Open the petcock valve on the bottom of the radiator. Start the vehicle and turn the heater on high. Remove the radiator cap and insert a hose with fresh water running. continue this for as long as it takes the water coming out of the petcock to become clear. It could take an hour or more. Once the water is clear, shut the vehicle off, and let the rest of the water drain out of the petcock valve.
Restart the vehicle and add fresh coolant. Leave the radiator cap off and let the vehicle run until the coolant stays at the top of where the radiator cap goes, this will ensure you have bled all of the air out of the cooling system and there is enough coolant in the system. Replace the cap and you are good to go.

Please remember to rate this fix.

SOURCE: water coming back from radiator bottle

Hi Pete

This sounds like the problem could become very serious and engine damage may eventually occur . I am not a mechanic but had similar problems with my Fiat Uno a few days ago (eventually the head gasket blew) and the same scenario with the Nissan Sentra. First check the following: Does the temperature rise more than the normal mark under normal operating conditions? Is the radiator cap in order? When checking the oil dipstick is there any signs of water and oil mixing together? Lastly is there excessive steam coming from the exhaust system? If so, you could be looking at a failed head gasket. Hopefully this is not the case and there is only an airlock in the cooling system thus being solved by checking and fulling and topping up the radiator itself (if possible) with a mixture of water & antifreese whilst the vehicle is idling - and not like i did on the Sentra - by constantly filling up the coolant reservoir and the water "blows" past the cap ......hope this helps.

Good luck.

Windsheild fluid runs out of the resivor

Most washer bottles have the pump assembly mounted directly in the bottom of the bottle and after several years the seal on the shaft between the pump impeller and the motor can become worn and hard and start to leak. Also the tube on the outlet of the pump could be loose or has become disconnected allowing any fluid to run out. To check, remove washer bottle from vehicle (you may have to remove other components to access the attaching bolts) and check security of outlet tube. If split or loose cut a bit off the end and re attch to outlet. If the seal on the pump shaft has been leaking and allowing water into the motor, there will be some corrosion on the inside and minimal lubrication on the bearings. You could try dismantling the pump and applying some water resistant grease to the shaft seal and bearings, but it would only be a temporary fix. Best option for this fault would be to replace the pump motor assembly.

Washer fluid reservoir will not fill. leaks under car. cant hear the motor when trying to wash windsheild. cant find the part to replace help

You may have a hole in the reservoir bottle or in the tube from the bottle to the pump.
Another possibility is that the tube has become disconnected from the bottle.

If you don't hear the motor, it may not be running or lost power.
