You may need to re-set the light by turning the key like you are about to start it then taking off your battery terminal, turning the key to the off position then trying it again

HOW TO LET THE AIR OUT THE COOLING SYSTEM ON A 2002 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE


You should have a vacuum puller, but alternatively, you can purge it by letting in freon on the low side and opening the high side for about 4 seconds, that should purge all the air in the system.

How many gallons of antifreeze will it take ?


Anti freeze is mixed on a 50/50 basis. The coolant capacity varies so check the hand book for capacities and mix the anti freeze to water before adding to radiator. Drain radiator first so as not to mix different anti freeze products.

Coolant lightcame on (2004 Cadilac deville. Had


Is it the LOW coolant light? Your car is equipped with a sensor on the expansion tank (radiator overflow). Right front fender. It's there for when the car heats up. As the engine heats up and the coolant expands it racks into the reservoir/overflow/expansion tank. When the engine cools, it sucks the coolant back in. If your car was low on coolant then there's a good possibility that as it cooled, it sucked the recently added fluid in. Check that it is full to the "cold full" level by looking at the tank before you start it for the day. If it's not, then the sensor is telling you to add coolant. If it is, then the sensor in the tank may be bad.

I need to change the coolant on my 04 GMC Sierra 2500HD diesel where is the drain point and where do I add the new coolant I do not see a radiator cap


There should be a petcock along the bottom of the rad. Most newer rads don't have a cap the antifreeze is added through the overflow tank.

I NEED TO FLUSH THE INTERCOOLER SYSTEM OUT AND REPLACE THE COOLANT, WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS?


  1. Start with a stone cold engine

  2. Open the radiator cap

  3. Open the radiator drain plug and let out as much coolant as will drain';

  4. Replace drain plug and refill the sytem with distilled water

  5. Run the engine for for few minutes until it is warm (not hot);

  6. Repeat steps #3, #4 and #5 until you've effectively replace all of the coolant with distilled water. You'll know your finished draining the system when only clear water drains out.

  7. Drain the system one last time (now only residual distilled water should be in your cooling system);

  8. **** out all the coolant in the overflow tank (I use a Turkey baster or a huge syringe with a short length of rubber tubing.)

  9. Replace the radiator drain plug.

  10. Add undiluted anti-freeze to the system;

  11. Run the engine to mix the distilled water already in the cooling system with the newly added antifreeze.

  12. Check the antifreeze/water concentration with a tester.

  13. Over the next few days, adjust to the desired antifreeze/water mixture over the next several days. You'll likely have to **** out a little coolant mixture from the fill cap to create room for either the distilled water or the anit-freeze you'll be adding to adjust to the desired concentration. Sometimes I adjust by adding either water or antifreeze to the coolant- overflow tank which utimately mixes with the engine coolant;

  14. Don't forget to add collant and/or water to the coolant overflow tank.

How to change anti-freeze(coolant) on 2003 buick century


Hello, perform the following steps in this order:
NOTE: car should be cool, in park and on non sloped surface.
NEVER leave used coolant in an area where children or pets can gain access, Anti freeze has ethylene glycol which can be lethal to humans and pets. Used coolant should be immediately taken in a sealed container to a local state certified recycler for proper disposal.
1.Raise front end of car, and place one jack stand under frame of car on the inside of each front wheel.
2.Place a 2 gallon (low profile) bucket under the radiator drain plug. The drain plug will be located at the bottom of the radiator.
3.Unscrew the drain plug and let coolant drain into bucket. (It may be necessary to adjust bucket so no coolant leaks onto the ground.
4.After all coolant has drained from the radiator, tighten radiator drain plug finger tight, then 1/8-1/4 of a turn with a wrench.
5.Unscrew radiator cap and begin filling radiator using 50/50
premixed antifreeze solution.
6.Continue adding premixed solution until fluid is just below the top lip of radiator where cap fastens to.
7.Re attach radiator cap and lock into place.
8.Check radiator overflow reservoir and ensure coolant is between add and full, add coolant as required.
PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SOLUTION IF YOU FOUND THIS INFORMATION HELPFUL.

Where is th low valve on the 2001 aurora 3.5


The anti freeze goes into the radiator, if the fluid level is really really low, otherwise it goes into the coolant expansion tank which is a black plastic tank on the passenger side of the vehicle, and will say engine coolant on it. You just pop the cap and fill to the line. Leave some room for the liquid to expand when it gets hot.
