If you have to turn the water off at the mains it will probably be that the float valve rubber is worn out allowing water to keep flowing into the tank. Remove the float and the valve that it is attached to and replace the seat in the valve

SOURCE: jag s type 2001 the water header tank burted en

Sometimes this bleed method is not enough.
Bleed air out of the very top water hoses on the engine (when cold!) whilst filling. Then run the engine for a short time, check tank level again and if required refill when cool enough to be safe, repeat this if water level drops in tank again. When water level in header tank stays constant run the car up to full temp. and see if problem is fixed. Then check level again when cool.

good luck. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bubbles in overflow tank and no heat

If you have exhaust in your radiator that means that the head gasket or one of the cylinder heads has a blown gasket or warped or cracked head or heads,you need to get the heads removed to see whats the cause as for the coolair it could be the heater isnt turning in as the vents should still blow hot air when you turn the heat on,fix the heads first then sort the heater when the big problem is fixed

SOURCE: Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot

disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

03 beetle 2.0L.new waterpump and thermostat hardly any heat.return line going to bottle has no cooland comming out.the steel fiting on the side of the head seems blocked..is there a check valve in it


Turn on the heat in the car to full heat an full fan. Remove radiator cap start car and continue to fill overflow bottle/tank until heater starts to blow warm that's when the thermostat begins to open. Keep an eye on matter level -make sure it's full. Replace cap a wait 6/7minutes open cap slowly and with rag and gloves it will be hot. Slowly -continue to add more water. Until full. Replace cap. Shut off motor and wait until it cools about 45 minutes. Remove cap again and add water as needed. Then run
Motor making sure it is full. One more thing most important anytime filling radiator always turn heat on first. If not you will ruin your radiator as they don't swell open they swell closed as to not let water move thru it's internal passages.

Water bubbling out overflow


Did you bleed the air out of the cooling system?? This is a must or it will overheat.

2003 pontiac grand am bleeding the cooling system


Look on your exhaust manifold. What you are looking for is a little bleed screw. Mine is painted blue. Yours maybe a different color. When you find it start your engine and let it idle for 3-5 minutes. Make sure your heat is turned on full. With the enging running turn bleed screw counterclockwise till water starts shooting out. Let the water continue to shoot out until you get a steady stream. Once you get that steady stream then tighten. Your system is now bled.

Car has know heat


Have you recently had any work done on the cooling system? If so, you most likely have air trapped inside the system, and you will have very weak heat until the system is properly bled.

Depending on your car, you may have a bleeder screw somewhere near your overflow tank. You just start the car and let it warm up(park somewhere that the front of the car is higher than the rear) turn your heat on to it's highest settings, on the defroster. now slowly open the bleeder screw until only coolant slowly flows from under it, then retighten it. (be very careful to not open it too fast, the coolant will be extremely hot!!!!!! Only open it enough do the the coolant trickles out). Continue doing this until only coolant comes out as soon as the screw is opened. Check to see if you have heat, if not, go for a spirited drive, while the heat is still blasted, and try to bleed it again.

If you don't have a bleeder screw, the process is essentially the same, except instead of open the screw, you will be massaging the coolant lines. Litterally just squeezing them over and over. Just do the ones you can reach without burning yourself. All you are trying to do, is force the air out of where it's trapped and back into the overflow.

If bleeding the system has no change, it may be time for a new heater core.

if your sure the cooling system is full than i wouldn't be surprised if you had a head gasket that has failed.

This would explain the water noise, and overheating.

With the engine cold remove the radiator cap, start the vehicle and let it idle. continue to monitor the coolant level in the radiator. top it off if it gets low. If you see a constant perculation of air bubbles coming out of the radiator than the head gasket is bad.

Sometimes you can also smell the radiator or the overflow. If it smells like exhaust than the head gasket is leaking.

Over flow bottle bubbles when I stop running it.


If the gauges read normal and the fans are working properly and the vehicle dosen't overheat. I would suggest that it's the normal operation of the vehicle.

The overflow bottle is there because when the vehicle get's hot it draws in the extra coolant from the overflow. When the engine cools down it will push the extra coolant back into the overflow, that's what the radiator cap is for, it's not just a cover for the radiator. At a certian pressure the radiator cap will release the coolant to the overflow bottle. Otherwise the super heated coolant would have nowhere to expand to and blow apart hoses and such.

One other thing to check is if the coolant is a proper mix of antifreeze and water. You can buy a coolant check tool from any auto store, they don't cost too much.

Tip: Use distilled water instead of tap water (or use pre-mixed antifreeze). In some cars regular tap water will speed up corrosion in the cooling system.
