SOURCE: 96 GMC Suburban Started to overheat last summer.

Check the oil filler cap for mayonaise. It may mean that your head gasket has gone, Go to a local garage and ask them to do a presure test on each cylinder to see if it fails on one. Have you checked the plugs for cleanness and oil contamination? that's where your problems sounds where it lies.

SOURCE: Radiator removal

Hello jkaxley: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. It is not difficult to change out the radiator. You will need a 10 mm. ans a 13 mm. socket. You will also need tools to remove the oil cooler and the transmission cooler lines. Remove the top half of the radiator fan shroud. Remove the top radiator brackets holding the radiator in. Lean the radiator in to gain access to the oil and transmission lines disconnect the lines. Remove the radiator. Reveres the procedure to reinstall the radiator. Be sure to drain the radiator before you start to do the work. Always catch the coolant as it is fatal to animals when they drink anti freeze.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rare the answer you received. This way we can tell the answer you received helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

SOURCE: How many gallons of antifreeze goes into my

If you are draining your radiator, or just need to add some, there are a couple of options. You can either buy antifreeze in a 50/50 premixed solution, or purchase one gallon of antifreeze and 1 gallon of distilled water (less than $1.00 at your local grocery store) and mix equaly in another container that way you have a proper mixture in your radiator. The 50/50 mixture comes in an orange color and the full strength comes in the traditional green color.

SOURCE: I just flushed my radiator

if you have air conditioning the capacity of your radiator is 24.8 quarts, without A/C it is 27.5. For maximum protection a 50% antifreeze to water is recommended. This of course depends on where you live or plan to drive.

I am going to change out and flush the radiator fluid in a 96 gmc yukon. How many jugs of fluid do I need to fill it back up?


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.

What type of antifreeze does the 96 GMC Yukon use?


any antifreeze will work
you use antifreeze in the winter to keep every thing from freezing
you use coolant for the summer month to keep the motor from
over heating
so there is a difference

How to remove radiator cover to add antifreeze to radiator


Your vehicle is equipped with a surge tank. There is no opening in the radiator itself. To check or add coolant (antifreeze) to your cooling system, screw the cap off of the surge tank.

CAUTION: Do this only when the engine is cool.

This is covered on page 5-26 of the 2004 GMC Yukon Owners Manual.

I just flushed my radiator and bought two gallons of antifreeze. I have a 1998 GMC Sierra 2500 4X4 454 7.4 L. How and how much antifreeze/water do i put it. I have no owners manuel.


the final ratio is half water and half antifreeze, since the engine will have water left after the flush add antifreeze first thenwater and check it with a hydrometer or tester

How do i put antifreeze in a 1998 surbaben truck


You can put it in the recovery tank (white plastic most of the time, sometimes black), maybe 1/2 gallon at a time 50/50 antifreeze to water mixture.

Run the car, and watch the temperature gauge.

Sometimes, if the radiator is cool, you can undo the cap by pushing down and twisting counterclockwise and add directly to the radiator.

My truck is not warming up as fast when the heater is on and it takes a while for my temp. gauge to move


Time to replace the Thermostat and Radiator Cap, if the cooling system has not been serviced, you may want to replace the coolant with a 50/50 mix water/antifreeze. Make sure it's 50/50, to much antifreeze will gel up and to much water will freeze or boil over. If your not sure how to mix the antifreeze, you can buy the pre mixed.

Chaning coolant


Sorry but most newer radiators don't have a petcock. I just changed mine by removing the lower radiator hose.Most newer cars only hold a gallon or so of antifreeze anyway. If you have five year coolant (dexcool) DO NOT MIX WITH ANY OTHER BRAND regardless of what the bottles tell you. If you mix red coolant with green it will turn into a radiator and heater core clogging glop.
