How many gallons of coolant in a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada?

I understand I need to use DEX coolant (the orange stuff), but I was wondering if I should use it full strength or 50% and exactly how much I need. - THANKS in advance!

SOURCE: Where is the radiator cap on 2001 Olds Alero?

if you dont see a radiator cap then the cap for your resevoir tank also serves as your radiator cap, thats where you would put your radiator cleaner and dex-cool in at. it is pressurized just like a normally radiator is with a normal radiator cap on it so dont open it when its hot! the resevoir cap should also have dex-cool stamped on it

possibly, but the most common problem is the engagement motor located on the rear of the transfer case. Motor looks like small wiper motor and can be replace fairly easily.

Coolant is low in my 1999 intrigue.. just bought it with 38,000 miles.. it says to put dex-cool in it.. should I?

If it has dex-cool in it now then yes add dex-cool to it. So if the antifreeze is orange add dex-cool and if its green add the green antifreeze. It won't hurt it to switch the antifreeze but if you are topping it off, add what is already in it.

What type of coolent do you need for it 98 olds

It would have had "Dex-Cool" from the factory. If it still looks red/orange than use the "dex-cool". If it looks green than regual green coolant is fine. If you can't tell what color it is than its time to have the cooling system flushed. Have it flushed with the green stuff, it will save you some money.

What type antifreeze does 1995 Lasabre take?

Most likely Dex-cool, the nasty orange engine eating stuff of lawsuits (try googling dex cool lawsuit for some background.) If the cap on the overflow / expansion tank has orange lettering, it came from the factory with Dex-cool (it will also tell you so.) If it has green lettering on that cap, or doesn't specify, then the old style green stuff is the order of the day.

To make your life easier, there is coolant available which will mix with every other kind, and it only costs a dollar or so additional at the parts store.

If you have Dex-cool, open your radiator cap - the actual one on the radiator, not the overflow - and look for rust or something that looks like Satan's idea of Jell-o. If you see either of those, have your cooling system flushed by a mechanic - it will be money well spent.

Personally, I use the "mix with everything" or G-05 type coolant in my vehicles. Any that had dex-cool or even the old green stuff got the new stuff at the first opportunity. It is long lasting (good for about five years) and tolerant of crunchy water, and will not harm your engine, no matter who built it.

Problem is i recently bought a 97 saturn and there was no owners manual. i checked the car for fluids yesterday and it needs coolant on the cap it says special coolant see owners manual. i just need to...

hello there

there are two types of coolant that were used in your car: your coolant bottle or cap may have a orange or green dot on it.

Orange dot = DEXCOOL
Green dot= Eythelene gycol (green stuff)

All the 97' and UP had dexcool. 96' was the transistion year, some one way some the other.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.
