Check oil level-if creamy, whitish brown, coolant is leaking into oil- could be head gasket, possible crack somewhere-have it pressure tested for leaks

Im trying to replace my coolant and I'm not sure how much to put in. It's the 4.3 L v6 in a 1988 GMC c1500


Don't know the exact amount but around 2-2 and a half gallon. Do this use one gallon straight antifreeze and one gallon water run engine for a few minutes then turn off. Check level and top off radiator. Add appropriate level to side tank

2001 Monte Carlo. Overheating and heater blowing cold air. Already replaced intake Gaskets, cap, Thermstat, had coolant in in oil before intake gaskets. Oil is clean now. It seems to be loosing coolant....


Park the car uphill, take cap off radiator, start car, fill radiator, let it warm up until thermostat opens, bleed air out, fill to the neck of the radiator and watch for bubbles coming up. Once you have bled the air, if gas continues to come out, you have a blown head gasket. Also check the exhaust for excess moisture and the smell of coolant. You may be able to determine which gasket is bad by looking at the plugs and/or running a compression test. Let me know if you have more questions.

How to change/flush coolant on a 2003 jetta


Slap on those vinyl gloves because the ethylene glycol in antifreeze can cause skin damage - however we recommend this because the antifreeze feels like engine oil.With your catch pan in place, remove the radiator drain plug and collect all old coolant. Immediately dispose of the coolant as required by environmental laws - if you are to surrender the old coolant at a waste management facility, be sure you use containers which can be properly sealed to avoid spillage, etc.To expedite the draining process, remove your radiator fill cap to allow air to enter the system.
Also be sure to remove all coolant from your radiator reservoir. We suggest you use the gravity siphon trick - just be sure not to ingest any coolant.

Watch the old coolant as it exits the system - this will give you a good idea of your vehicle's cooling system condition.If you see metal flakes, oily surface, white flakes, etc .. you can make a diagnosis of your engine's coolant system.
Essentially, if you see anything but coolant and some very minor debris, it can indicate the early signs of cooling system failure.When all coolant has been drained from the radiator, replace the radiator drain plug and then fill the system with plain tap water to dilute remaining antifreeze in the engine block.
With the cooling system refilled with tap water, replace the radiator fill cap and run the engine allowing it to reach operating temperature.When the engine's cooling fan turns on, it is an indication that the vehicle's thermostat has opened, allowing the freshly added water to circulate through the engine thus diluting the remaining coolant. Allow the engine to run for a few minutes before shutting it off.
At this point, you can either wait until the engine cools off, or take fate in your own hands and continue the flushing process.Repeat the draining process being sure to once again collect and dispose of all waste coolant.
At this point, if you have opted to purchase a radiator flush kit, you should refill the cooling system with tap water and add the caustic fluid as directed.
Run the engine for as long as the radiator flush kit calls for (usually less than 10 minutes).

Once again, drain the cooling system, collecting all waste fluid. This is the last time you will be required to collect engine coolant during this process.Now that the cooling system is empty, replace the radiator drain plug and refill the cooling system with distilled water only. The reason that you should only use distilled water at this point is to avoid mineral deposits which will deteriorate your cooling system over time.
Once the cooling system has been completely filled, start the engine to allow the water to circulate. Once again remove the radiator drain plug. As the engine runs, pour fresh distilled water into the radiator fill hole at the same rate that it exits the system.Continue this process until the water being drained from the radiator appears to be clear and free of debris. Once you are satisfied with the drain water's appearance, stop the engine and allow all remaining water to drain out.Replace the radiator drain plug and prepare to mix your distilled water and coolant.
Be sure to mix your coolant to the ratio recommended by your manufacturer. In most cases, the ratio is 50% distilled water and 50% coolant.
As a tip, mix the coolant and water in a third container being sure to observe the proper ratio.As you mix your water and coolant, use your hydrometer to measure the specific gravity - this will give you a good idea of whether or not you are mixing the coolant and water properly.
Once you have mixed enough coolant and water to fill your engine's coolant system entirely, grab a funnel and place it in the radiator fill hole.Fill your radiator at a rate of no more than:
{ 1 L/min. \ 1.1 US qt./min. \ 0.9 Imp. qt./min. }.
Continue the filling process until the coolant reaches the bottom of the fill neck. Now fill the radiator reservoir to the full mark.
With the radiator fill cap still off, start the car and allow it to idle. As the engine runs, continue to add coolant as air escapes the engine and cooling system.As you top up the radiator, be sure to "burp" the cooling system by firmly squeezing the radiator hoses (both upper and lower). Continue to squeeze and release the hoses to help push any errant air bubbles out of the system.
Once you are unable to fill the radiator any further, replace the radiator fill cap and stop the engine - you are finished.

How do you change a water pump?


1)Drain the coolant:
2)Remove the shroud: 7-10 mm bolts
3)Remove the fan and clutch: There is no need to separate the fan from the clutch. The whole thing threads on to the end of the water pump. I don't know the size, because rather than break out all my wrenches, I just grabbed an 18 inch crescent wrench. Place the wrench on the nut and tap loose with a hammer. the tapping will break it loose. You have to tap it, if you just try to loosen it, the belt won't hold it and the whole thing will turn. After it breaks loose just spin it off.
4)Break loose the bolts holding the pulley on: 4- 13 mm or 1/2" bolts Just break them loose, don't remove them
5) Remove the serpentine belt
6) Remove the pulley: Finish removing the bolts holding the pulley and remove the pulley
7) Disconnect the hoses
8) Remove the old pump: 4-14 mm or 9/16" bolts
9) Clean the surface: Remove all traces of the old gasket.
10) Install new pump: Apply a bead of blue permatex around the holes on both sides of the gaskets, put them on the pump and insert the bolts through the holes to hold the gaskets in place. Carefully lower the pump in to position. Thread the bolts into the block and snug them. Then remove the bolts one at a time, add the permatex to the threads, and then reinsert. (only do one at a time so that the pump doesn't shift and disturb the mating surfaces) Then tighten all the bolts.
11) Reinstall everything in reverse.
There will be a lot of air trapped in the system, so after you fill it, get the engine to operating temperature, shut it off, let it cool, then add more. The air trapped in the system can cause your engine to over heat if left unattended. I suggest filling the system with water only and run it like that for a day or two just to make sure there are no leaks. That way you don't waste your antifreeze if you have to do further repairs. 
Good luck and hope this helps.

All fluids, tires, etc, checked out.


The check engine light doesn't monitor those things, it's an emissions warning. monitors a host of things that are emissions related. You need to have it checked by a technician. The most common cause is a loose (or defective) gas cap. Make sure it clicks when you fill up. As for being 1/4 qt low on oil, don't add that small of an amount. Only add if it's a full quart low. If you check it soon after the engine has been running it'll show low because there's still a lot of oil upstairs in the engine. The dipstick measures what's down low in the oil pan. Also don't add anything to the radiator; only add to the overflow jar. It's marked high and low; those are actually temperature dependent marks, it should be at the high mark when the engine is warm and low when the engine is cold. Coolant expands and contracts with temperature. Don't add straight H2O either; that should be 50-50 coolant/water. They'll do that when you get the oil changed.
