If you want to fill up the coolant,take the rad cap off start the car and let the engine get warm and wait for the thermostat to open and start circulating the coolant .Don't let this go on for to long or the very hot coolant will geyser out of the rad.Don't forget to fill your reservoir as well.good luck

[1] plugged radiator core. replace radiator,not cleanable
[2] a bunch of dead bugs stuck on air conditioner condenser in front of radiator. open hood and look at front of it if a bunch of debris blast it off with water hose
[3] the air not properly bled from the engine cooling system. some have a bleeder screw that must be opened while engine running untill all air is let out if i dont have a screw for bleeding then you have to let engine run long enough to open thermistat i may take a while when radiator tank feels hot then thermistat is open. coolant level should have dropped top off and put cap on
[4] electric cooling fan not working

SOURCE: engine coolant blows back into

it sounds like you may have air trapped in the system.there are bleeder valves to remove air.
with the engine warm & running open the bleeder valve(small screw mounted around therostat)
may be located in thero housing.bleed system until all air is out,close valve & top off system

good luck

If the reservoir tank is filled with coolant, it is necessary also to fill up the radiator with water or coolant?

Depends. Not usually because as engine heats and then cools when shutoff, reservoir should allow radiator to suck back what it needs. However, if you have just flushed system, or replaced water pump, you should fill at radiator as well. Bad radiator cap that prevents backflow can cause problems as well.

Coolant in oil

Some place the coolant flows is through an area with oil in it, and the 2 mix, this indicates the gasket is defective or the part is cracked or otherwise not sealing. Cylinder head gaskets can cause this and often do.

Need to refill water in radiator every 3 weeks, cause engine starts to over heat. what can cause this?

for one never use water unless its an absolute emergency and you've blown a gasket leaking coolant out, when you add water it lowers your engines boiling point and causes it to over heat. If your mechanic savvy locate the radiator drain plug and drain all the fluid, replace the thermostat and the water pump and gaskets, then fill it back up with the proper coolant and that should solve your overheating problem, always do both the thermostat and water pump at the same time.

Overheating after replacing thermostat

If it over heated before the thermostat, replace the radiator cap. Make sure the coolant (recommend just water until this is fixed) is full. When disconnecting the upper hose you lose all the coolant from the engine and about 1/3 of the coolant in the radiator. If you only full the radiator you don't have enough water. The new remonstrate needs to open for you to get enough water. In short- take radiator cap off. Start the engine. Fill radiator. Watch level for 5min, filling as needed.

How do I check to see if the water pump is working on a 1991 Ford Bronco?

  1. Open the car hood and locate the thermostat on the top of the radiator lid. Pull the thermostat and start the car. Watch the temperature gauge carefully. If the water pump is working properly, the engine should take a long time to warm up (if it ever does). With the thermostat removed, the coolant should circulate continuously, making it harder for the engine to warm up. If you cannot tell if the car is heating up slow or not, move to Step 2.
  2. Turn the car off and locate the water pump and the water pump drive belt in the engine compartment. Use the wrench set to loosen the belt retaining bolt and pull the belt off of the pump. Spin the belt drive with your hands to see if it rolls smoothly and to determine if there is any movement or "play" in the driveshaft. If the pump seems in good working order, replace the belt, tighten the retaining screw back up, and move on to Step
  3. Locate the coolant drain plug on the bottom of the radiator and use the wrench set to remove it. Allow all of the coolant to drain out into a container and dispose of it. Replace the drain plug in the bottom of the radiator and then pour coolant into the radiator. Start the car up and watch the level of coolant carefully. If the water pump is working properly, the coolant level should drop quickly as the pump circulates coolant to other areas of the engine. Fill the radiator back up with coolant and watch it to drop again. If the coolant drops then your water pump is fine, however if the coolant drops very slowly or not at all it may be time for a new pump.

Coolant leaking from above front suspension

If it's from the front of the engine, the water pump may have failed. Check for water coming out from the bottom of the pump.
Was the overheating caused by low coolant level?
If not the pump, check your engine freeze plugs and hoses.

Ok I replaced my distributor and ignition coil on my 93 camaro 5.7 v8 and I saw my water pump didn't look so good so I replaced it. I was happy that my camaro was working again. the very first day I took...

it is boiling out because it has run hot. you most likely had an air pocket in the system. try refilling coolant make sure you have heat inside if there is air you will not have heat. if still overheats may have a sticking thermostat.

1999 Grand am GT keeps trying to overheat the heater blows cold and then it"ll kick heat on cooling the car down i've had intake gasket thermostate water pump replaced and the radiater flushed twice alond...

sounds like your either low on coolant or a possible blown head gasket, the head gasket will create too much pressure in the cooling system and blow your coolant out of the overflow and fill the heater core with air causing the heater to be cold or your just low on coolant due to a leak or improperly filled cooling system. so fill the cooling system resovoir while vehicle is running while keeping the level at "full hot" line until the fans have come on and gone back off (a/c and defrost must be off) then drive on the interstate until the heater gets hot. if the vehicle tries to push the coolant out while filling the system headgasket is a definite possibilty. BE CAREFUL COOLANT GETS HOT!!!

Engine is overheating even though there is water in the radiator

1. There shouldn't be water in the radiator at any time of year at any point of the world. Water causes corrosion, limestone, has worse boiling and freezing points, damages the sealing of the water pump and lowers significantly the efficiency of the cooling system. Clean the system adding a special liquid, following the directions on the can. You can buy such from most car stores and even big gas stations. Before filling with coolant, check for leaks, the water pump. It is annoying to loose your coolant because of an old hose or smth like that. The coolant can be chanced once per three or even five years, check the coolant's packing for this and for the required ratio of solution (usually 50/50 water to coolant). Best is to use distilled or at least soft water, but it is done mainly by paranoid people like me. :) Tap water is good enough. Also, still before filling the system, check whether the radiator is not jammed with dust, leaves, etc. and that the cooling fan switches on at required temperature (temperature sensor, relay if any, the fan itself, wires). When cleaning and filling , put the heat regulator ot the dashboard at full heating, so that the flow to heating radiator is opened as well.

Radiator over flow bottle fills with coolant.

There's nothing wrong with the overflow bottle filling with coolant, that's what it's there for. As long as it doesn't pour out the top it's fine.
