Top half or Radiator is hot while the bottom half remains cold . Is this normal


This can be due to one of a few different things...First of all, water flows from the engine to the bottom of the radiator, using the water pump and gravity, and the water returns from the radiator back into the engine on the top side.

Thermostat isn't opening...this causes the water / antifreeze to remain in the engine, and not flow through to the radiator. If the water / antifreeze gets hot enough, it should activate the thermostat and water should flow into the radiator through the bottom radiator hose.

The bottom radiator hose is either worn out (there is a spring inside the length of the bottom hose. it is there to keep the hose from collapsing under the suction pressure during normal use) If the hose feels spongy, soft, or shows signs of cracking, replace it.

The radiator may be clogged, preventing the water from flowing freely through all of the 'fins' in the grill section of the radiator. Hot water usually isn't just in the top section during a clogged radiator situation...

Heater in my 2002 jeep wont get hot unless going down the road and I have water in the floor on the pasenger side.


Sounds like you have a leak at the heater core and lack of heat usually means low water level in radiator. When engine is cold ,add some radiator "stop leak" top up the radiator, start the jeep but leave the cap off until the water is hot and you are sure radiator is full. Then tighten cap and drive or idle for about half hour or more. When you can afford it change out the heater core.

How much fluid should be in return resovoir for radiator. is their a fill line


If there's no line fill it half way, needs room so that when radiator shoots coolant in there there's room, and when it need's it there's enough in there for the radiator, coolant is always going in and out from the resovoir as the radiator need's it to keep the engine at normal oper. temp.

How do you put water in the radiator


  1. Step1.Shut the motor off and leave the vehicle parked for at least an hour. The engine must be completely cool before it's safe to touch.
  2. Step2Mix water with coolant before adding it to the radiator. Use half water and half antifreeze. Coolant freezes at a lower temperature and boils at a higher temperature than plain water, so it continues to circulate and cool the engine at temperatures that would freeze or overheat water. Antifreeze also has additives that deter corrosion in the radiator and engine.
  3. Step3Pour 50/50 antifreeze and water into the coolant recovery reservoir. The container is marked to show full coolant levels for hot or cold engines. Fill the tank to the mark for a cold engine to ensure enough fluid for the radiator and the rest of the cooling system.

Adding Coolant


Wait til the car is cold and then open the cap on the RADIATOR by pushing it down while twisting. The coolant must be filled to the brim. Replace the cap and then fill the overflow tank to the "cold" mark. Use a 50/50 mixture of water and coolant.
