Best Answer

50/50 water and Anti-freeze mixture into a cold radiator or coolant tank. DO NOT open cap on a warm radiator as it may expell scalding water.

It is critical that you know what kind of antifreeze your car takes. There are 2 general kinds. Long life and traditional Green coolant. The sensors base data on the correct chemical composition of the one that was originally installed in it. Therefore adding wrong one may cause the ecm to adjust the fuel mixture incorrectly or cause sensor damage. Some vehicles require different long life coolants- GM has Dex-cool, Ford just came out with another, Honda has their own. If the concentration is too great or too weak, it will not work correct.

Can Castro oil be used for brake fluid?

Only brake fluid can be used for brake fluid. Brake fluid is a glycol-based liquid - it's closer to antifreeze than to oil, but don't use antifreeze in it either. Only brake fluid.
