SOURCE: 93 lincoln mark v111 antifreeze radiator, how do i

When you top off the radiator you fill it to the neck where the cap goes. When the engine heats up the antifreeze eventually will distribute and the excess will go into the overflow bottle.

After the car cools, it will draw the antifreeze from the overflow tank into the radiator. Then check the level line on the overflow bottle(tank) for the normal amount of antifreeze per marks on the bottle.

You should have your radiator cap checked for its pressure rating. Use the type of cap which allows for an overflow system. The older caps would not let the antifreeze flow both ways.

I have just replaced the radiator on my 2003 Suzuki grand vitara 1.6. Can anyone tell me how much water I should fill it with and the ratio of anti-freeze please? Any help gratefully received.

50/50 or 60/40

Coolant to Distilled Water (from supermarket) not tap water

Have to use the correct coolant for a Suzuki of that year

One gallon of coolant & two gallons of distilled water should
give you enough to mix small amounts to 50/50 or I use 60/40

Almost ALL coolant you will see in ANY store is really GM Dexcool
Spec & NOT for your car
The yellow Prestone one size fits all--- is NOT true -- Read the back & compare to dexcool That is what it is chemical wise

Your going to have to use Zerex Asian or a Dealer purchased brand
Possibly Zerex G-05
I have not researched the correct fluid for you,you do that

The Old Green Fluids are not sold in many places any more,
for I assume stupid state environmental reasons & transport
issues from state to state

NO ONE anywhere will be telling you the real truth, because they don't know the answer,not even the professional repair shops,they don't care,to them one size fits all

When i leave my grand vitara on idle it pumps all coolant out of the rad into over flow bottle

Is your cooling fan coming on? Make sure that it is. If not check fuses, relay and fan. The fan should come on and draw air through the radiator to cool the coolant if this isn't happening then the vehicle will overheat and as the coolant expands in an effort to relief the pressure the valve on the radiator cap will allow coolant to exit the radiator and go into the reservoir. This would be a good time to service your thermostat and change the radiator cap

If it's overheating but not losing coolant,replace the thermostat.If it's overheating from loss of coolant,replace the radiator cap with one that is the proper pressure for that engine.Rigger says luck toya.

Radiator water dirty

Probably hasn't had a flush for a long time. You need to drain, flush then refil the cooling system with new coolant / water mix

Has anyone heard gurgling noise coming from under the dash console of your 2004 Avalon. It almost sounds like water going through a line with air in it or something. Also have a clicking noise coming...

Sounds like air in the system for the heater core. I had a mechanic tell me once to take the radiator cap off (when car is cold) then start the car with it off for about 25 minutes. Try to park so that the front end of the car is higher than the back. The air bubble will work it's way up to the top and come out. The coolant may splash a little when the air bubble does rise and come out. You will notice that the coolant level in the radiator is a bit lower. When you notice that, shut the car off, top off the radiator with coolant, put the cap back on and you shouldn't notice the gurgling anymore. You can repeat it again as needed. I've done this on my own vehicle and it did get rid of the rushing water noise. Hope this helps.

I have a suzuki grand vitara 2004 1.6 petrol and i have put a new thermostat on car and the temperature gauge is still rising when i run the car for aprox 1 hour and do 70 miles per hour, the fans are...

First check your fuses and relays for the fan. Next, you can run 12V directly from the battery to the fan, if it operates, you can eliminate a bad fan as a possibility of the cause and then test the fan's thermostat switch. If the radiator is sufficiently corroded it will also cause the symptoms you describe since part of the cooling surfaces will be effectively blocked off. The chance that the water pump is causing the problem is very slim. You can verify the pumps operation by starting the engine with the radiator cap off and allowing it to get up to operating temperature. When it's at operating temperature, you should see the coolant flowing through the radiator; it's the water pump that causes the flow through the radiator. If you see the coolant flowing, your pump should be fine.

I have just replaced my water pump,radiator and radiator cap on my BMW 93 ,318 i but if i dont drive with the air con on the temp gauge goes to red and the motor cooks. The water in the radiator is boiling...

You say water, do you actually mean coolant?
Or are you putting straight water into it?
You may need to check the mixing level.
It should have a mix of 50/50.
50% water and 50% antifreeze/coolant.
Lot's of coolants will come pre-diluted, which is usually always the best way to go.

I hope this helps!
