No, just put it in the container marked coolant on the cap to full line, start engine, wait for thermostat to open, (getting heat), then refill to full line.

I own 95toyota 4 runner. I need help on.the best process to drain,and refill engine coolant. I thank every body for any tips and advice I recieve.


To drain the engine coolant, it is best to do it when the water in the engine is cold. Remove the radiator cap. Unscrew the hose clamp on the lower rubber pipe that connects the radiator to the engine.
Let the water flow out completely. Connect up the hose and clamp when done. Refill the radiator with water and enough antifreeze recommended for your vehicle. Before replacing the radiator cap, start the engine and watch the water level, add water if necessary. Once the level remains constant, replace the radiator cap.

Where to refill a flushed radiator on 1996 pontiac sunfire


If there is no radiator cap on the radiator, that would indicate to me that the procedure for flushing and re-filling is done with the motor running, and the heat on high. Filling is done by pouring antifreeze into the coolant reservoir.

Best way to change coolant in 2003 sierra


With engine cold, remove radiator cap. At bottom of radiator on left side (as you stand in fronof truck), there is a plastic drain plug that screws into the radiator. This plug does not look like a bottle cap, rather it looks like a large, raised tab. Turn counterclockwise to remove. Have a large pan under the truck at this location, or have the truck parked on the grass. Allow to drain completely. Dispose of the old antifreeze and do let children or pets drink it; it is deadly poison. If you want to do this right, replace the plug, refill the radiator with water only, replace the radiator cap, start engine and let run until opwerating temperature is reached (about 20 minutes), then turn engine off, let cool completely, and repeat the drain procedure. This will more thoroughly remove the old antifreeze from the system. Now refill the radiator with the proper mixture of new antifreeze and water, run engine to proper operating temperature. turn off engine and let cool completely. Add additional water and antifreeze into the coolant overflow bottle if necessary. After changing antifreeze, you may need to add more again after couple of days.

I got a 99 sentra keeps over heating just recently changed thermosat and flushed raditor and i hear a whistling noise near firewall on the passanger side


there is probably air in the heater core,if you are fairly familiar with your car simply run the car 20 minutes with the radiator cap removed make sure to keep an eye on it a little spillage is normal do not remove the radiator cap when hot, turn the heat on high , be prepared to fill radiator with coolant as it will probably need some all if you are not familiar with your car have a certified tech perform this procedure for you

Is there a special way to add coolant to the Grand PRix


I assume it's a V6, I know from working on Fords and when we would refill the radiator on a V6, we would take the upper hose loose from the radiator and back fill it that way. Hope this helps

Refilling Anti-Freeze


no ther isn't a special way to refill the radiator. the way they are describing it is a way that you wont get any air caught in the lines. otherwise you can just put anti-freeze in the radiator or the overflow tank.

RADIATOR COOLANT REPLACEMENT BMW E36 1992


Seeing as you just replaced the water pump, there should be little fluid remaining.

Remove the drain plug from the bottom driver's side of the radiator. Let it drain into a large pan. Once draining is complete, remove the bottom radiator hose from the passenger side of the radiator just to get everything out of the engine if the engine block drain plug didn't remove all of the fluid. Replace the plugs and lines if removed.

Fill the radiator reservoir and start the engine with heat controls on high. open the bleed screw beside the filler cap just enough to let air out. Keep refilling reservoir as the engine sucks it into the radiator. Only fill it to the cold line. Once it stops moving below the Cold/KALT line, replace the cap and close bleed screw.
