After you put it, turn on the car and see if it's leaking. Car must warm up first. If you don't see it coming out that might be because its going into the engine. Shut car off and check motor dip stick. Make sure it doesn't have water mixed with oil.

SOURCE: ENGINE COOLANT SYSTEM NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY

1. Check the level you filled the coolant to...If you overfilled it this will happen. 2.  Did you add the correctly diluted antifreeze? 3. Check to be sure the radiator is unobstructed

SOURCE: low coolant light always on

Low coolant means just that, find out if the system is really low or the light is receiving a false signal from the low coolant sensor, just check the level in the coolant recovery tank and the make sure the radiator tank is full, if you are low on coolant then check out why, a leak is probable, most likely a water pump or hose related issue, and no a bad thermostat will not in itself turn on the low coolant light unless the engine boils over and the system becomes low. Remember never ever open a radiator cap on a hot engine, you would be surprised how many professional mechanics get burned this way, be careful..

SOURCE: 1996 ford contour gets hot , no hot heater or temp guage movement

Is your temperature gauge working now? That is of more concern then your heater as you wouldnt know if your engine was overheating until its too late. Your heater core could be clogged, they get clogged quite easily. You can flush them or replace. The part is inexpensive but on some models you have to take out dash to replace them, but on other models it only takes about 30 mins and a few bolts.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Taurus 3.0L OHV won't hold coolant?

Hello! There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #1-15-6 that addresses electrolysis in the cooling system...If this TSB has been installed on your vehicle...There will be a tag on the drivers door with the TSB #...Also, a restrictor will be inserted into the heater core inlet...Lets eliminate this right up front...Check to see if this TSB is installed...
The vehicle does have a closed system...Electrolysis, coupled with air in the system is the likely culprit...Replacing the metal lines with rubber will increase electrolysis, which turns the coolant to a "goop"...Coolant flow is adequate when being pumped, but when you shut the engine off the goop blocks the system...Pressure is high...So coolant spews out...
I'll send a test to determine the level of electrolysis...You will need a DIGITAL multimeter...We'll fix the the electrolysis...flush the system...replace the thermostat...And properly bleed the air...Send comment about TSB and do yo have the digital meter...Guru...........Saailer

Testimonial: "No, TSB is not installed. No label, and there was nothing in the heater core inlet when I re-did the system. I own a DMM."

2006 jeep grand Cherokee limited if the radiator overflow jug is empty will it cause the transmission temp light to come on


I would say it is possible an overheated engine which is not coolling the transmission can trigger a lot of lights. Many transmissons are heated and coolled by a line which goes to the radiator of the engine cooling system.

How do i put water in my radiator?


you need to replace thermostat and radiator cap.look under hood around engine compartment.look for a radiator cap near radiator,add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system to bring up boiling point.pure water will cause engine run hotter because water evaporate away,remove radiator pour coolant in the radiator until coolant stop dropping in the radiator now some vechicle pour coolant in the coolant overflow jug,pour coolant until coolant level stop dropping and the coolant level stay at cold full mark.start engie let idle few minutes, watch coolant level in radiator if coolant start dropping add more coolant, when coolant level stop dropping put radiator cap back on let engine idle until both top radaitor hose and bottom coolant hose get warm turn off engine wait until it get cool then take a large rag slightly open radiator just a litle at a time to keep from getting scaled.once radiator remove add more coolant if low,put radiator cap back on start the engine let it idle watch the temp gauge if temperature gauge going hot zone stop engine wait until cool then add more coolant,keep doing this until engine stop overheating going into hot zone and coolant level stop dropping,make the coolant overflow jug coolant level stay at full cold mark, dont let jug run empty if so air will get in the coolant system causing engine to overheat.

I just replaced my water pump and my car runs hot, right now there is no thermostat in the car and it still runs hot, what could be the problem


I bet it does run hot, a thermostat has two functions, to bring the coolant to operating temp and to regulate the flow of coolant thru the system, If the coolant runs to fast thru the radiator it will not be cool enough, engine will over heat, check that the fans are working, have you flushed the radiator, is the radiator flowing?

How do i put water for the radiator?


Does your car have a cap or a sealed unit? You don't want a sealed unit. You want to be able to check your water.Push down and Twist the cap off when cold, not hot, fill it up with coolant, 50/50 mix, and fill up the expansion tank. It says coolant on it. The car will balance itself out. Check the water in your battery while you are at it. It dries out too. Then check the brake fluid, power steering fluid, and oil. That should keep you busy next Saturday. Hope this helps.

1996 toyota corolla--had to check the raditor fluid daily but had no trouble running hot unless the fluid was low: replaced the radiator and now the car runs hot with coolant in the radiator. The car seems...


did you replace the thermostat when you put the radiator in,you could still have an air pocket in the system,recheck your coolant in the radiator when it is cold.
the next thing is to verify the cooling fans are working,when you see it hot check to see if it really is hot or gauge is lying,if it is hot see if the fans are running to maintain cooling temp,if they are not check coolant fan fuse and relay and last fan motors

My heat doesn't work in my 1993 toyota corolla


Could be vapor lock, or air lock/bubble. First make sure the coolant is topped off, never do this when the car is hot! Take off the radiator cap and poor in anti-freeze, replace cap, now start the vehicle COLD remove cap and pour in more anti freeze if needed. When the engine runs it will **** anti-freeze(coolant) and therefore you may need to pour in a little more. Now wait until the car is hot and check for heat. If you have ever heard a gargling sound or bubbling when you turn your car off, this is a sign of low coolant and or air lock. If you still do not have heat, make sure your coolant lines by the engine are connected as well as any electrical wires going to your temp control valve located between your coolant hoses where coolant runs through it. If you still do not have heat, your water pump may be failing, how ever if your engine does not overheat, then do not replace it. Lastly there is a control valve that opens and closes a flap door to allow/block heat. If this controller failed then you will need to have it replaced.

Having coolant leaking problems, everytime the car runs it runs hot, coolant filled, when car is then turned off coolant leaks out on drivers side underneath radiator. Hissing sound also on drivers side when running hot.
