How do i replace the coolant in my 96 dodge caravan after i flush the system


Make sure all the drains are closed, start filling the rad and allow the coolant time to drain down, then fill again. Keep filling the rad unit it no longer drains down, just make sure to stop filling it when the level in the rad is just barely visible when looking down inside it. Now fill the overflow bottle to the lowest level mark. Start the car and turn you heater on to full heat. Let it warm up to proper temp, may/may not need to put more in rad. Keep an eye on the level in the rad it will expand and may overflow, if it looks like it will overflow use yout tester to remove some fluid. Once you see the coolant flowing throug the rad wait a few minutes, then put the rad cap on. Let it run a few more minutes to get the rest of the air out, then drive like normal. Check the fluid level in the overflow bottle (engine cold) over the next few days fill to proper level as needed.

How to flush coolant on 2004 grand prix


  • Move your badass w-body (a.k.a. Pontiac Grand Prix) to a level area and set the parking brake. Pop the hood and touch the radiator. If it's warm let it cool before you continue.
  • Twist the radiator cap one full turn (Remember to be careful because even when radiators are cool they can still erupt coolant)
  • Place any type of container (bucket [but has to be able to hold 2 gallons]) underneath the radiator and blow the drain plug. (The drain plug on your Grand Prix is on the driver's side bottom of the radiator facing the engine.)
  • Loosen the drain plug and let the old coolant to drain completely. (You may need a wrench to loosen the drain plug)
  • Dispose the old coolant in a sealable container (The coolant is very toxic to people and pets, so you gotta be careful)
  • Shut the radiator drain plug and fill the radiator with water.
  • Run car for a little bit and repeat the process again. (Let car cool, and drain water)
  • Close the drain plug and fill the radiator with fresh coolant until it's about an inch from overflowing. (DO NOT USE ORANGE DEX COOLANT IT IS HARMFUL FOR YOUR HEADGAKETS) You will need 3 gallons of coolant (SE, GT, GT1, GT2, GTP, GTP Comp G.) and 4 for the GXP model. Be sure to check the drain plug for any leakage.
  • Start your car and turn the heating system to high. Allow the car to keep running until the cooling fan turns on twice. After that happens, switch off the engine and check the coolant level. If it went down, add more coolant. If not, put the radiator cap back on and close the hood.

All antifreeze/coolant has drained from the system. Where is the fill line located on the recovery tank?


Make sure the rad gets filled first then top up reservoir, there should be a mark on the side nearest the belt marked cold.

Is there a special technique for adding coolant to a 1997 pontiac grand prix?


No special technique, just fill it up, you can do both, fill up the expansion tank about half way, or to the full line, and you can pull the cap off the radiator when cold and top it right off. Don't be afraid to fill it up, it will level itself off while driving. Hope this helps.

Antifreeze Leak


First check all hoses and connections if these are leaking there should be a tell tale mark a bit like salt deposits. Also check round the engine as there could be a corroded core plug. Also, inspect the rad for possible leaks. another possibility is the water pump seal gone
