    You fill it at the surge tank, it will be a plastic bottle.

The radiator expansion tank will be located in the top left or right corner of the bonnet bay and should have a yellow cap.
please rate this advice.

Check the cooling fan, thermostat or radiator. I'd start with the basics and check to make sure cooling fans kick on. If they do, remove the thermostat and recheck. If it still fails and bottom and lower radiator hoses are hot then you have a plugged radiator

I want to top up my radiator on my ford fiesta as hfater is not working


Get antifreeze mix ready, in hand and open. Make sure car hasn't been driven and is cool. Take off radiator cap. Open overflow tank cap too. Start car and quickly top it off and cap it. Fill overflow to line and drive. The level should adjust itself. If heater still isn't hot enough, repeat when engine is cool.

My ford fiesta finesse 1.3 enduoro 2000 over heats aster about 15 20 mins of running it its not the fan we have checked this also no a thermer stat and no air lock anyone have any idea


try driving it with the heater of full heat and see what happens ,also check to see if engine is pressurising on the rad cap ,start engine with the rad cap off and see if it starts to bubble and the level rise ,if so its a head gasket as most engines when they get to a certain mileage the head gasket will deteriorate ,this engine has a cast iron head so it shouldnt be corroded or warped in any way but the gaskets to rot away regardless .Now if its not building up pressure and the engine doesnt overheat with the heater on full heat and full air blow then renew the radiator

Check for low coolant, you might also have a sticking thermostat. Alot of fords get air pockets, make sure if it needs coolant to let it run for about 10-15 min with the radiator cap off.

Overheating


You have an air lock in the cooling system.
Do this: pull upper radiator hose off the radiator leaving it connected to the block, pour coolant into hose until filled ( you might have to do it to the radiator also). Once filled reconnected hose back to the radiator, then fill resevior to proper level. Start car turn heater on full. Let car run with cap off resevior until it starts pulling coolant in. Once warmed up shut car off let cool. Check fluid level again.
