Through the expansion tank filler, you will need to drain some fluid off first.

SOURCE: Adding antifreeze to 2003 dodge dakota sxt

normaly you add to the plastic res , but lets make sure its full , so when it is cold the engine then open the radiator cap the metal one slowly and first top it off then close cap all the way and fill plastic res to the cold fill line. but usualy you just make sure the plastic tank is either full to the hot line or cold line , which is when the engine is hot or cold. but it is also good to check both .

SOURCE: Low coolant light is still on after adding coolant.

What happens is the low coolant sensor is at the bottom of the fill bottle and all the dirt and grime get on it and it will not sense the coolant.You can usually tap on the bottle where the coolant sensor is and the light will go off or just replace it.It will either be on the bottom of the over flow bottle or in the radiator tank where the cap is.About 5 or 6 inches down.Hope this helps.Good luck.

How to add antifreeze 2002 dodge intrepid


Open the container of antifreeze. Using a separate EMPTY gallon-size container, pour out HALF of the contents into the empty container, making sure not to spill any. Now, FILL the newly filled container with tap water. Fill the rest of the antifreeze with water, also. Now, you are ready to add antifreeze to your vehicle! Simply locate the radiator cap, (Don't touch it if it's hot!!) and unscrew it. Pour the desired amount of your mixed antifreeze into the radiator. Remember not to do this without proper knowledge!

COOLANT LEAVELS HOW TO CHECK


Smokes out of tailpipe? You added antifreeze to the coolant reservoir? Did you try taking off the radiator cap and see if it is full? Do this with engine cool. Was the engine ran low on coolant? Bleeders may need to be opened slightly on each end of the engine to bleed out air in system. If coolant is full and bleeders are bled out and it continues to smoke out of exhaust then the head gaskets are probably bad.

Car is running hot added coolant runs fine for a while today I was adding coolant to the reserve tank and saw a hose that is loose but can't find where it should be connected. When adding coolant it...


  • There are two hoses on an Antifreeze reservoir tank.
  • One is to allow escape in case of unexpected back pressure or overfill of the reservoir.
  • The other will be a hose that clamps on to the radiator right below the cap on a little spout coming off the fill neck of the radiator. This hose is the actual path the antifreeze takes when the radiator is low pressure pulls the antifreeze out of the reservoir to use.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

1991 Cadillac Fleetwood. The heater was working on passenger side but not that warm. Added antifreeze. Seems to be leaking it. Keep adding. gone thru 2 gallons. How do i get heat.


If you've added two gallons of antifreeze, you need to find out where it's going. Make sure the antifreeze you are adding is diluted with water in a 50/50 solution. Pure antifreeze has little freeze protection and boils quickly. If there is no visible leak, check your oil for coolant contamination. Fill the radiator and leave the radiator cap off. Put the heater controls on hottest setting, but do not turn the heater on. Start the engine and watch the coolant. If the coolant level drops, add more to full. If the coolant is flowing thru the radiator when you first start the engine, the thermostat is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the water is not flowing, then keep an eye on it and wait for the thermostat to open. Add antifreeze to keep the radiator full. Look for air bubbles or lots of foaming in the coolant. That would indicate a blown head gasket and the reason you are losing antifreeze. If there's no bubbles, and the coolant level stays full, put the radiator cap back on and see if the heater is working better.

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.

I HAVE A 2001 RANGE ROVER HSE THAT IS OVERHEATING. WHERE DO I ADD ANTIFREEZE? THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IT HAS OVERHEATED IN THE LAST 6MONTHS. LAST TIME A MECHANIC SAID IT DIDN'T HAVE ANY ANTIFREEZE SO HE...


Most vehicle Mfg.'s do not want you to access the radiator, so they put in overflow tanks.
You can add coolant there. You will find it under the hood next to the interior fender.
Only check or add coolant when the engine is cool.
I would start looking for a coolant leak. Vehicles are not supposed to leak or lose their coolant.
Check for green coolant spots on the ground where you park your vehicle.
Please let me know what you find.

Is the 'low coolant' light a danger?


It is only a danger if you run critically low as you run the risk of overheating your engine which can cause you a myriad of problems.

Take a couple minutes and stop by an anuto parts store, pick up a gallon and add it with water to the coolant reservoir.

I always say better safe than sorry.

Kee p an eye on the reservoir. If it starts to go down, you've got a coolant leak you should take care of.

Low coolant light, temp normal


try adding it via the reservoir. make sure you have a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze. If you want to cheat, cheat on the side of more antifreeze than water. Look for a leak in the hoses and water pump to find out if she has a larger problem that is causing the loss of coolant. look for drips under the car.
