There are two things that you need to look at, one is antifreeze type, many newer cars use a red antifreeze and it cools better than the green, Also, look for air bleeds, usually little fittings that look like a grease fitting, or brake bleeder screw, AND have heater(s) on full hot when filling the cooling system. Pressure test and look for any leaks.

2003 Lincoln aviator that runs hot but appears to leak all the time


Darlene, the cooling system could now have air in it now, which may have to be bled out for cooling system to operate correctly, When you said it was leaking, ensure the leak was not internal to engine or you will have a lot bigger issue.

White smoke out the tailpipe,does not small like coolant


Could be raw fuel, if only on start up,not ATF

Check fuel trim with a professional scanner
& fuel pressure,& look at oxygen sensor data

I wouldn't use it, if it is fuel,you could hydraulic
the motor & bend a rod, as a liquid doesn't compress

Leaky injectors possibly

If so, I would mail them all away to be tested & cleaned off
the vehicle ( Ultra Sonic Cleaning) nothing else works

If some are bad, they will clean up some old ones & flow them
to match yours

A repair shop won't know what I'm even saying

Found rust like material in water system change radiator and water pump thermostat .flushed system numerious times car still runs hot and water is still a rusty mess.


You may have to flush the system again. Did you use a commercial flush such as Prestone Super Flush? Plain water won't remove the rust and sludge. The Dex-cool antifreeze that GM recommends for their cars is bad about forming a gummy sludge in the cooling system. It clogs radiators and heater cores. I would suggest another flush with the Prestone product. Follow the directions closely for best results. One thing that will help is. after you drain the radiator, refill with clear water and let the engine run until the coolant is circulating good, then drain it again. Do this three or four times. This will ensure that all the antifreeze has been removed from the engine block. When you refill the radiator, use a green antifreeze that is compatible with aluminum radiators and aluminum engine parts. Do not use Dex-cool. Dex-cool can also cause the intake gaskets to fail. Make sure the new thermostat is at least a 195degree unit and that it is installed correctly. you would be surprised how many thermostats get installed upside down. After refilling the radiator, leave the radiator cap off and let the engine run until the coolant is flowing. Keep adding antifreeze each time the coolant is pulled down into the radiator. Use full strength antifreeze because the water that is retained in the block will dilute it. A 50/50 mixture won't protect below freezing.

What type of antifreeze does it use


Prestone and a few other companies make an All-Makes product that is safe for mixing with all other coolants.

The ``special coolant`` that it says must be used is an Extended, or Long life, coolant (Note: Not Dex-Cool). The Prestone product name above would work perfectly, and if you want to save a little cash, buy it concentrated and just mix 50/50 with water.

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.

Do i need to put the prestone GM engine coolant into my 2008 dodge ram 4.7 liter or am i okay using prestone all makes all models formula?


yes u can use any prestone.

But i highly recommend draining all prestone out and running just regular green antifreeze
the prestone tends to collect more derbis and breaks down quicker which clogs passages and causes problems such as blown head gaskets (it was designed to be better than green antifreeze but in real life it worst ) ask any mechanic that dealt with the stuff and will tell u the same

Is it ok if i used Prestone 50/50 Prediluted Antifreeze/coolant for my 2001 chevy blazer other than dez cool? I did not mix the two i ve been using the Prestone since i had my blazer for about a year.


It's OK to use Prestone 50/50 Prediluted Antifreeze/coolant. But, it needs to be DEX COOL. There is a reason for it. The seals and the water pump in the cooling system are made to run with the DEX COOL. Anything like a non-compatible coolant will cause problems down the road. I wouldn't risk it. They do make 50/50 DEX COOL.
