How to add Coolant to a Dodge Caravan


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 One

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

Step Two

Remove the radiator cap from the filler tube.

Step Three

Place a funnel into the filler tube.

Step Four

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 Five

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

Step Six

Close the radiator cap.
