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

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.

How many gallons is radiator fluid


On the 4 cylinder you will need 1 1/4 gallons of antifreeze mixed with an equal amount of distilled water for a 50/50 mix. On the V6 you will need 1 5/8 gallons of antifreeze mixed with an equal amount of distilled water for a 50/50 mix. Make sure and use the correct type antifreeze.

Coolant level ok no leaks new 195 deg. thermostat still very little heat from heater defective heater core?


I am assuming your vehicle has the pink antifreeze called Dexcool. This is the recommended coolant for all late model GM cars and trucks. This coolant tends to form a pasty sludge in the cooling system which can lead to overheating and/or plugged up heater core. Try flushing the cooling system with a good aftermarket product such as prestone radiator flush. First thing to do is drain all the pink coolant, then add the radiator flush and fill with plain water. Run the engine according to directions on the flush container. Drain the radiator again and refill with plain water. Run the engine for a few minutes and drain again. Keep repeating this until all the pink antifreeze has been eliminated. Fill the system with 2 gallons of green antifreeze. Make sure the antifreeze container says it is compatible with aluminum engine parts. Hope this helps. If it does, then you won't have to replace the heater core.

How much antifreeze does it take


Hi, empty, this truck will hold 11.5 quarts for a 4cyl, or 12.1 qts for a 6 cyl,so either would be about 3 gallons of dexcool 50/50 mix with water. If you still have coolant in the engine, and you are just doing service work, like a water pump, or radiator, or a flush, you would use probably 1/2 of that. Good luck...coop

I am putting in a new radiator on my 99 hyundai sonata 2.5 l how much radiator fluid do it hold


i do not know exactly but that size vehicle usually holds almost two gallons, fill it up, put the cap on the radiator, run the vehicle until the temp guage is at normal operating temp, then turn the vehicle off. after about a 15 min wait, use a rag and take the radiator cap off slowly and make sure there isn't any pressure behind it. after removing, top off the radiator again and fill the overflow tank to the max level. this should get all the air out and get you on the road again. check again everytime you get gas for a couple times making sure that the level is good.

Chaning coolant


Sorry but most newer radiators don't have a petcock. I just changed mine by removing the lower radiator hose.Most newer cars only hold a gallon or so of antifreeze anyway. If you have five year coolant (dexcool) DO NOT MIX WITH ANY OTHER BRAND regardless of what the bottles tell you. If you mix red coolant with green it will turn into a radiator and heater core clogging glop.
