4Liters should be very close. Just drain down the rad 4l. & replace with antifreeze & put a little in the overflow for balance. Good luck!

How do I flush water out and add antifreeze to my 2001 dodge intrepid


Technically speaking, the cooling system uses a 50-50 mix of coolant and water. You can buy coolant already mixed, or full strength.
There are hydrometers that you can buy to test the condition of the coolant. I would suggest draining the radiator and refilling with full strength, then test it. You would still have some water in the block and heater core to mix with the new coolant.

After driving when turned off radiator boils over


Check the richness of your anti-freeze.The ratio should be 50 antifreeze and 50 water or up to 60 antifreeze to 40 water.This will show a test value to prevent freezing down to a minimum of 30 below zero degrees F.
If that is okay, then you might have an electric fan operation problem. don-ohio

HOW TO BLEED THE RADIATOR ON A FORD TAURUS 2002


Warm the car up till the cooling fan comes on then about another 3 to 5 min. shut the engine off for about 10 min. keep repeating till the coolant flows. The upper radiator hose will get hot close to the radiator and the air from the fans is hot. Leave the radiator cap loose or off while doing this and keep the antifreeze full. Be very carefull antifreeze can go up to 230 degrees and servely burnt If you are getting air bubbles and the antifreez doesn't go down you have combustion getting into the cooling system. The most common reason for this is a blown head gasket.

check the bottom of the radiator for a drain plug. also, most auto parts stores sell drain kits that install a flush/drain valve onto a heater hose.

MY 1997 PONTIAC GRAD AM IS OVER HEATING AND I NEED TO NO WHAT THE RIGHT ANTIFREEZE TO PUT IN IT 3.1L V6

We replace it with:
ANY COLOR ANTIFREEZE
ALL MAKES ALL MODELS
of cars and light trucks
add to ANY color antifreeze
PRESTONE.

It's up to you. Ask before, but if you decide to change the type of coolant then:
If your intention is to add coolant only, then you need:
PRESTONE 50/50
PREDILUTED ANTIFREEZE/COOLANT

If your intention is to flush the RADIATOR (Cooling System), then you need:
Mix with
ANY COLOR ANTIFREEZE
ALL MAKES ALL MODELS
of cars and light trucks
add to ANY color antifrezze
PRESTONE
EXTENDED LIFE up to 150000/mile 5 year protection.
On the back you have to read directions:
Step 1 Drain. Step 2 Flush. Step 3 Fill.
Recommended to ad 30% volume distilled water to 70% volume Antifreeze. If you flush the system and rinse with water you must add only 30% water to the antifreeze. There is more water trapped inside the engine compartment, because the thermostat is closed. Make sure to have a coolant density tester. When you finish one of 5 balls must sink, that indicates that you reached 50/50 strength. That means 50% Prestone and 50% Water, which will provide to your car a -34F degree FREEZE-UP Protection , and +265F degree BOILOVER protection. Make sure to open bleeding valve to discharge air pockets from the cooling system. Add coolant.The next day,while engine is cold open the radiator cap, and test the strength of coolant. If it is not quite right, then siphon coolant from the radiator and add antifreeze, or distilled water as necessary.
Let the car to cool down overnight and start engine. The cooling system might be cold. Untwist the coolant bleeding nipple. If there will be a jet or stream of coolant, that means the water pump is working and is O.K. After replace the thermostat. If still your car overheats then it might be a bad cylinder head gasket.

How many gallons of antifreeze goes into my radiator?


If you are draining your radiator, or just need to add some, there are a couple of options. You can either buy antifreeze in a 50/50 premixed solution, or purchase one gallon of antifreeze and 1 gallon of distilled water (less than $1.00 at your local grocery store) and mix equaly in another container that way you have a proper mixture in your radiator. The 50/50 mixture comes in an orange color and the full strength comes in the traditional green color.
