Yes, you can. Depending on how much you put in, it will change the boiling point of the coolant. If it's just a little bit, you shouldn't affect it that much. If it's a lot, you have to watch the temperature more often. For best results, you need a 50/50 mixture of coolant & water.

It means that your engine oil is mixing in with your radiator fluid. You probably have water in your oil too. I would take it in and have it fixed.

Rust, It is time for a coolant flush.

Same as in English, "orange". The a is nasal instead of open, though.

yes, they are. here are the flame colors in order from hottest to coolest. white - hottest blue - hotter yellow - hot orange - cooler than yellow red - cooler than all of above

Its in behind the left fan on the radiator. Its pretty deep down in there, with a little orange/yellow loop on top. If your engine is hot, you'll probably burn your hand on the left side of your upper radiator hose reaching in to check it.Good Luck!

if you are talking about the orange light that looks like (sorta) a house, it would be a low coolant warning light. apparently, that is supposed to be a radiator.

Lift hood, look down between engine and radiator on right side of engine bay. The unit that looks like a coffee can with and orange juice can hung off of it with a large wire from the battery going to it is the starter and solenoid.

Can u use orange juice instead of ape cider

User Avatar

No. Orange Juice is far more acidic and far less sweet than orange marmalade. Instead, try apricot jam.

depending if you live in mainly cold or hot weather area, cold weather-- use a 50-50 dexcool [orange liquid] straight in backup tank and 50% antifreeze/50% water in radiator, do not add water to backup tank. Hot weather-- [my recommendation] use a 50-50 dexcool [orange liquid] straight in backup tank [no water], and 20% antifreeze/80% water plus add liquid called waterwetter [pink liquid] to radiator, this will greatly keep engine running cooler by almost 15-20 degrees

The orange exterior of a burner flame is cooler than the blueish inner cone

Its usually cooler outside; leaves on the trees are usually yellow, red, or orange.

the main colors of stars (from hottest to cooler) are blue, white, yellow, orange, red.

Orange. Make sure to bleed out the air if you are filling the radiator.

pulpless orange juice or urine

My only guess is that the engine needs servicing. In most cases it will not. Its most likely to be an electronics fault that there is an orange engine displayed. Still i suggest you take it to get fixed.
