Previous owner put green antifreeze in and I now know I need orange. How much orange antifreeze do I need to buy. What percentage of water to antifreeze do I need. Car tends to run hot. Any thing else I need to know?

You will need a 50/50 mix of distilled water and Dex-Cool.
The capacity is 10.5 quarts.
I would take the lower hose off and runn water through the radiator cap opening until the water comes out clean.
If it is running hot this is a good time to replace the thermostat as it may be the problem.
