What is used of distal water?

Distilled water is the preferred liquid to refill automotive batteries that have been in service a while. While some batteries are sealed tops and cannot be serviced, there are still some batteries with accessible cells. Use distilled water in a proper battery service dispenser to avoid overfilling. Distilled water is preferred because it lacks the chemicals and impurities found in ordinary tap water that can shorten a battery's life. Sulphuric acid should never be added to a battery that has already been placed in service. The pH level of the acid is too high for anything other than a brand new virgin battery. And as always, safety first! Gloves, goggles and apron.

How much antifreeze do you need for a Nissan cabstar?

Pour in a 50/50 mix of the correct type antifreeze and distilled water. Your owners manual will list the total capacity and proper coolant to use.

Why does antifreeze come out when the car is hot?

It has expanded as far as it can inside of the engine so it has to go somewhere! See if you have enough anti frez ( what till the engine cools down first ) or make sure if the mixture of water/anti frez is correct 30% water to 70% anti freeze . Check your thermostat. If the coolant is coming out of a weep-hole on your water pump, pump is bad. Check the hose clamps, soft hoses. plug up radiator, heater core. Even if you have had service done on your car, you may have and air pocket in your system, they didn't burp the system right, take it back. also make sure the antifreeze, "if a mix yourself fluid" has distilled water mixed with it. distilled water has a higher boiling rate than water with impurities, thus preventing boil out.
