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.

What is the sump capacity for a .4cyl diesel pregio van series 1.i drained it and put in 4 and a half litres of oil and the dip stick reads just over half/????

from what you say-- you put in 4.5 litres of oil and it is just over 1/2 but you took out 7 litres , that would be just about right as the other 2.5 litres should make it full on the dip stick
there would be a problem if you took out 10 litres of oil but 6 litres filled it to the full line on the dipstick

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./

Toyota Corolla 2003 CE. Car started overheating, Pulled over and steam was coming from engine. Found out radiator seemed to be leaking. poured antifreeze into radiator and heard liquid splashing on ground...

You may need to "burp" the system and get the air out. When car has completely cooled, take radiator a off, start car, let it warm up (but not overheat) and see if level drops. Add coolant/water mix to top it off. Never run straight antifreeze. At most a 50/50 mix of distilled water and antifreeze.
Air can get trapped in areas of the system when its been drained. Just monitor that temp and don't risk damaging the engine by overheating.

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.
