SOURCE: Car will not heat up

Did you "bleed " the system when you filled it with coolant ? You have to put in a some coolant and water.1/2and 1/2 mixture, Make sure it is the right coolant. All color coolant works fine.Rune the vehicle for a while . Turn off the vehicle and let it cool. Turn the radiator cap and a hiss of air will come out. Use a Rag . Be careful not to burn yourself. The pour some more coolant and water . And repeat the process until radiator is full. Some cars have a bleeder valve that you turn counter clockwise with a screwdriver near the thermostat housing or near the radiator hose .

SOURCE: external radiator resevoir full - radiator not and car is cool

Yes there is supposed to be a suction if the hose is hooked up correctly. When the car cools all the way down it is supposed to pull coolant back in to the radiator from the resevoir. If it is not woring you may not have it sealed right. Make sure the radiator cap is all the way on correctly. You may have to push down and turn it some more. It has to have a seal to create suction.

Why does my 2005 impala leak dexcool like crazy, which throws my heat off.

Do you have any dex in your oil? Have u checked all lines from resevoir rubber and metal? Check ****** lines coming from radiator? Is there dex in your ****** fluid? It's gotta be going some where. Some leaks may not show unless you throttle the engine up. Be careful working around belts and fans when engine is running.

Car is overheating after short drive (3/4 hour) had thermostat changed, put new coolant in radiator. radiator was pressure tested no leaks? car ok short drive to store. resevoir seems always overfilled...

The expansion tank will be more full when hot. Let it cool down and check it then. The level in the axpansion tank should go lower. If not then you may have a faulty radiator cap.
Also have you checked the cooling fan? Engine driven? With the engine off, spin the blade. Does it spin real freely? Continue to spin for more than a quick second? May have a bad fan clutch. They have fluid inside and the fluid can leak out of the seals after age.

Hi, i have a 1992 honda accord aerodeck with the 2.2 efi engine.. My problem is that i can only get cold air :( even when the knob is turned on full wack to hot it still only blows out cold!! I replaced...

take the radiator cap off when the engine is cold check the fluid in the radiator,if necessary add fluid to the radiator not the resevoir with the motor running and with the heater on until full leave the cap off untill the motor gets up to full heat and the thermostat is open and pulls the fluid into any unfilled cavities. Add fluid as necessary.

The coolant light remains on even after the radiator has been replace

have you checked the plug in at the coolant resevoir? if good, have you checked the fuse panel for blown fuses? low coolant light comes on because the sensor n the coolant resevoir tells the computer says there is not enough fluid in your resevior, the clear tank under the hood that connects to the radiator. you may have a bad plug in or a bad resevoir. i suggest you check fluid,,if good ,,check plug in,, if good,,replace resevoir,, hope this helps!!

97 deville overheating after having to replace coolant resevoir.Once you let it cool and cycle fluid w/cap off resevoir,it will start forcefully bubbling out and center reading starts climing...

Gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir while the motor is running indicates a blown head gasket.
If in doubt, take it to a radiator shop and ask for a combustion gas check on your radiator.

I think you need the head gasket replaced.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a brown or rusty crusty looking buildup on the sides of the radiator resevoir. I cleaned most of it out, but last week the air conditioner stopped putting out any cool air....

You need to replace the radiator, and flush the coolant system, some one added water previously and you can not add water, it must be coolant fluid, Anti-freeze.

1999 Olds Alero leaking coolant and running rough

in my experience it sounds like a head gasket problem it maybe leaking into the cylinders or could be a small leak from one of the hoses I would do a compression test just to make sure and then pressurize the entire system using radiator and coolant tester if pressure holds then its not a leak as far as the fans go just have the car running when it reaches the middle of the temp gauge it should come one if not you may need to run check on temp sensor or fan switch and fans them selves I would follow repair manual troubleshooting section on heating and cooling haynes or chiltons will do.

It might be a leak in the resevoir itself. There is a hose to allow the radiator to "****" new fluid into the radiator - check it first. It should be long enough to "freshen" the connection by cutting off a little bit and using the american style clamp.

Transmission fluid in antifreeze resevoir?

The heat exchanger in the rad header on the bottom is shot. You need a new rad, flush the coolant, change the tranny oil and filter, clean out the resevoir.
