Use premix to fill the radiator. Then add to the coolant overflow bottle to get the level to the full hot marking.

Refilling radiator in 96 grand am 6 cly 3,1

The entire cooling system holds 13.1 quarts. This includes antifreeze and water. Install no more than 9 quart 5 oz maximum of antifreeze and the rest is water. This will give you a 70% antifreeze and 30% water in the coolant system. You will have minus 45 degrees F or colder protection. Minimum antifreeze added would be 6 quart 18 oz and the rest is water. This would give you the minimum protection needed for your coolant system. If you live up in the colder climates, I would go with the 70% to 30% ratio of antifreeze to water. This is for the 3.1 L 6 cyl engine only.

How are you supposed to add antifreeze to a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

the plastic jug is an overflow container when the vehicle gets warm excess coolant from the radiator flows to it there is a sensor somewhere on the jug or in it for coolant level if it doesnt hold coolant it is most likely cracked as it is only plastic and should be replaced

How much antifreezes do u put back n after draining out of a 2005 Pontic grand prix

I would generally drain the whole system, including the radiator, then refill with a 50% solution of water and antifreeze. I believe this is the standard procedure for most autos. Fill the engine and the overflow tank. Run the engine till at temperature, then shut down for an hour. By then, the overflow tank will be low if not empty, and need to be refilled. As you use the vehicle, you may need to refill the tank from time to time. as for the amount of AF, hard to tell, just mix a 50-50 solution and add it to the radiator/tank till full, then proceed as noted above. I suggest mixing the solution first, then begin to add.

How do I refill water into the radiator of a 1998 Pontiac Grand AM SE? I do not know where the refill cap is?

it's on the Coolant Reservoir & usually it has a Red Radiator Emblem on the Coolant Reservoir Cap. It will not be on the Radiator, but on a little tank near the front Strut Tower

Washer fluid in the coolent

if u didn't run the engine no, just use a hose and flush tank, if u did run the engine just drain and refill the radiator with 50/50 solution of long life antifreeze, also flush the coolant reservoir with a hose as well..

Is there a special way to add coolant to the Grand PRix

I assume it's a V6, I know from working on Fords and when we would refill the radiator on a V6, we would take the upper hose loose from the radiator and back fill it that way. Hope this helps
