2007 vue 2.2 4 cylinder How do you get all the coolant out. removed radiator drain plug coolant cap and only got 1 gallon out pan- system was full manual showed a little over 2 gallon capacity


Cooling System Draining and Filling (Static Fill)

Draining Procedure

    Warning! In order to avoid personal injury, do not remove the cap or open the cooling system drains from a hot system. Allow the system to cool first.


    Click to Enlarge
    ImportantA 7.6 liter (8 qt) coolant container will be needed.
  1. Place the coolant container under the radiator drain **** located at the bottom of the right radiator end tank.
  2. Open the drain **** and drain the coolant. A small amount of coolant will drain from the system.


  3. Click to Enlarge
  4. Remove the surge tank cap from the surge tank and the coolant will drain from the system.


  5. Click to Enlarge
  6. For LE5 and LAT vehicles, if the engine block needs to be drained, a drain bolt is located near the bottom of the water pump assembly.
  7. Inspect the coolant.
  8. Follow the appropriate procedure based on the condition of the coolant.
  9. • Normal in appearance--follow the filling procedure.
    • Discolored--follow the flush procedure. Refer to Coolant System Flushing .

    Filling Procedure

      Caution! All entrapped air must be purged from the powertrain cooling system before the final coolant level can be determined. Proper coolant level is critical to avoid engine damage.
      ImportantThe vehicle must be level when filling the cooling system.
    1. Slowly add a mixture of 50/50 DEX-COOL antifreeze and clean water to the coolant surge tank. Fill the cooling system as indicated below:
    2. • For LE5/LAT vehicles when the engine block is not drained, add 3.5 liters (3.7 qts)
      • For LE5/LAT vehicles when the engine block is drained, add 6 liters (6.3 qts)
      • For LZ4/LY7 vehicles, add 5 liters (5.3 qts)
    3. Start the engine and check for leaks.
    4. Run the engine and cycle the vehicle from idle to 3,000 RPM in 30 second intervals until the engine cooling fan comes ON, the engine cooling fan turns ON at approximately 102°C (216°F). Repeat this process twice before the engine is turned OFF.
    5. Return the engine to idle, and idle for 30 seconds, then turn the engine OFF.
    6. Allow the vehicle to cool, before adding additional coolant.
    7. ImportantThe level in the surge tank will return into the cold fill range once the vehicle cools.
    8. Add additional coolant to the surge tank until the level is approximately 13 mm (0.5 in) above the surge tank seam.
    9. Install the coolant surge tank cap.
    10. Hope this helps.

Where is the drain plug for the radiator


Should be a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator that unscrews out. It looks like a wing nut has been welded to a bolt on the end of it. Another way to do this is just pull off the bottom hose.

Drain cooling system


Make sure the engine is cold before you drain the cooling system. First remove the radiator cap. Under the hood on the bottom of the radiator you will find a drain plug. You turn it counter clockwise and drain the coolant into a container. After it has been drained add new coolant using the half and half (half coolant half clean water.) After having added the coolant. Be sure to add the kind of coolant that ,("goes with any color".) Replace the radiator cap.Run the engine to operating temerature then be sure to bleed the cooling system. They have a bleed screw near the thermostat housing . (That's where the hose from the radiator connects to.) Make sure all the air comes out from the bleed valve screw until coolant starts coming out. Tighten the screw and let the engine get cool again. check that there is coolant in the container where it says coolant only near the radiator.

How to change/flush coolant on a 2003 jetta


Slap on those vinyl gloves because the ethylene glycol in antifreeze can cause skin damage - however we recommend this because the antifreeze feels like engine oil.With your catch pan in place, remove the radiator drain plug and collect all old coolant. Immediately dispose of the coolant as required by environmental laws - if you are to surrender the old coolant at a waste management facility, be sure you use containers which can be properly sealed to avoid spillage, etc.To expedite the draining process, remove your radiator fill cap to allow air to enter the system.
Also be sure to remove all coolant from your radiator reservoir. We suggest you use the gravity siphon trick - just be sure not to ingest any coolant.

Watch the old coolant as it exits the system - this will give you a good idea of your vehicle's cooling system condition.If you see metal flakes, oily surface, white flakes, etc .. you can make a diagnosis of your engine's coolant system.
Essentially, if you see anything but coolant and some very minor debris, it can indicate the early signs of cooling system failure.When all coolant has been drained from the radiator, replace the radiator drain plug and then fill the system with plain tap water to dilute remaining antifreeze in the engine block.
With the cooling system refilled with tap water, replace the radiator fill cap and run the engine allowing it to reach operating temperature.When the engine's cooling fan turns on, it is an indication that the vehicle's thermostat has opened, allowing the freshly added water to circulate through the engine thus diluting the remaining coolant. Allow the engine to run for a few minutes before shutting it off.
At this point, you can either wait until the engine cools off, or take fate in your own hands and continue the flushing process.Repeat the draining process being sure to once again collect and dispose of all waste coolant.
At this point, if you have opted to purchase a radiator flush kit, you should refill the cooling system with tap water and add the caustic fluid as directed.
Run the engine for as long as the radiator flush kit calls for (usually less than 10 minutes).
engine_coolant_08_thumb.jpg

figure 8
Once again, drain the cooling system, collecting all waste fluid. This is the last time you will be required to collect engine coolant during this process.Now that the cooling system is empty, replace the radiator drain plug and refill the cooling system with distilled water only. The reason that you should only use distilled water at this point is to avoid mineral deposits which will deteriorate your cooling system over time.
Once the cooling system has been completely filled, start the engine to allow the water to circulate. Once again remove the radiator drain plug. As the engine runs, pour fresh distilled water into the radiator fill hole at the same rate that it exits the system.Continue this process until the water being drained from the radiator appears to be clear and free of debris. Once you are satisfied with the drain water's appearance, stop the engine and allow all remaining water to drain out.Replace the radiator drain plug and prepare to mix your distilled water and coolant.
Be sure to mix your coolant to the ratio recommended by your manufacturer. In most cases, the ratio is 50% distilled water and 50% coolant.
As a tip, mix the coolant and water in a third container being sure to observe the proper ratio.As you mix your water and coolant, use your hydrometer to measure the specific gravity - this will give you a good idea of whether or not you are mixing the coolant and water properly.
Once you have mixed enough coolant and water to fill your engine's coolant system entirely, grab a funnel and place it in the radiator fill hole.Fill your radiator at a rate of no more than:
{ 1 L/min. \ 1.1 US qt./min. \ 0.9 Imp. qt./min. }.
Continue the filling process until the coolant reaches the bottom of the fill neck. Now fill the radiator reservoir to the full mark.
With the radiator fill cap still off, start the car and allow it to idle. As the engine runs, continue to add coolant as air escapes the engine and cooling system.As you top up the radiator, be sure to "burp" the cooling system by firmly squeezing the radiator hoses (both upper and lower). Continue to squeeze and release the hoses to help push any errant air bubbles out of the system.
Once you are unable to fill the radiator any further, replace the radiator fill cap and stop the engine - you are finished.

How do you change antfreeze


Dude you should have a drain plug on th bottom of the radiator. Remove and drain it out, run water through the system for a good ten minutes. Then reinstall drain plug and fill your cooling system with the correct antifreeze. You fill canister should be on the left side of the car and you should use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or Havoline DEX-COOL coolant.
