John, I wouldn't use a 50/50 aintifreeze mix, I would put atleast one full gallon(regular full size bottle) of regular antifreeze in your car and add the rest water until it is full under operating temp. then take it to a local shop and ask them to test the antifreeze freeze level, it should be ok . that is what I run here in Texas and have run the same in colder climates as Indiana and michigan. I say this because if you drained the block out, and add a 50/50 mix and then add water to it, you will dilute the solution even more so and it will NOT be ok when winter comes, it will freeze in your engine block and might crack the block.

1997 avalon how much antifreeze it takes to fill?


no man can answer that, there is a dry system spec, that you will NEVER achieve until you install a new engine.
engine size not even stated.!! ill guess.
9.8 QUARTS fro 1MZ-FE engine.

my guess, this is first time, doing this?

buy 50% premix, and stop when full?
or mix 50 % in a bucket,
  1. put 1gal in a bucket and at 1gallon of pure AF
  2. bingo 50% in bucket
  3. pour in to rad. burp system.
  4. repeat 1 and 3 till full.
on my 2 v6 engines, that hold about 15 quarts (non,toy)
i can not get the last 5 quarts out of the block , (block drains covered
by engine mounts.
(i measured my drained output carefully)
10 quarts cam out , (its not a Toyota , its a JEEP )
so i flushed the engine block with fresh water.
so now its, 5 quarts of fresh, water there (i do that so no craap remains the block or old wrong coolant etc..)
then i close up and put in 1 gallon of pure AF.
i now am close to 50% in the block. 4/5 is close enough.
and add 50% mix to top off.
i have a fancy , gauge that measures % , and make sure im at full protection, 50% at end and next day.

thats how i do it..... and done so for 50 years. im retired.
in a shop , it's a fancy machine that does it all.

some engines drain 100% others dont
the 1st time measure output if not 9.8 quarts. bingo, do the math./

Spec's on coolant capacity for 1998 FORD EXPEDITION


I drained my system out and ran a water nozzle into the coolant jug. this will help get any slime/grime out. They make a coolant cleaner you can use. I rushed plain water through until it came out white. But while I did this i had my engine running to circulate the water at a hot temp to loosen up other grime. leave hose in for 5 min while water is pushed through. go cut car off and let it drain for 2-3 minutes. plug your drain hole and put in Antifreeze not the 50/50. Pour in the whold bottle and rest with water. 1 gallon of antifreeze and fill with water.

On the 2005 malibu, where is the radiator? And what substance do i need to put in there? It says cooliant but is that the same thing as water?


The coolant can be found at most stores that sells automotive products. You will need a 50/50 mix of water and coolant. If you had drained you old coolant you can purchase premixed cooland were no water is added. I would purchase two gallons of cooland for you vehicle and change the thermostat as well

How much more oil do I add when changing the filter as well?


Basically depending if the car is completly drained of oil then you would need the almost extra 1ltr of oil, the engine would retain a certain amount of oil in the internal parts, i'e hydrolic tappets etc, thus they say up to 1 ltr,
basically fill 3.8ltrs run the engine for a min, then check dipstick and top up as ness.

If you have the 4afe engine, normally you need to check the idle control valve if it needs cleaning. Check also the timing of the car.

Engine coolant


you need maybe 1+1/2 gallon of distilled water;NOT TAP WATER and 1 gallon of Mazda Coolant; NOT 50/50 mix..

((WHEN THE ENGINE/COOLANT IS COOL>>VERY IMPORTANT!!!))

1.from the radiator, remove the drain plug, let it drain. for faster drain, also remove the resevoir cap.

2.when empty, put drain plug back on refill the resevior with the distilled water until full.

3.with the resevior cap off start engine with heat settings on Hi, until the coolant temp guage begin to rise or when thermostat opens. turn off engine.

4. repeat steps 1-3 until only clear water drains.

5.make sure drain plug is in, refill resevior with Mazda coolant til about half way (in case there's any expansion), do not put cap on yet, let the air bleed. start engine, let it run for 5 min.

6. accelerate in park/neutral to 2500RPM's (DO NOT drive yet) to help bleed the air keep an eye on coolant level because you will have to top it off.

7.check level as temp reaches normal; half point as usual. put resevior cap on drive around the block and check level again. make sure coolant is on the proper level; "F" or "MAX"...of course when the engine cools it will be below, but while the temp is normal it should be on the proper level.
