50 % water 50% coolant

Not sureon your year of bike, but start with 1 quart, then wait a few minutes, check, and add from there.

My Chrysler Concorde 2000 3.2? Overheated and melted a hole in the water resivour tank,so we replaced that, it still got hot fast, so we replaced thermostat, then it started making a loud noise it sounds...


The whistling noise is steam. The problem is you never attacked the source of the problem. What you need to do now is drain your radiator completely at opening T-spicket at the bottom of the radiator. While you drain with engine off, run your water hose on top, to flush out the radiator. Then run to the Auto store and buy "radiator flush" -- follow directions. After flushing out the radiator flush, close the T-spicket, and fill with NEW anti-freeze. By enough to fill to the very top. Mix the anti-freeze with water per instructions to your environmental weather.
Buy a new radiator cap which could have caused the problem in the first place by not allowing the correct pressure to blow off. Being a 2000 car is a little early for radiator problems, but an incorrect anti-freeze solution causes radiators to fail prematurely.. Better to have more than less because anti-freeze keeps the radiator from corroding.
Your radiator never cooled the water sufficiently, and boiled much of the water out, hence it got so hot that it would melt the water tank. The Thermostat could well have been the cause because it got corroded from the inept ant-freeze mixture. Did you find rust on the Thermostat ? If so it was the case. If not the radiator has lost cooling either by low water or the cores have become plugged up, in that case you will need a new radiator. See if the flush loosens the rust within the cores before buying an expensive radiator. Check the water hoses if leaking cooling. Run the car allow the engine to become hot before accepting that your water hoses are fine. Because heat expand everything, and may not leak until after the expansion.

What is the correct way to fill the radiator of a chevrolet venture The low coolant light came on then started flashing but the radiator is full of water but has no anti freeze is this the problem


Hi there!
First.- with the engine off and cool, put a flush and drain radiator cleaner run the engine for 10 minutes, turn it off, let it cool down.
Once the engine is not too hot, open the lowest hose of radiator while you put water in the main mouth of radiator.
Once you see the water flushing clear, put the hose back and then fill it with special GM antifreeze, (the one is orange color) put all gallon into it and the rest of water, LOOK FOR THE ONE YOU CAN ADD WATER, THAT'S THE BEST FOR YOUR VAN... Good Luck!

HOW TO DRAIN COOLANT FROM MY 2004 6.4 ENGINE MOUNTAINEER


Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure on how to drain the coolant from your radiator.


1. Prepare what you need. To make the process easier, it would be wise to have everything you need before you begin:

Pair of latex gloves.
Screwdriver or wrench.
Rags.
Radiator Flush.
Coolant.
Funnel.
Radiator cap.
Draining pan.

2. Place your car on an elevated ramp. If you don't have one, you can use a lifter to do the job. This is usually stashed in your car's compartment in the back. Positioning your car in an elevated position will make the draining process easier. Keep in mind that though that despite your car being in an elevated position it should still be in a level or flat position.
3. Make very certain that your engine has sufficiently cooled. Not warm to the touch but really, really cool. This is a safety measure to avoid your skin from being burned or scalded. Pressurized contents of the radiator will most likely shoot up in the air if you insist on opening the cap while the engine is still hot. Ergo, not a good idea.
4. Look for the radiator plug. Now's the time to wear your latex gloves because you are ready to begin the draining process. Feel the radiator plug underneath your car.
5. Take the draining pan. Place it directly underneath the radiator plug.
6. Tug the radiator plug loose. You will then see that the coolant is now draining into the pan. Once the coolant is collected in the pan, do not dispose of it as you would dirty water. Anti-freeze is bad for the environment. Keep within environmental laws and collect the liquid refuse in a sealed bottle and turn it over to the proper waste management venue. Keep in mind that Anti-Freeze is harmful to your skin so make sure none of the liquid refuse touches your skin.
7. Observe the consistency of the liquid refuse. If you see metal flakes and other tiny debris, this is a clear indication that your cooling system might need the hand of a professional.
8. Proceed to remove the radiator cap. This allows the air to circulate freely into the radiator tubes and helps speed along the draining process.
9. Check to see if the radiator cap needs replacing. Part of the reason why your radiator needs draining is that sediments and dirt coming from the cap directly mixes in with the Anti-Freeze and water in your radiator. If your radiator cap clearly shows wear, tear, and dry rot, replace it with a new one, pronto.
10. Tighten the radiator plug. After the initial draining process, tighten the radiator plug then fill the radiator with water to shake loose remaining Anti-Freeze in the radiator tubes.
11. Replace the radiator cap. Once you are done filling the radiator with water, replace the radiator cap.
12. Turn on the engine. This allows the remaining Anti-Freeze to be shaken off your radiator. Allow the engine to run for five minutes.
13. Turn the car's engine off and allow it to cool.
14. Repeat the flushing process until the water runs clear. Use the flushing agent this time to make sure your radiator is truly clean. You will know it's over when the water runs clear.
15. Pour in the new coolant. You may have done this many times over but it still always pays to read the instructions of the coolant product before proceeding. The rule of thumb is 50/50 which means 50% distilled water and 50% coolant.
16. Tighten the radiator cap.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Hello Sir, I have replaced the radiator, radiator heat sensor, radiator cap, and all hoses. There are no leaks coming from the engine. I have also replaced the anti-freeze with BMW manufactured...


