Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
We bought a 2002 chev cavalier for our daughter. Had it for 2 weeks and it got front ended. Got it fixed and now we have more problems than before. My question is on the coolant serge tank should there be a hose hooked up to something in case it starts to overheat? My daughter went on a small highway trip and the engine overheated and there was hardly any coolant left in the tank. There is a hose there but it isn't hooked up to anything and just pours out onto the ground. Is this right? Or is there something missing?
Please let us know what is right. Thanks Dawn
Yes. the hose closest to the cap over flows onto the ground. so the bottle will not bust if pressure is to high. if it is a v6 engine you have to bleed the air out of the system when refilling. follow the upper radiator hose to the engine there will be a bleeder screw open bleeder fill coolant bottle. engine off close screw start engine for a minute shut off engine and repeat several times until you can feel the heater inside the car starting to get warm. good luck.
