How do you a add antifreeze in a 2003 Monte Carlo?
If you just want to add a little you can use the overflow tank to do it or if the radiator isn't full just take the radiator cap off and pour it in.
Passenger side rear of engine down low. I had to take the two nuts off the strut tower tie bar and lift it slighty to get down there. That is a lousy design!! I then used a snorkel funnel to add fluid. On my 2001 Monte Carlo it is to the right of the bottom of the engine coolant, below and at the rear of the alternator, just in front of the fire wall. Hard…
What would cause a 2003 Buick Century's heater to blow cold air when idleing but will blow warm air when moving?
In a 2003 Ford Explorer : Into the engine coolant reservoir ( located in the engine compartment , on the passenger side ) The thread on cap is your pressure cap / radiator cap Only add when the engine is cold ( up to the cold mark on the reservoir ) * It came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and the correct type of antifreeze for the vehicle…
How many gallons of antifreeze must be mixed with 70 gallons of 25 percent antifreeze to get a mixture that is 80 percent antifreeze?
Find the overall balance of antifreeze: amount of antifreeze to start with + the amount of pure antifreeze to add = amount of antifreeze in the final solution Let X be the amount of pure antifreeze to add in gallons. (70 * 0.25) + X = 0.80 * (70+X) 17.5 + X = 56 + 0.8X 0.2X = 56 - 17.5 0.2X = 38.5 X = 38.5/0.2 = 192.5 gallons
Where do you add antifreeze in the engine I don't want to pour it in the wrong place I bought an antifreeze that is already mixed.?
Don't forget 50/50 solution too What kind of vehicle? What size engine? You don't add antifreeze to the engine, anyway. There should be an overflow jug on post '85 vehicles and on pre '85 vehicles you add the antifreeze to the radiator only. Please check your owner's manual or ask your car dealer for further information.
Ford vehicles come from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and the correct type of antifreeze for the vehicle Ford states not to exceed 60% antifreeze in the mix ( when you live in a colder climate ) They also state to not drop below 40% antifreeze in order to provide corrosion protection ( although the corrosion inhibitor package in the antifreeze does " wear out " * only add…
As per the owners manual, "1. Pull out the dipstick(the red transmission one) 2.Using a long-neck funnel, add enough fluid at the dipstick hole to bring it to the proper level. It does not take much fluid, generally less than one pint(0.5l) Do not overfill. " The transmission dipstick on the 3800 engine is located behind the engine towards the drivers side. It is right next to the brake fluid reservoir. Hope this helps.
What is wrong with a 1985 Nissan 300zx turbo if it only blows cold air the heat is on and apparently not working?
Two problems that I can think of are you need to add some antifreeze or you need to replace the thermostat.

It's not. When you replace it or add to it, make your best guess at 50 to70% antifreeze. It helps to add 1/3 water to an empty antifreeze jug & fill up with prestone. Then you have a good mix to use as needed. FYI: The antifreeze properties do not diminish with time, the rust inhibitors do. Replace it as recommended to prevent costlier repairs. CJ.
The cooling system in most vehicles has a reservoir and the reservoir is marked full and add. Open the cap when vehicle is totally cooled down and add a mixture of 50% water and 50% antifreeze and be sure to add the correct antifreeze for your vehicle. Never add just plain water unless it is an emergency to get you to a garage.
There is currently several class action law suits against General Motors regarding the (RED) Dexcool antifreeze. I would go to bgfindashop.com and find a repair shop that has the BG equipment and have them flush the system. The reason being, They run a cleaner and the back flush the entire system including the heater. They will then service it with the Green antifreeze and add a conditioner to help prolong the life of the water…
For the most part, only old cars (pre 1970s.....) require adding coolant directly to the radiator. Newer vehicles have a "reservoir tank" that can be accessed anytime. If the reservoir is below the Full line (or nearing or below the Low line....) - you can add proper antifreeze/coolant (check your owner's manual) directly to this reservoir tank. I've included the eHow article which outlines this process too....not to be confused, some owner's manuals MAY require…
