these conditions will give you the answer you are looking for. If the antifreeze is overflowing without any overheat, it can either be over-full, or in some cases, a head gasket can do this by filling the cooling system with exhaust and driving the coolant out.

SOURCE: Were is the thermostat located in a Pontiac Sunfire 2000?

Hi:
Your thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is what the upper radiator hose clamps to on the top of your engine. Basically, you need to start with a cold engine, drain your radiator, then unclamp the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently tap on it to remove it. clean up the mounting surfaces on both the engine and the housing, and install a new thermostat, and new gasket. tighten to proper torque, reconnect the radiator hose, then refill up the radiator and cooling system.

I have a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire I don't know how much antifreeze put in it they say you can't add water to it so how many gallons of antifreeze do I put in it thank you in advance


If the system is empty, it will usually hold about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 gallons of liquid. You can add water, but you want to make sure it is distilled water. you do not want to use tap water as the minerals will clog up your system causing more expensive future repairs. But you also do not want straight water as the boiling and freezing points are not optimal. Your best bet is to use premixed universal coolant.

2000 pontiac sunfire starts only when gas pedal is held to floor, idles rough and white smoke comming to exhaust changed IAC valve..no change


If you have excessive white smoke coming from the vehicles exhaust, it sounds like your headgasket is failing. Especially having a rough idle too. Check your coolant level, does your exhaust smoke smell sweet, like Antifreeze? If so, the gasket has blown. Hope this helps...

How much antifreeze should i put in radiator after a flush


sytem capacity is 8.6 qts. you want a 50/50 solution, so drain alittle more than a gallon of the straight water out, and add 4.3 qts. of dexcool antifreeze or equivalent. i always go slightly stronger just to be sure, but not too much antifreeze as it doesn't work straight. no more than 4.5 qts.

Fuel gage Not reading accurate fuel level


sounds like you got a malfunctioning float on your fuel pump (works like a toilet bowl) try adding magellans mystery oil (you can find it at most part houses like napa ect) to you fuel for a few tanks to see if it can loosen things up if not probably going to need to replace the part
