Depending on where you drive and what temperatures the car is driven in will determine the concentration of antifreeze to water. As a general rule premix, which is 50/50, is fine for most application. Different concentrations will change the freezing and boiling points of the antifreeze mixture, as well as, change the ability of the mixture giving off heat. A typical 50/50 mixture has a freezing point of about -35*F and boiling point of about 265*F.

What kind a coolant i need for my dodge caravan 2005 sxt 3.3

A 50/50 mix of Ethylene Glycol and distilled water is what you'd want. Brands like Prestone and Zerex are available premixed in that 50/50 ratio and available at any good auto parts store or Walmart. Prestone Extended Life Prediluted Antifreeze Coolant

How much antifreeze do I need to get before I flush out my cooling system?

If you are buying "full strength", i.e not premix, you will need half of the coolant systems full capacity listed in your owners manual. the remaining fluid should be plain water, preferably distilled. If you buy premix, you will need an amount equal to the systems capacity. Coolant is designed to provide maximum freeze/boil protection when mixed half and half with water. Confirm this with the tables you will normally find on the coolant packaging.

What kind of coolant does it take

Probabaly just regular antifreeze(green). Look at the color in the coolant reservoir. If its red, dexcool will work. if you want to make it easy on yourself, buy whats called Global coolant, its almost clear and mixes with all others. make sure you buy it premixed so you dont have to add water.

What kind of coolant is needed for a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

just go down to your local auto parts store and buy your basic antifreeze -- you can buy a premixed 50/50,, but depending on where you live and the temperatures,, I would suggest buying 100% antifreeze and adding water to it,, if you look on the back of the antifreeze bottle there will be a chart to determine the correct ratio mix for your areas temperature.

We have replaced the radiator recently and we need to add the antifreeze fluid. Need to know which kind of antifreeze fluid we should use and if needed to mixed with water and if so at what %

if the coolant looked red/pink/orange than it was dexcool and the new radiator should be filled with dexcool only. Most of the time you will need to mix it 50/50 with water. Sometimes it will come premixed and it will be labeled as premix.

If the old coolant was green than regular green coolant is what you need. Again you can sometimes find it premixed but if not it will need to be mixed 50/50 with water.

My truck was running hot and when i put my heater on it was blowing cold air then it got hot and then cold

more than likely with those symptoms you are low in coolant, you have sticking thermastat, a bad radiator cap not alowing the system to pressurise, or the worse case senerio is a blown head gasket. hope this helped
