coolant/anti-freeze YES, BUT ALL ANTI-FREEZE IS NOT THE SAME YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR OWNERS MANUAL TO SEE WHICH TYPE YOU NEED. The words are sometimes used interchangeably. However, if you live in an equatorial country, your coolant is more likely to be water. I.E., Engine coolant is any liquid th…at cools the engine by dissipating the coolant temperature through the engine's radiator. (MORE)
Answer . Milky anti-freeze is usually an indication that motor oil is getting into the cooling system, probably through a bad head gasket or a cracked block or head.
Antifreeze is a liquid added to the cooling system of an automobile to ensure that the water within it does not freeze solid.
the most general formula of anti freeze is water and ethylene glycol (an alkohol with 2 -OH ) in difrent percent and afew color
I suppose you will get 2-phase liquid: antifreeze at the bottom and gasoline at the top.
You should only have to check the level during your regular oil change. If it is a little low, it's probably just the water evaporating off of the antifreeze in an unpressurized reservoir. If the tank is pressurized, (radiator cap on the tank) it should, in theory, not lose any coolant between servi…ces. If the coolant regularly goes down to the add marks on the reservoir, you have a leak somewhere, most likely. (MORE)

I need to change the anti-freeze in my 2008 Pathfinder. What do I need to do to perform this task?
oiefjdcuehahoid. its a lamborghini. I am from ISS that is my school. and I know ronoldinio
It prevents whatever it's blended in from freezing when it gets cold. For cars, it also doubles a little as rust inhibitor.

Antifreeze as such doesn't age, but it can evaporate slowly, pick up contaminants and get diluted(when the cooling system gets topped up). This will eventually make it a good idea to flush the system and to add new fluid.
You oil will look like coffee with a slight bit of cream. You will also see a grey substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. You will also see white smoke from the exhaust. And most likely your engine will overheat and you will have no apparent leak but will be loosing coolant.
\nThis is something I have never seen before. I would suspect you have a blown head gasket or cracked head. seek professional help immediately.
Check radiator hose, leaking water pump, look for hole in radiator, leaking coolant bottle or leaking seals.
Not much information to go on! If it is a very slight weep, or only slightly losing coolant within the engine, try using a 'Radiator Sealant'. There are several types, quite cheap to buy. This is a product that usually suspends minute pieces of cork (or similar) in a viscous liquid. You pour it into… your radiator expansion tank; top up with coolant and then, fingers crossed, it will seal the leak if small enough. These products also normally lubricate the water pump too. If this remedy doesn't work, more analysis of just where and of what type the leak is, will be needed. (MORE)
It is widely accepted that you should replace your antifreeze every two years but you can buy a hydrometer to check it to be sure.. After prolonged use, antifreeze will beak down and become very corrosive. It can lose its rust preventative properties and the cooling system can fail.
If the cooling system just has straight water in it , there is no corrosion protection for. the cooling system , water pump , head gaskets etc , the engine '"coolant " can freeze. or boil easier , if the coolant system freezes and the core plugs in the engine block. don't do there job , the engin…e block can crack etc (MORE)
means you have a leak some where pressurizing the system will tell you where the leak is
You first have to remove the black metal bar over the battery which has 3 screws. After you take off the bar then you have to remove the one screw which holds the battery in pace which is by the bottom side of the battery. This will allow you to remove and replace it, very simply. Hope this help…s! (MORE)
To keep The oil from freezing --------------- Engines produce alot of heat...to keep from overheating they require a method of dispersing that heat. Some cars are air cooled - but most use a Radiator filled with fluid, usually anti-freeze.(Ethylene Glycol) Even in winter an engine produces a si…gnifigant amount of heat and, for the Radiator to operate properly fluid must flow from inside the motor to the radiator to disperse the heat load. The antifreeze ensures that the fluid doesn't freeze which would trap the heat inside the engine and cause it to overheat. Which will destroy the motor. Also Anti freeze has added benefits such as anti rust, which keeps the inside of the cast iron motor from rusting, That can plug the radiator. Another benefit is that antifreeze - if it gets into your engine oil (thru a bad intake gasket for example) you have time before the engine will be destroyed. In the old days they used Alcohol in Radiators (because of it's low freezing point) however, if it got into the oil it can destroy an engine fairly quickly. In summary - Antifreeze is very important to the proper operation of you car's engine. (MORE)
If the antifreeze and distilled water mixture is too weak for theambient temperature then ( yes , the solution could freeze ) Ford vehicles come from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilledwater and the correct type of antifreeze for the vehicle Ford states not to exceed 60% antifreeze in the… mix ( for colderclimates etcetera ) (MORE)
A solution for your car yeah, but be more specific on what type of solution your talking about
generally if anti freeze is leaking into car this indicates that the heater core is worn out and has a hole you need to replace heater core ,or lift the hood and disconect the heater hoses join the hoses together with small pipe and 2 hose clamps and the leak will stop But the heater will not work
Anytime as long as you are adding it to the reservoir. Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot.
