How to add antifreeze 2002 dodge intrepid

Open the container of antifreeze. Using a separate EMPTY gallon-size container, pour out HALF of the contents into the empty container, making sure not to spill any. Now, FILL the newly filled container with tap water. Fill the rest of the antifreeze with water, also. Now, you are ready to add antifreeze to your vehicle! Simply locate the radiator cap, (Don't touch it if it's hot!!) and unscrew it. Pour the desired amount of your mixed antifreeze into the radiator. Remember not to do this without proper knowledge!

How to know when there is enough antifreeze in radiator

Hello there and welcome to fixya
Checking your radiator fluid:
antifreeze2.pngEvery modern vehicle has a Radiator fluid overflow compartment that is translucent so you can see where the coolant level is without removing the cap. On the side of the compartment there is a full line and an add line. the coolant should be between the two lines. If it's below the add level add 50% water/coolant to the full level.
The green line is the full line, the red line is the add line in the picture.
If you don't have antifreeze but you need fluid, add distilled water,not ordinary tap water, so mineral deposits won't build in the radiator and cause corrosion or blockage. However, you should keep the correct ratio of water and coolant to prevent corrosion and for the highest level of overheat or freeze protection.
To check the fluid IN your radiator
radcap.png you will need to remove the radiator cap. DO NOT remove the radiator cap while the engine is hot. The contents are under pressure and many people have gotten severe burns by removing the radiator cap when it is too hot.
Notice the word "caution" on the cap in the picture.
It goes on to say the contents are under pressure.
IF you have no choice, but to remove the cap when hot, use a towel and remove it slowly to release pressure before you get the cap off.
The fluid in the radiator should be at the top of the radiator.

Make sure you keep 50% water/coolant mixture in the radiator. Some people put more antifreeze in during the winter, but never put more than 70% coolant. It will reduce it's ability to carry heat away from the engine and prevent corrosion.

Where do I add the windshield wiper fluid?

if you open the hood. Either on the left or right side near the headlight you should see a blue cap with a picture of a water spraying onto a windshield. remove blue plastic cap and just add until full(add windshield washer fluid only). The cap is blue covering a white plastic tube. good luck.

I have an 89 jetta where do I put the coolant and how much water with that

First buy the pre-diluted 50/50 coolant, no water and mesuring required. Looking directly in front of the engine, where your headlights are, you'll find your radiator. On top you'll see a metal cap with some warnings on it about not opening it when hot. so when your enging is cool carfully remove that cap and add 50/50 pre-diluted coolant( DO NOT ADD ANY WATER) until its right at the neck of the opening. Next slowly squeeze your top hose coming off the radiator and you should see one of two things, some bubbles or coolant spilling out. add more coolant to top off, close the cap on the radiator. Next find your Coolant resivour, you can find that by following the small hose coming of the neck of the radiator cap. and fill to the COLD line. Run your car at idle for 15 minutes, allow to cool for an hour and repeat entire process to properly top off.

Do i put water or coolant in a toyota cressida 1989?

You need to find the rad cap in the front of the car or the white plastic bottle that is near it.Once the engine is cold you can take off the cap or open the plastic bottle cap and add coolant to either of these locations,i suggest coolant but if you don't have the option put in water and then replace it with coolant later(before the next freeze).If you ever add water to the cooling system you will need to check it with an hydrometer to see where the freeze point is and then drain down the system some if required and add straight antifreeze.

Where do one out water for the coling system and

Two systems used on Jeeps...On those with a radiator cap, add to radiator then top off recovery bottle. On those with no cap, there is a tank with a screw on cap usually on the right fender. Add coolant there. Use antifreeze, not water or inside of engine will rust. Keep mix at 50/50. Never open either system with engine hot. Best to fill either system with engine running and heater on hot.
