How to Fill Coolant

If the coolant system has been flushed, first add 100 percent ethylene glycol in

the amount listed for the appropriate engine application. Then slowly add clean

water to the system until the level of the coolant mixture has reached the base-of

the radiator neck. Wait for two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant

mixture. add clean water if necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to the

base of the radiator neck

When refilling the engine cooling system, add three engine coolant supplement

sealant pellets, GM RN 3634621 or equivalent, and GM approved new Ethylene

Glycol Coolant DEX-COOL GM RN 9985809.

If the cooling system is being refilled ONLY (no flush), a 50 percent ethylene

glycol and 50 percent clean water mixture should be used to fill the system. Fill

the system until the level of the 50150 mixture has reached the base of the radiator

neck. Wait two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant mixture. add a 50/50

ethylene glycol water mixture as necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to

the base of the radiator neck.

Install the radiator cap making certain the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

Close all air bleeds. DO NOT over torque the air bleed valve. The air bleed valve is

made out of brass.

Fill the coolant reservoir with a 50 percent ethylene glycol and a 50 percent clean

water coolant mixture. The proper amount of this mixture to be installed into the

coolant reservoir is listed below:

Add 0.65 liters (0.68 quarts) of a 5010 mixture of ethylene glycol and clean water

to the coolant recovery reservoir.

CAUTION: The low coolant indicator lamp may come on after this procedure. After

operating the vehicle so that the engine heats up and cools down three times. if at

any time the "TEMP' warning indicator comes on. Immediate action is required.

Air bleed vent is at the thermostat house

Thank you for using

Do I need special tools to change water pump on 2005 cadillac cts

  1. You'll need a tool to release the tension on the serpentine belt and when you need to put the belt back on. Regular standard socket wrenches will suffice for the rest.

Can I damage my 1997 mercedes benz E320 by putting water 8n the radiator

You can put just water in the radiator if it is an emergency and you are in a pinch. These vehicles and their cooling systems require special coolant to fight corrossion and to lubricate the water pump and shouldn't be without for any extended period of time. Coolant will also raise the boiling point and keep the engine running cooler as well as protect from any type of freezing

Chrysler makes their own special brand but if you check with a parts store, they can tell you what's safe to use. I top off my 2007 Town and ccountry with Prestone - the type that mixes with any coolant. Make sure you put 1/2 water and 1/2 coolant in when you refill.

It says on top of the motor "Notice there is a special coolant to put in this car." What do i put in it and where? In the radiator or in the coolant jug?

It probably requires dexron which is different than regular antifreeze. Most cars now are filled by putting it in the coolant tank/jug. If you see a hot and cold indicator on the tank put it in the tank.
