2.0L DOHC engine: 6.8-7.5 liters (1.79-1.98 gallons). Different years and different engines vary the capacity, but 2 gallons will likely take care of most Sportage coolant fills.

How much antifreeze do I need to get before I flush out my cooling system?


If you are buying "full strength", i.e not premix, you will need half of the coolant systems full capacity listed in your owners manual. the remaining fluid should be plain water, preferably distilled. If you buy premix, you will need an amount equal to the systems capacity. Coolant is designed to provide maximum freeze/boil protection when mixed half and half with water. Confirm this with the tables you will normally find on the coolant packaging.

I want to flush the coolant on a 2003 Kia Optima 2.4 liter Auto with A/C. How much antifreeze should I buy to mix with water? What is the total coolant capacity?


Coolant capacity is 7.7 qts./7.3 liters, for a 2.4 liter 2003 Kia Optima.
You will not be able to get all the coolant out of the engine, unless you do a thorough engine drain and flush. If you only plan on draining the radiator, you will need less than 2 gallons mixed total to refill it, since some coolant will remain in the engine block and heater core.

I just recently changed the heater core and added antifreeze to my 1990 Buick Skylark (2.5L) and noticed recently that the fluid level in my antifreeze reservoir is low. Wanted to know what the antifreeze...


There should be a fluid capacity chart in your owners manual. You can also just go ahead and fill the reservoir to the proper level with coolant and keep an eye on it. If after a week you notice it low again and you still can't find the spot where the leak is, I'd try using some good old stop leak. Also, take a look at your oil to see if it has coolant in it. If so, it will have a brownish grey sludge gathering around the oil filler cap. If that's where your coolant is leaking, you may have a leaking head gasket and that would explain why you can't find a leak elsewhere..

What type of coolant should be put into the engine coolant cylinder


Coolant recommendations and cautions:


The recommended mixture is 50/50 ethylene-glycol and low mineral content water. Never use pure antifreeze. Only Mopar Antifreeze Coolant, 5 Year/100,000 Mile Formula (glycol base coolant with corrosion inhibitors called HOAT) is recommended. This coolant offers the best engine cooling without corrosion when mixed with 50% distilled water.


Antifreeze mixture must always be at least 44%, all climates year round. Maximum protection (-90d) is provided with a 68% mixture protection. If the percentage is lower than 44 percent, engine parts may be eroded by cavitation, and cooling system components may be severely damaged by corrosion.


CAUTION: Mopar Antifreeze/Coolant, 5 Year/100,000 Mile Formula (MS-9769) may not be mixed with any other type of antifreeze. Mixing of coolants other than specified (non-HOAT or other HOAT), may result in engine damage that may not be covered under the new vehicle warranty, and decreased corrosion protection.


CAUTION: Do not use coolant additives that are claimed to improve engine cooling.

How many gallons of antifreeze


The easiest way to find out is to check your owners manual provided with the vehicle. Towards the end of every manual there is a fluid capacities section that will tell you the exact capacity of the coolant system.
If you are simply trying to top off there is an overflow jug that will have an indicator line on it. The antifreeze should come to the line and should be filled while the engine it hot.

Antifreeze


12 quarts is the total capacity for a windstar without rear heater. Unless you are draining the entire system, including the coolant that will remain in the engine block, you will likely only need 6-8 qts.
