It sounds like you have a leak in your cooling system either from the reserve tank (that you fill) or in your radiator. If it is the (generally) plastic tank, you want to see if you can check it for leaking and them seal it (the auto-part store should be able to help you find something). If it is your radiator, this is a little more complicated and could require replacement. However, their are liquid formulas you can buy (from the auto-parts store) that may help to seal the hole or crack, depending on how severe it is. Just try to determine (visually) where the leak is coming from and consult with a professional on the best way to seal it.Regards ~ JD

SOURCE: loss of coolant (leak) in the radiator. causing overheating

They can be a real challenge to find, especially if the leak is buried somewhere that you really can't see. Then after driving around, the fan and wind spread the coolant all over , making it even more difficult to locate the source. 1st try 'stop leak' which can be purchased at parts stores, you might get lucky and it will fix the problem. Sounds like a good idea to replace the radiator if it's rusty. You could have a leak at the head gasket, or even a freeze out plug on the block. A couple of suggestions to help locate it: pick up a small mirror at a parts store, the kind that folds and extends. Get the car up in the air so you have plenty of room underneath to move around, and securely supported so the car won't fall on you. Clean off any drips or visible coolant. Start the car and crawl around with your mirror and a good flashlight, and wait for evidence of coolant to appear. It's a matter of patience and poking around to find it. Good luck.

Trans fluid ed in coolant bottle did flush and two week brown oily goo in bottle


Flush coolant system again. Do you have a brown sludge in the oil. Do this get Preston coolant flush, drain radiator drain coolant tank, fill radiator with water, add the Preston run vehicle for about 15 min remove lower radiator hose from radiator. This will allow all residue to be removed from engine. Replace radiator hose. Fill radiator with appropriate amount of coolant. Disconnect tank from system and let water run through tank until it is clear. Reconnect tank and you should be good. Unless you have oil and coolant mixed which means a blown head gasket or cracked block

2002 bonneville coolant leak


check water pump hose and the pump. a clogged thermostat can cause pressure build up and bust hoses. and of course take radiator out and check for lower hoses and crackes. if no luck, put water in radiator and run car and check for leaks. small cracks in aluminum are hard to see but expands when radiator gets hot.

COOLANT-ADDING ADDITIONAL
Do not remove radiator cap to add coolant to system. When adding coolant to maintain correct level, do so at coolant reserve/overflow tank. Use a 50/50 mixture of ethylene glycol antifreeze containing Alugard 340-2 y and low mineral content water.
Remove radiator cap only for testing or when refilling system after service. Removing cap unnecessarily can cause loss of coolant and allow air to enter system, which produces corrosion.

COOLANT LEVEL CHECK
The cooling system is closed and designed to maintain coolant level to top of radiator.
WARNING: DO NOT OPEN RADIATOR DRAINCOCK WITH ENGINE RUNNING OR WHILE ENGINE IS HOT AND COOLING SYSTEM IS UNDER PRESSURE.
Remove radiator cap. The coolant level should be to top of radiator. If not, and if coolant level in coolant recovery bottle is at ADD mark, check for:
  • An air leak in coolant reserve/overflow tank or its hose
  • An air leak in radiator filler neck
  • Leak in pressure cap seal to radiator filler neck
TRANSMISSION and OIL LEVEL CHECK TUBES
