How to Add Coolant to a Dodge Caravan

by Zyon Silket

When you have routine maintenance done on your Dodge Caravan, the shop usually checks vital fluids such as antifreeze. However, if you are a do-it-yourself mechanic your Caravan rarely sees a repair garage. This means the responsibility of topping off the coolant falls to you. Fortunately, the process for adding coolant to your Dodge Caravan is simple and is a basic part of the maintenance process.

Step 1

Open the engine hood and prop it with the hood prop.

Step 2

Remove the radiator cap from the filler tube.

Step 3

Place a funnel into the filler tube.

Step 4

Fill a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and distilled water into the radiator until the fluid level reaches the top of the filler tube. Remove the funnel.

Step 5

Start the engine and allow it to idle for 5 minutes. This pushes air from the coolant system.

Close the radiator cap.
