I have to say I've never heard that. I've seen it freeze when not enough in an radiator. The best way to do this is, just drain the radiator, and fill with plain water, just run the car for about 10 minutes to let the thermostat to open, and circulate through the engine. Drain it again, best way on this time, is remove the bottom hose( When was the last time you changed the hoses? should every 3 years). Re-hook the hose, and use the anti-free of your choice. I use an earth friendly coolant from Auto Zone, but that's my choice. Just follow the directions on the jug( not all are the same). You should have no problems. Hope this helps

How do I flush water out and add antifreeze to my 2001 dodge intrepid

Technically speaking, the cooling system uses a 50-50 mix of coolant and water. You can buy coolant already mixed, or full strength.
There are hydrometers that you can buy to test the condition of the coolant. I would suggest draining the radiator and refilling with full strength, then test it. You would still have some water in the block and heater core to mix with the new coolant.

What type of engine coolant does a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan?

provided that all the old coolant is completly flushed out any good 50-50 low no silacates antifreeze will work. The trational Green fluilds will all mix with each other b ut not the other colors, Some combinations will gel or silt up and then insulate or clog up the compleate cooling system. All antifreezes are marked to tell you what manufacyures minium spechs they will pass. The thing to remember is all the old fluild ( no matter what kind it is) Needs to be completely flushed out with clear water. and if your mixing the new coolant yourself it's best to use distilled water as many of the additives to drinking water aren't nessaryly a good coolant. Of course your dealer will sell you the Chysler Anti freeze for your car but you don't have to and the ones that are marked 50/50 are ready to go you just pour them in.

What kind of coolant is needed for a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

just go down to your local auto parts store and buy your basic antifreeze -- you can buy a premixed 50/50,, but depending on where you live and the temperatures,, I would suggest buying 100% antifreeze and adding water to it,, if you look on the back of the antifreeze bottle there will be a chart to determine the correct ratio mix for your areas temperature.

Can i mix coolant with universal coolant

Check the jug of antifreeze carefully to see if it says ALL COOLANTS. If so, your good to go.
Prestone make an ALL ENGINES coolant. You can mix this into any type coolant including the DEXCOOL GM uses.

Again....check the jug for use compatibility.

Be careful you don't buy PRE MIXED and dilute it, thinking it is pure antifreeze that needs mixing 50/50 with water.

Is there a special antifreeze/coolant for a 2008 pt cruiser or can you use any coolant such as Peak, Prestone, etc?

those are company's but there are two different kinds of antifreeze. both do the same thing but are different colors red and green. you can run either one in any car but you can't mix them up. if you mix the it will gel up in time and make part fail. a local auto part store will tell you for free what type you have. hope this helps. thank you.

Type of coolant for 05 stratus sxt

Any standard antifreeze coolant will work. If you live in the lower Midwest USA as I do, you can actually mix regular antifreeze 50/50 with water and you run no risk of it freezing. Detailed mixing instructions should be available on most antifreeze containers.
Best of luck.

Low Coolant Light

Why is it low? Leaking? The dumbest thing they sell is a 50/50 mix of antifreeze. You are getting 50% water and 50% coolant. Just buy a 100% antifreeze jug add it first and top it off with water. If the water is not low you may hve a bad coolant level sensor. It snaps into the radiator tank and is easy to replace when cold.

2002 Impala just bought toay running hot not quite

The cooling system may need to be serviced which is one of the things that is never done. The orange antifreeze has a life of 5 years and 150,000 miles and if it has never been flushed out, there may some crystal formation causing a restricted flow of antifreeze through the system. Try flushing out the cooling system with Preston radiator flush, use the dry power flush rather then the one from the bottle. Follow the instructions and replace the antifreeze with a 50/50 (water/antifreeze) mix, if you not sure how to mix it. You can buy them premixed 50/50. Too much water will boil over and too much antifreeze will gel up causing overheating. If you like you can replace the thermostat too, but that's not that easy on the 3.4 liter engines. If you go to Auto Zone you can pick up the antifreeze, radiator flush, and thermostat with the step by step instructions needed to get the job done. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any other questions you may have and good luck friend.
