The following has absolutely nothing to do with the question asked. Just someone blowing off steam.
First of all there is a lawsuit against dextrol and dexcool anti-freeze that the gm vehicles are using,it causes sludge in the radiator and heater core,and it disolves the intake manifols gaskets.. ! Put the heater control on hot ,so to open the lines to the heater core so it will drain out.. Then drain the system ,there is a small drain valve right under the radiator on the drivers side,drain ,take off the radiator cap,so it will drain faster,..rust and sludge should come out!! .you can close the valve and pour in a radiator flush ,sold at all parts stores,such as Prestone, etc.. or just put a garden hose in the radaitor cop opening .let it run for a couple of minutes,,if your ambitious take off the bottom radiator hose,and alot of water will come out of the block faster,Sometimes I will start my vehicle and let it idle while the engine is running,so the thermostat will open and allow water to go into the engine block...but don't let it overheat!! after about 15-20 minutes let everything drain out ..close the drain valve and leave the heater control on hot , refill the system with anti-freeze.....".Advance Auto Parts" has a replacement anti-freeze , use the one in the yellow gallon jug ,it says for "use in all systems" ...Don,t put that Drexcool or Drextrol back in !!!! I even had my venture drained and refilled at my local Chevy dealer,in the past .it still had that sludge in it..I took it right home and drained out their anti-freeze, and refilled it with Advance Auto Parts brand.Van runs great ..doesn't overheat ...and I have NO Sludge !!! P.S. gp to Google and type in Drexcool, or Drextrol....You'll see !!!
Probably still has air trapped in the system from an improper refill procedure.
A 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and distilled water.
I assume you are referring to a fixed leak in the cooling system. In that case, add a solution of 50% antifreeze and 50% water to refill the system.
you should mix antifreeze half and half with clean water and fill radiator to full, then add to cold line in the overflow tank
Drain, flush, and refill.
drain the whole cooling system and refill it. You will never know if you don't give details of your car!
It means, that you have to refill oil and cooling water.
You need to get a long hose funnel and insert in power steering fill.
there is a fill plug on the passenger side rear of the transmission, toward the top. its a 15/16" hex. there is no dipstick. you can find the refill procedure in the sequoia section under "how do you refill transmission fluid in a 2005 seqouia" the transmission and the procedure are the same.
Hi, The port is between the engine and the radiator. I have included a link that shows its location. Good Luck
Special tool required to refill it. Must have tool .
It is recomended that you use a syringe that is designed for ink refills.
A cooling system is supposed to be drained not just to rid the gurgling sound. It also helps the plumbers to clean and unclog any accumulated residue.
Here is the procedure to do the job. 1 - Drain the cooling system until the coolant is below the level of the water pump. 2 - Remove the guard for the drive belt. 3 - Loosen the bolts for the water pump pulley (do not remove them yet). 4 - Remove the drive belt. 5 - Remove the bolts for the water pump pulley. 6 - Remove the water pump pulley. 7 - Remove the bolts for the water pump. 8 - Remove the water pump. 9 - Remove the water pump gasket. 10 - Clean the water pump mating surfaces. Reverse the procedure to install the new pump, making sure you use a new gasket. Refill the cooling system & check for leaks.
Refill is a noun (a refill) and a verb (to refill).
No, not unless you have the right tools and training to refill it properly. You must evacuate the system before you can refill it; that requires special machines. Contrary to popular belief you cannot back-fill the system using the compressor to evacuate it.
This is often caused by air being trapped in the cooling system. Get a qualified mechanic to drain, flush and refill the radiator/cooling system.
Why do you want to refill it is there a leak? It depends on the type of refrigerant and how much refrigerant will be needed. Check with 3 or 4 heating and cooling service establishments and get an average of what there charging in your area.
It is possible to refill your own cartridges, however it does require a special kit and supplies to do so. It is easier to send in the cartridges to be recycled and get a small amount of money for it.
Hey Nancy==Simply remove the drain plugs from each side of the block and the bottom of the radiator. CAtch the old coolant and dispose of it properly. Refill the system with 50/50 mix of coolant and water. GoodluckJoe
You are most likely low on coolant or if you have had a coolant change recently the problem is due to insufficient coolant within the system which is also results in having air trapped in the system. Check your coolant level in both the radiator and the overflow bottle. I also recommend that you follow the procedure for removing trapped air in the cooling system. It can be found as part of the coolant refill procedure, which can be found at http://home.earthlink.net/~vqfaq/.
no bleeding necessary, just run the engine and refill the radiator/reservoir back to capacity.

capillary refill action. Squeeze the person's fingernails. They will go white. If blood is flowing, they will go from white to light red.
Refill prn means refill as needed.
