Coolant boiling problem


There are a number of possibilities:
1. Not enough anti-freeze in the cooling system. Anti-freeze not only protects against freezing, but also boil-over.
2. Defective thermostat. If it is stuck closed or partially so, it can cause overheating.
3. Clogged radiator.
4. Defective water pump.
5. Blown head gasket.

How much coolant goes into a 95 Plymouth voyager mini van


If you look in your owners manual it should have a section title "Fluid Capacities". If you can't find your owners manual you may be able to look for your manual online. Just search for something like "95 Plymouth Voyager owners manual" and you should get a hit. But typically it's not much more than 2 gallons if it's REALLY empty.
Don't forget that you should mix anti-Freeze 50/50 with distilled water!!!

You can buy anti-freeze that is already mixed 50/50 so you don't have to mix it with distilled water.

This is total coolant capacity. That is the "anti-freeze" has been diluted to the proper level.

Water boiling out of water bottle


don`t sound good, but i would see if water was circulating in radiator when warm,and check if fan comes on like it is supposed to to cool it ,if water does not circulate check hoses to make sure the suction does not restrict flow ,if no circulation you could try replacing thermostat (cheapest fix ) anti-freeze dilution (second cheapest ) or uh-oh maybe blown head gasket......

My coolint is evaperating,and i have to add every day


you must have a leak somewhere. Your coolant will not boil unless you have a leak. Check for leak traces of fluid the color of your anti-freeze. Your radiator cap is spring loaded and with time the spring gets weak.
Check that area for leak traces. The easiest way to check for leaks is to look at your driveway. if you have a coolant leak the fluid traces will be on the driveway. Don't mistake your air conditioner water leak as being the coolant fluid. The anti-freeze coolant has a sweet smell whereas the air conditioner fluid is just plain water being removed from the air inside of your cab.

LOW COOLANT LIGHT


If your coolant level is full the low coolant switch is probably faulty they are normaly just a float & the float might be stuck. & Coolant should be used all year round as it is not just anti freeze but is (Anti freeze, Anti boil, & acidity, alkalinity regulator.) It changes the freezing/boiling point (water freeze at o degrees centegrade & boil at 100 degrees but with glycol it changes this depending on what % glycol there is in the system. The acid/alkaline regulator is corosion inhibitor to prevent parts being eaten from the inside out (radiators, heater cores, welsh plugs etc..)

What type of antifreeze can i use?


if you are just adding antifreeze to the cooling system you are safe to use a 50/50 mix that you can get at any auto part store. if you are adding antifreeze to the system after doing a repair ( empty system ) then you will want to get a full ( 100% ) strength antifreeze and add water to it to the correct water/antifreeze ratio depending on the air temp of the area of the world you live in.

What is the ratio of antifreeze to water in an 1989 honda civic?


The mixture of of anti-freeze/coolant to water should always be 50-50, or 50% anti-freeze/coolant and 50% water, and the mixture should not exceed 75-25 or 75% anti-freeze/coolant and 25% water. If the mixture is more that 75-25 then the anti-freeze/coolant will not function properly in the cooling system and it can actually cause the engine to overheat, and if the mixture is below 50-50 then the anti-freeze/coolant protection will be deminished.

Check Engine light came on....


Coolant=Antifreeze. It's the same stuff. It lowers your freezing point and raises your boiling point. That way you don't freeze your engine and you don't boil it when it gets hots. Now, onward....

The easiest thing to do is go buy 50/50 premixed antifreeze. The ratio is ready to be poured right in. The parts store will be able to tell which antifreeze will work best for your Jeep. It more than likely just uses plain jane green antifreeze. That's what I put in mine.

Otherwise you can buy non-diluted antifreeze and add water to make a 50/50 ratio.

A 50/50 ratio is important because too little antifreeze is bad, and so is too much. For instance, a system ratio of 80% is highly ineffecient. That's why I'm suggesting the prediluted stuff. A ratio too low risks having your block freeze up and bust.

If you do add water, DO NOT use regular tap water. Only use DISTILLED WATER. It's cheap, and it's free from impurities, whereas tap water is good to drink, but it bad for your antifreeze system balance due to extra minerals, etc in that water.

You can buy distilled water at any grocery store. It'll be labeled distilled, not drinking, water.

Your coolant should be changed every 2 years unless you have extended life coolant.

Be sure to check for leaks so make sure you're not loosing too much antifreeze. The tank where you pour it is called the reservoir tank, or expansion tank. It's where the coolant goes when it expands when heated.

Be sure not to let animals near the antifreeze. It has a sweet smell to them, but it's deadly. Antifreeze can be recycled. But if you must dispose of it, carry it to your local hazardous waste facility. It only take a small portion of that stuff to taint thousands of gallons of water.

If you have a 4.0 six cylinder especially, be sure to follow these directions. The blocks and heads are iron and they will rust really quick internally with too little antifreeze is used. These are awesome engines often getting 200k miles+.
