Question about Chevrolet Impala
It gets put into solution, at about 1 quart per cylinder and the balance water. Another easy way is to bi YEARLY flush your cooling system at a lube shop. They properly capture and dispose of the old fluid. And they run clean new in until they get clean new out of your system...and all at the correct mixture.
Newer cars use red antifreeze. It actually cools better, and you need to stick with what your year is supposed to have. The red stuff is supposed to go longer, but it cakes up all around and should be much more agressively flushed and replenished.

Use specific antifreeze for your car.
Chrysler uses MOPAR, GM uses Gm antifreeze, and so on.
Use 50/50 you are adding coolant.
Check the strength of coolant with a tester.
Te freezing point ave to be at least -34F degree.
If using a tester with 5 balls one ball must go down.

Tips for a great answer:
White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
