If you have a viscous fan hub then replace it . Have a compression test done to determine if head gasket or cracked head. Check the thermostat operation by starting cold and hold the top radiator hose and time how long it takes until you feel the hose get hot ( 5-10 minutes at idle ). Flushing a radiator is a futile exercise because if the cores are blocked they will not flush out . A flow test is the best indication and if the radiator is over 5 years old then consider a new one as the cooling fins may be flaking off

The overheating of the car can be due to many reasons and you need to check on each one to confirm the working of the system.
1. In the first place the working of the engine must be assessed. it must be smooth with a good indication that the tuning timing and the power seems good. This will confirm that the settings of the engine is good and so there is less scope that the engine seems to heat up on its own.
2. Secondly the radiator pressure cap must be tight and good, the radiator MUST not loose coolant after a run or in a few days time- since this must be a sealed system and there is no scope of water overflow or loss unless there is a leak- sometimes the leak is too microscopic as under high pressure only steam might escape and so reduce the coolant. So check for leaks while the engine is hot , specially the radiator, the hose or the fittings.
3. The working of the water pump must be good to ensure a good flow and circulation, so check for leak in the water pump, check for presence of water in the exhaust or leaking on the engine gaskets.
4.Make sure that the coolant is good and clean if not drain and refill , if there is presence of rust please have a good flushing of the radiator or else the chances are that the radiator ports can be blocked and reduce the efficiency of the cooling .
5. Finally the cooling fan, the radiator fan must be working, check the thermostat/thermistor to work accordingly with good flow, have a good water jet wash on the radiator for a clean radiator cooling fin exposure.

How to get the antifreeze to syphen back into the overflow tank on a 2004 chrysler sebring 2.4

I changed the thermostat in my 91 plymouth sundance and my car is still overheating and the reserve tank is spitting out coolant


You change the head gasket

The spitting is cylinder pressure or combustion
gases blowing out coolant

Car keeps boiling tru resivour at side. all coolant boiled outta it found out it was a broken radiator cap. got new cap what coolant do i put back in and how much


Get the green stuff and mix it 50/50 with clean water. With the vehicle cool fill up the radiator until it is full and then fill the overflow tank up to the cold fill level. Start the car and take it for a spin making sure to get it up to operating temp, let it cool and then see where your level is on the overflo tank. Fill up to the hot mark and then repeat a couple times and you should be good.

I have a 99 Mercury Sable Wagon that keeps boiling the radiator fluid out of the reserve tank. The temp gauge isn't reading hot, though. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Sounds to me like a blown head gasket. Even if your vehicle is not warmed up, if your reserve tank is boiling fluid out of it when the engine is cool, it's most likely losing compression from it all going to your reserve tank. And thats why it's fluids coming out of your reserve tank. BUT, if your radiator is clogged then the same thing could happen. So i would start out cheap before you have to replace a HG.

I have a 99 Chrysler Sebring, my radiator blew last week, we have replace it and the radiator fan will only run for a minute or so and then shut off. It does that whether the A/C is on or off. Any...


it could be the water pump or the thermostat if the sensor for the fan is located on the radiator the fan probably turns off because the radiator is cool meaning the coolant is not circulating

Still losing coolant


Hi, Sounds like the water pump is not circulating the water, as soon as the engine heats what water is in it, it will boil. Since you are brave enough to open the radiator when it is hot ( Bad Idea ! ) open it when it is cold, start the car and watch to see if the coolant circulates. You may have to wait unit the thermostat opens and if the water pump is bad when the thermostat opens it may spray hot coolant and steam instead of circulating what is in the radiator so don't be in the way. Not the best way to test this but works if you don't have diagnostic tools. Good Luck! By the way, coolant means antifreeze mixture which if it gets too thin lowers the boiling point significantly.
