The best thing to do is find the cap for the coolant and just twist it open.

I drive a Camry V6 3.0L Every time I top up the coolant to the recommended level and after driving the contents in the reservoir boil over and spill out.


There may be a slight head gasket leak to the coolant jacket, not large enough to overheat the engine. It is normal for some coolant to escape at operating temp, but not lots, and it should cool down to about the recommended level again.

Something is pressurising the coolant jacket. Have it tested for the presence of combustion gasses in the coolant. This is a simple test.

Another thing, that model often develops a crack in the radiator plastic top tank. It is not the problem here, but worth knowing.

How to properly bleed the cooling system


Allow the vehicle to run with the rad cap off adding coolant as necessary until the upper and lower rad hoses are hot indicating the thermostat is open. This can become a messy job as trapped air will push coolant out and make for a good coolant spill. There is a special filling funnel that attaches to the radiator neck available at most part stores that helps to illiminate the amount of coolant that will come out and spill

2004 Dodge Durango 5.7 hemi over heating i have replaced radiator,fan clutch, hoses, radiator cap, 3 thermostats and water pump whats next


Sounds like head gasket has gone. Hot gas from the fuel combustion is being forced through holes in the head gasket into the cooling system, causing hot bubbles in the coolant, sniff the bubbles blowing out of the reservoir, does it smell like fuel?

I bought a radiator cap because the radiator spill water from the cap, but the water is spilling yet. why?


Worst case scenario is I am afraid that you might have a cylinder head gasket that has developed a leak into the water system. Run the car (Cold) with the radiator cap off and see if water and air bubbles out of the filler.

My heater blows cold air when car is stopped. i have installed a new water pump and the radiator is full of water.


you still have air trapped in the cooling system. Get front of car as high up as you can on a hill. Cold engine - loosen radiator cap, fill with 50/50 antifreeze mix. Start engine and run until upper radiator hose is hot (thermostat open). Engine should burp air and maybe spill some coolant, that's ok. Once burped, tighten cap, shut off engine and let it cool down while keeping the reservoir full. It will **** coolant out of reservoir as it cools. Keep it full.

If still cold air, take to a shop that has evac/fill equipment; they will **** air out and repalce with coolant. About $80.

I put a new thermostat on my 2005 grand dodge caravan yesterday, today I have no heat. Some said vapor lock, where is the air drainage on this model?


there is no air bleeder, It will bleed it self . Or you could put a pan under radiator to catch coolant spill, Put pan under radiator, remove radiator cap, start engine,let engine run,have a 50% coolant mix on hand, when engine warms up the thermostat will open and allow flow of coolant. just as the thermostat starts to open air will release causing coolant to spill over filler cap inlet, this is normal, the pan is so you don't waste coolant or make a mess. in a few moments as the thermostat opens to full position the coolant level will fall in radiator, at this time you will fill radiator untill it will take no more,put cap on radiator and use clean fluid you caught in pan or coolant in jug or whatever you have it in and fill the coolant reservoir to fill line. i hope you have heat now ! check reservoir again the next day, if low fill and you should be good !! do this procedure when engine is cold,never remove a hot radiator cap. but if you were too, make sure you squeeze upper radiator hose, IF IT IS HARD OR UNDER PRESSURE, DO NOT REMOVE !!!! If you can squeeze the hose then put a rag over cap and remove slowly a little pressure or coolant might spill but should be minimal. I have alot of experience in this and severe burns are possible to the inexperienced !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coolant spilling through the top of the radiator, just replaced a thermostat, there are no obvious leaks, what could be the problem?


Is the coolant coming out of the overflow tube, or is it bypassing the cap itself? How long did it take for coolant to come out, did it get warmed up completely, or did it do it immediately after starting? My first guess would be that the cap either isn't on all the way or the rubber gasket got torn or folded over or something like that. Check the cap for damage.
