Even the bigger bikes only hold between two and four quarts. If you have one gallon of antifreeze you will have enough to do a complete change. If you buy concentrated antifreeze only use distilled water to dilute it. Tap water will add unwanted minerals that could cause deposits in the motor and radiator. Most motorcycle water pumps use a ceramic washer so they only recommend you use a NON-SILICA formula anti-freeze (any motorcycle manufacturers antifreeze, Gm Dexcool, etc.). 50/50 mix should be right for all riding conditions. If you have enough coolant for the engine but not the over flow bottle reuse some of the old anti freeze in the over flow bottle.

Coolant in oil


could be a bad O ring somewhere, but could be bigger problem. Maybe gasket or cracked head. If coolant in oil it is probably the latter

HOW TO REPLACE WATER PUMP ON MY 1995 CADALLIC EL DORADO


Instructions
    • Place a ratchet driver into the drain plug on the Cadillac's radiator and drain the coolant into a drain pan. Close the drain plug after you drain the coolant.
    • 2Remove the radiator hose from the water pump. The hose has a compression clamp on it. Squeeze the clamp together with pliers and then slide the hose off the pump.

    • 3Locate the tensioner pulley for the water pump. It situates on the engine between the water pump and the crankshaft. Place a ratchet driver into the square-receiving hole on the pulley and rate the pulley to loosen tension on the drive belt. Pull the drive belt off the water pump pulley.
    • 4Remove the four bolts that hold the pump onto the front of the engine block with a socket. Pull the pump out of the engine block and discard it.
    • 5Scrape the old gasket off the engine block with a wire brush and shop towel.
    • 6Place the o-ring onto the water pump and wet it with coolant.
    • 7Press the water pump into the Cadillac's engine block and tighten down the bolts with the socket to secure it to the block.
    • 8Rotate the tensioner pulley and place the drive belt onto the water pump pulley.
    • 9Place the radiator hose onto the water pump and use the clamp and pliers to secure it.
    • 10Drain the radiator coolant back into the radiator via the filler spout located on top of the radiator.

How to change a water pump


First drain the coolant if possible (you will find a drain **** on the bottom drivers side of rad). Loosen the water pump pulley bolts while serpentine belt still attached (10mm X 4). Remove the serpentine belt, and plastic diagram bracket just above the waterpump. Remove the (8mm bolts X 5) holding the water pump to front engine housing. Note the little arrow or triangle at the top of waterpump when removing, it will help you to install new water pump in same location. Scrape off most of the old gasket material, use fine sand paper to clean engine surface as best as possible. Install new gasket to water pump, and align the holes (it only goes on one way, and maybe upside down if they don't line up). Locate arrow and reinstall, torque 5 bolts to 89 in/lbs tight but not too tight. Reinstall pulley, serpentine belt and bracket. Tighten the pulley bolts, refill coolant (close drain ****). Just above the waterpump there is a coolant hose with a little 7mm screw for a bleeder. Open the bleeder (engine off). Continue to fill rad with coolant until it comes out bleeder. Close bleeder and test run. Recheck the coolant level later when cooled.

How do i change the collant in my 1994 cbr 600 f2 my coolent is all souping right now


remove seat, turn fuel selector off, pull off fuel line to fuel filter, remove tank, you should see radiator cap now... turn loose not off, just incase still has pressure... now follow lower radiator hose and it will lead to the water pump and on the water pump there is a little screw on the bottom sticking out of the side...thats the drain for the system ...now place something to catch a lot of fluid and when you take the drain bolt out it'll start coming out but as soon as you take off the radiator cap it will pour out fast so be prepared. that bolt i think has a washer on it to, don't lose it...once drained, put drain bolt back firmly dont torque stand the bike up on a wheel stand and now slowly ever so slowly start to pour your coolant: coolaid, waterwetter, whatever, but not tap water. now jiggle the bike around once in awhile to get trapped air out of it it, may look full but you might have to get a stand or box about waist high set your tank on it and hook up the fuel...be careful dont let the tank fall, get someone to hold it for you...start the bike let it run for a minute shut down add more coolant, start it again run it and jiggle the bike watch to see if water bubbles are still coming out now rap the throttle up to about 4000rpm once or twice check the level again turn bike off let it set for a minute again, does the level stay now right up to the neck.... well then put on the cap and everything back on.. now when you have everything back on take for a short ride and then check your coolant reservoir, dont overfill it just up to the warm mark and you should now check the drain bolt for leaks...all done.
Can i get a very helpful reply....thanks

Kawasaki motorcycle is heating up and engine not being cooled


hello
if the water pump was working before draining all the fluids i would possibly rule out the pump failing. i do think it is very possible, while very common that there may need to be more coolant added. coolant needs to be added through the radiator cap, and a good practice is to run the cycle while the cap is off and add coolant accordingly. do this for a few minutes. cause likely what has happened is there was an air pocket when adding the coolant, and this can make is seem like enough was put in. but after the pump working it can cycle the water through and help expose those pockets.
hope this was helpful. thank you.
