It will need as much as it takes, which is impossible to tell depending on how you flushed it.
But your whole system takes more than 2 gallons, and since you want a 50/50 mix you know you will need more than one gallon of antifreeze. So you need to start by purchasing 2 gallons. If you have left over, it does not go bad. And if you do not quite have enough, you can probably add a little extra water because you probably did not flush all the antifreeze out.
Once you run it, then next time it will need more again after the heat bleeds the air out.

First make sure you put averything back together, hoses valves etc. then fill your radiator with antifreeze make sure is the recomended for that vehicle and 50/50, fill radiator all the way up and start your car and edd as much as it need, add antifreeze to the reservoir too and keep adding till radiator stays full. dont forget to bleed it,make sure the heater is working.
p.s.while adding antifreeze, turn your heat on hi speed.

How can i flush my clouged radiator on a 2003 kia sedona


flushing blocked radiator cores is not successful regardless of what cleaning agent is used --simple reason , if the water cannot flow through the cores ,it cannot flush out the blockage
Best answer for a fix is to replace with a new radiator and use the correct anti freeze-anti boil additive in the correct ratio at all times

Smell of coolant and smoking


smoke from exhaust could be cracked head or blown head gasket but normally when one of these two things happen it runs crappy if it runs at all smoke from under the hood you may have a pin hole in your radiator or hose or even heater core put some stop leak in it watch for puddle of anti-freeze under the hood and on the ground keep a close eye on your tempature gage and a close eye on you anti-freeze levels and dont add fluid when the motor is hot this will crack your heads good luck.

Engine warms well, heater fan blowing well, but very little heat comes into cab


It could be one of two things.
1. Bad thermostat. Your thermostat is pobably not opening when the engine warms up. Install a new thermostat and you should be OUT OF THE COLD. If not,
2. Your heating core and radiator is probably clogged. One way to solve this is. Flush out your radiator with radiator flush kit. Pease read your owners manual, (YOU NEED TO USE A SPECIAL TYPE OF ANTI FREEZE). If you use the the green color Presotne anti freeze, It will gradually corrode through the linings of your radiator. And the green color prestone anti freeze will blow out the radiator. So read your owners malual ( I beleive it says you have to use Dextron Anti Freeze ( Pink Color).. Replace your thermostat and flush out your radiator. Then refill your radiator with dextron anti freeze. Also make sure the anti freeze resivor is filled to the proper level.. Once you do all of this, YOU DEFFINITLY WILL BE IN HEAT.. YOU CAN DO THIS YOUR SELF ( iT WOULD TAKE ME NO MORE THAN 1 TO 2 HOURSFOR ME TO DO THIS IN MY DRIVEWAY) OR YOU CAN HAVE THIS DONE AT ANY QUICK LUBE LOCATIONS... HAPPY MOTORING

2003 Neon SXT Tranny Oil In Radiator


I'm not possitive but there is usually a vent tube on top of the transmission, may be possible that dirt or something is clogging it up. That would cause the tranny to build up pressure. But to blow the seal on a new radiator, I wouldn't imagine that. My opinion would be that the new radiator wasn't put together correctly. But just in case the vent tube did cause it to let go, check the vent. I hope that you find the problem. Best wishes.

Need to put antifreeze in the radiator of my dodge neon. Do I have to drain it first or is there a way to get antifreeze in it without draining it. And if I do have to drain it where is the plug?


The drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side. I see no reason to drain it all out unless you just want to change it. If you do our Neons take the orange radiator fluid Havoline "Dex-Cool" invented by Havoline. It has a very bad taste added to it to protect children and pets. I changed it at 74000 in my wife's 2003 Neon SXT using a 50/50 mix of Dex-Cool and distilled water to avoid any scaling residue.

Our Neons cannot use any other type as it will ruin the internals of your engine the coolant comes into contact with.
The anti freeze is to be changed at 100,000 miles. If your coolant reservoir tank (located in the engine compartment on the drivers side just under the windshield large white plastic bottle) is always filling up over time and spilling over you may need a new radiator cap.

The radiator cap lets some of the coolant out in to the reservoir tank as you drive and the coolant expands due to heat. When your radiator cools off a vacuum is created inside of your radiator at that time your radiator cap is to open it's valve and **** the coolant from the reservoir tank back into the radiator via the small hose that leads from just under your radiator cap to the reservoir tank.

Make sure the hose leading from just under your radiator cap to the reservoir tank has a tight seal at both ends as well as no leaks.

If your cap is not operating properly it will just keep letting coolant out and not letting the radiator **** it back in resulting low coolant level in the radiator.
