Just bought a second hand 1994 Jeep Cherokee XJ - didn't check coolant or water levels. Was driving along highway noticed engine overheating way beyond the red, pulled over to find no coolant or water,...


If the system is loosing coolant, it has be leaking from some place, either from a connection, gasket or out of the tail pipe. When you refilled the cooling system, did you start the engine and inspect the vehicle while it was running and at operating temp?

How to flush radiator


First you need to drain all the coolant out. There should be a spot on the bottom of the radiator or a drain plug somehwere located on the vehicle, you might want to look that up. But drain the system, then just run a hose through it and flush everything out, the longer the better, do it until you see a clear stream of water coming out, then just replenish with the correct amout of coolant/water.

Adding coolant to1998 honda accord purging air pockets


4 cyl Accords have a low pressure, self purging cooling system, so no purging is needed. Add coolant (cold engine) to the normal level. Then, with the coolant tank cap closed, open the radiator cap and fill the radiator completely, close the radiator cap and run the engine for a couple of minutes. Replenish the coolant to the proper level, since it will go down after the air bubbles have been extracted at the coolant tank.

Dodge Durango water hose leak


Not sure what hose you are talking about, but if it is a small hose that goes to the over flow tank you need to replace it. No matter which hose it is in this case it needs to be replaced, and any coolant (anti-freeze) needs to be replenished. You will keep loosing coolant until it is fixed. The coolant system is under pressure and will push out any coolant that is left in the system. This is like oil the engine needs to function properly.

1997 jetta coolant issue - slushing sound when turning


sound's like the drain for the a/c is plugged and filling up with water.With the a/c on you should see water draining out the bottom near the passenger side. If not try running a coat hanger into the drain and clear it.

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.

98 crv air conditioning does not blow cold air. small antifreeze leak and anti lock brake light came on. any solutions?


Usually it just needs a recharge of refrigerant. The coolant leak question was vague. Check your brake fluid and see if if needs to be filled. The brake light sensor is on the brake fluid reservoir. It comes on when it needs replenishment.

Overheating


Where is all the coolant going? Hopefully not into the block.
I am not an auto mechanic but If coolant needs to be replenished regularly and there are no leaks evident, then I would suspect a faulty head gasket.
