Soon, i'll change and rinse the dexcool coolant and my question is:

It is a problem if my coolant is almost pure, for mechanical parts ( water pump, radiator... ):WTF:

It doesn't hurt any parts, but it doesn't work properly unless mixed with water. The best ratio for boiling point and freeze point is 70% coolant to 30% water, but 50/50 is the accepted standard and works quite well. You are only wasting money and inviting problems by using pure coolant.

Other question, do you know the total amount of coolant in the engine and radiator ? About 11 liters ? Thanks...

I'd be surprised if it took that much, I usually see about 2 gallons in total.
