Question about Cars & Trucks
Lifted engine cover and looked at white hard plastic fill container and couldn't read it with trifocals. pls. help
There normally is 2 white plastic containers under your hood.
1 for your windshield wiper fluid
the other for your Radiator over-flow- ( this is normally the bigger of the 2)
your radiator cap is on top of your radiator,
which is located at the VERY FRONT of your car-
usually the front grill is directly in front of it.
(cap should be like a silver-ish color)
You ussally have to open it like a pill bottle (push down & turn)
DO NOT PUT COOLANT IN YOUR CAR IF ITS HOT-

No vehicle to refer to
If your adding --your best find & repair
the leak in the coolant system
You add to the system through the coolant fill cap, if you
have no radiator cap
If you follow the top radiator hose, you will see it
The big white container is a coolant tank,degas bottle,or over flow tank
That also has to have coolant & is checked when cold

if the vehicle is cool check the radiator level ...if low top it off then fill the coolant container to the maximum level

you must drain air out of system
so when engine is warmed up, just unscrew slightly the thermo time switch which is the highest sensor and unit in cooling system besides the reservoir, until alittle air releases then when antifreeze starts coming out then retighten to specs. BE VERY CAREFUL !!!! LOOSEN VERY SLOWLY AND NOT COMPLETELY REMOVE FOR THIS CAN CAUSE BURNS. MIGHT WANT TO USE A RAG AROUND SENSOR. If this doesnt solve it then make sure you have the correct rad. cap. Also that the filling hose is not clogged as well as the little port on radiator.

sounds like you have a bad level sensor .If your radiator is full and your not over heating no worry's. Or you could replace the sensor located on passenger side of radiator.

Cap cannot come off unless it was left loose. (most are a bit difficult even when removing on purpose) Refill with 50/50 mix right into the radiator while running, then re-fill bottle after closing cap. As always, don't open cap when radiator is hot.
