First of all I believe you mean the Windshield Washer Fluid bottle, the Antifreeze Coolant goes in the Coolant Recovery Bottle,

If the warning light does not go out there is a sensor in the bottle, the sensor could be dirty or does not work, check that for now.

2004 Polaris edge 600The coolant tank exploded and antifreeze was all over the place. What would cause this? Did even get to ride it yet was warming it up. So it was sitting idle for bout 10.

What was the outside temperature? The heat exchangers are under the running boards/tunnel and require to be covered in snow for efficient cooling. IS this model equipped with an electric fan? If so, is it operational. The thermostat may also be in need of replacement

Where do antifreeze go in an 2004 ford freestar

pop the hood, there should be a light yellow partially see through tank that holds either green or orange (probably green in the case of a minivan) liquid that might say coolant on it. coolant and antifreeze are the same but make sure not to put orange in a green tank/green in an orange tank. also check what mix of antifreeze and water is best for your car. they sell it in 50/50 mixes which is common. BUT!! biggest thing is to check which color antifreeze/coolant your car takes and match it.

Do you have to bleed the coolant system when changing the antifreeze in a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am (2.3L). I replaced the antifreeze with basically equal parts of antifreeze and water through the surge tank;...

Usually you have to run the engine until the thermostat opens and then finish filling the system. If there is no bleeder fitting around the top of the engine you would have to leave the radiator or tank cap loose.

1995 toyota 4runner where do you put antifreeze in the radiator or the expansion tank

If coolant mix below 50% and room in tank for antifreeze, pour neat antifreeze in tank.

Run for a while and check antifreeze strength. Parts stores sell a little eye dropper with plastic colored beads to test coolant.

Is it difficult to change the antifreeze in a 2005 Ford Escape V6? Do you need to change any hoses in the process?

Most places can flush out you system for you. But you can do it your self. and only way you need to change hoses if they are cracked and leaking. you can go to you local auto part store and ask how to do it the safe way cus i may do it the wrong way. also pick up the antifreeze you will need while your i just stick a house in the radiator and take the return house off the radiator and let it flush that way and when i think its all flushed i slow it down and put in the antifreeze and when i start to see green i stop every thing and put the hose back on. but the car needs to be running the whole time to cycle it through the whole motor. but you may need to ask the right way to do not the redneck way i do it.

Where do put the antifreeze at?

under the hood you will see a plastic tank with a black lid.. it should have a coolant word or symbol.. this is where you add water and antifreeze mix, depending on your region as to the percentage of water and antifeeze

Where is the thermostat sensor

Both the 4.0L and 4.7L engines use 195� thermostats for all model years from 1999-2004. When replacing a thermostat it is very important to install one with the same temperature rating (the only exception might be with certain performance modifications or chips that recommend or require a different temperature thermostat).


1. DO NOT remove radiator cap first. With engine cold, locate radiator draincock on the right lower side of radiator facing to rear of vehicle.
2. Attach one end of a hose to the draincock. Put the other end into a clean container. Open draincock and drain coolant from radiator. This will empty the coolant reserve/overflow tank. The coolant does not have to be removed from the tank unless the system is being refilled with a fresh mixture. When tank is empty, remove radiator cap and continue draining cooling system. To drain the engine block of coolant, remove the cylinder block drain plug, located on the side of cylinder block below the exhaust manifold.

4.0L engine - refilling the cooling system Coolant recommendations and cautions: The recommended mixture is 50/50 ethylene-glycol and low mineral content water. Never use pure antifreeze. Only Mopar Antifreeze Coolant, 5 Year/100,000 Mile Formula (glycol base coolant with corrosion inhibitors called HOAT) is recommended. This coolant offers the best engine cooling without corrosion when mixed with 50% distilled water. Antifreeze mixture must always be at least 44%, all climates year round. Maximum protection (-90d) is provided with a 68% mixture protection. If the percentage is lower than 44 percent, engine parts may be eroded by cavitation, and cooling system components may be severely damaged by corrosion. CAUTION: Mopar Antifreeze/Coolant, 5 Year/100,000 Mile Formula (MS-9769) may not be mixed with any other type of antifreeze. Mixing of coolants other than specified (non-HOAT or other HOAT), may result in engine damage that may not be covered under the new vehicle warranty, and decreased corrosion protection.

CAUTION: Do not use coolant additives that are claimed to improve engine cooling. 4.0L coolant capacity: 1999-2000: 13.0 qts. (including 2.3 qts. for resevoir) 2001-2004: 15.0 qts. (including 1 qt. for resevoir)

1. Tighten the radiator draincock and the cylinder block drain plug(s) (if removed).
2. Fill system using a 50/50 mixture of ethyleneglycol antifreeze and low mineral content water. Fill radiator to top and install radiator cap. Add sufficient coolant to the reserve/overflow tank to raise level to FULL mark.
3. With heater control unit in the HEAT position, operate engine with radiator cap in place.
4. After engine has reached normal operating temperature, shut engine off and allow it to cool. When engine is cooling down, coolant will be drawn into the radiator from the reserve/overflow tank.
5. Add coolant to reserve/overflow tank as necessary. Only add coolant to the reserve/overflow tank when the engine is cold. Coolant level in a warm engine will be higher due to thermal expansion. To purge the cooling system of all air, this heat up/cool down cycle (adding coolant to cold engine) must be performed three times. Add necessary coolant to raise tank level to the FULL mark after each cool down period.

For more details, you can refer to the Jeep WJ Service Manual Section-07-Cooling-System-Ewj7

Hope helped.

Fuse to turn off low coolant light on dashboard

there are no fuses for that. there is a sensor on the coolant tank that senses when you need to add antifreeze. Check for coolant level and add if low if not low you need a new sensor.

Loss of about 1 cup of antifreeze per week but no drips on ground

Can I ask if the coolant level goes below the "minimum" mark on the expansion tank before you top it up? There needs to be space in there because the coolant expands as it warms up. If the tank is overfilled when cold the coolant will just be expelled - usually through a rubber hose near the top of the tank, as the engine warms up.

You could check next time to have to add coolant by starting the engine and then just sit and watch it for a few minutes to see if / where the coolant is coming out.

The place to add the "stop leak" is where you add the coolant when you are topping it up. Final question - is there any white gunge like mayonnaise inside the oil filler cap? That would be a sign that coolant is getting into the oil system.

I hope this helps - if not please give any further details and ask again. Thanks.