After the car is cool and has been sitting for a while, remove the radiator cap, have someone start the car, the coolant in the radiator should drop a little, and there should be movement, if there is no movement, let the car run for a while, with some systems it won't cycle enough to notice until the engine warms up. If there is still no movement, you likely have a bad water pump and/or thermostat.
Another method as a "just to be sure", drain the coolant overflow tank, and fill it with clean distilled water. Drive the car for a few days (carefully not to overheat it obviously, if the engine is getting too hot to drive normally don't do this test). If after a few days of driving the fluid in the overflow tank is still clear (water), then there is no circulation in the system.
It's usually best to start by replacing the thermostat, and then re-check. If that doesn't fix the problem it is most likely a water pump, or in very rare cases a plugged radiator or coolant passage.

My son's car overheated. Went to get some anti


The overheating is caused by the sludge. It is very easy to correct this problem. Remove the radiator cap and open the drain valve at the bottom of radiator. If possible, remove the reservoir and flush out with water. Make sure to get all sludge out of reservoir, then reinstall. Once the radiator stops draining, insert water hose (without nozzle) and turn water on. Keep the drain valve open. Run water through radiator until it runs clear. Once it runs clear, start the engine and let it run while keeping the water running through radiator. Allow engine to run until the thermostat opens up. Continue running water through radiator with engine running until the water from drain runs clear. Once you have done that, turn off the engine. Close the drain valve and refill radiator with proper mixture of coolant and water. Once radiator is filled, start engine and let circulate through engine. Coolant level will drop as the coolant starts circulating. Shut off engine and top off radiator. Fill the reservoir with the required amount of coolant. Testing the coolant at least once a year will help prevent this from happening again. Coolant should be replace a minimum of five years, less if coolant bottle specifies.

HOW DFO YOU DRAIN THE RADIATOR OF 2002 3.4l MONTE


it should have a drain plug on the inner bottom that twist out. If not the bottom rad. hose will be fine to remove. I drain the water, and then run water through it with the hose still off. Replace the plug or hose and put in a cooling system cleaner (prestone) and fill with water. Start the car and let run for until it reaches a normal running temp, keep running for 5 min. urn engine off, let it cool and drain water. I then flush it again with water to remove any rust or gunk left in. I do this until I see good clear water running out. Reinstall your plug or hose and fill with (anti-freeze) be sure to get the right anti-freeze, some take a different color. If you use 50/50, it will take 3-4 to fill or 1 straight anti-freeze with mixture of water until full. Good luck

Water pump


Fill the radiator completely with coolant mixture. Let the engine warm up 10 to 15 mins. Is the upper radiator hose warm? If yes, then the water pump and thermostat are good. If all this works, then the leak is somewhere else. Hope this helps.
