Type antifreeze for a 2006 Chrysler Town & Country?

if the coolant is red/orange in colour then it is the long life anti-freeze and this is the type you need to use. if its green in colour then its the regular type. as for brand it won`t really matter just don`t buy the recycled type of anti-freeze.

Not circulating

Hey Tyler,

Your posting does not indicate if you have a good clean mixture of antifreeze coolant in your heat & cool exchanger ( ie. radiator ), this valuable component of the vehicle coolant & heating system alway's need's a good supply of 50% water to 50% antifreeze which is under pressure and could hurt you or anyone standing too close to your vehice in question.

Purchase the anti-freeze in either full mixture (100%) or 50% water 50% anti-freeze just about anywhere out there with a vehicle repair isle.
Personally speaking I mix 50% water 50% anti-freeze since this is much cheaper than buying the already 50% water to 50% anti-freeze simply due to economic reasons.
After filling this radiator container, remember to alway's follow your vehicle manufacture's safety guidelines, remember there are many moving parts in the engine compartment that could hurt you or people standing around your vehicle while the engine is running.

Hope this helps!

If your coolant level is full the low coolant switch is probably faulty they are normaly just a float & the float might be stuck. & Coolant should be used all year round as it is not just anti freeze but is (Anti freeze, Anti boil, & acidity, alkalinity regulator.) It changes the freezing/boiling point (water freeze at o degrees centegrade & boil at 100 degrees but with glycol it changes this depending on what % glycol there is in the system. The acid/alkaline regulator is corosion inhibitor to prevent parts being eaten from the inside out (radiators, heater cores, welsh plugs etc..)

Can I replace my dex coolant with regular antifreeze? in my 1997 chevy malibu and how

they say you cant mix different coolants but you can go to auto-zone etc, and buy a cheaper anti-freeze for general motors products. its a 50/50 mix for all gm cars and can add this coolant to any brand of anti-freeze. its called universal type anti-freeze. to run a differant anti-freeze in it, you have to flush out complete engine and radiator because the dex-cool and the green stuff do not mix well and cause engine corrosion etc. dex-cool is reccomended for all chevy engines. good-day !

The coolant sensor light is on

The coolant sensor liight come on when the Anti-freeze get low. Just top off the ant-freeze and the light will go out. It is norrmal for anti-freeze level to go down but slow. Toping off once or twice a year is ok but anymore then that you really should check for leaks. Low anti-freeze will cause over heating. Over heating can wreak an engine.

What is the ratio of antifreeze to water in an 1989 honda civic?

The mixture of of anti-freeze/coolant to water should always be 50-50, or 50% anti-freeze/coolant and 50% water, and the mixture should not exceed 75-25 or 75% anti-freeze/coolant and 25% water. If the mixture is more that 75-25 then the anti-freeze/coolant will not function properly in the cooling system and it can actually cause the engine to overheat, and if the mixture is below 50-50 then the anti-freeze/coolant protection will be deminished.

In the last week i have filled the coolant reserve tank several times, total of 2 gallons of coolant, and yet the reservoir runs dry and requires more coolant. I cannot find any coolant leaking under the...

hi, if your 100% sure that their is no coolant leaking onto the floor then look inside the car where the drivers and passenger feet are if the floor is wet then this means the heater rad is leaking and needs replacing if its dry then this could be a more serious problem now what you need to do is check your oil pull the oil stick out and check for signs of water if water is present then it will look a grey color and this would mean head gasket failure if how ever the oil level is ok and the color is normal then this could indicate that the head gasket has gone and the coolant is being burned out with the engine gasses, you need to get a compression test done and possibly a sniff test to test the coolant for signs of gasses from the engine.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Can I use standard anti-freeze or must I use GM product?

Keep in mind that there are some things you wouldn't want to substitute on your car when it comes to fluids and maintenance but you should be safe to use an aftermarket anti-freeze. Most anti-freeze is a form of alcohol since the boiling and freezing points of alcohol is much higher and lower than plain tap water.

If it is a 6 cyl they are known for lower intake gasket failure. look by the drivers side near transmission that is where they leak. if it is leaking there it is about a $400.00 job to fix and unless you are qualified to do it you should go to a garage
