The cooling system in your vehicle is filled with DEX-COOL engine coolant. This coolant is designed to remain in your vehicle for 5 years or 150,000 miles (240 000 km), whichever occurs first, if you add only DEX-COOL extended life coolant.

A 50/50 mixture of clean, drinkable water (if the water in your area is of poor quality, it is recommended you use distilled or de-ionized water) and DEX-COOL coolant will:

  • Give freezing protection down to -34°F (-37°C).
  • Give boiling protection up to 265°F (129°C).
  • Protect against rust and corrosion.
  • Help keep the proper engine temperature.
  • Let the warning lights and gauges work as they should.
Hope this information helps

After replacing the fan clutch and water pump do i have to reprogram the computer on a 2003 gmc envoy?

No! there is nothing to reprogram. The sensors in the coolant system and the temp sensor for the fans dont need to have anything done to them. If you are not getting any check engine light, you are good.

I am having problen with my 2003 GMC Envoy. The scanner show the following "code 128", what this mean.

This code indicates that the coolant has not reached operating temperature, this is usually caused by a stuck open thermostat.
