Engine light came on

2 weeks ago radiator hose disconnected. It was clamped back and antifreeze was added. Today engine light came on. What does that mean? Do I need to add more antifreeze?

If it's the check engine light... and you live in the states drop in to autozone they will scan it for free and let you know what the codes mean. as far as more antifreeze.... when the motor is cool... fill the resevoir to the maximum mark .... and then it's fine... keep an eye on it to make sure it stays at that level... top it up if needed

Antifreeze leak


The hoses could seem ok but have tiny cracks in them that you can't see if they were not replaced. With antifreeze the flange the hose goes on could be rusting from antifreeze and cutting the hose. Cut the end of the hose past the clamp mark if there is enough slack. and put back on. The clamp could either be too tight and cutting the hose on the metal flange or not tight enough. Squeeze the hose and if you see cracking in the hose replace it. Also, if you over fill it it could be a problem or you got a bad radiator. If it is a tiny leak in the radiator you can use radiator stop leak. http://picsbox.biz/key/radiator%20leak%20sealant. Check all the hoses and clamps and make sure the belt on the water pump is ok too. Good luck. They are a great car and worth the effort especially if you havea V6.

Sounds like you have another hole somewhere. The cheaper part would be the lower radiator hose, but any hose like a heater return hose can leak.

The proper way to test can be one of two methods. The pressure tester, which may be borrowed from places like Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance is similar to a bicycle pump.
There are fittings used to test the cap or the Radiator. What is good about this method is that it can be used on a cold engine.

In conjuction with this test or as a stand alone test is a chemical dye test. The chemical is added to the Radiator and after the water is circulated an Ultraviolet pen light is shined on the engine and Radiator.

With enclosed Yellow glasses(in some kits) the light is shined on the leak and the glowing dye will help you spot the leak. You should NOT pressurize the system with the pressure tester BEYOND Factory limits. Most of the time the Pressure rating is on the Radiator cap.

If there is just a loose hose clamp, use an adjustable clamp which can be opened and then reconnected once it is around the hose. This way you will not need to remove either end of the hose to slip on the new clamp. The old clamp can be slide up out of the way and remain on anyplace on the hose.

Car is running hot added coolant runs fine for a while today I was adding coolant to the reserve tank and saw a hose that is loose but can't find where it should be connected. When adding coolant it...


  • There are two hoses on an Antifreeze reservoir tank.
  • One is to allow escape in case of unexpected back pressure or overfill of the reservoir.
  • The other will be a hose that clamps on to the radiator right below the cap on a little spout coming off the fill neck of the radiator. This hose is the actual path the antifreeze takes when the radiator is low pressure pulls the antifreeze out of the reservoir to use.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

RAdior is leaking badly what do I do? One of the hoses seems to be broken, and seems like a huge leak on the bottom??? Need help asap contact me at downloadkris4free@hotmail.com


  • Turn off the engine as soon as you suspect a leak, to prevent the engine from overheating.
  • 2 Determine which radiator hose is leaking and exactly where the leak is coming from by looking for wetness.
  • 3 Purchase 1 gallon of antifreeze and the correct replacement radiator hose from your local auto-parts store or dealer. (Radiator hoses are not interchangeable. They come in specific sizes and shapes for your particular car model.)
  • 4 Wait for the engine to cool down for at least 20 minutes, before beginning any work on the cooling system.
  • 5 Place a large pan or wide bucket on the ground under the hose to catch the coolant.
  • 6 Use a screwdriver to loosen the hose clamps at both ends of the hose you are replacing.
  • 7 Remove the radiator hose by twisting and pulling where it connects to the radiator and engine. If the hose won't budge, use a utility knife to cut it off the fittings.
  • 8 Remove the hose clamps from the old radiator hose and slide them onto the new hose.
  • 9 Put the new radiator hose on. Spray the inside of the hose ends with WD-40 if the hose is hard to get on. Tighten the hose clamps.
  • 10 Refill the radiator and the coolant reservoir with a 50-50 mixture of water and antifreeze.
  • 11 "Burp the cooling system" by running the engine with the radiator cap off until the engine warms up. Keep the engine running until both the upper and lower radiator hoses feel warm (this indicates that the thermostat is open and the coolant is flowing through the entire system). Burping the cooling system allows any air bubbles to escape. Add coolant to the radiator as needed.
  • 12 Look for leaks. Inspect around the hose clamps for dampness. Tighten the hose clamps if there is any wetness.
  • 13 Put the radiator cap back on.
  • 14 Check the coolant level after driving, to ensure there are no leaks

    2003 saturn ion adding antifreeze every 2 weeks cannot find leak


    There should be a radiator cap as it controls what goes into the overfill tank. You might consider replacing it. If there are no leaks in the radiator or hoses, there are only 3 places the coolant can go (water pump leak, blown gasket, or out throught the radiator cap). Hope its the cap because that's the cheapest. Good luck!

Buy the part and pay a shop to change it. I spent 2 hours tring to get to itwith no luck. I took it to a shop and it took them 5 hours and 3 technicians to change it out. Good luck.

    leaking heater core or hose that feeds it. look for hoses that pass thru the firewall to passenger compartment. Most times the hose is clamped to a pipe at the firewall so you may just need a hose
