After I added coolant to 91 chevy lumina the low coolant light will not go of I wonder why


When filling the coolant system you need to have the car running with radiator cap off and you can also burp the coolant hose while filling the system to remove any air. The system may be full for a while until thermostat opens and sucks the coolant out of radiator which is the perfect time to add more to top it off.

Disconnecting your negative battery cable for 10 minutes will reset the computer and shut off the light.

What kind of antifreeze does my chevy lumina need


There are two kinds of coolant that can be found in this car. Look to see what color it is, either pink or green. It came stock with Dexcool antifreeze. This is a pink colored antifreeze made for aluminum engines. If it is green DO NOT put pink in there. NEVER mix pink and green coolants together. There is no differences among the green coolants. All will work but some are better than others. Also there are 50/50 ready-to-use coolant gal. containers. This has water already added in the coolant. If you get one that does not have water added you will need to add water. These are usually better for your buck.

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.
