You can use any premium brand. Simply follow the directions on the container. It will also tell you how often to drain & replace the coolant. Most brands last either one or two years. The drain valve is on the bottom back side of the radiator.

Air condition blowing hot air. Type of car: 2003 nissan pathfinder 4x4. Should I replace/add coolant?

Lack of Coolant wouldn't cause your AC to blow hot air.

You may have a vaccum leak in your dash board that is causing your heater to remain stuck.

If not this, then you will have to have your AC recharged. You can purchase a recharging kit from your local auto parts store! Fortunately, your vehicle can use the newer type of AC Recharging kits so you have many options!

Good luck and I hope this helped!

The air conditioner is spewing coolant out the nozzle that is used to put coolant into unit. Why? A tried putting coolant into the air conditioner and it isn't getting any cooler.

The a/c dont used coolant, the radiator does, check your radiator cap could be weak, the a/c system used freon, if not cool through vents on dash have your a/c recharge

No air conditioning-needs recharge- with what?

There are a lot of products out there for recharging cooling systems. R-134a is the current coolant that is being used. Wal-Mart and most other parts stores will have an easy to use recharging kit built for r-134a ready systems (a 1998 would have the proper seals and oils).
