After opening hood you will see two pipes running from up and below the radiator to engine. loosen the pipe which is above in position on engine, remove it and wait for the fluid to escape from engine

Now open radiator cap, wash opening with clean cloth ,position your mouth over the opening and blow air inside all the remaining fluid will be drained if you don't like this procedure you will have to loosen the pipe at lower end of radiator too to drain it.

after completion replace the pipes at their respective positions and add new anti freeze the amount is about 2 litres.

Start the engine and check for leaks add more coolant if required, after wards add fluid to resrve bottle and replace caps . You are done....

It depends on the street address. Flushing is in Zip 113. Downtown Flushing is 11355. East Flushing is 11358. Northern Flushing is 11354. Southern Flushing is 11367. You can get the correct zip code at usps.com

The antifreeze should be diluted How much is up to you. Also be sure to configure in the location where you live (hotter, colder) as this also makes a difference I'm pretty sure that antifreeze needs some water to work properly (activates chemicals in antifreeze) If you went 70% antifreeze & 30% water you should probably be fine no matter where you live. ========================================================== Ford vehicles come from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and the correct type of antifreeze for the vehicle . Ford states not to exceed 60% antifreeze in the mix

the water in your radiator is rusty because your antifreeze/water ratio is not correct. Antifreeze serves two important functions: protecting the cooling system at temperature extremes and inhibiting rust and corrosion in the system. When your antifreeze/water ratio is not correct Rust and sediment can accumulate in the cooling system. This can eventually clog your cooling system mainly your radiator and cause your car to overheat, and more serious problems with the over heating. I would suggest flushing your system and adding the correct antifreeze/water ratio mixture. Doing this your self or having it done by proffessional.

Replace the thermostat, and see if this corrects the situation. While you are doing this service the cooling system by flushing and replacing the coolant with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. Do not forget to bleed all air from the system. Inspect the radiator cap and replace if necessary. If this does not correct the, no heat, then look at the heater control valve.

Fords come from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and the correct type of antifreeze for the vehicle Ford states not to exceed 60 % antifreeze ( colder climates ) and not to drop below 40 % antifreeze for the corrosion protection ( warmer climates )

Yes, "procedure" is the correct spelling.

The color is green, that is the color of antifreeze that you need to use in your sebring.

If my math is correct it would take an additional ( .6 of a U.S. quart of antifreeze ) to increase a 30 % antifreeze volume to 40 % if the total volume of the mixture is 6 quarts

User Avatar

That is the correct spelling of the word "how" (by what method or procedure).

User Avatar

The correct spelling is technique (procedure).

whatever steps you do, you write. you know your procedure is a good procedure if it is able to be duplicated

after replacing points in engine, can correct timing be done to engine if engine is not run.

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.

No If You Have A Chevy Venture Van Like I Do Just Shoot Your SelfA correct and useful answerAll modern cars require a coolant mixture of a specific antifreeze and water. In some warm climates the mixture is water and corrosion inhibitor's.YOU MUST add the correct mixture of water and antifreeze!

If you had a compressor grenade you will probably never get all the trash out of the system.

The correct procedure for disposing hazardous waste depends on the material. For instance, disposing paint is much different than disposing combustibles.

The correct spelling is "procedure" (an operation or process).
