Question about GMC Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
It depends on where you live. If it doesn't get below 10 F, one gallon of antifreeze will do. Then fill it the rest of the way with water. If you measure how much of water added, there is a table of temperatures on the bottle to let you know your protected temperature.

if you dont see antifreeze leaking anywhere,its the head gasket,check your oil dipstck,the antifreeze is probally mixxing with the oil as it leaks thru the gasket and will give the oil a milky white color on the dipstick,if you start to see white smoke from the exaust then its leaking into your exaust port,either way head gasket and change as soon as possible,you dont want it in the oil cause you can seize the motor

SOURCE: 2000 GMC Heater Problem
I had problems with a similar truck,a 1998 GMC diesel after checking to make sure the control cables were operating the blend door and blowing the mess of the heater core,I replace the thermostats.Still no heat turns out there was a small amount of debris collecting in the fitting for the inlet hose at the thermostat housing after removing it and blowing out the lines the heat was fine.

SOURCE: Maintenance Toyota Solara 2000
I have kept my cars running for a long time (250k+) by changing fluids as u are doing, and fixing things right away, not letting them develop into bigger problems, so u are destined to have your car for a long time! Many of the maintenance items u list are typically NEVER done by anyone, but they should be. Here's what I recommend from many years of maintaining my cars:
ps flush-50k or 5 yrs
brake fluid flush- every time u have brakes replaced.
Rad.drain, flush, fill -new coolant is said to be good for life of car, I would flush and refill 50/50 coolant water mix every 4 years.
Fuel Injection- I'll get flak over this, but I never do anything to the system, just change your fuel filter every 2 years, or 20k
Trans Flush-don't have it done if they '**** out' the fluid from the dipstick tube. I consider that method a waste. Have the pan removed to drain it, and replace the trans filter if equipped w/ one (u can't change the filter if u **** the fluid out of the dipstick.) Also, some vehicles have a magnet on the bottom of the trans. pan, which collects fine shavings from normal wear and tear (and pieces of metal from a trans. about to go bad). U need to drop the pan to clean this crud off the magnet.
oil and filter (good quality filter-cheap junky ones are much lighter than a quality one) every 3k or twice a year whichever comes 1st
I'll add: air filter- every 20k or once a year
check tire air pressure once a month, rotate tires for even wear (every 5k miles) Can I buy your well maintained car when u r ready to sell it?

You dont have to flush the fluid because transmission fluid has detergents in it that will clean the transmission.You need to go ahead and by a transmission filter, its only abou 20 dollars and it will come with the transmission pan gasket. All you need is the filter and fluid and a catch pan and you can do it in your front yard if you want to. I hope that helps you out!
