Hi Dennis, If you're sure that the coolant is leaking from the radiator, replace it. If the cooling system is leaking somewhere else, have the cooling system inspected by asking for a cooling system pressure check. After locating the source of the problem attend as required. Areas of interest are 1) The radiator. 2) Radiator pressure cap. 3) Broken or cracked hoses or leakages from where each fits. 4) Water pump 5) Core plugs fitted into engine block and cylinder head. 6) Cabin climate system. (Radiator inside cabin of vehicle) Keep me informed as to your progress. Regards John

I'm trying to perform a radiator drain (flush) on my 1999 Buick Century Limited. I need to know how.


drain raditor fluid then take off upper and lower hoses and put your house water hose in lower raditor hose and turn on water and let run for about 5 mins. to flush out raditor.
then run in top hose to flush back then lower hose again. that should clean it out.

THE GAGE IS SHOWING HOT AND IT RADATOR STILL HAS A LOT OF WATER


The anitfreeze might not be good enough and the coolant is frozen or slushly so it does'nt circulate. The therostate can be stuck or the raditor fans could be bad. With the gauge hot is the raditor hot too? All over? The raditor can be partly plugged. The raditor needs to be brimming full and the recovery coolant tank needs to bein the hot to cold range.. Water is'nt the only thing that's in the coolant as without antifreeze it'll freeze and not circulate.

WHEN I TURN OFF MY 1999 PLYMOUTH BREEZE THE WATER BOILS IN THE OVERFLOW BUT THE INSIDE TEMPERATURE GAUGE RUNS COOL. IT DOESN'T ACT LIKE A HEAD GASKET.I AM NOT LOSING ANY COOLANT.


Two things it might be the cars raditor fan doesn't work, or the therostate is sticking. ( the gauge does'nt have to be right) the other thing might it need a new raditor cap. Most all cars pust raditor fluild to the overflow when thier shut off if it's low it'll be gas not coolant. the hose between the cap and the tank may have a small leak and it's not sucking the coolant out of the resivoir back to the raditor. The system is designed to be completly full(no air). If you can remove the cap with the car cool and it's not full clear to overflowing the cap or the hose is bad. Being it's nor leaking I'd go with the cap. Get the kind that came with the car not one with a lever.

could be a head gasket (coolant going into exhaust or into oil) pull oil dipstick does it look light brown like the color of a chcolale milkshake if yes u have bad head gasket does exhaust blow white smoke? if yes bad headgasket ? pull radiitor cap off let van run for while does water come out of raditor at a fast rate if yes (possiable ) bad head gasket
also could have leak your not seing look closely around where intake meets heads notice any water trails or see any water leaking ? if yes bad intake gaskets look closely around water pump any trails of water there ? if so bad water pump also check closely around seams of raditor for water trails
after all this u dont see any thing might need to take it to a shop and have it pressure tested (some leaks will only show up under pressure) most shops won' t charge much if anything for this service

When I'm stopping and the car is on. The temperature when up


Sounds like the raditor fan has stopped working. Cheak to see that it does and if it does then wash the raditor with soap and water trying to blow water though from the engine side out the front as maybe ait can't get though cause of bugs or dirt. after that the raditor can be flushed if it's not too dirty but modern raditors if not flushed before you have troble need to be replaced as they don't flush well after they stop up.
