    You add to the system 50/50 or 60/40 using distilled water from the supermarket & the correct coolant for your car

00 mitsubishi have antifreeze smell inside while driveing

That would be a leaking heater core.It will need to be replaced.

Heat is not hot at all, have flushed cooling system replaced thermostat replaced heater core and blower motor , but not as hot as it should be

check the density of the coolant. Might not have enough pure antifreeze in it. If you recently changed antifreeze, you should have replace with one gallon pure 100% antifreeze and filled remainder with 50/50 mixture. Did you burp the system after you changed all that stuff. Air in line will cause a vapor locj and will not heat well. !00% antifreeze is bad for your system. Last, you may have headgasket problems.

Engine Diagram 2007 kia sportage

With conventional cooling system, the upper radiator hose goes to thermostat housing on the engine. You drain antifreeze down, a little, remove radiator hose from thermostat housing, remove thermostat housing, the thermostat should be inside the housing.
Some antifreeze is poisonous, dispose of properly.
Install new thermostat, hook everything back up. Add proper amount of antifreeze to the proper mark. Keep an eye on antifreeze level for a while till your sure all air worked out of the system.

It sounds like really dirty antifreeze, check that and if it's so flush the cooling system, refill with new coolant and change the thermostadt. Hope this helps-Jim

Over heating

Try checking your antifreeze levels. If you antifreeze tank is low try filling it to the "Fill" or "Full" level. If your antifreeze tank is empty, remove your radiator cap, (make sure the engine has cooled off. If you try to open it while it's hot, you could get sprayed with hot antifreeze) and fill the radiator slowly. Then refill your antifreeze tank. Remember to always mix the antifreeze with water (50/50 mix) for full protection.

What type of antifreeze is best for my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee? (I just bought it few months ago.) Thanks, Edward

Edward. the recommended antifreeze is the MOPAR antifreeze. I think the additives are the reason that you want that antifreeze.

Heater doesn't blow out hot air

With a COLD engine, open up the radiator cap to see if you have enough coolant. If you are low, it may still be good enough to cool the motor, but will only be able to circulate coolant through the heater circuit with high revs. Do you have a temperature gauge or just a light? If the motor is overheating, you must be just about out of coolant as well.
If you share the cold with me in Canada, you MAY have a frozen radiator/heater if the coolant antifreeze wasn't strong enough for the winter. In that case you if you get in and drive the car it WILL likely overheat since the liquid coolant is solid or slush and can't move through the radiator to cool.
OR... maybe a cable for the heat/cool control is disconnected or you have lost vacuum control for fancier models... did you ever hear a "shhhh' when you moved the heater controls.?
Let's hope it's just low antifreeze... if you add some, make sure you maintain about a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze/water.
Hope this helps...

Best way to change coolant in 2003 sierra

With engine cold, remove radiator cap. At bottom of radiator on left side (as you stand in fronof truck), there is a plastic drain plug that screws into the radiator. This plug does not look like a bottle cap, rather it looks like a large, raised tab. Turn counterclockwise to remove. Have a large pan under the truck at this location, or have the truck parked on the grass. Allow to drain completely. Dispose of the old antifreeze and do let children or pets drink it; it is deadly poison. If you want to do this right, replace the plug, refill the radiator with water only, replace the radiator cap, start engine and let run until opwerating temperature is reached (about 20 minutes), then turn engine off, let cool completely, and repeat the drain procedure. This will more thoroughly remove the old antifreeze from the system. Now refill the radiator with the proper mixture of new antifreeze and water, run engine to proper operating temperature. turn off engine and let cool completely. Add additional water and antifreeze into the coolant overflow bottle if necessary. After changing antifreeze, you may need to add more again after couple of days.

It is common to have issues with the tank its very simple to replace.Just remove the screws and or clips the hold it in place and loosen the hose clamps.We always fill the upper radiator hose with antifreeze before installation to insure proper level,and reduce the amount of air in the cooling system.
