Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

I own a 2004 Cavalier and need to change the dex cool. I was told in the rad the drain plug was "one way" and the person who is helping me was unsure of how to remove it without damaging anything. Any suggestions? Would it be simpler to just replace the plug?

How do you bleed the air from the cooling system of a 1999 v6 pontiac grand am


Refilling Procedure




Notice: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. If coolant other than DEX-COOL?"¢ is added to the system, the engine coolant will require change sooner: at 50 000 km (30,000 miles) or 24 months.






  1. Close the radiator drain cock.


  2. If previously removed, install the engine block drain plugs.


  3. When installing the drain plugs, use pipe sealer GM P/N 12346004.




    Important: On vehicles equipped with the 3.4L engine, open the coolant air bleed valve. The coolant air bleed valve is located on the top of the thermostat bypass pipe/heater pipe assembly. Close the valve once a continuous stream of coolant is expelled from the valve.



  4. Fill the surge tank to the base of the filler neck.


  5. Start the engine with the pressure cap off. Run the engine until the upper radiator hose starts to get hot.


  6. If the coolant level in the surge tank is low, add the proper mix of coolant until the level reaches the full cold line.



  7. Important: After servicing the cooling system, and if the vehicle is equipped with an intermittent low coolant light, an occasional low coolant light may be encountered during some extreme driving maneuvers. This complaint should be eliminated by removing the surge tank cap and adding coolant to a level just at or above the full cold line when the system is cold.



  8. Install the cap onto the tank with hand tight pressure.



Recycling Procedure




Important: Dispose of used coolant in a proper fashion, such as in a used coolant holding tank. Never pour used coolant down the drain. Ethylene glycol antifreeze is a very toxic chemical. Disposing of ethylene glycol antifreeze into the sewer system is both illegal and ecologically unsound.



There is currently no approved method for recycling used DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant into new DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant can be recycled into new conventional coolant. Consult local listings for coolant recycling facilities in your area.

How to drain cooling system


First drain the radiator. Next leave the rad drain open and remove the heater core hose from the top of the rad by the filler cap. plug the hole in the rad where the heater hose was and use an air gun to inject air into the cooling system via the disconnected heater hose. Be sure to use short spurts so that you so not over pressure the system. This will drain the majority of the engine and the coolant will come out in a hurry. Hope this helps.

How do you change antfreeze


Dude you should have a drain plug on th bottom of the radiator. Remove and drain it out, run water through the system for a good ten minutes. Then reinstall drain plug and fill your cooling system with the correct antifreeze. You fill canister should be on the left side of the car and you should use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or Havoline DEX-COOL coolant.
