Add the coolant into the coolant reservoir. Be sure the engine is cool when you remove the cap off the reservoir.

How do you do a coolant flush on a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix?

Install a standard flushing T using instruction that are provide with product. Flush system with water. Since drain values are not on these radiators, use a small diameter flexible tube about 5 ft long and put it in the radiator through the radiator cap and push it to the bottom of the radiator and simply siphon out water. Enough water can be extracted via siphon to get a 50/50 mixture.

Even without a cap, you still have a drain plug at the bottom of the radiator, it will unscrew, and release all your water, then you have a separate resovoir for coolant that you fill it back up with, it will say coolant on it.

Where is the radiator cap on a 1998 Saturn sl2?

Technically, there is no fill cap on the radiator. To add coolant, open the overflow tank. It should be on the Passenger side fender, next to the windshield fluid tank. The coolant tank is pressurized when the engine is hot. Be very careful removing the cap to the coolant overflow if the engine has been running, since the scalding hot coolant can burn you.

I have a coolant leak on a 1996 Mercury Sable Since there is no traditional radiator cap can the additives that are supposed to stop coolant leaks be added to the expansion tank?

No. The expansion tank will not let coolant drain into the radiator. Doing this will cause the whole system to be clogged up. WHO POSTED THIS MISSINFORMATION. OPEN A REPAIR MANUAL BEFORE YOU ANSWER QUESTIONS.

If you have a 2002 grand prix gtp low coolant light is on and the radiator and reservoir are filled any suggestions?

It is the coolant level sensor that is located on the radiator just below the filler neck. This is a dealer only part. It costs around 25 dollars. Just disconnect wire plug and then detach retaining clip and pull out sensor from radiator. Some coolant (Dex-Cool) will come out which is normal. Then take new sensor and just push on till you hear a click which means the sensor is now secure to radiator. Then install plug and you are done with installation. Check radiator level and if low add some DEXCOOL only since you have a GM car that was made after 1995.

How do you drain out and refill new coolant on 2004 Chevy Silverado?

There is a petcock on the right side toward the bottom of the radiator that you must loosen. Also, disconnect the lower radiator hose. I believe it is an 8 or 9 gallon system. Refill the coolant by pouring it into the coolant tank, since Chevy has quit putting caps on radiators. Josh C

Does the air conditioning system take r134 to recharge it and does coolant in radiator affect the air conditioning system on a 1991 Buick Park Avenue?

Originally this car had R12 refrigerant. It may have since been updated to accept R134a. The coolant/radiator system is not part of the air conditioning system. But the hot antifreeze-coolant is used for the heating system...

Does a 2002 grand prix have a radiator drain plug?

Probably not. I had a 1998 and don't recall seeing one. Radiator drain plugs have fallen out of favor since it creates another place for an aluminum radiator to crack and leak. If there is one it would be found at the bottom of the radiator on the side without the lower radiator hose.
