I use toyota yaris 2007 model. after an hour drive, i realised it was not pulling. a check on the radiator i noticed that the water has been moving into the reserve container getting full. any help

Get the codes read to see if any sensors are unhappy
the resivoir filling up could be the expansion of the coolant or the head gasket could be failing blowing the fluid out of the water jacket

Put water in radiator

Usually, all you need to do is fill the radiator, leave the radiator cap off, start car and let it idle until engine reaches normal operating temperature, and the thermostat opens (upper hose will get hot or warm). Then shut off the car, top up radiator and overflow bottle, replace cap, and you are good to go.
I own a Sentra and was recommended when filling the radiator to keep the car running while filling to help expel air. Also many cars have a bleed valve on top of or near the thermostat housing which should be open while filling with coolant, and as soon as coolant starts coming out the bleeder valve, it should be closed, and then continue filling radiator. If you don't have such a bleed valve, and you still think air might be trapped in the engine, you could find a coolant temperature sensor or sender unit that is at or near the top of the coolant passages or areas of the engine where coolant is found, crack it open to make sure only coolant and no air comes out.
The Sentra engine is easy to trap air, but by running engine when filling, and waiting until thermostat opened before shutting off and capping the radiator, I had no trouble filling the coolant-no air was trapped.
Good luck.

How do you know which head or gasget is blown/

Try this to see if helps you figure this out. Try filling up the radiator with water. Start your engine with the radiator cap off look for bubbles the bigger the bubbles the worse the leak. Look for tan colored oil on the dipstick. When oil mixes with water it turn a creamy tan color.

Car keeps overheating

Assuming the engine is ok, no leaking head gasket or exhaust problem, you need to know if the radiator fan comes on when the engine reaches 225 degrees. It should also come on when you turn the ac on if the ac works.
Its also possible you have air in the cooling system.

Offmy 2000 oldsmobile alero over heats n shuts off

if it's a V6 then you prob have intake gskts/head gskts leaking coolant to cylinder and causing it to hydro lock, filling cylinder with coolant and filling radiator with cylinder pressure causing coolant to blow out of radiator and reduces your cooling of engine.....see a mechanic looking at a big repair bill or engine swap

What 's make the water to leak from the engine when filing up the radiator

The first thing to do is look straight up from where the water is dripping on the ground, on the top part of the motor or radiator, sometimes it is easy to see where the water is coming from and sometimes it hidden. After this start checking the hoses for water, also when filling the radiator, it can be going out an overflow, running down because of filling the radiator to fast. There is probably (maby not) a vent screw on the thermostat housing, which would need to be opened turning it counter clockwise a couple turns to let air out of the system while you are filling the radiator. When liquid starts coming out around that screw ,,tighten the screw back. If water is coming from the end of the motor on the passenger side and you can't tell exactly where, the water pump is located on this end of the motor and can leak out slow or fast or more when you are driving. This is a general idea of what to check first and there is a lot of possibilities. Try to pinpoint the area at least where you think the water is coming from. It can have a leak in the radiator, thermostat housing, freeze plug, head gasket, bad radiator cap and more. Those water pumps do go bad.

Car run hot possible radiator got a hole and/or water pump coing bad.put water in it...water blows back at you.change thermo stat.

it cant be hot when you do it . you have to start the filling prosess when its will get a air pocket that wont go away. air pocket causes steam. you have to fill as the car warms up.

Bmw316i 1997 car is over heting

make sure your engine cooling fan is working, check to see if your thermostat is staying closed and not allowing circulation in your engine, do this by squeezing the radiator hose when the car is hot, if it is hard to squeeze the thermostat is most likely the issue

Engine overheating-----1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme 3.4 liter v/6

There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck

Leaks and overheats really fast

hi it sounds like your headgaskets blown you need to take your rad cap off fill with water start the engine see if you see any bubbles in the water or if the water blows straight out its a good indication the headgaskets gone the thing on the right hand side is the expansion tank overflow if this blows water out even when cold the headgaskets gone if you see no bubbles in the water change your thermostat the two fans on the rad have nothing to do with your a/c if that doesn,t work may need pressurising yates210456
