Is it possible to flush the coolant system and could this had happened due to the car using the orange antifreeze and when I bought more at auto zone I told the guy what I needed and ask was this orange he...


Orange antifreeze is extended use antifreeze and usually can remain in a vehicle 4-5 years before flushing. Dexcool which is made by gm had a problem with coolant gumming up before the 4th year. Many people flushed it out and put regular green in. But then you must flush it out more often. That problem has sense been rectified. If you did not correctly bleed the air from the system before closing it up , that can cause over heating and possible knocking . If it wasn't doing it before the addition.. Have the system flushed and only use the orange that it came with ...Prestone orange is nothing but gm specified dexcool and works ok.

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus that would not heat, took to shop they flushed the system, replaced the water pump and it ran hot after thet flushed the system took it back they flushed the system again and


Did you have red antifreeze prior to the flushing? Ford engines are generally aluminium and should be using blue antifreeze which is suitable for aluminium engine blocks! I think the antifreeze is reacting to the aluminium.....re flush and use blue!

There is oil in the water and it keeps overhaeting; have flushed the hoses and it still overheats


Oil in the antifreeze means the head gasket is in need of replacement due to leaking between oil and antifreeze passages at the head.

The engine may need to be flushed out as well (antifreeze).

Check the fan to see if it operates properly.

My 2000 Chevy Blazer will not produce enough heat. The radiator has been flushed with new antifreeze added. The thermostat reaches 180 degrees.


Did you do the flush and fill yourself? did you put pure antifreeze in with distilled water at a 50/50 ratio? If your antifreeze mixture is pure or almost pure antifreeze, then it will not transfer your heat and will not heat the cab well at all.

I have a 2002 buick century custom. Apparently there is a problem with the antifreeze that was used in these vehicles. What do I need to do to repair the damage caused by this problem


You need to drain the old antifreeze and flush the entire cooling system with a commercial product such as Prestone Super Flush. After flushing according to the directions on the product you will want to fill the cooling sysstem with plain water and let it circulate through the system. Drain the system again and repeat the process until the water is clear of any antifreeze. Refill the system with the proper mixture of antifreeze. Make sure you use a quality antifreeze that is compatible with your make and model of car. The auto parts store personnel can help you select the right antifreeze. DO NOT refill it with Dexcool. That is the antifreeze that GM put in originally that is causing the problems. Dexcool not only forms a gummy sludge in the cooling system, it also attacks certain gasket materials and causes coolant to leak into the engine. Hopefully, this hasn't happened yet.

is the water pump working and circulating the antifreeze. if it is working, I would flush out the system and replace the thermostat before refilling system. you can buy radiator flush at any auto parts store. you can back flush system through radiator. just follow directions on back of flush bottle. have a good one!!

My antifreeze light came on so I pulled into a gas station and bought some universal antifreeze green in color now that I'm home my husband says I should have bought the red stuff. What is the proper color...


The Orange antifreeze called GM Dexi cool, (red to your husband LOL). It's ok you put the green antifreeze in. The difference is the Green antifreeze has a of 1 year or 30,000 miles and the Orange has a life expectancy of 5 years or 100,000 miles. Being your Lumina is 12 years old and if the Orange antifreeze has never been flushed out, most likely crystals have formed in the water jackets and passageways through out the cooling system. The crystals can be flushed out with Preston radiator flush, but will take a few flushes to ensure that most of the crystals are out. Once flushed out, replace the antifreeze with the GM Dexi cool 50/50 mix water/antifreeze. Too much water will freeze and can crack the engine block, radiator, or heater core. To much Antifreeze will gel up causing the coolant to flow slower and then the engine tends to over heat. Note, it's a good time to replace the thermostat and spend the extra money for the fail safe thermostat. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any more questions.

2002 Impala just bought toay running hot not quite


The cooling system may need to be serviced which is one of the things that is never done. The orange antifreeze has a life of 5 years and 150,000 miles and if it has never been flushed out, there may some crystal formation causing a restricted flow of antifreeze through the system. Try flushing out the cooling system with Preston radiator flush, use the dry power flush rather then the one from the bottle. Follow the instructions and replace the antifreeze with a 50/50 (water/antifreeze) mix, if you not sure how to mix it. You can buy them premixed 50/50. Too much water will boil over and too much antifreeze will gel up causing overheating. If you like you can replace the thermostat too, but that's not that easy on the 3.4 liter engines. If you go to Auto Zone you can pick up the antifreeze, radiator flush, and thermostat with the step by step instructions needed to get the job done. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any other questions you may have and good luck friend.
