How to add antifreeze 2002 dodge intrepid


Open the container of antifreeze. Using a separate EMPTY gallon-size container, pour out HALF of the contents into the empty container, making sure not to spill any. Now, FILL the newly filled container with tap water. Fill the rest of the antifreeze with water, also. Now, you are ready to add antifreeze to your vehicle! Simply locate the radiator cap, (Don't touch it if it's hot!!) and unscrew it. Pour the desired amount of your mixed antifreeze into the radiator. Remember not to do this without proper knowledge!

Do I need to add coolant


You can add some plain water, or go ahead and mix with coolant. The level should be half way between full and add when the engine is cold.

How do i put water in my radiator?


you need to replace thermostat and radiator cap.look under hood around engine compartment.look for a radiator cap near radiator,add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system to bring up boiling point.pure water will cause engine run hotter because water evaporate away,remove radiator pour coolant in the radiator until coolant stop dropping in the radiator now some vechicle pour coolant in the coolant overflow jug,pour coolant until coolant level stop dropping and the coolant level stay at cold full mark.start engie let idle few minutes, watch coolant level in radiator if coolant start dropping add more coolant, when coolant level stop dropping put radiator cap back on let engine idle until both top radaitor hose and bottom coolant hose get warm turn off engine wait until it get cool then take a large rag slightly open radiator just a litle at a time to keep from getting scaled.once radiator remove add more coolant if low,put radiator cap back on start the engine let it idle watch the temp gauge if temperature gauge going hot zone stop engine wait until cool then add more coolant,keep doing this until engine stop overheating going into hot zone and coolant level stop dropping,make the coolant overflow jug coolant level stay at full cold mark, dont let jug run empty if so air will get in the coolant system causing engine to overheat.

I have a mitsubishi lancer 2002. The coolant reservoir tank is empty. Radiator is full. I just need to add coolant to reservoir. Do i add straight coolant or does it need to be a 50/50 water/coolant mix?


It is best to add a coolant mix. You can get it ready mixed, but try to ascertain if your car now has in it green mix or red mix. It is best not to mix these 2 mixes LOL
If you cannot make out what is in there now, just add demineralised water.

I replaced my radiator on my 2004 with a 2.2 and it seems like the thermostat is not opening. It can not get the air out. It seem to just to over heat and push the coolant out. Randy


REPLACE THERMOSTAT IF TOP COOLANT COOLANT HOSE GOING TO RADIATOR IS HOT TO TOUCH THERMOSTAT OPEN. TO BLEED COOLANT SYSTEM FIRST YOU NEED TO ADD COOLANT TO THE COOLANT OVER FLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING AND STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WAIT 3 MINUTES IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WITH RADIATOR OVER CAP OFF CRANK ENGINE FOR MINUTE WATCH COOLANT LEVEL AT OVERFLOW JUG.IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG.WHEN COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING IN OVERFLOW JUG.SCREW BACK ON THE RADIATOR CAP TO OVERFLOW JUG.WHILE ENGINE IDLING WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN TEMPERATURE START CLIMBING TURN OFF ENGINE WAIT A WHILE KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.WHEN COOLANT COOL DOWN SOME. PLACE A LARGE RAG OVER THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED, THEN REMOVE CAP ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG TO THE FULL COLD MARK.THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS SCREW BACK ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.THEN START ENGINE WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WATCH COOLANT TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN COOLANT TEMPERATURE START RISING TURN OFF ENGINE AGAIN WAIT UNTIL ENGINE COOL DOWN ENOUGH TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED TAKE PLACE LARGE RAG OVER RADIATOR CAP WHICH IS THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG CAP OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED ADD COOLANT UNTIL AT FULL COLD MARK. WHEN YOUR COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING.AND TOP RADIATOR HOSE VERY HOT THERMOSTAT OPEN AND AIR IS OUT THE COOLANT SYSTEM. MAKE SURE YOUR COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG HAS COOLANT IN IT,WHEN ENGINE COOL DOWN CHECK COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG KEEP COOLANT LEVEL AT FULL COLD MARK.BECAUSE IF OVERFLOW JUG IS EMPTY THATS A SIGN RADIATOR COOLANT LEVEL LOW.WHEN OVERFLOW JUG EMPTY IT WILL ALLOW AIR GET IN THE COOLANT SYSTEM AND CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT.WHEN REPLACING THERMOSTAT ALSO REPLACE THE RADIATOR CAP ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG.

Where do you add the coolant in a chevy Malibu maxi 2004?


You add at the coolant surge tank. The surge tank is located at the rear of the engine compartment, the tank has a radiator style cap on it. Never open hot!

My coolant light is low and im not sure what kind to add?


If your coolants color is pink you must add coolant that is pink. If it is green you must add green. You CANNOT mix green and pink together. You can get 50/50 mix which is half coolant and half water which is ready to use. You can also get coolant that does not have water added to it but you will still need to add water. This is usually better for your buck.

Is there special directions to put coolant in?


Welcome to FIxYa.com



How to Fill Coolant

If the coolant system has been flushed, first add 100 percent ethylene glycol in

the amount listed for the appropriate engine application. Then slowly add clean

water to the system until the level of the coolant mixture has reached the base-of

the radiator neck. Wait for two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant

mixture. add clean water if necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to the

base of the radiator neck

When refilling the engine cooling system, add three engine coolant supplement

sealant pellets, GM RN 3634621 or equivalent, and GM approved new Ethylene

Glycol Coolant DEX-COOL GM RN 9985809.

If the cooling system is being refilled ONLY (no flush), a 50 percent ethylene

glycol and 50 percent clean water mixture should be used to fill the system. Fill

the system until the level of the 50150 mixture has reached the base of the radiator

neck. Wait two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant mixture. add a 50/50

ethylene glycol water mixture as necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to

the base of the radiator neck.

Install the radiator cap making certain the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

Close all air bleeds. DO NOT over torque the air bleed valve. The air bleed valve is

made out of brass.

Fill the coolant reservoir with a 50 percent ethylene glycol and a 50 percent clean

water coolant mixture. The proper amount of this mixture to be installed into the

coolant reservoir is listed below:

Add 0.65 liters (0.68 quarts) of a 5010 mixture of ethylene glycol and clean water

to the coolant recovery reservoir.

CAUTION: The low coolant indicator lamp may come on after this procedure. After

operating the vehicle so that the engine heats up and cools down three times. if at

any time the "TEMP' warning indicator comes on. Immediate action is required.

Air bleed vent is at the thermostat house
