When you top up the radiator you should only use antifreeze as it keeps the mixture right,use a universal type antifreeze,so you dont have any mix problems.

How to add antifreeze 2002 dodge intrepid


Open the container of antifreeze. Using a separate EMPTY gallon-size container, pour out HALF of the contents into the empty container, making sure not to spill any. Now, FILL the newly filled container with tap water. Fill the rest of the antifreeze with water, also. Now, you are ready to add antifreeze to your vehicle! Simply locate the radiator cap, (Don't touch it if it's hot!!) and unscrew it. Pour the desired amount of your mixed antifreeze into the radiator. Remember not to do this without proper knowledge!

Where do i add water to my radiator


You don't add it to the radiator , you add it to the plastic surge tank !
Fill the cooling system through the surge tank with a mixture of ethylene glycol antifreeze and water. The mixture must be at least 50 percent antifreeze, but not more than 60 percent antifreeze for cold weather operation. Fill the surge tank to the specified MAX fill mark on the outside of the tank.

Coolant is a rusty milkshake consistency


if you do not see any obvious leaks under the car and you are still adding water to it, you might have a cracked head gasket which is causing coolant to go into cylinders. If this is the case, this can cause more problems.

What type of antifreeze should i use


I myself as a mechanic, prefer Prestone freeze. You can get it almost anywhere. AT for example K-mart it runs about 12 bucks. It is 50/50 mixture, which means you do not have to add water, it is already ready to poor and diluted to right mixture. However, at auto parts stores like Auto Zone, they also have a tester to check the strength level of it. You want to make sure that the mixture or ration of water to antifreeze is correct, for a couple reasons. If it not proper mixture of water and antifreeze, could cause break down of internal parts, which could over time, cause damage to radiator, hoses, thermostat etc.... So, best thing to do, after adding or before adding any antifreeze have it tested with a cheap tester they sell, and they can explain to you what the ratio should be for your car and size of radiator. I hope this helps. Mike

I have a 1997 chevy lumina what kind of antifreeze should i use?


The dealer recommend GM Dex Cool Antifreeze.
But there are complaint against this type of coolant.
http://www.stevesnovasite.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-128547.html
In GM cars we replace Dex Cool with Prestone green coolant.
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:
Mix with
ANY COLOR ANTIFREEZE
ALL MAKES ALL MODELS
of cars and light trucks
add to ANY color antifreeze
PRESTONE
50/50
PREDILUTED ANTIFREEZE/COOLANT
EXTENDED LIFE up to 150000/mile 5 year protection.
DO NOT ADD WATER.

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% to 50% volume, distilled water. 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.The next day,with a cooled engine open radiator cap, and test the strength of coolant. If not quite right, then siphon coolant from the radiator and add antifreeze, or distilled water as necessary.
Make sure to disposal the used coolant properly.

Can I recharge the coolant in a 2006 Kia Sedona myself?


If you are talking about the radiator coolant then the best way is to drain old out, flush the system thoroughly then add 50/50 antifreeze back.

What antifreez tiburon 2000 need cuz i change but he go black


Once you have located the overflow tank check to see if it has any antifreeze in it. You will be able to see it without taking the lid off and It is IMPORTANT to understand that if your engine has not been running for a while that the coolant level should be at the "COLD" level and if you are looking at it while the engine is warm or you drove the vehicle shortly before checking, it should then be at the "HOT" level.

Most likely, if there is fluid in the tank, you do not need to add any. Once you determine that you need to add more antifreeze, simply add it to the overflow tank. You do not need to add it directly into the radiator. NEVER REMOVE THE RADIATOR CAP WHEN ENGINE IS WARM, YOU MAY INJURE YOURSELF! When adding antifreeze, it is very important that you use the correct antifreeze! There are brands out there that you can use for all makes and models. Those should only be used when you are adding or "topping off" the antifreeze.

Please note that you can damage your engine if the wrong coolant is used! So I strongly suggest that you go to your local auto parts store and they will make sure that you get the correct antifreeze. You can also find this information in your owners manual. Make sure that you use the correct mixture, .The 50-50 pre-mixed antifreeze comes with water already in it so you don't have to add water. Good Luck.!
