Looks like somebody put a DEEPWELL water in your radiator to top it up! Drain the entire coolant in your cooling system( w/ ur heater on) and put a clean water, run the engine for a couple of minutes and drain it out! Do that 3 times till the water you drain comes out CLEAR! Put a new ANTiFREEZE coolant! Taaah!

2003 Chrysler Sebring my antifreeze is brown and muddy looking


Yes it looks nasty you need to have your cooling system flushed this is something that I would recommend letting a shop handle for you they will put the right coolant in and it can be tricky to properly flush the whole system out less than 100 bucks outside a dealership

My antifreeze keeps turning brown and full of sludge. Why is this happening?


most probably a failed/split transmission cooler in the radiator tank
If that is the case , the fix is a new radiator and a chemical flush of the radiator
get quotes from an accredited radiator shop after getting a proper diagnosis of the fault

I have a 99 Chrysler 300m I recently noticed that in my back up antifreeze container its full of thick brown goo stuff what can it be.??


I would assume you bought the vehicle used & the
previous owner had problems & loaded up the coolant
system with sealer

If there was an issue then it should have been diagnosed
& properly repaired eg: new radiator,heater core,etc,whatever
was the issue at the time

I would take out the radiator & have it cleaned at a radiator
shop. hose out the engine block,remove & clean the overflow
bottle where you see the brown stuff

Also,you will need to remove the heater hoses at the core
end & somehow clean that out.

New thermostat if the even works well anymore

Lots of work to do & it will ONLY be done correctly
or at all if you do it yourself,no shop will care

Antifreez is thick brown


you have oil in the cooling system. Check head gasket first then warpage of head then for cracks in head and/or block. This could turn ugly as far as $$ amount. also a job for experienced mechanics.

I noticed that when i put anti freeze and water in their is this brown milky stuff


the brown milky stuff is rust and you have mixed two different types of antifreeze together it formed a reaction,you will need to do a complete flush and top up with the correct antifreeze for your engine asap.DO NOT MIX ETHYLENE GLYCOL WITH ANY OTHER TYPE OF ANTIFREEZE..........

1995 Oldsmobile over heats How do I fix it?


CHECK H2O PUMP AND SEE IF IT IS NOISY
CHECK TOP & BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES
OPEN RADIATOR & CK FLUID LEVEL ANTIFREEZE - GREEN NOW BROWN

ANY DOUBTS - FLUSH THE RADIATOR REFILL ANTIFREEZE..

NOW IF ALL THAT LOOKS GOOD..
YOU MAY HAVE A STUCK THERMOSTAT
OR AT WORST CLOGGED RADIATOR..

NOW THE WORST.. YOU MAY HAVE A CRACKED HEAD SO PULL OUT THE OIL DIP STICK AND SEE IF YOU HAVE H2O IN THE OIL...

IF SO... YOU ARE IN BIGGER TROUBLE HOWEVER YOU MAY SIMPLY A HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET.. OK THATS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR A .
START. GOOD LUCK!
