This particular car is probably still running the green antifreeze in it. You can purchase some from prestone that will mix with all types and will not hurt the vehicle. If you are topping off the overflow bottle on fill it halfway up that way it gives it room to recirculate without overflowing.

Where do i put coolant in to my 2003 ford taurus

The coolant bottle is the plastic container to the left as you face the engine bay, only top up to the minimum line when cold.

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante. It seems that when I am driving at higher speeds the engine runs a little warm. I am not overhearting but want to address issue before a problem. What could be causing...

There are several things to check:
  • Low coolant level
  • Leaking radiator hose; a small leak under pressure would cause you to lose coolant
  • Leaking radiator line (located on the bottom of the radiator
  • Bad thermostat; A bad thermostat will not allow sufficient coolant to flow to keep the engine cool

Low coolant light flashing.where do i add antifreeze? i see i large plastic overflow container with what i believe said dexcool? there

Yes that is where you add coolant, but the sensor may be bad if the coolant level is within the lines on the tank marked Hot and Cold

I'm not too familiar with Saturns ('98). How do I fill the radiator. There is little smoke around where the engine is and I just checked the oil, coolant, and transmission and they're fine, so I'm guessing...

if the radiator was empty the engine would be extremely overheated, some dash lights would be telling you about it and you could smell it. Radiator coolant level is maintained through the overflow container on top of the inner fender, it looks kind of like a wiper fluid container. opaque plastic, snap open lid, connected to radiator via a hose, has hot and cold fill lines on the outside.

When i am in traffic for a long time the exhaust system let out alot of white smoke i recently did a tune up and i don't know what is the problem. My car is the mitsubishi galant 2003

white smoke is an indication of water in the cylinder that isnt burning (white smoke is steam). also this indicates that you have a bad head gasket.

Check Coolant / STOP lights

It depends on the level of the coolant...
There is likely a float switch if it is checking for the amount of coolant. This would probably be in the overflow container off to the side. If the level is fine but the lights still come on, follow the wires from the coolant sensor back a little bit to see if they have come unplugged from the harness.

What kind of coolant does a pontiac grand am 2003 take?

I found out the hard way -this is soooo important. It is imperative that you use the orange dexcool. it is designed to withstand certain temperature. If not used properly - it could start a domino effect thats very costly. T.M.I One time i let my boyfriend check my oil- simple enough right? like most people do, the water level was checked as well. he filled reserve w/ plain water all the way to the top ( instead of where coolant level line is) The results were over heating (plus found out later after melted heads) that the threads to reserve cap were stripped. which is what lead to lake of pressure in coolant line.

Heater on 2003 Buick Century only works when the rpms are up

Your likely problem is low coolant level. Check to make certain that your coolant level is topped up in the radiator and that coolant is also in the reservoir at the appropraite level as shown when on container when the engine is hot or cold. When the coolant is low, you have to have higher RPMs to get the coolant to pump through the system and heater core.

2003 mitsubishi diamante thermostat

Follow the lower radiator up to the engine. It's in the housing at the end of it.
If you're overheating/loosing coolant, you may have a leaking heater core.
