Pour water/antifreeze at ratio 60/40 into radiator
then you should have your radiator flushed because you have rust in it. FYI: antifreeze can strip the paint off of your it you spill it. Also, you may need to replace your radiator if the antifreeze is leaking, it may be through a rusted/corroded portion of the radiator.
To change coolant on a Toyota Corolla, place a bucket under the radiator. Open the radiator drain valve and remove the radiator cap. When all antifreeze drains out, close the drain valve. Then refill with fresh antifreeze and replace the radiator cap.
You likely need to replace your radiator cap - the rubber seal in the cap is worn.
To replace a lower radiator hose on a Ford Focus, use a bucket to catch any antifreeze that might leak. Loosen the clamp from both ends on the hose that needs to be replaced. Put the clamps on the new hose and reposition the hose on the radiator and the other end where it needs to go. Tighten the clamps. Refill the radiator with antifreeze.
Pull your lower radiator hose, replace it when all fluid is out, and refill it.
It's very simple. Take out the old one and put in the new one. Just make sure you plug up the antifreeze hoses and buy more antifreeze for the new radiator.
Drain the Mercury Tracer radiator into a pan. Loosen the clamps at the ends of the radiator hose. Wiggle the hose to free the ends. Slide the hose off and replace it. Tighten the clamps an refill the radiator. Dispose of the old antifreeze as it is toxic to animals.
You don't fix it you replace it. Drain the radiator, replace the hose, and the thermostat, flush the system, install a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water, bleed the system.
I had a similar problem and ended up replacing both the lines and the radiator.
if drain plug is stopped up, u need to lose antifreeze and flush radiator and then replace with new antifreeze as obviously the radiator and coolant are dirty or drain plug would not stop up
Sounds like you need to flush the radiator and replace the thermostat
To replace the thermostat on a 91 Cavalier you need to drain the radiator. Remove the top radiator hose and water inlet. Remove the thermostat from under the inlet. Install the new thermostat and reinstall the inlet and hose. Fill the radiator with fresh antifreeze.
Make sure the engine is cool. Take off the radiator cap that is on the radiator. Pour in a half and half mixture of distilled water and antifreeze unti it is full then replace the radiator cap.
The heater core has no overflow hose. Cooling system is a closed loop system and the only overflow hose is the one going from the radiator cap to the reservoir. A thermostat that is stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat. Drain and flush the radiator, replace the thermostat, install a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water, bleed air from the system. You may also need to replace the radiator cap. Be sure and replace these parts with OEM parts.The heater core has no overflow hose.

Make sure all your plugs are connected at the bottom of fan.
From the transmission? No? But antifreeze & transmission fluid can mix. Your transmission uses a small portion of the radiator as a transmission cooler, normally at the very bottom or side. In very rare instances, this cooler can develop a leak and allow transmission fluid and antifreeze to mix together. The only fix is to replace the radiator.
1. Remove radiator cap. 2. Place funnel in hole. 3. Pour antifreeze into funnel until radiator is full. 4. Remove funnel. 5. Replace radiator can. 6. Remove Overflow reservoir cap. 7. Add extra antifreeze to Overflow reservoir to full mark. 8. Replace Overflow reservoir cap. 9. Start vehicle and watch temp gauge for 5 minutes, also watch engine area for antifreeze leaks.
Drain the radiator. Remove the top radiator hose on the 2003 Buick Century. Unbolt the hose inlet. Remove the inlet housing and take out the thermostat. Replace the thermostat, install the housing and top hose, and refill with antifreeze.
I am trying to drain old antifreeze and replace with new and cannot figure out how to remove the radiator plug on my 2001 Chevy impala 3400V6 engine?
$500-$600 w/ the dealer. They have to pull the radiator out to get down to the alternator underneath it. Happened to me.
The water pump on a 2002 Hyundai Accent is replaced by removing the engine accessories, disconnecting the radiator hoses, and unbolting the pump. A new gasket and pump can then be attached.
how do you replace antenna on a 1997 hyundai accent
how to replace the starter for a 1999 Hyundai elantra
I tried to remove my Hyundai Elantra 2002, im having a hard time pulling out the hoses. There is one screw that you have to remove on right hand side of the radiator, just beside those freon connection. I used a very small 10mm rachet.
