How to change my engine coolant in a 1992 ford ranger-v6 3.0 engine, with what kind of coolant and how much of it


Hello again Vicki, you can read my first post to you on type. Now for where and how. Put suitable container under radiator drain valve. Start to drain old antifreeze, you can also loosen radiator cap for faster drain, but make sure antifreeze doesn't start to spill all over your driveway or garage floor. When radiator and engine are mostly drained, I would recommend to change the thermostat. Follow the top radiator hose down to the engine. This is where you'll find the thermostat. Remove the attaching bolts and remove thermostat.If you wish to flush your engine,you can put water down the thermostat hole as well as the radiator cap hole, or you can do a fancy flush. Shut drain below, reinstall thermostat housing without thermostat, fill radiator with fancy flush cleaning solution and water replace radiator cap ,run for time stated on can of flush. Now you go back to where I began and start the draining again. Dispose off antifreeze correctly it is dangerous to animals if they ingest. Close drain,and fill engine with antifreeze thru thermostat housing, when almost to top install new thermostat and gasket. fill radiator almost to top, start engine, open inside heater and let engine warm to operating temperature. At this time the antifreeze level will drop, because thermostat will open, and you can fill some more .This should eliminate any possible air bubbles. Fill your coolant tank. I would like to know how you make out. GOOD LUCK.

What is the correct way to fill the radiator of a chevrolet venture The low coolant light came on then started flashing but the radiator is full of water but has no anti freeze is this the problem


Hi there!
First.- with the engine off and cool, put a flush and drain radiator cleaner run the engine for 10 minutes, turn it off, let it cool down.
Once the engine is not too hot, open the lowest hose of radiator while you put water in the main mouth of radiator.
Once you see the water flushing clear, put the hose back and then fill it with special GM antifreeze, (the one is orange color) put all gallon into it and the rest of water, LOOK FOR THE ONE YOU CAN ADD WATER, THAT'S THE BEST FOR YOUR VAN... Good Luck!

2002 kia rio 1.5, every time i drive the car i need to put about a quart of water in the radiator and fill the tank next to it. no water under the car. No water in the oil or trans. i cant find any leaks....


The water seems to leak out when the engine is running and so it is important to hve the test done when the engine idles.
So fill up and lett it idle to checck if the fault appears.
It is possible that the radiator has got a microscopic leak and is steams out at some stage for sure.
Once confirmed you wilI have to get teh radiator checked with a pressure test. check the bandages of the hose to water pump/engine.
Also the last point if the engine is heating up to oerflow off when it is running and at stops.

I put a new radiator and thermostat in my 02 impala i added water and antifreeze but for somereason i cant seem to fill it up all the way. the water level drops down everytime i fill it and there is no...


Are you filling it through the radiator or the overflow? If it's the radiator fill it at idle and wait for it stop dropping and then put on the radiator cap, Now you can fill the overflow to the correct level, make sure you check the temp gauge on your dashboard it should read in the 1/2 to 3/4 range.

I want to change my antifreeze in my 2003 merc grand marque. Where is the drain plug on the radiator? Do I pour the new antifreeze into the overflow tank on top when I refill it?


look down at rad from top to get familiar with where i am talking about. now opposite side of the lower rad hose is where you want to go, two styles of rads, one has a wing nut type white plug, and other as 6 sided white plug, unthread with pliers or by hand loosen till desired flow is coming out. fill into reservior or overflow tank to half way and run engine til i reaches operating temperature and you has good heat out of heater, this makes sure all air is out of system, and this is complete ttop up to full and install cap

How much antifreeze to add to an emty raterator and over flow tank for a 96 toyota corolla


The best method is to fill the radiator up with a mixture of antifreeze and water. The mixture details should be on the antifreeze container. Once the radiator is full let the car run until the thermostat opens up and you should see the level of fluid go down in the radiator. Fill the radiator again while the thermostat is opened. Then add fluid to the overflow tank to the fill line. That should do it. If you have put in too much it will run into the overflow container when it is not needed in the car.
