When the coolant in the radiator heats up it expands and sends what cannot stay in the radiator to the "antifreeze tank". Lets say your radiator cap has a pressure rating of 16 psi. When the pressure inside of your radiator goes past 16 psi your cap will release the contents of the radiator in to the overflow tank via the small hose between the radiator cap and your "antifreeze tank".

When your radiator cools down a vacuum is created in the radiator and it will then **** the contents of your overflow tank back into the radiator.

Cause: Your overflow tank may have been too full to begin with.
:You may have gotten your car hotter than normal

When your car is cold take off your radiator cap and fill your radiator all of the way up. The after that is done fill your "antifreeze tank" to the "COLD" fill mark. This is so room is left for the overpressure contents to go to the "antifreeze tank" without spilling out of the "antifreeze" tank. After your car cools down it will pull the over pressure contents back into the radiator. This should return the level to the "cold mark on your "antifreeze" tank.

### Why is there antifreezes leaking out of bell housing on a 1999 dodge Cummings diesel engine, is it a freeze plug or a crack in block

there almost certainly will be a freezeplug in that area , but first make completely sure the coolant isn't leaking higher up and looks like from bell housing , get the area steam cleaned and make sure it's not from the head gasket or another freeze plug , 30 minutes spent doing this could save you time and money dropping the gearbox etc , hope this helps

you must have a black hole some where in your engine,lol. but seriously the fluid must have been refilling the radiator from there it must be leaking out some where, check your oil level for anti freeze contamination. check the tattle tale hole on the water pump for any leaks there.park the car and check fluid levels cold start car and let warm up untill thermostate opens then check for leaks

### Leaking antifreeze

freeze plugs pressed out by coolent not suffencient to stop freezing at your local temp. Reinstall freeze plug and look for more that may have been forcedout. common locations are sides of engine, and there are some in the very rear against the firewall.. head or engine removal neccessary.

### My 07 impala is losing anti freeze but nobody can find a leak anywhere how can i solve this problem

if cant find any spots on the ground an you're still losing anti-freeze, from my experience its always been the headgasket, if the headgasket isnt fully blown out your car will seem like its running fine an burn the antifreeze up during the combustion stroke of the engine, or it could be leaking onto the exhaust. check to see if theres any puddles of anti-freeze on top of the engine an check for leaks around the heads. if there is no puddles of leaks it could be your antifreeze is leaking into the engine an burning up during the combustion stroke

### Antifreeze leak in back of engine

Sounds like your right rear freeze plugs are probably leaking .. but first you need to make sure its not coming from up around the rear of the intake before pulling the transmission . this would be the best way to fix this problem .. thanks jerry holler if you need more.

### Dodge stratus R/T 2002 antifreeze problem(antifreeze coming out the cap)

First the "service engine soon" light is a manufacturer installed reminder for you to get an oil change or other pre-determined maintenance service done. It is different than the "check engine" light which indicates a sensor malfunction. Secondly, when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and the antifreeze or coolant is not circulating. The cooling system is a closed system and the tank that the cap is on is not an overflow tank but rather an expansion tank. This tank allows for the expanding coolant that is now hot to leave the engine coolant jackets, that won't expand, into a tank that can expand slightly. When your engine got to normal operating temp., aka.. hot, the thermostat opened allowing coolant to circulate and fill the expansion tank probably over flowing with the cap off. This is a normal operation for your car.
