Find the drain plug on either of the coolant end tanks on the radiator and open it (If you can't find it you can remove lower hose and it will do the same thing) Close the system back up and begin re-filling, start the engine and turn the heater on full hot and continue filling. Leave engine running and add coolant as needed . When it reaches operating temperature it will often try to first overflow a bit then level will drop as thermostat opens. At that point, re-fill again till full, leave running a few more minutes and then put cap back on. Check over for leaks and re-check level after it cools down and top off as necessary. Never open your system when it is hot.Keep pets away from anything you spilled it can kill them if they drink it.

At the bottom of the radiator there is a plastic petcock.drivers side if i remember right. This is ot really the best way.The best way would be to take it somewhere and have it flushed. Make sure to use dex cool.

SOURCE: antifreeze leaks

First thing you'll need to do is find out were the leak is coming from. If it's a hose leak the fix is simple. If, however, the problem is the radiator your better off having repair done by a qualified mechanic.
To find out were the leak is slide a piece of clean cardboard under the car, directly below the engine compartment and run the engine until it reaches operating temp. Shut of engine and look under the car for any obvious leaks and determine were the leak is coming from. If it is a hose you can, in most cases replace it yourself. Replacement hoses are avail;able at auto supply stores. This is also a good time to replace the hose clamps.

Some vehicles don't have one so you will need to draw the coolant out through the radiator or remove the lower hose to drain it.

I need to put coolant into my 2006 Chevy Impala. The reserve is almost empty & I believe that is why my check engine light is on, is that accurate? What type should I put in?


Add the coolant. but this is not why that light is on. Have the codes checked and repost. use the green antifreeze that will mix with all of the antifreezes.

Stopleak can work. But if the mechanic that installed the parts were to use a Radiator pressure tester, he would easily find the leak and fix it correctly. If this leaks after he worked on it, he still has work to finish.

It may need a thermostat but first always do the obvious make sure that the reserve tank for the antifreeze is 3/4 full, low antifreeze can cause a loss of heat. First check that then do the thermostat. Be sure to bleed out the air from the system look for the bleeder screw it is located at the highest spot on the systems connections usually at the upper hoses housing, unscrew to bleed after the motor has warmed up while running.
