how many gallons of antifreeze in a 2003 blazer radiator with a/c
5 quarts of 50/50 (antifreeze/distilled water)
i flush the radiator filled it with antifreeze water .. now i heard i should take out air from inside of radiator or hoses so the air will not block circulation of the water? thank you.
water pump leaking at seal hard lower radiator hose or loose clamp hardened or punctured bypass hose shrunken timing cover gasket thermostat gasket shrunken
Drain radiator, rinse with water or radiator cleaner, then refill. Don't forget to check the leve after running the engine a while.
Usually a drain plug at bottom of radiator
Probably a blown or leaking head gasket.
Fill it till all the cooling veins are covered with antifreeze and distilled water depending on you environment.
Orange. Make sure to bleed out the air if you are filling the radiator.
In the top of the radiator or through the coolant recovery tank
1987 thru 2008 9 quarts coolant mixture. 1987 thru 2000 50% ethylene glycol based antifreeze, 50% distilled or deionized water 2000 thru 2008 50% Mopar 100,000 mile antifreeze with Hybrd Organic Technology (HOAT) , 50% distilled or deionized water
Low coolant? Water pump not circulating coolant? System air bound? cooling fans not working? Defective radiator cap? Bad temperature gauge?
A 50/50 mix of Green antifreeze and distilled water.
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.
its all the same. as long as its 50/50 mixture. u can but it pre mixed
you get a friend to hold it whilst violently beating it xx
If you are just topping up , a 50 /50 mixture of antifreeze and preferably distilled water ( Ford states to not exceed 60 % antifreeze ) can be added to the reservoir to bring the level up to the cold mark with the engine cold
In an emergency only, water doesn't provide the freezing and boiling protection of antifreeze. Also it doesn't have the lubricants and antirust additives for the water pump, radiator, etc...
Bottom of radiator.
Drain plug is located on the bottom of the radiator Right hand side.
The wrong anti-freeze could cause the water to freeze in the engine. The wrong anti-freeze could cause abnormal corrosion in the radiator.
The lower radiator hose connects the radiator and the water pump
Small plug on the bottom left(view from front) of the radiator.
