50/50 antifreeze and water. pontiac or GM recommends the use of Dex cool antifreeze but it really doesnt matter. You have to check the color of the coolant orange you need to use extended life, if its green just use regular 50/50

The coolant type for winter and summer would be the same, within a particular car itself. Just use the CORRECT type for your car and a proper mixture, usually 50/50 mix with water. There are 50/50 pre mixed coolant gallons available. I believe GM cars require"Dex-cool" specification. The 6-cyl. coolant capacity is approx. 13.7 qts.. The 4 cylinder is approx. 8.7 qts..

If your coolant light keeps coming on, you may have a leak, or problem somewhere.

Having to physically pour coolant every few days,winter and summer,


I assume the coolant is low when u install fresh coolant. ( No pun intended) The cooling system is a sealed system, if u are adding fluid constantly it either means u have a leak or it's burning it. Do u see any leaks, puddles or smoke coming from the engine compartment? Is the coolant mixing with the oil or visa versa, or a hot running engine? could be head gasket. Check spark plugs for coolant or oil. coolant leaking into passenger floorboard? Heater core. Poss coolant switch. If no luck, have the system pressure checked by a shop & stop wasting $ on coolant. good luck.

My low coolant light keeps coming, i replace the Thermostat on yesterday but got in car this morning and light came right back on put water in and drove to work when i got to work cut car off look under...


Low coolant doesnt have anything to do with the thermostat. If the coolant bottle was over filled, it will push out, it needs some air space. only fill it to the full line. If the low coolant light is on, but its not really low, the sensor may be bad. Be sure to use the correct coolant DEXCOOL.

My low coolant light comes on and there is plenty of fluid in the radiator. why?


The sensor that detects if the coolant is at a low level may be bad. It will be in the bottom of the coolant overflow tank. Some are screwed into the side or on the bottom.

I have a 2000 silhouette. the coolant level low light keeps coming on even though coolant has been added. after about 10 minutes of idling the temp rises to just below h.but temp is fine while driving....


Bleed the air out of the coolant system,and add more coolant,to radiator,and reservoir,and make sure the cooling fans are coming on,if the low coolant light stays on,remove the low coolant light sensor,and clean it off,it is located on passengers side in the radiator,it has a wire clip you have to remove,and dont loose it,after cleaning it,put the clip back on the sensor,and push the sensor back in the hole.

My car turns the light low coolant and when i turn it on it comes like smoke. i put antifreese again. but it keeps showing the ligth low coolant


I dont remember the lumina having a low coolant light.

It does have a low washer fluid light though.

You can see if you coolant overflow bottle is full. If it isnt, fill it to the hot or cold mark on the side.

Fill your windshield fluid too and see if the light goes out.

Good luck and be safe!
