Hi annstone105, a 50/50 premix is a good solution for you,there are many brands but for your reference STP 50/50 premix then you dont have to add water it is good to -37C and boil over @ 129C based on a good 15 psi rad cap. However just ask at your local automotive store or gas station and they will help you as it dosnt have to be STP. If you use a 50/50 product you should drain the old coolant and replace till full and test it for weather rating easy to do and any garage will test this at likely no charge to you. hope this helps you good luck :)

My 2001 Daewoo Leganza is leaking coolant I am unsure of what this part is called, I'm thinking the coolant manifold maybe... and I am unsure where to purchase parts.

coolant manifold? No, no such thing. Is the leak coming from engine? Only manifolds there are the intake and exhaust manifolds. Your intake might have a small coolant line (smaller than a garden hose size) running to it. You just have to find the leak to know what to fix. As for where to purchase, any reputable parts store: Napa is my first choice, followed by discount retailers (O"reilley, etc.) Just be aware that discount places and their parts vary in quality.For major parts, buy from the dealership for OEM (original equipment manufacture). For minor parts and maintenance items, shop around for best prices.

I am losing coolant on my car and I see that the coolant from the reservoir is leaking from a little black rubber hose that"s connected to the firewall.

The black rubber hose may be bad and needs replaced. This hose should connect to the radiator at the radiator cap and run along the firewall to the coolant reservoir. Also the coolant reservoir might be cracked and leaking on to the rubber hose, if this is the cause just replace the coolant reservoir which may be a dealer only item, check at you local auto parts store and they will tell you if it is a dealer only item. If you have to replace the coolant reservoir, make sure the car has not been run and the coolant at the radiator is cool, cause when the engine is hot the hot coolant runs into the coolant reservoir till it cools and returns to the radiator when engine is turned off and cools.

What type of coolant does it use

Glycol based (green color) 50/50 with water is fine. Just make sure you bleed the system if you need to add alot. Trapped air in the coolant system can cause overheating. Also, change your thermostat every 30k miles.

I just bought a 1983 honda xr 350 dirt bike but the serial number is scratched out so i can not make out the 2 numbers is it possible to tell me the serial numbers so i can insure it?

Good luck mate numbers are usually scratched off for a reason. I would get your money back before you are charged with receiving stolen goods. be careful when buying used items, always have a police check done before you purchase them especially motor vehicles.
Have a nice day,Timo.

Air condition is blowing heat even on a/c and it's full of freon/coolant! also where is the throttle position sensor located?

Number one, freon and coolant are two different items. Freon is what is circulating in your A/C system to cool the air, coolant is what is circulating through your radiator to keep your engine cool. So which one is it full of. In order to check your freon level you need to put a set of gauges to you high and low pressure line fittings for the A/C or take it to an A/C repair shop to have the system leak checked. Also make sure the A/C compressor's clutch is cycling when A/C is turned on. Now about the T.P.S. (throttle position sensor) I'm not to sure, each vehicle make is different. You can go to auto zone and purchase the book for your car. It runs for about twenty bucks and will tell you where all sensors and switches are located for that make and model.

I want to change coolant fluid on my Durango 2002. One bottle of antifreezze will be enough to mix with water?

This depends on the capacity of the car and the type of coolant you purchase. Read your owners manual. It will tell you the capacity for your car. Most coolants you buy are a 50/50 mix meaning they need equal parts of water to coolant. Make sure you read the coolant instructions. Hope this helps

On the 2005 malibu, where is the radiator? And what substance do i need to put in there? It says cooliant but is that the same thing as water?

The coolant can be found at most stores that sells automotive products. You will need a 50/50 mix of water and coolant. If you had drained you old coolant you can purchase premixed cooland were no water is added. I would purchase two gallons of cooland for you vehicle and change the thermostat as well

I need a cadillac seville sts 1998 4.3L & 32

Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

What type of coolent do i need to use in my 2006 Suzuki forenza?

Just make sure that the coolant is mixed 50/50. Don't worry about the color. You can buy coolant pre-mixed, which says you the trouble of mixing it yourself. Hope this helped.
