Have you checked all the hoses? Next time it heats up, open the hood, or look underneath and see where its coming from!

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid reservoir - MB ML 350

right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.

This sounds very much like a faulty thermostat.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox and my windshield

u will need to pull the washer fluid tank out and check to see if the tank motor that pumps the fluid is getting 12 volts when the washer switch is pushed, if it is the pump will need to be replaced, if it isn't then the washer switch is defective, this switch is part of the turn signal switch.

SOURCE: Need to add transmission fluid to a 2004 Chevy Optra

It is annoying when people automatically assume there is a dipstick and that we are all dipsticks for not knowing. There have been a few cars that have come out on the market in the last ten years or so that have no dipsticks for the automatic transmissions. I also have the same issue with a slow leak from the line coming out of the rad. There is a spot on the front of the transmisson behind the rad hose where you can put in fluid. When you remove this bolt, fluid should come out..if not then you need to add some. To add it jack the front of car and using a funnel add some fluid until it pours out when the car is level. This may take several attempts. If you over fill it just let some drain out into a pan until your at a trickle then put the plug back in. This is the only solution I was able to come across for this. It seems to be a common issue with these cars as it the problem of the lines rusting out and into the radiator making it necessary to replace the lines and rad,

Keeps overheating. brand new thermostat, it has coolant. drives fine for bout 7 mins then starts to overheat.

This could be that your water pump is going bad because this pump lets new colder radiator fluids to circulate through the engine block to help it to not overheat. Another thing is your engine light come on when this happens? If your engine light came on that you should take this car right away to Advance Auto Parts store to check the OBD II codes. You also have to check to make sure that your radiator has fluid from the start so you know if there is any leaks.

Sounds like the thermostat has failed and is stuck shut. Car overheats because coolant cannot get to engine due to stuck thermostat.

On the otherhand, you could have damaged the engine (i.e. cracked block, head, etc) when it overheated and "spilled coolant out everywhere". Suggest you take it to a reputable mechanic that you trust.

This one is not easy to tell without seeing the car. But, a logical guess would be that the water pump is starting to go bad and is leaking intermediatly. If you can pressure check the cooling system or have it done that should give you the answer.

fill the radiator and start the car let it sit at idle for a while. then check under the car for leaks. try to locate the leak and see if its a job you can handle or take it to a shop also you said you smellled it when you turned on the heat. check the passenger side floor board and see if it's wety this could be a bad heater core. if you cant find the leak check your tail pipe smoke if it's real smokey and white this is a sighn of a bad head gasket or intake gasket
