Prestone Radiator Products

 

 

HEAVY DUTY STOP LEAK

Product Description

Seals radiators, Heater cores, gaskets and hose connections in cars, trucks and tractors fast! Specially formulated to be effective in all cooling systems

Instructions

1)  Remove radiator cap when engine is cool, be sure radiator is nearly full.  Then pour contents into radiator.  Replace radiator cap.
2)  Run engine at idle, with heater "on", until leak stops.
3)  With engine off and cool remove radiator cap and check fluid level.  Add solution of 50-70% Prestone Advanced Formula Antifreeze/Coolant if needed.  Replace radiator cap.

Technology

Leaks in cooling systems are often a result of coolant neglect.  Heavy Duty Stop Leak is formulated with organic fibers to work on cooling systems found in cars, trucks and tractors.  Its blend of dry sealing particles quickly seals leaks from openings as large as 0.012” X 0.5”.


Antifreeze/Coolant Tester

Product Description

A professional do-it-yourself tester that easily tests for anti-freeze/anti-boil protection. Allows visual inspection for rust and sediment.

Instructions

1) Test when engine is cool.

2) Draw up fluid, inspect. If rusty or dirty, drain, flush and refill cooling system.

3) Pointer must be totally immersed. Fluid should be level with horizontal line at top of tester. Tap to dislodge air bubbles. Pointer shows degree of protection.

Technology

It is important to maintain your antifreeze/coolant at the proper concentration to provide good corrosion protection as well as prevent freeze-ups and boil overs.  This tester provides a quick and easy method to safely collect a sample and measure coolant concentration.  It also allows a visual inspection of the antifreeze while you test it.  This is a low cost way to check the condition of the antifreeze/coolant in your vehicle when you need to.


Flush N Fill Kit $18.95

Product Description

 

Professionally backflushes cooling systems of most cars and light trucks on the road today. Easily installs antifreeze/coolant in minutes.

Instructions

Install

1) Make sure engine is cool, then loosen radiator cap to release any pressure and re-tighten cap.  If radiator has no cap, loosen and re-tighten the pressure cap on the expansion tank, if so equipped.  If it has a conventional recovery system (a non-pressurized plastic bottle) and no radiator cap accessibility, vent and reseal the system via the cap covering the thermostat.

2) Two heater hoses extend from the fire wall to the engine, in both front and rear wheel drive vehicles.  Hose #1 runs from fire wall to water pump.  Hose #2 runs from fire wall to top of engine.  This is the heater inlet hose.  Ask a qualified mechanic if uncertain.

3) TEE should be installed in a relatively straight section of the inlet hose, away from hot exhaust system.  Cut heater inlet hose; install TEE that provides snug fit in heater inlet hose.  Remaining TEES should be discarded.  Check for leaks after installation.

4)  Tighten hose clamps with screwdriver.  Do not over tighten.

Backflush

1)  Make sure engine is cool, remove radiator cap and Flushing TEE Cap.  Attach Back-Flow Preventer Coupler to Flushing TEE and water supply line (black end to tee, Yellow end to garden hose).  If vehicle has no cap on the radiator, it is possible to back flush by disconnecting the upper radiator hose at the radiator.

2)  When appropriate, snap Splash Tube into radiator neck and open radiator drain.  Turn on water to garden hose.  Check to see that liquid is emerging from the Deflector Tube or radiator hose fitting before proceeding.

3)  Shut off engine, then turn off water.  Remove splash tube, hose, and coupler.  After draining the radiator, close radiator drain.    If engine has a coolant recovery system, flush out coolant reservoir and fill to proper level with 50% Prestone Antifreeze/Coolant.

Caution:  Do not leave hose and coupler connected to TEE while using a cooling system cleaner

Fill

1) Determine how much Prestone® Antifreeze/Coolant to install to achieve a minimum 50%, maximum 70% solution for year round protection.

2) With cap off TEE, pour the full amount of Antifreeze/Coolant into radiator, expansion tank, or thermostat housing opening.  Water and slight amount of diluted Antifreeze/Coolant will be displaced from flushing TEE.

3) After adding antifreeze/coolant, quickly replace Flushing TEE Cap.  Make sure gasket is in place.  Tighten securely by hand.  Replace radiator cap.

4) Run engine for 10 minutes after reaching normal operating temperatures, then shut engine off and allow to cool.  Add more Antifreeze/Coolant to properly fill the system.  Replace cap tightly

Technology

 

Rust and dirty coolant that circulates in your car’s cooling system can lead to a clogged radiator, resulting in overheating and engine damage.  

Draining the radiator alone does not sufficiently remove old coolant, as the radiator may contain 40% or less of the coolant.  

The Prestone® Flush N’ Fill Kit allows you to professionally flush the COMPLETE COOLING SYSTEM, not just the radiator, in one easy process.
