If your antifreeze is a pre mix solution,no.
But if your using straight antifreeze you need a
50/50 antifreeze and water mix.

That depends on the brand and type of coolant you want: some are sold in concentrated form and must be mixed with demineralized water in the recommended ratio (on the label) before pouring it in, other are already diluted for a specific ranges of temperatures (usually for temperatures of up to -35 C ).

My coolant is brown in the radiator and coolant tank


time to change the radiator fluid also flush out the system good the brown stuff is surface rust no big deal just have it flushed or do it yourself. make sure you have the proper coolent these days there are 2 main typs of coolent, to put it simply the green stuff and the orange stuff. my chevy truck takes the orange stuff. now you could be seeing old orange stuff and it may look brown to you so make sure you replace it with the correct fluid because they dont mix and you will do damage to your car. also if you find out you have orange coolent in your car you CANNOT MIX THIS WITH WATER.. it will also damage your car..if you have orange and decide to flush out the radiator it might be a good idea to have it done at a shop.. they will know how to do it correctly. if it takes green fluid its simple to flush and repalce it yourself because you CAN MIX WITH WATER. i hope this helps...

I have Opel Astra 1997 model. Should I mix coolent with water or use only coolent? If, so, the propotion of coolent : water


You should always use a coolant-water mix. Not only does it give you more protection fron freezing temps but it also gives you more protection from heat. Coolant added to water raises the boiling point.
Normally, cars and trucks use a 50-50 mix of water and coolant which is fine for most situations.Any pre-mix coolant is this ratio. Pre-mix does cost a little more but also saves you the hassle of doing your own mixing. You do have to watch if you are doing your own mixing because coolant is toxic. It's sweet smell will attract pets to drink and it can kill them. It does take more than a drop or two but it can so if you spill wipe it up.
Pure coolant jugs will have a label on the back that gives you a ratio of water to coolant based on temperatures. Read across to find an average low or high temperature in your area and read down to see what the recommended coolant to water mix is.
You should also pay attention to type. Coolant comes in 2 colors, green and red(or a version of it). Green is for cast iron engines and red is for engines with aluminum. According to those who know the green stuff will corrode aluminum and therefore the red is designed to be aluminum friendly. Using the wrong coolant could void warranty.
Hope this helps.

not knowing what vehicle you have the common problem generally points to a head gasket failure, pull the plugs and if any of them seem white you have a gasket problem

Coolent light on


If the coolant itself is white, it may have mixed with oil. If that is the case, you need to take it to a mechanic for some major repairs

Contamination in coolent system


The brown sludge is what coolant looks like when it breaks down, this stuff usually accumulates in the coolant recovery tank, have a good professional flush done where the block is pressure flushed and wash out the recovery tank with hot water and detergent.
