How many liters of coolant does a V12 engine take?

That will vary greatly among different engine designs. Some V12's displace over 24 Liters others are small as 4 Liters (relatively small haha). If you are changing your coolant then make sure the bottom radiator hose is attached and fill the engine block with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water through the thermostat housing (thermostat removed of course) reinstall the thermostat, connect the upper radiator hose and fill the radiator with the 50/50 mix. Close the radiator cap and run the engine for 5 mins, shut her down and refill the radiator. Job done! -CJP

Your 2000 elantra has done 160k and just this week the water in the radiator has started boiling and the temperature is almost hitting red can it be the thermostate the radiator or the head gasket?
