Solution for carburetor gas overflow of toyota 3au engine car


Carb float is stuck or maybe has lost its buoyancy and the fuel flow is not being stopped when carb is full. Hence, the overflow.

2001 dodge strates cant keep flud in the overflow


If you can't keep fluid in the overflow you either have an external leak, you should see fluid on the ground after stopping, if no fluid is apparent you have an internal engine leak and need a mechanic to determine the cause and repair.

The overflow need to be filled with water?


Yes, it is important to include the overflow tank or bottle as integral with the radiator and coolant system as a whole. They all intermix. Actually, the level in the overflow tank is a true measure of the correct amount to keep your coolant at. There are two marks on the overflow: full hot and full cold. The coolant system on all modern cars is a sealed system and therefore should never require adding, save a very small amount through evaporation within the overflow tank- the only part that is open to atmosphere.

So once you get all the air out of the system that is possible, both in the engine and in the radiator, you have a full level everywhere, including the overflow tank where it should always remain somewhere between the full hot and full cold marks.

You are right that the overflow collects the heated radiator coolant. But it is due to the expansive properties of coolant-or water- that it expands when heated, (but not boiling-that is very bad news of a different sort). Your radiator cap is designed to open at a specific pressure, just enough to allow coolant to flow into the overflow. As the engine and coolant cools, it contracts, the level drops in the radiator, and a natural vacuum there will siphon the overflow tank back into the radiator until it is full again. That is why you have the full hot and full cold marks.
I will shut off the lecture now. I hope you have liked my answer. If not, I give you permission to kill me now- if I may so jest.

WHEN ENGINE COOLS DOWN.CHECK COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG COOLANT MUST BE IN THE COOLANT OVER FLOW JUG AT THE FULL COLD MARK WHEN ENGINE COLD. DONT .DONT OVERFILL COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG.KEEP COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG IF YOU LET COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG RUN DRY AIR WILL BE DRAW IN COOLANT SYSTEM CAUSE ENGINE TO OVERHEAT.

STOP ENGINE WAIT FOR A WHILE UNTIL COOLANT COOL DOWN TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED. USE A LARGE RAG OVER THE OVERFLOW JUG CAP OPEN OVERFLOW JUG CAP A LITTLE AT A TIME REMOVE OVERJUG CAP CHECK COOLANT LEVEL ADD MORE. COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG.THEN START VECHICLE AGAIN.LET ENGINE IDLE UNTIL TOP RADIATOR GET HOT.THEN THERMOSTAT WILL BE OPEN.WHILE ENGINE IDLING WATCH THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE IN VECHICLE IF TEMPERATURE GAUGE START CLIMBING IN THE HOT ZONE.TURN OFF VECHICLE LET IT SET A WHILE THEN USE LARGE RAG REMOVE OVERFLOW JUG CAP.ADD MORE COOLANT, PLACE CAP BACK ON START VECHICLE AGAIN KEEP DOING THIS PROCEDURE UNTIL TEMPERATURE STOP CLIMBING HOT ZONE.AND WHEN COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING IN THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG.AIR IS OUT THE SYSTEM, BUT KEEP COOLANT LEVEL IN THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG AT THE FULL COLD MARK.DONT OVERFILL.DONT LET COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG RUN DRY IF SO AIR WILL ENTER COOLANT SYSTEM BECAUSE COOLANT LEVEL WILL BE LOW ENGINE WILL START OVERHEATING.

Overflow tank appears to be leaking as I find fluid on the ground. the truck doesn't overheat or warm hot. how difficult is it to remove the overflow tank?


Before removing the overflow tank check:-
1) the pressure cap is of correct specification and serviceable,
2) the overflow tank is not over-filled- space most be allowed for normal expansion of coolant.
The overflow tank should not be difficult to remove if it is necessary.
