Antifreeze fill


You will see several tanks under the hood. One will show a windshield with a wiper blade, this is not the Radiator tank. Another should follow a small rubber line from the Radiator and may say "overflow". This is the correct tank.

If the Antifreeze is LOW you need to pressure test the Radiator and system for leaks. The Antifreeze should not get low. It means there is a problem.

There is a fill line for Cold and Hot on most tanks. It is normal for the level to fluctuate.

If you are really in doubt, go to Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys and they will show you where the tank is.

Heat is not hot at all, have flushed cooling system replaced thermostat replaced heater core and blower motor , but not as hot as it should be


check the density of the coolant. Might not have enough pure antifreeze in it. If you recently changed antifreeze, you should have replace with one gallon pure 100% antifreeze and filled remainder with 50/50 mixture. Did you burp the system after you changed all that stuff. Air in line will cause a vapor locj and will not heat well. !00% antifreeze is bad for your system. Last, you may have headgasket problems.

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.

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.

Replaced water pump and termastate, car still over heats....is there some kind of in-line valve for the coolant


When you put thermostat in did you put spring side towards the engine? Did you get the air pockets out? Do both upper and lower radiator hoses get hot? If both radiator hoses get hot then you got out the air pockets. Does the cooling fan kick on? Is the air deflector still on the car. The next step is to check for blown head gasket. Get the engine hot make sure both radiator hoses are hot and antifreeze is filled to the top hold rpms around 20 to 25 grand and watch for air bubbles. If there is air bubbles and the antifreeze doesn't go down that a good chance of head gasket. I the antifreeze goes down that just air pockets coming out. If you not sure or want to double check after making sure your system is fuel of antifreeze and let engine get cold. Then start car and run 20 to 25 hundred rpms and watch for air bubbles. This sometimes is easier because you're not dealing with that hot antifreeze. They also make what they call a block tester if you want to spend more money. They work but I'm not that thrilled about them. The best way is with an exhaust analyzer also known as emission machine to test for HC in the cooling system. Just be very careful if antifreeze goes up the probe it will damage the machine. If you run through all this checks you should find what is causing the problem. Opps I forgot the temp gauge and or temp light may not be right but if your also steaming it's not them.

Where does the anti freeze go?


The anti freeze is poured into the radiator water and it is necessary as the water should not freeze when in cold weather which can cause serious damage to the parts sepccially the water pump, radiator, engine water jackets/ ports..

Adding antifreeze to 2003 dodge dakota sxt


normaly you add to the plastic res , but lets make sure its full , so when it is cold the engine then open the radiator cap the metal one slowly and first top it off then close cap all the way and fill plastic res to the cold fill line. but usualy you just make sure the plastic tank is either full to the hot line or cold line , which is when the engine is hot or cold. but it is also good to check both .
