Take off the radiator cap and fill the rad with antifreeze. start the montor and keep watching the level of the antifreeze and keep adding as necessary. when the termostat opens you sould shee a sudden drop in level.... keep adding antifreeze. squeezing the upper rad hose will help remove air bubbles. BE EXTREMELY CARE OF THE FAN AND OTHER MOVING PARTS TO PREVENT INJURY. after you are satisfied that you have added enough fluid put the rad cap back on. fill the overflow tank to the leven it indicates.... take it for a drive and let it cool down. open the rad cap and top of the fluid if necessay.

Where do I fill coolant?


Generally now there is a plastic overflow tank, where you do this, and not into the radiator top neck. The cap there is usually not meant to be routinely removed. There will be a hose about 1/2" diameter from the side of the radiator top neck to the overflow/filler tank. Just follow that.

Draining radiator


Terrific question!
First, fill the radiator with coolant, do not fill to the top, just fill about halfway up in the tank.
Start the engine and turn on the heater full blast.
Probably would be good to give it some gas to about a medium idle and hold it there, might require 2 people.
Very carefully watch the level in the tank.
DO NOT put your face over the hole. When the thermostat opens , the coolant will drop quickly.
Try to keep adding coolant as that happens.
After about 5 minutes you should be ready to go.
The way you will know is the heater is blowing hot air.
Now fill it up and replace our cap.
Be Blessed.

Cooling system


Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

How to bleed cooling system on 1995 windstar with 3.8


Use a floor jack and raise the car up as high as possible, fill the coolant recovery tank as full as possible and run the engine until it reaches the high end of normal temperature, shut it down and run cols water war over the radiator, the air will self bleed and coolant will be pulled into the radiator as it cools to fill the void. The radiator cap is left on during this procedure.

The radiator was emptied out and i want to add antifreeze and water? there are 2 areas that say antifreeze goes here?


  • One is the radiator and the other is an overflow tank. Sometimes anti freeze will back pressure a bit and need somewhere to go and other times the antifreeze gets low in the radiator. That is the purpose of the radiator.
  • Put the antifreeze in the radiator fist and then add to the reservoir. Pay attention to the cold/hot level fill on the overfill tank.
  • You need to find out where all that antifreeze went to if the radiator was empth. Pull the dipstick and look for a chocolate milk look on the oil. This would be a head gasket or a cracked head.
  • Otherwise keep an eye out for a leak and repair it soon.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
