Question about 1998 Nissan Altima
What type of anti-freeze do I put in my radiator the regular green stuff or the orange stuff, the computer at the auto supply store did not specify. I seem to be dry, and while my car has not totally overheated, it is running hot, when I looked under the hood, there was no fluid in the overflow thing and when I looked in the radiator I didn't see any fluid. (the man at Advance Auto told me look to see what color was on the lid, but I don't see any color on the lid) I bought their brand 50/50 coolant. I plan to drop it off tonight or early tomorrow to my mechanic (abt 5 miles) but I am afraid to drive it if it is dry. (the manual does not specify, it just says to add coolant to the resevior and check it with the motor running. Help, Cynthia
You will need to pour the coolant directly into the radiator. To do this the engine must be cold or you risk burning yourself when removing the pressure cap. Fill up the radiator to the top and then add more to the overfolow tank. Make sure you push the cap down to close and twist the cap so the cap will not come off
