Sounds like a blown Cylinder Head Gasket. Might be a very small leak buy worth checking out.

Trans fluid ed in coolant bottle did flush and two week brown oily goo in bottle

Flush coolant system again. Do you have a brown sludge in the oil. Do this get Preston coolant flush, drain radiator drain coolant tank, fill radiator with water, add the Preston run vehicle for about 15 min remove lower radiator hose from radiator. This will allow all residue to be removed from engine. Replace radiator hose. Fill radiator with appropriate amount of coolant. Disconnect tank from system and let water run through tank until it is clear. Reconnect tank and you should be good. Unless you have oil and coolant mixed which means a blown head gasket or cracked block

How many gallons of coolant does the northstar engine hold?

Coolant should be mixed in most cases to a 50% concentration, meaning one gallon of undiluted coolant will provide two gallons of diluted coolant. Most engines will hold 2-3 gallons of coolant mix. I normally purchase two gallons of undiluted coolant. I pour the first gallon of undiluted coolant into the radiator, then fill the empty bottle with water and add that to the radiator as well to make it a 50% mix.. Then, I pour half the second bottle of undiluted coolant into the empty coolant bottle, and then top both off with water to make two gallons of 50% mix. I then add coolant to the radiator as needed until full, keeping the remainder for topping off later as air purges itself form the system.

Check radiator fluid? Type of fluid,and filling instruction.

There are 3 popular types of antifreeze on the market right now. Green, Orange, and Yellow or universal. If you are unable to tell what color your currently have I would go with the Yellow, or universal, just to be safe. You will want to wait until your vehicles engine has cooled before opening the radiator cap. Fill radiator and coolant reservoir with proper coolant and mixture. If using full strength coolant mix 50/50 with distilled water. If you buy pre-mixed coolant just add straight out of the bottle until full.

Ive only had my suzuki grand vitara sz4 2 mths but a friend suggested i check the anti freeze level and after just looking its on low, will i need to top it up immediately and what sort should i use? Will...

If it isn't over heating it shouldn't be a problem unless you are seeing water in the engine oil. Add a 50/50 mix of Anti Freeze and water to the over flow bottle to the full mark and allow the closed circulation of the vehicle to bring in what it needs. It is designed to draw fluid from that bottle when needed. Always add fluid to the radiator through that unless you have drained the radiator for some reason. Any good Antifreeze will work. Personally I use Prestone and Prestone has a ready mix available as well to simplify the process.

Engine is overheating and I need to put coolant in, what coolant do I use and where to I put it?

A 91 should have regular green coolant. Make sure to read the label on the bottle. Sometimes it is premixed and some times you need to mix it yourself. If you have to mix it your self you will use 1/2 coolant and 1/2 water.

You can add it directly into the radiator through the radiator cap. Make sure the engine is cold before you remove the radiator cap!. Once the radiator is full you can top off the overflow container. It should be on the passenger side of the car near the battery. It will be the white bottle with a black hose going into it.

Do not mistake this with the washer bottle. The washer bottle will have the blue cap.
