Question about Chevrolet Venture
Over 6 months ago I changed water pump and belt. for several months every so often, i get the dash reading of the coolent being low. While car is running and cool i take radiator cap off and immediately coolant starts to come out of radiator slowly...i always tput the radiator cap back on immediately... theres no way to directly add coolant to my van.. the overfill container is normaly full..Whats the problem.. did i do something wrong when i changed water pump and belt? what can i do?? sincerely desperate...
Sounds like a bad thermostat. A malfunctioning thermostat will back up coolant into the overflow. BTW, are you experiencing any problems with the heat or AC? This would also be an indicator that the thermostat is faulty.

Sounds like you have a bad level sensor .If your radiator is full and your not over heating no worry's. Or you could replace the sensor located on passenger side of radiator.

Check with your local mechanic and ask if they have a Cool-Rite machine. The Cool-Rite system works like this your car is connected to the system. The fluid exchange will pump out every drop of spent coolant into a recovery tank, While fresh new coolant is simultaneously pumped into your car. The process includes a pre-cleaner which help ensure that rust,scale and other damaging contaminants are removed with the old coolant. Do this every 2 years or 24,000 miles.
On extended life coolants, I would still suggest still doing it every 2 years to get Maximum performance out your coolant system. Because I do a tremendous amount of driving.....Only makes sense. Go to www.Run-Rite.com to learn more.
