98 yukon heat not working, antifreeze low

Fill the tank with the CORRECT antifreeze up to the fill line (There should be two lines - a "Hot" and a "Cold"). Find out where you are losing your antifreeze - look for a puddle under the vehicle after you fill it. If no puddle, run until the vehicle is warm, shut it down, and look for a puddle.

If your cooling system was empty, you may have to bleed the system after filling the tank. A shop manual for the vehicle should tell you whether you have to bleed the system.

When topping up my mini cooper do i put anti freeze in the radiator or just water and then top the expansion tank with anti freeze


For a little top up simply use antifreeze.

If you need to do a coolant bleed and refill, then depends on the antifreeze you are using. Most products require filling the coolant tank with water and then topping up with 50% antifreeze. Use distilled water. Tap water is mineral and helps corrosion.

Over heating

Try checking your antifreeze levels. If you antifreeze tank is low try filling it to the "Fill" or "Full" level. If your antifreeze tank is empty, remove your radiator cap, (make sure the engine has cooled off. If you try to open it while it's hot, you could get sprayed with hot antifreeze) and fill the radiator slowly. Then refill your antifreeze tank. Remember to always mix the antifreeze with water (50/50 mix) for full protection.

I have to keep on filling antifreeze in the overflow tank.What does this mean?

If you have to keep filling the bottle it means that the coolant is leaking somewhere. Have the system pressure tested, and that should pinpoint the problem

Antifreeze filling sparkplug boot.

well if antifreeze is filling the spark plug boot area there is only one way that can happen,,,the cylinder head must be porous and leaking coolant thru the aluminum casting into the spark plug boot area, youre gonna need a new cylinder head,,,,you could try a ginger root tab or like a radiator stop leak first if it not a major leak,,,thats might by you some time,,,but sometimes that stop leak stuff blocks up the heater core and then you have no heat,,,i owuld just replace the head,but if moneys tight risk the rad stop leak and maybe youll get lucky

How much antifreeze to put in?

There should be a mark there somewhere...generally filling to 3/4 full is fine. If you overfill a bit the worst that will happen is that it will spit out the excess....better than under-filling. Also since you needed to add coolant I suggest you take a good look to make sure there aren't any leaks. Better to take care of any while they are small and not causing big problems.