No, mine froze and broke at about 22 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday. Terminology: -- A valve that exits a house, and is meant to attach to a garden hose, is called a Sillcock . -- If the sillcock is manufactured to resist freezing in the winter, it is sold as Frost-proof . Note that they only re…sist freezing -- they are not freeze proof. -- An Anti-syphon (also spelled Anti-siphon ) mechanism prevents water outside the house (for instance if the other end of the hose is immersed in a pond or swimming pool), from accidentally being sucked backward into the house's plumbing. [This can happen when there is a dramatic change in water pressure, such as when someone flushes a toilet. You do not want pond water mixing with your drinking water.] There are two parts to the design of a frost-proof sillcock, that make it able to survive freezing weather without bursting. First, the entire unit is very long, typically 8" to 12". Although the handle that operates the sillcock is outside the house, the valve itself is all the way at the other end -- deep inside the house. This means the heat from inside the house should be warm enough, the valve itself will never freeze. Second, the sillcock is fitted with an anti-syphon mechanism. If you shut off the valve, and remove the hose, all the water in the sillcock will drain out. That means the entire sillcock will be empty. There will be no water inside that can freeze. Good in theory, so why are they not freeze proof? 1) The house must be heated. If the valve is in an unheated part of the house such as a crawlspace, or the building is entirely unheated, the valve will freeze. 2) The sillcock has been insulated. If you put insulation around any part of the sillcock, you will block the heat of the house away from the sillcock. The cold weather outside will chill the pipe and eventually freeze it. 3) The sillcock was installed wrong. It must be tilted slightly, so that water will drain out when the hose is removed. If the water doesn't drain out, it will eventually freeze. [This is what happened in my case.] 4) The hose was never removed. Before freezing weather begins, you must remove the hose from the sillcock, and let the water drain out. If the hose remains, water also remains inside the sillcock, and it will freeze. If you recognize any of the above problems, you must take further action to prevent freezing. All pipes that exit a house, must have a separate valve that can shut off the water. Before freezing weather begins, check along the length of the pipe and find the shut-off valve. Close it off. Go outside, open the sillcock, and let the water drain out, all the way back to the shut-off valve. [Sometimes, the shut-off valve will have a small thumbscrew built into it to help drain the water. After you close off the valve, loosen the thumbscrew until air enters the valve and releases the water to drain.] When there is no water in the pipe, it will not freeze. You may wonder, how will you know when freezing weather will begin, before it begins. Remove your hoses after the season's first frost. That's when the leaves drop, and pretty much everything in the garden dies. The sillcock is frost-proof, so you can wait that long. Just not much longer. (MORE)
Basically anti is like repellent so yeah you already got rid of if you want to get rid of it start downloading some random junk.
on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator and facing down is the drain cock.most are white and a plastic type material open it and let it drain. You may have to remove a shield that runs straight across the car to get to the drain..that's very simple take out 3 to 5 of the small bolts and …push shield until u can see the drain..you do not have to remove all bolts in the shield to get to the drain just the ones on drivers side. now the fun part near your oil pan you will find a drain plug usally a hex depending upon the year model..remove it and let it drain. a simpilar way to just empty the radiator is on the passanger side.there near the bottom you will see a hose that runs to the radiator u can remove the hose clip and let it drain..but i recommened you use the drain cock. be sure to do this when car is cold and rember to re-install drain plug and drain cock. fill with water let it run for 10 to 20 minutes. let car cool down open radiator drain and let out the plain water. now you can refil with your 50/50 mixture. p.s. if you could not get drain plugs open just repeat plain water procedure 2 to 3 times before you add your mixture.

