Drained radiator fluid and replaced it with the pink dextrin fluid and now it keeps stalling out when I have to slow down or come to a stop
I have drove my 2006 Grand Prix for thousands and thousands of miles and
never changed radiator fluid. A friend said it looked really rusty so he drained
it last night and refilled it, but now this morning it starting bogging out and
then quit running all together. I had it toed home and I'm a single mother and
ow don't have any idea of wha to do next
Putting new antifreeze into the system wouldn't in most cases stop the car from running. It's probably another issue. Did he replace the fluid with Dex-Cool antifreeze? Then you should be fine. Is your check engine light on?
You should be careful when working on 21st Century cars- if you put the wrong coolant in, it can mess things up- things are a little more complicated these days-
If the car overheated due to low coolant level the engine could have seized up. Were there any warning lights on when the car quit?
