Question about 2000 Pontiac Sunfire
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

It the cooling system is completely empty, (engine block drained) then about 3 gallons of 50/50 mix long life coolant.

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.

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.
