I have a blackish color in my coolant resevore. Is this due to due to demodox coolant or do i need a radiator flush done.


You mean DexCool coolant? If it's black, you need to flush the system and refill with the recommended coolant. A radiator flush only removes 1/3 of the coolant in the system. YOu want a full coolant flush.

How come I have a bad smell when I start my 05 Pontiac Montana SV6 and heat won't kick in??


Any chance you have loose "fan" belts, they may be slipping and it smells like burning rubber? Or could be a bad coolant leak if the smell is like antifreeze, so not enough coolant to get to the heater coil. Have you checked your coolant level recently?
And perhaps all fluid levels need to be checked. Have you had it serviced by a competent well recommended Mechanic at the recommended service times?

How do I add coolant to my 2006 dodge stratus sedan 4 cylinder I have coolant just bot sure on mixture ratios


The coolant bottle is under the hood and is labelled. A 50/50 mix of water/coolant is recommended. DO NOT take radiator cap off unless car is cold . HOT coolant will burn skin deep it takes a lot of water to remove from skin.

I have a pontiac sunfire 2001, Can you poor water to the coolant or just plain coolant? . At the plastic container where you put the coolant it is marked coolant only.... Help!!!! Where you put the water?


Coolant should be mixed with water before adding it to the plastic container. If the coolant is not already mixed with water at a 50/50 ratio, (50 percent water/50 percent coolant) do so before adding. Coolant should always be mixed and not added as straight coolant, the water helps the coolant flow thru the cooling system and aids in helping the coolant remove heat from the engine during the cooling process.

What kind of coolant do I use in my 98 pontiac grand prix?


DEX-COOL® is an ethylene-glycol coolant that was developed to last for 150,000 miles (240,000 km), or 5 years, whichever occurs first. It is recommended that only DEX-COOL® be used when coolant is added or changed. It's a good idea to purchase a gallon container or two of DEX-COOL® from an authorized GM dealer so the correct antifreeze is always available. A 50/50 mixture of this ethylene-glycol coolant and water should be used, providing freezing protection down to -34°F (1°C), boiling protection to 265°F (265°C), and rust and corrosion protection for the system. A solution stronger than 70% antifreeze is not recommended and pure antifreeze will freeze at only -8°F (-22°C).

Why my motor over heat


There could be several problems with it overheating. 1. Low coolant level. Top off with recommended coolant. 2. Have the radiator cap pressure tested. A cap that cannot hold proper pressure can allow fluid to leak. 3. Spent coolant. When coolant breaks down, it cannot keep the engine cool properly. A coolant flush would be recommended. 4. A stuck thermostat. A stuck thermostat can impede the flow of coolant through the system. 5. Coolant leaks. It could be the radiator, water pump, thermostat housing, hoses, or freeze plugs. Have a pressure check done on the system. 6. Blown head gasket. When a vehicle overheats, it puts a strain on the engine and gaskets. Have a compression check done on each cylinder. These are some steps to take toward getting this issue resolved. Good luck.

What type of coolant should be put into the engine coolant cylinder


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.

1999-2000: 13.0 qts. (including 2.3 qts. for resevoir)

Radiator fans turn on intermittantly without engine on


The rad fan on this modle is ment to run when ever needed, even with the engine off. call or stop into your dealer to confirm and have them point out the coolant temp sensor, they are there for you and are willing to help. ask to talk to a tech.
