Hey Ryan==This is too general. You have to see where it is leaking from and repair it. Good luck, Joe

It goes in the engine compartment, but the coolant that you need is only available from the dealer. You need G12 coolant it can be purchased online and it mixes half and half with distilled water.

I have a 91 Ford escort that has two caps. one is on the radiator itself and one next to it that says coolant only. how do I know where the antifreeze goes? does a mixture of coolant and water go in the radiator or does only water go in radiator and coolant in the other one? I have never seen an engine with this. could you help explain it?

Don't complain; if the engine isn't leaking coolant that just means everything is sealed up properly.

when the engine is running and coolant will become hot to its operating temperature,the cooling system is under pressure,coolant will overflow and goes to coolant reservoir.when the engine goes cold coolant will go back to the rediator.

For a 1987 Mercury Grand Marquis : For the 5.0 liter / 302 cubic inch V8 engine ( 7.5 quarts of antifreeze with 7.5 quarts of preferably distilled water should give you a 50 / 50 mix of engine coolant ) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- For the 5.8 liter / 351 cubic inch ( 8.0 quarts of antifreeze )

Antifreeze is coolant. Coolant goes in the radiator. There is one type that is already mixed with water, and a type that isn't. Either one works, you just have to put half water and half coolant in the non mixed one.

1 and a half gallon of already mixed coolant

If there is no leak visible so you can see antifreeze under the parked car, you probably have a head gasket going bad. You may have some signs of steam in your exhaust, or at least a sweet smell coming from the exhaust. You should have a compression test done on your engine. That is exactly what the overflow reservoir is for. When the engine is hot, excess coolant goes into the overflow tank, as the engine cools,it draws coolant back into the radiator.

Any HOAT coolant will work. Zerex G-05 coolant is good too. Don't use anything else.

At the back of the engine on the coolant outlet that goes to the heater hoses on the firewall.

User Avatar

The coolant expands and rises when it is hot so it goes up, the coolant comes down when the car is cold.

You drain the oil immediately. If you run the engine with coolant mixed with the oil you will do serious harm to the engine. If you continue to drive it in this condition you will destroy the engine.

a 50/50 mixture of correct antifreeze and water, or the already premixed antifreeze. Use ONLY coolant that is designed for GM cars. Do NOT use the green colored or tinted antifreeze since this will gunk up your system and cause real problems like overheating or thermostat issues. I think the correct tint of the antifreeze should be orange, pink, or clear.

Either universal green or red ELC (extended life coolant), depending on what engine it has.

You likely have a leaky head gasket, and the coolant is being lost in your engine. Check your tail pipe for coolant.