You put it in the radiator under the hood. It is usually up front near the grill of the vehicle. It has a silver metal cap most of the time. VERY IMPORTANT before you take the cap off make sure its not hot if you have been running the car wait a little while. If you open the cap when its hot it will… spit hot antifreeze in your face and burn you. You can also add a little water until you can get somewhere to buy antifreeze. (MORE)
you get the the classical music witch you got from winning bingo,go to the store put the music in the music player and the teens will go away then the store guy will give it to you
You get the teenagers to go away with the cd you won from the bingo game, you blast it to max.
you go to the snow plow truck by the school and offer to help him get the frost off of his windows so he can work.
No - antifreeze is a specific chemical (ethylene glycol) used in car radiators to prevent the heat diffusions system from freezing in winter. However, you will notice that salad dressing doesn't freeze at 0 C (32 F) like water will. This is because salad dressing has oil (usually olive oil or anothe…r vegetable-based oil) and a number of solutes (seasonings, etc.) that disrupt the bonds between the water molecules. Because of this, salad dressing has to get much colder than water before it will freeze. (MORE)
Antifreeze provides corrosion protection until the corrosion inhibitor package is " worn out " and also will raise the boiling point of the engine coolant Short answer ( YES )
Yes it is. It keeps the engine cool in summer and won't freeze in the winter; hence the two different names for the same thing.
The first sign of antifreeze poisoning in dogs you'd probably see is what looks like drunken behavior Other signs you might see are: Wobbly, uncoordinated movement, nausea or vomiting, excessive urination and possibly diarrhea, rapid heart beat, weakness, and possibly seizures or convulsions. … For immediate first aid, and only if you are positive that your dog has drank antifreeze, try to induce vomiting by giving your dog a simple hydrogen peroxide solution (one teaspoon per five pounds of body weight, with no more than three teaspoons given at once). This method should only be used if the toxin has been ingested in the previous 2 hours, and should only be given 3 times, spaced apart at 10-minute intervals. If your pet has not vomited after the third dose, stop giving it the hydrogen peroxide solution and seek immediate veterinary attention. (MORE)
Go to a service center or a school with an automotive technician program (your local community college should offer one). They'll have storage tanks for used refrigerant. You'll probably be charged a small fee for their use.
Pure water does not have any anti corrosion or lubricant properties and should only be used in an emergency. Pure water does not have any anti corrosion or lubricant properties and should only be used in an emergency.
Most cars take between 8-10 qts or 2- 2 1/2 US gl plus maybe a little for overflow. Get 3 gals 50/50 if refilling from empty and put rest in your garage.
According to the 2000 Ford Expedition Owner Guide : It came from the factory with ( green color anti-freeze mixed 50/50 with distilled water ( anti-freeze must meet Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A )
Hybrid Organic Antifreeze Technology. It is the 5 year formulaChrysler uses. Zerex sells it as "G05". Mercedes uses it also, butthey color it blue. It is not compatible with GM Dexcool.
Antifreeze absorbs and releases heat constantly. Over time, this causes the antifreeze to break down.
To keep the system from freezing up in a cold climate and also keepcorrosion to a minimum.
Once it's burnt up, it can no longer absorb heat from the engine block as effectively. This affects the vehicle's cooling, and may cause it to run hot or overheat.
Liquid anti freeze is used in windshield wiper fluid, in coolant for engines, HVAC chillers and solar water heaters. Anti freeze is also used in a component that defrosts airline wings.
The best and only antifreeze to use is exactly what is listed inyour owners manual.
Purchase an inexpensive coolant tester from your local auto parts store. When the engine is cold, either remove the radiator cap and draw a sample out or open the petcock drain and let a little coolant out into a clean cup for a sample. Use the tester to see what the coolant will protect the engine …from freezing. (MORE)
All Caravan and Grand Caravans from 95 -2003 will run happily onregular green anti-freeze. I have had 4 of these vehicles and nevera problem with anti-freeze.
Long Life Antifreeze should be changed every 5 years or every 100,000 miles whichever comes first. Regular antifreeze that is not long life should be changed every 2 years or 36,000 miles whichever comes first. There are several kinds designed for different vehicle manufacturers. Consult your owner…s manual for recommended coolant type and service intervals. (MORE)
