You only have to burp the system if you are going to flush the system. If your just replacing reservoir make sure to replace any water loss. Then start it and check the coolant level again to make sure it's full.

Coolant reservoir empty when sitting overnight

You must have a coolant leak. If there are no signs of a leak, you may have a gasket on the engine that has gone bad, and the coolant is being pushed out the exhaust system. The coolant expands when hot and cools when the engine cools. During the cooling stage the cooling system creates a suction on the coolant in the reservoir and draws enough coolant back into the system to keep it full. Apparently you are loosing enough coolant somewhere that the reservoir can not fill the system before going dry.

My heater blows only warm air. and I feel it could also blow more air. What could be the cause ?

start by checking the cabin filter and replacing if necessary. That's the source of outside air.

Why is my1997 chevy lumina low coolant light is on and the radiator is full of coolant ?

In most newer chevys, the coolant reservoir is part of the pressurized system. Rather than just holding overflow coolant and relying on the radiator pressure cap to draw from and expel to the reservoir, it is an active part of the cooling system. On these systems, there is a coolant level switch in the reservoir. This will activate if the level in the reservoir gets below a certain point. So it is possible to have a full radiator and still get a low coolant light. Be advised that as the reservoir ages and get stained, it is not uncommon for the low coolant sensor to give false indications of low coolant.

Loses water from resevoir but not from radiator

So the level keeps dropping in the reservoir? If you have to keep adding coolant to the reservoir, the system is leaking or losing coolant somewhere. Have the system pressure tested to find the leak. Is the reservoir itself leaking? When the level gets low enough, first the reservoir will go dry, then the radiator level will start to drop.
Here's how the reservoir works: coolant is under pressure from the radiator cap seal. As coolant heats up from hot engine, it expands, and pressure forces the radiator cap seal up, coolant is forced into the reservoir-remember the hot mark on the reservoir? When car is shut off, coolant contracts, creating a vacuum in top of radiator. This vacuum works to suction coolant back from reservoir into the radiator, keeping the radiator topped up, and coolant should now be at the lower cold mark on the reservoir. It is a closed, sealed system. The only loss of coolant will be a very small amount of evaporation from the reservoir. If coolant level keeps dropping, there is a leak somewhere.

How come my 1998 Corvette says "Low on Coolant" and the radiator is full, but the guages have been running higher than normal and I think the cooling system burbs when I shut it off. Also, the...

Sounds to me like the cooling system has not been properly bled of air and you are getting air locks and hot spots in the system. This should have been done properly when the water pump was renewed but I would not bank on it.

Make sure both the radiator and overflow tank are at the correct coolant level when cold, turn on the heater controls and then bleed the cooling system of air when the engine is at operating temperature.

If you do not know the correct procedure for doing this then get it done by a reputable mechanic that knows C5s.

Radiator hose calasp when engine is coldbut will open up when engine is hot or warm

Check your coolant overflow reservoir, Is coolant at the minimum line. When the engine heats up is coolant added to the reservoir, and when the engine cools down is coolant drawn from it. Try replacing the radiator cap first.

What I am thinking the problem is the radiator cap isnt allowing coolant to return to the system when it cools off.

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.

How do i refill the coolant in the car after replacing upper hose

hello, your car has a reservoir tank were you put the coolant in at all you have to do is start your car and it'll draw coolant from there after your car runs a few minutes check your coolant reservoir tank it;ll probably be close to empty also since you took your hose off you'll have air in your system that you'll need to bleed out of the system otherwise your car will over heat and you wont get proper coolant flow the bleeder valve is a small brass bolt that you can use a wrench to open and close it with, with your car running just open the valve until you see coolant flow out then close it do this till you get a solid stream of coolant flow and check your reservoir often while doing this keep it full.
