Default How much antifreeze does an empty radiator take?

I just swapped up my radiator and i only had about a half gallon just for tonight. Si i go take a drive to the store and the needle would fluctuate from "normal" to almost red. When i hit the gas it would "cool" down. Its got to a low coolant level, right?

If I remember correct, I think mine took a little less than a full jug and I just poured the rest into the overflow tank. hth

I'd say more than likley, cause if you think about it the radiator would only be about 1/2 full. I don't think that would be enough coolent to keep the car cool.
