Please tell us you at least are looking for the location
of the leak

I would stop using it at the first sign of any leak & repair myself

If you can't do that --then get to a repair shop

Temperature just dropped only have 1 gal. antifreeze in .Book I have says a 7.5 1997 cooling system holds 23.6 qts.How much should I put in?


23 quarts is nearly 6 gallons which is a big cooling system so I guess it belongs to a commercial vehicle or PSV.

The minimum safe antifreeze solution is 25% but this gives only drive away protection for a few degrees of frost and the windchill factor can still freeze the radiator if the engine isn't thoroughly warmed before driving away.

Practically speaking a 33.3% solution is reckoned to provide the minimum protection as the coolant will turn to a semi-solid mush under very low temperatures and limit the possible expansion damage. It should be possible to start the engine. No freezing is likely to take place in most frosts experienced by the temperate regions.

A 50% solution is reckoned to be the minimum for good frost protection and makes best use of the antifreeze's anti-corrosion additives as well as providing a good summer coolant.

A 60% solution is reckoned to provide comprehensive protection.

Im trying to replace my coolant and I'm not sure how much to put in. It's the 4.3 L v6 in a 1988 GMC c1500


Don't know the exact amount but around 2-2 and a half gallon. Do this use one gallon straight antifreeze and one gallon water run engine for a few minutes then turn off. Check level and top off radiator. Add appropriate level to side tank

1997 sentra holds how much antifreeze?


Out of antifreeze like you lost it all? Buy a gallon of full strength. Take it home and mix it with 1 gallon of water. Now you have 2 gallons. Assuming you didn't some how lose all of your coolant, this is more than enough for you. I don't think you can buy less than 1 gallon of coolant anyway.

1991 Cadillac Fleetwood. The heater was working on passenger side but not that warm. Added antifreeze. Seems to be leaking it. Keep adding. gone thru 2 gallons. How do i get heat.


If you've added two gallons of antifreeze, you need to find out where it's going. Make sure the antifreeze you are adding is diluted with water in a 50/50 solution. Pure antifreeze has little freeze protection and boils quickly. If there is no visible leak, check your oil for coolant contamination. Fill the radiator and leave the radiator cap off. Put the heater controls on hottest setting, but do not turn the heater on. Start the engine and watch the coolant. If the coolant level drops, add more to full. If the coolant is flowing thru the radiator when you first start the engine, the thermostat is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the water is not flowing, then keep an eye on it and wait for the thermostat to open. Add antifreeze to keep the radiator full. Look for air bubbles or lots of foaming in the coolant. That would indicate a blown head gasket and the reason you are losing antifreeze. If there's no bubbles, and the coolant level stays full, put the radiator cap back on and see if the heater is working better.

I just purchased a 1999 Cadillac Deville. Drove fine for a few days. Today I drove 75 MPH for 20 miles on freeway and car began to overheat. Dashboard told me to replace oil. Checked the coolant, it took 1...


When a Cadillac (Northstar) overheats, It will give the message to change the oil. If you run a Northstar and keep running it long enough it will start shutting off cylinders and stop the A/C compressor to help protect itself. In this condition I would check for a blown headgasket. Possibly your technican will find the problem. Could also be stuck thermostat, dirty radiator Thanks

99 Firebird still overheating after repairs and antifreeze


overheating is most likely a bad thermostat, but the coolant loss is a second big concern. Does the exhaust look like steam? You could have a cracked block and the coolant is leaking into the engine. Also check the oil for contamination.

Antifreeze drip on drivers side inside cab of 2000 Audi A6 2.7T


leaking heater core or hose that feeds it. look for hoses that pass thru the firewall to passenger compartment. Most times the hose is clamped to a pipe at the firewall so you may just need a hose
