Usualy the cap where you fill up the coolant has eihter a small hole or has a valve incorporated to bleed too much pressure out. if you are constantly loosing coolant, usualy this valve ist not the cause. usualy you have a leak in your cooling system, either somwhere in the cooler, the pipe, the hoses, which could be easy detected. or you have a leak into the cylinders. dedection difficult. if you cant find it, see a mechanic.

1994 chervy suburban. The rearbrake line failed and the brake pedal went down and the red brake light came on. The line is fixed but I have no fluid to the rear brake sysem. I suspect the brake safety...

More likely your master cylinder went dry and now has air in it. Get a bleed kit from a parts store, bleed the MC, then DO NOT let the fluid run low and bleed the brakes.

Over heating, new water pump and thermostate

1. Check if the fan is working. If it is, is it working at full capacity?
2. The head gasket may be blown.
3. Did you bleed the coolant system? There's a bleeder valve on the thermostat housing; air will
cause your engine to overheat and air under the temp sensor will cause your engine to register hot.

you forgot to bleed the air out the water jaket so you have a big air lock in it, look for a water hose at the higest point in the engine bay it should have a screw or a bolt in it this it the bleed valve fill the rad with water undo this valve turn on the car heater to hot and run the engine up til;l there is no air coming out this bleed valve only water, then shut it off top up the rad and run the motor up till its hot check the rad water is still toped up,,,it should be ok after you bleed the air out,,,,,most cars need to be bled if the coolent is drained becouse the rad it lower than the top of the engine,,and this is a comon mistake so dont go beeting yourself up becouse you missed it out

Cavalier 5 speed shifter or cable wont work

First check the clutch master cylinder to see if it's low on fluid, if it is, use dot 3 brake fluid to fill it, (trust me it's brake fluid, I"ve been working on cars for 51 years.) It's mounted on the firewall right at the clutch.
Check for leaks from the master cylinder to the slave valve ( which you have to get under the car to do so). If the master cylinder was empty, you'll need to bleed the system after filling it. On the valve there is a bleeder screw, loosen it, catch the fluid in a jar till there is no more air bubbles, tighten screw up.
If you still have the same problem, then there is either a slave valve problem,or clutch and/or pressure plate problem. It's cheaper to change the slave valve first, then take it from there providing the valve is external and not internal.
