SOURCE: 96 jimmy is making a bubbling sound in the front

The heater core is at that location. When cooled down check the coolant level. If its filled you may have an air pocket in the heater lines that need to be bleeded. If so start the engine when cold and idle for 15 to 20 minutes. Then slightly loosen the top radiator hose clamp till you hear a hissing noise. If a single formed wired clamp is there replace it with a worm driven clamp. Now as I stated before loosen it gently & wait till the hissing quits and coolant appears only and tighten back down. The bubbling noise should quit. If not the heater core has a prblem such as being plugged up somewhat. If not attended to it will get worst and leak inside your vehicle

SOURCE: water leaking from under the hood

If it is pure water, it is probably condensation from the air conditioner. If it is engine coolent, it could be a slow leak that will take time before it is low enough to overheat. Take note of the color and feel of the fluid. If it is orange or green and oily, it is coolent. If it is water, than it is condensation, unless you only put water in your radiator.

Check the upper radiator hose by touching it after you have run the car for awhile to see if it is hot. If so then the water is circulating in the system, if not then the upper radiator hose will be cold and the thermostat is stuck. replace the thermostat and your problem will fixed. Be sure to disconnect the negative ground wire from battery before you attempt to work on coolant system. hope this will help you.

SOURCE: just installed a radiator and

If you did not replace the radiator cap, replace it, it may not be sealing. If the cap was replaced and assumed good, and its pushing air into the overflow bottle then it is indeed overheating and you may have a head gasket leaking. A shop can do a "block check" where they use a fluid to check the cooling system for combustion gases, this fluid is blue, if it turns yellow then you may have a head gasket problem.

If your malibu has the 3400 engine in it, it could very easily be the lower intake manifold gasket leaking. If there is exhause bubbling out of the coolant reservoir, it could be a head gasket leaking. Both are expensive jobs, so my advise would be to find a competent mechanic to figure out which one it is for sure before having anything done.

They may have used a chemical flush when they drained the system during it's service. It is normal to have some bubbles sometimes. Are you having overheating issues, heater not working, anything of this nature? Turn the heater on during normal operating temperature and drive around the block. Now, since it is hot outside, one trip should be sufficient. Don't kill yourself, lol. Look under the hood and see if this may have cured it. To have some bubbles is not catastrophic. As long as you are not having any issues, carry on. Please let me know if you are having any issues.

Aiming headlights

if you don't see little bubble levels near the headlight under the hood then you must have them aligned with an optical aimer, if you do have the bubble guages then park the car on a level pad and set the bubbles to center with the little adjusting screws near them.
