What motor? If it is the V6, check for leaking intake gaskets.

How many quarts of fluid in torque converter? 2006 Impala 3.9 LT.

Neil, 7 to 7.4 Qts. when pan has been removed, 10 Qts when overhauled, converter also takes 3 to 3.5 Qts.
I would just keep checking fluid level after 6 Qts. were added as a per caution, in case tranny was not completely drained.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I accidentally put automatic transmission fluid in the engine instead of engine oil. I have started the car, its a landrover freelander 1. Is it going to damage the engine and how do I drain it?

I'd drain it from the oil pan underneath the car. Fill it back up with engine oil and a can of Seafoam, drive it around for a day or 2 then drain it again. Replace the filter each time also. Think you'll be alright if you didn't do heavy driving with it in your engine.

Overheating, loss of coolant, reservoir not working

Sounds like to me your mechanic is on the right track by having the rad cap changed. If the coolant becomes low again in the near future and there is no visible fluid leak on outside of engine or on floor/ground then your problem is internal and possibly a head gasket.

I live in central ny Very cold here. My 99 Cherokee over heated guage warning came on and the cooled back down and overheated again. Resivoir was empty, I filled it and drove 40 miles and it was empty...

hi ,trust me you have a leak somewhere ,first fill the radiator/resiviour with water while your engine is running ,when its full and no more air bubbles are coming out ,put the cap on . now keep the jeep running for at least 30 minutes and every 5 minutes check underneath the engine for escaping water .you should spot the leak this way ,if not ,then your head gasket in your engine is probably leaking water into your exhaust and evaporating your water away without being seen ,this would require a large repair by a mechanic.

Radiator tank filling procedure

take off the radiator cap and fill the rad with antifreeze. start the montor and keep watching the level of the antifreeze and keep adding as necessary. when the termostat opens you sould shee a sudden drop in level.... keep adding antifreeze. squeezing the upper rad hose will help remove air bubbles. BE EXTREMELY CARE OF THE FAN AND OTHER MOVING PARTS TO PREVENT INJURY. after you are satisfied that you have added enough fluid put the rad cap back on. fill the overflow tank to the leven it indicates.... take it for a drive and let it cool down. open the rad cap and top of the fluid if necessay.

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISSION OIL INTO ON THE ACCORD 1996adn what grad of oil please for the engine.what is it when yo get light brown oilly substance in the water container at the side of the rad.

put honda brand transmission fluid in the transmission fluid dipstick hole, if this is a 4cylinder, use 2.5 quarts to fill, if 6, use 3 quarts. if you are getting brown oilly substance in the radiator fluid reservoir, this usually means you have a blown head gasket, are you having overheating problems. try draining and filling your radiator with new fluid.

have you try changing thermostat that causes it to overheat sometimes if you have a leaky hose get it changed i have a 96 corsica i had the same problem fixed hose changed thermostat still was overheating took to a radiator shop they tested it it ended up being that get it tested first if they tell you it is the radiator they are probably gonna charge you A LOT take your time and doit your self if you think you cant do it then once you know is that look around to see who charges you less.

Overheating 2005 Equinox, after belt replacement.

This could be Caused by a Faulty Tensioner not keeping the Belt Tight enough or even the Thermostat. Check the Belt and see how tight it is First.
