yes, a mixture of coolant and gas can and will ruin your motor
If it's a 4 cylinder 2.3 liter motor the coolant gauge will have one wire. The terminal on the sensor will appear to look like it has threads on it.
Complex motor tics appear slower and more deliberate than simple motor tics
It is possible for coolant to leak out between the motor and transmission, if a freeze plug has been leaking. I had this problem on an old International Travelall I had. The motor will need to be pulled.
This is used to keep the motor from overheating and from freezing. Thus the name "antifreeze" and "coolant".
Fill the vehicle with coolant and leave the filler cap off. Start the vehicle and keep adding fluid as the coolant level drops. When the motor is warm enough for the thermostat to open up you will see the coolant level drop quickly. Put in more coolant until it is full then shut off the motor and put the filler cap back on.
The back side of the motor below the intake and coolant bypass tube
If it is mixing coolant with the engine oil, NO!
There is no coolant cap. You add through the expansion chamber (opaque bubble to the left of motor.)
The Commodore requires a gycol based coolant, its uses a50% coolant, 50% water mix. Ensure the coolant you choose is a high quality and suitable for V6 motor
It cycles coolant through the engine. Heat from the engine is transferred to the coolant through a heat exchange. The heated coolant then cycles through the system to the radiator, where heat from the coolant undergoes another heat exchange, transferring heat from the coolant to the air which passes through the radiator. Heat will also transfer from the motor to the air forced over the motor by the engine fan.
coolant leak between motor and transmission indicates you have a leaky freeze plug in the rear of the engine block
No, you run the risk of destroying the motor.
it is probably your water pump
Never put just straight water in your motor. You want to top off your radiator first then top off your coolant in the reservoir. Water will rust your motor from the inside out.
Freeze plug at the rear of the motor. Between the transmission and the motor.
the coolant sensor is at the back of the motor on the passenger side
Yes, unless a cylinder has filled with coolant but, running an engine with coolant mixing with motor oil is not good.
Not the motor, but the wash contains detergent that is not good in the coolant fluids. You should drain and flush the coolant system and replace it with water and antifreeze mixed to the recommended proportions. Do this as soon as possible, if you have indeed used screen wash instead of antifreeze by mistake.
It rises in water Source(s) - i did that for my science project in 5th grade ADDED: It does indeed, ending up floating on the water's surface because oil is less dense than water.
The coolant add/overfill jug is on the left side of the motor when your looking at it. Add coolant up the closest line towards the top, and only when the engine is cold.
