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.

SOURCE: I just flushed my radiator

if you have air conditioning the capacity of your radiator is 24.8 quarts, without A/C it is 27.5. For maximum protection a 50% antifreeze to water is recommended. This of course depends on where you live or plan to drive.

Did you remove the radiator cap and you should also make sure the engine is hot enough for the thermostat to be open. But do be careful when you open the petcock so as not to burn yourself as the liquid will be very hot.

Im trying to replace my coolant and I'm not sure how much to put in. It's the 4.3 L v6 in a 1988 GMC c1500

Don't know the exact amount but around 2-2 and a half gallon. Do this use one gallon straight antifreeze and one gallon water run engine for a few minutes then turn off. Check level and top off radiator. Add appropriate level to side tank

1991 Cadillac Fleetwood. The heater was working on passenger side but not that warm. Added antifreeze. Seems to be leaking it. Keep adding. gone thru 2 gallons. How do i get heat.

If you've added two gallons of antifreeze, you need to find out where it's going. Make sure the antifreeze you are adding is diluted with water in a 50/50 solution. Pure antifreeze has little freeze protection and boils quickly. If there is no visible leak, check your oil for coolant contamination. Fill the radiator and leave the radiator cap off. Put the heater controls on hottest setting, but do not turn the heater on. Start the engine and watch the coolant. If the coolant level drops, add more to full. If the coolant is flowing thru the radiator when you first start the engine, the thermostat is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the water is not flowing, then keep an eye on it and wait for the thermostat to open. Add antifreeze to keep the radiator full. Look for air bubbles or lots of foaming in the coolant. That would indicate a blown head gasket and the reason you are losing antifreeze. If there's no bubbles, and the coolant level stays full, put the radiator cap back on and see if the heater is working better.

I am flushing my radiator today, and need to know how much anti freeze my car should need. it is a 2003 Dodge neon SE.

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.

Before to refill, you must check any clogged on the radiator, hose and status of thermostat.
