How to burp a raditor in a 2005 chev silverado 5.3 1500


Remove the cap from the reservoir. Fill the reservoir to the proper level. Start the vehicle and let idle until full warmed up. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the reservoir during this time and top off as necessary. Once the vehicle is fully warmed up snap the throttle a couple of times. Add more coolant if necessary.

Turn the heat on to full heat and set the blower speed to high. Make sure there is sufficient heat from the vents. If not continue snapping throttle until the temp is hot.

Put the cap back on the reservoir. Your done.

Remove raditor


The radiator would be aged or weak. Never drive the car without original anti freeze coolant. Check the radiator, radiator cap for both functions (compression and vacuum springs from under the radiator cap). Carefully examine the radiator and heater hoses and their clamps. Also carefully examine the cylinder block water lids on both sides for any corrosion. Finally pressure test the coolant system.

I cant find the raditor cap on a 2006 pontac torrent


Lots of the newer cars don't have a cap on the radiator. You can only add coolant through the overflow tank. It is the big plastic tank on the side and it should have markings for minimum and maximum fill lines.

How to fill a raditor that is low on coolant do i add to overflow tank or directly to raditor


Only take the radiator cap off when cold.
It is best to top up both, but if the overflow tank is only down a bit, you will only need to top it up.



Check for leaks and completely change the coolant ocasionally

1992caprice over heating after replacing the thermostate


You either have the thermostat in upside down or you have an air pocket and the system needs to "burp". Sometimes this can be done by warming the engine and letting it cool down.

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.

Radiator and reservoir are empty after water pump change.


fill the raditor to the top only when cold, top off the coolant bottle level to full cold, reinspect the coolant bottle after the engine get to proper operation temputure and add coolant to the bottle only. NEVER take off the radiator cap when hot!

Still Pegged at Max Hot even with new Tstat


Good Day again,

Sorry to hear it wasn't the thermostat, Other possible causes inlcudes low coolant, water pump and or waterpump belt, radiator blockage, and radiator cap not maintaining pressure. Check you coolant level first, fill if it's low, typically if it was the pump you would devolop a coolant leak as the pressure builds in the pump assembly. Check the belt though, any squeaks while running? Also if the seal in the raditor cap is bad then no pressure can build. To test the pump remove the raditaor cap (ensure the motor is COLD!!) and start the motor w/o the cap installed, watch the coolant level as it is should be going down slowly as it pumps through the system. Also check the seal on the raditor cap for any cracks's or visible damage.

The temp sensor is a possibilty but a rare one at that.

Hope this helps again
