When I do a flush on my 2008 HHR how much antifreeze does it take to refill my system?

on average they take 2 jugs anti-freeze mixed with water to fill the system if it is totally drain, meaning the rad block and heater core is drained. if your just draining the radiator and what drains out of the engine while draining the rad its more like 1 to 1.5 jugs of anti-freeze/water mix.

Power Steering Noise Grand Caravan & Town & Country

2001-2007 Models Do you hear your power steering wining. Been to the dealer saying "Its the pump going bad"......"System needs to be flushed, fluid is dirty" & my favroite "Your rack is bad". Folks 90% of the problems is the power steering reservoir filter. To change this filter you have to change the reservoir. The reservoir has 2 hoses attached to it, one small(return line), one large(exit/feed line). When the fluid returns to the reservoir through the small line into the reservoir & through the filter, back into the system. Filters get cloged. To change you will need. One NEW Reservoir $28 Chrysler Part # 4743012AA , buy this first looking at it explains alot. 2qts ATF 4 $11 to change the fluid in the system. Socket set with 6mm to 10mm & 4in extension, 1 channel lock to remove clamps on lines, flat head screwdriver. Old towels or rags, 1 turkey baster $1, 1 paint nipple or small ballon to fit over the small return line opening on the new reservoir(SEE PART #2!!!), 1 old clear washer fliud jug. To remove the reservoir sitting right on top to the drivers side. You will need a 2nd person for PART #2. Run car 10 min. to warm up the fluid & get it pumping through the system. Shut car off, put towels around the reservoir. Remove cap throw away. Using the turkey baster remove as much of the fluid as you can. Remove & slide the clamps back out of the way 6in. Remove lines fluid will come out of the lines. Remove the 2 bolts from the mounting bracket( DO NOT LOSE). Snap or cut the clip holding the 2 cable on the front of the reservoir. Looking at the new reservoir see the slot on the bottom, theres a 10mm bolt underneath. Use 10mm & extension, loosen the bolt only. Remove reservoir. When putting new one on DON"T PUT the RETURN LINE ON. Part #2 New reservoir in place???? Everything tight ,but not over tightened?? Remove some of the towels except under the return line area. Using the paint nipple place over the return line opening on the reservoir, this is important that the system retains presure. Smash the old washer fluid jub to place into the engine compartment up near the reservoir, DON'T LET TOUCH THE EXHAUST. Place the return line in the jug. Fill the reservoir to the top, but not into the neck. Place cap on reservoir. With a 2nd person starting the car for 3 or 4 seconds. Window or door open so they can hear you say "shut it off". Watch the fluid level drop in the reservoir, DON"T LET IT RUN EMPTY!!!! Holding the jug when doing this the old fluid will pump out of the system into the jug, you will be able to see this with the clear jug.. Repeat untill 1qt of fluid has been added to the reservoir & pumped through the system. Remove jug from car, empty the fluid into the empty AFT 4 bottle. Put jug back into place, repeat the Fill/Start/Shut off. Is the fluid running clean REAL RED into the jug, if not repeat till it runs RED. Remove paint nipple place line on quickly. Put clamp into place. Fill the reservoir to the top fill line. Remove all towels. Start the van, check the fluid level.Fill if needed. To bleed the system of any air that might have gotten in, with the car running turn the wheel all the way to one side & then the other without hitting the stops do this about 10 times. Check for leaks. Check fluid level. Your done clean up mess. Hope all your noise has gone away..... 2003 Grand Caravan ES by Chris

Coolant tank leaks out but no puddle or drip can be found been in the shop twice loses heater when filled up heater works fine has there been a recall on this or is this a bad sign of the motor failing

You most likely have a crack in the coolant overflow jug (tank). The jug is a 2 piece plastic unit that is seamed in the center and they always crack at the seam. Sometimes it will not show up when pressure tested the system, you need to remove the jug, wipe it down, fill it with water and check for leaks

Your 1997 Avalon will not work the same as when it was new. Midway is normal for a 1997 car without signs of leak. If you haven't change the coolant since you acquired the car, then flushing the old with new is the best suggestion.

Does anyone know when the water pump usally needs changing on ford focus 1.4 2003

Water pumps generally do not need routine replacement. A good sign is leakage og coolant. Any detrimental wear such as a bearing will cause leakage of the seal.If it is a precautionary thought, Change it around 75,ooo miles. FGood luck, Ned

Car needs water re-filled everyday and in the oil it has a creamy colour substance which i have now noticed in where the oil dipstick is too

You need to change your water-pump before it gets your engine damaged. this is only a sign that the water-pump is bad wherein water misses with the oil.

Treat this fast.

rate this too.
