Default How much coolant does it hold 02 3.8 dual heater

I have an 02 Grand Caravan with a 3.8L and dual heaters. How much does it hold? I blew a hose and had to fill with water. I need to know the capacity so I can estimate how much concentrate to use to get the ratio back.
Also, if anybody knows. How much coolant total from the radiator and engine by pulling the lower hose?

Thanks!!

Your owners manual will tell you the amount it will hold.

On my 96 grand caravan with the 3.8 v-6 dual heat and air it held one gallon of pure antifreeze, one gallon of distilled water and about 1/4 to 1/2 more gallon of of 50/50 prediluted anti freeze.

You will of course get some loss when you are burping the radiator to get the air out but this should get you in the right direction if you haven't already fixed it.

Muchos Grasias!

To be honest I would put this off until next fall but we have been having some weird weather. It stabilized in the 40-50's then a couple days ago it dipped down to 5 degrees. Don't think it is lean enough to freeze but why risk major damage.
