No pressure in the cooling system, losing coolant then overheats.


you have a head gasket that is failing. You can confirm this by having the coolant "sniffed" with a four gas analyzer (normally used for emissions testing). If your coolant has hydrocarbons in it than its coming from the head gaskets. They are pretty common for this engine.

Car overheating, coolant blowing out of overflow


without knowing much about the particulars of the car I am at first inclined to go with what the computer says. HOWEVER I also happen to know if you have a bad or stuck thermostat not letting the coolant flow correctly it too can trick the computer into a head gasket error code. Most times you can get a new thermostat for less than $15.00 and change it yourself. It's usually 2 bolts. If you change it and still get the same result look at it as cheap insurance and then you'll know someone isn't trying to take advantage of you by telling you it's head gasket when it really isn't. Head gasket job's aren't cheap I would want to make sure before I spent that kind of money.

How do i remove engine coolant cap on 2001 cadillac dhs


WAIT UNTIL YOUR ENGINE IS COLD,YOUR RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP IS LOCATED ON THE COOLANT OVER FLOW RESERVOIR, THATS WHERE YOU ADD COOLANT WHEN COOLANT LOW,YOU POUR COOLANT IN THE OVER FLOW RESERVOIR UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL REMAIN AT FULL COLD MARK DONT OVER FILL OVER FLOW RESERVOIR, WHEN COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING WHEN ADDING COOLANT AND COOLANT LEVEL STAY AT COLD MARK ON THE RESERVOIR YOU RADIATOR HAS THE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IF COOLANT LEVEL KEEP DROPPING CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND RADIATOR AND THE TOP AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES, LOOK FOR COOLANT LEAK AT WATER PUMP GASKET OR SEAL OR LEAK AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IF YES REPLACE WATER PUMP.

I have a 2000 chevy impala my heat doesn't work,


first it to verify the coolant flow. I suspect the heater core isn't flowing, you may need to take a garden hose and take both heater hoses off, and flush in both directions to clean the heater core. flush in both directions until you get clean water flow. I am assuming the coolant level is OK, and the water pump is pumping and the engine is getting warm enough.

My 02 chevrolate malibu gets really hot n spits antifreeze out the over flow and the cooling fans only come on when you turn on the ac and it gets hot but we have great heat in the winter but no anti...


Sounds like a bad thermostat. The thermostat isn't opening and coolant is backing up into the reservoir (overflow). Overheating related to a leak would show evidence of fluid somewhere, either in the engine compartment, a busted line, a broken seam in the radiator, or even burn off through the exhaust. Since your car doesn't show any of these signs, it leads me to think it's your thermostat.

Coolant reservoir is overfulling after being driven


It probably got overfilled at some point. There's a max line on the reservoir that you shouldn't fill it over. Coolant expands as it heats up so if there's too much in the system, it's normal for it to overflow.

Where is the thermostat located


Hi,

Your engine must be cold before removing the thermostat.

Find the location of your thermostat by following the rubber hose located on bottom of your radiator (passenger side) to the point where it attaches to the engine. Remove the two bolts at that location and you'll find your thermostat nestled in there.

Be sure to place a pail under the car to contain the coolant.


Thermostat Operation:

00047_thermostat.jpgThe automotive thermostat is a temperature controlled on and off valve. When the temperature rises to a predetermined temperature, the thermostat opens up to allow the engine coolant to flow through the cylinder block and the radiator. This flow is crucial to maintain optimum operating temperature for fuel efficiency, enhanced driveability, and engine protection. The coolant flow is reduced when the engine is cold, and the flow is increased when the engine is hot. Contrary to popular opinion, operating the vehicle without the thermostat doesn't make the engine run cooler. It will actually run hotter because there isn't a thermostat to slow the coolant flow. This means the coolant doesn't stay in the radiator long enough to dissipate its heat.


All the best

Where is the radiator cap?


There isn't a "radiator cap" as one normally expects to see. The reservoir in the Cavalier is part of the pressurized cooling system, and as such, acts as the radiator cap. This is where you must add coolant to the system. Care must be exercised not to open the reservoir cap if the system is hot.

Where do i refill coolant? message reading low engine coolant.


please rate, thx Coolant Recovery System NOTE: When the water thermostat (8575) is closed, there is no flow through the radiator coolant recovery reservoir (8A080).

Trapped air in the cooling system must be removed. A pressurized radiator coolant recovery reservoir system is used which continuously separates the air from the cooling system.
  • When the water thermostat is open, coolant flows through the small hose from the top of the radiator outlet tank to the radiator coolant recovery reservoir.
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir separates any trapped air from the coolant and replenishes the system through its radiator coolant recovery hose to the water thermostat housing.
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir serves as the location for:
    • service fill
    • coolant expansion during warm-up
    • system pressurization from the pressure relief cap and
    • air separation during operation
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir is designed to have approximately 0.5-1 liter (0.53-1.06 quarts) of air when cold to allow for coolant expansion.
