8 Answers

you may want to do a drain flush,refill with collent,sounds like their is more water than antifreeze in the cooling system.if you live where it gets down right cold,especally at night,do not put the 50/50 pre mix in it,1 gallon of pure antifreeze,top off with distelled water or 2 gal of antifreeze.

thanks ill do that when i get off the rd again it aint going to hurt it is it?

NO,As long as it has some antifreeze in it.

the ticking u here is just a lifter tap,where it has been setting,oil and filter change plus a bottle of stp oil treatment should cure the problem,did you do the antifreze change.
