Most manufacturers have that information on the bottle of anti freeze that you buy.If your doing this yourself dont use tap water to top the radiator up but use demineralized water (very cheap)as it significantly slows down corrosion issues with the aluminium components

Hi,if you are not loseing water the best thing to start with is a simple kit that will flush out the rubbish that bilds up in the water channels,all you do is put the aditive in to the system by way of exspansion tank or radiater cap then let the car idle untill recermended time is up,then flush system and refill with the the recormended amont of anti-freeze.
you should be able to buy the item at eney good car spares shop.
Hope this was some help.
ps sometimes things just need cleening or ajusting rather than renewing.

Flushing the Radiator


I would get a Prestone Flushing Kit, it comes with a tee to install into the heater hose and then you can hook up a garden hose to the tee, with the supplied adapter, run the hose until you get clear water coming out of the radiator. Remove the garden hose and install the cap. Drain the water out of the radiator and refill with straight anti-freeze.

Radiator flush for my suzuki forenza.


For the do-it-yourself kind of mechanic, there is a kit sold by Prestone that will help you back flush the system using an ordinary garden hose. Available at most any auto-parts store, Walmart & such. It has the basic instructions on the container but I'll give you an overview.

You will need a large container to catch the anti-freeze coming out, You could drain it by removing the plug at the bottom of the radiator first , or remove the lower hose & get most of it out & then just flush the remainder, back-flushing is recommended.

There is a piece that fits into the radiator caps position that helps to aim the water towards a container but sometimes you can't use it due to size restrictions & limitations on space & have to catch the fluid with a drain pan as it overflows.

You will need to install a backflush connector "T". You simply cut into one of the 2 heater hoses, preferably the return line, and install that piece using 2 hose clamps to secure it. The garden hose hooks there.

The engine should be cool, you can crack a head or block by drowning a hot engine with ice cold water.

Just turn the water on slowly, once the anti-freeze stops coming out & it's just water, remove the drain pan & recycle what anti-freeze you can. Remember, most anti-freeze is fatal to birds & animals, including large dogs & children, so clean spills or at least dilute it with water until it is not a threat.

once done, drain the system & refill with the mix you prefer for your area, usually not less than a 50/50.

good luck.

To flush radiater


There are 2 hoses going to your radiator, one near the top and one near the bottom. With the engine cool, remove the radiator cap and then disconnect the lower hose from the radiator (BE SURE to have a catch can to catch all of the fluid!!!!, a few sips of this stuff will kill most cats/dogs). Once all of the fluid has drained out, reconnect the hose and fill the system with water and a radiator flush/cleaner (autoparts store). Drain it once again and refill the system with the correct mixture (usually 50/50 water and antifreeze). Or you can buy the pre-mixed kind at the store.

Good luck!

I am trying to flush anti-freeze in a 2003 Town & Country. I can't locate the drain plug---anyone with a picture or diagram I can look at or description of where it is? thanks, Dan


best way to flush yourself is with a flush kit which will have a "tee" that will go inline with your heater hose - they are available at all auto parts shops - otherwise you are just draining and refilling - whisch will not help anything at all - the kit will flush and clean the entire cooling system

Antifreeze


Do this only if the engine is cold.Set the heater on.Remove the coolant expansion tank cap , place a suitable container under the radiator area , Look under the radiator (bottom rear side) for a plastic screw and loosen this by hand . Move swiftly not to get wet.Remove the bleeding screw on the top radiator hose.Flush the system with a coolant flush solution if the coolant is really dirty.Refit the drain plug , refill anti freeze (check with your parts supplier for the recommended ratio for your area(or your dealer)and top up with water.Run the engine and close the bleed screw once water comes out and replace the cap.Warm the vehicle up and remove the cap when it has cooled down again.Check coolant level and top up.Reset the heater off(if its summer there.)
