Sounds as though the water pump isn't working as should be, so the pressure is relieved via the evap drain

SOURCE: Coolant filling up overflow bottle

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

There is a technical service bulletin that talks about engine oil contamination causing your problem. The bulletin number is 04-06-02-007 and is dated August 2004. If they came out with a bulletin on this it must be a common problem.

How do i change the coolant in 2000 dodge intrepid?


Should be a drain plug at the bottom of the radiator, if not you can disconnect the lower rad hose at the radiator. Remove filler cap to allow air in as coolant drains. Catch and dispose of drained coolant as it is sweet and animals will drink it and die

How do i flush and replace radiator with anti-freeze ?


Drain the old antifreeze. Add straight water and a chemical flushing agent from a parts store, and follow the instructions for using the flush. Then drain again, and replace the radiator and use a 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water (distilled water, preferably-it is cheap) to fill up the cooling system. Leave the radiator cap loose, and start the engine and let it warm up to operating temperature-the upper hose will be hot after the thermostat is opened, and the coolant level will drop some and need topping up.

It's a good idea to also change the thermostat while you are changing the radiator. If you are not replacing the radiator itself, but a lot of brown rust drains out, then take the radiator off and turn it upside down and flush out good with a water hose.

How to change my engine coolant in a 1992 ford ranger-v6 3.0 engine, with what kind of coolant and how much of it


Hello again Vicki, you can read my first post to you on type. Now for where and how. Put suitable container under radiator drain valve. Start to drain old antifreeze, you can also loosen radiator cap for faster drain, but make sure antifreeze doesn't start to spill all over your driveway or garage floor. When radiator and engine are mostly drained, I would recommend to change the thermostat. Follow the top radiator hose down to the engine. This is where you'll find the thermostat. Remove the attaching bolts and remove thermostat.If you wish to flush your engine,you can put water down the thermostat hole as well as the radiator cap hole, or you can do a fancy flush. Shut drain below, reinstall thermostat housing without thermostat, fill radiator with fancy flush cleaning solution and water replace radiator cap ,run for time stated on can of flush. Now you go back to where I began and start the draining again. Dispose off antifreeze correctly it is dangerous to animals if they ingest. Close drain,and fill engine with antifreeze thru thermostat housing, when almost to top install new thermostat and gasket. fill radiator almost to top, start engine, open inside heater and let engine warm to operating temperature. At this time the antifreeze level will drop, because thermostat will open, and you can fill some more .This should eliminate any possible air bubbles. Fill your coolant tank. I would like to know how you make out. GOOD LUCK.

Remove antifreeze


I am assuming you are asking how to remove your antifreeze. When the engine is COLD- be sure this is true- otherwise it is very dangerous. When the engine is cold, open the radiator cap. Underneath the radiator, closest to the ground, there is a plug that simply unscrews and lets the coolant drain out. Be sure you have something under the drain to catch the coolant, there can be a lot in there sometimes. Also, it's a good idea to run a few gallons of water through after it drains to be sure and get all the old coolant out. Close the plug, and refill with coolant/water mix (50/50).

Hope this helps!

How to replace coolant for nissan altima 2006


Park the Nissan Altima on a flat surface and set the parking brake. Next, open the hood and check the external temperature of the radiator. If the radiator is warm to the touch, wait for the radiator to cool before you continue.

Twist the radiator cap one turn to relieve any pressure. Step back from the radiator and allow a few seconds to pass, and then completely remove the radiator cap.

Place a bucket or tray with at least a 2-gallon capacity underneath the radiator and below the drain plug. The drain plug on a Nissan Altima is on the passenger side bottom of the radiator.

Loosen the drain plug and let the old coolant drain completely into the bucket. Take care while loosening the drain plug, because it's plastic and can be brittle. Pour the old coolant into a sealable container for proper disposal later and put the bucket back under the drain plug opening.

Close the drain plug and pour distilled water into the radiator until it's full. Then, open the drain plug and let the water flow into the bucket. Keep repeating this procedure until the water runs clear and debris free into the bucket. You will need at least 3 gallons of distilled water.

Make sure to tighten the drain plug and fill the radiator with fresh coolant. Refill the radiator to within an inch of it overflowing. Check the drain plug and hoses for any possible leaks.

Start the Nissan Altima and turn the heater to the high setting. Let it run for about 10 minutes and shut the engine off. Check the coolant level and refill, if necessary. Finally, put the radiator cap on and close the hood.

What is new with the 2008 Malibu cooling system, how do you drain and fill the coolant?


Your Malibu is too new to change the coolant already The coolant is good for 5 years or 150.000 miles, which ever comes first. If oyu are going to replace the coolant, make sure it's the orange coolant and premixed 50/50 water/coolant before refilling the radiator.

To drain the coolant, just disconnect the lower radiator hose. most radiators now don't have a drain plug like the old days. The issue was that the drain plug was breaking since it's plastic or the O rings would break causing fluid to leak from the radiator.

once the radiator is drained, simple reattached the lower radiator hose and refill the system. The other way would be to run the engine till the thermostat opens up and the rest of the coolant in the engine block will make it's way out, but at most you should be fine on to replacing the coolant at the radiator only and then run the engine to ensure you have got all the air out of the system.

Just make sure you replace the radiator cap first before you shut the engine down. It you do shut the engine down first before you place the cap back on, the coolant will blow out.

Thank you for using fixy and be safe.

How do I flush the coolant on the 2002 tundra V6?


PROCEDURE TO FLUSH
  • Park the Toyota Tundra on a level surface and set the parking brake. Then, with the engine off, touch the radiator to gauge its temperature. If the radiator is still warm, allow it to cool off before you start next step.
  • Twist the radiator cap one full turn, pause for a few seconds and then fully remove the cap. You want to pause to relieve any internal pressure inside the radiator. Opening a pressurized or hot radiator can cause it to spew hot coolant and burn anyone it comes into contact with.
  • Position a bucket or tray with a two-gallon capacity underneath the radiator, below the drain plug. To access the drain plug, you may have to remove the plastic engine undercover, which should be on the driver's side of the Toyota Tundra's radiator. Use a socket wrench to open the plug.
  • Open the drain plug and allow the existing coolant to drain completely into the bucket. Once complete, pour the old coolant into a sealable container for proper disposal.
  • Put the drain bucket back under the radiator and close the drain plug. Then, fill the radiator with distilled water. Next, open the drain plug to let the water flow into the bucket. Replicate this procedure until the water runs debris free out the radiator.
  • Replace the radiator drain plug and pour fresh coolant into the radiator until it's within an inch of overflowing. With the Toyota Tundra, you need to use the same coolant that came with the truck. Most likely, it is Toyota Long Life red coolant, but consult the owner's manual to be sure.
  • Start the engine of the Tundra and turn the heating fan to high. Allow it to run until the cooling fan turns on two separate times.
  • Switch the Toyato Tundra off and check the coolant level. If it is lower than before, add more coolant. If not, put the radiator cap back on and close the hood.
  1. TIPS
  • You will need 2 gallons of coolant for the four-valve Toyota Tundra and 3 gallons of coolant for the six-valve model.
  • Using tap water from a hose is an alternative to flushing with distilled water, but tap water can leave sediments behind that can damage your coolant system
WARNING
  • Because coolant is extremely toxic to people and pets, it's imperative that you dispose of the old coolant properly.
