Could be a head gasket blown, warped or cracked and allowing compression gases from the engine into the cooling system pressuring it up causing this problem. Have it checked out by a competent shop to be sure.

SOURCE: Over heating/ loss of coolent

If you are not loosing coolant on the ground. You may have a problem of a bad intake manifold gasket or worst a bad head gasket. The two things to look at are coolant in your oil, manifold gasket. Coolant out the exhaust, head gasket.

SOURCE: coolent is leaking from overflow and overheating

I will agree with your uncle and say that you should check the water pump. Start the vehicle and look at the water pump. Most water pumps have a "weep hole". If there is coolant coming out of this hole the water pump is not working properly. If not, and if the temperature has been running normally, you may have fixed the problem when you replaced the cap, if the water pump is good and the temp has been running high, then check the thermostat. Hope this helps and good luck.

Check to see if you have flow through the entire radiator.If part of the radiator core is cool to the touch when the engine is at operating temp, this indicates restricted radiator flow. If the entire radiator core is not allowing water to flow through, cooling will not be at all efficient. Also a good idea would be to purchase a block tester. available at napa and other reputable parts houses for around thirty dollars. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening. If there are any combustable gasses present, i'e' exhaust, this would indicate a head gasket breech, (or maybe worse) and would indicate that it's time to stop looking for a simple problems, and get proffessional help. Good luck to you!

if the hose fitting has a tube under the cap to the bottom of the bottle then it has to be connected to the radiator under the radiator cap
otherwise it is just an overflow hose to the ground

Cannot locate cold fill line on impala 2008 coolant overflow tank


Just fill it up 1/4 full with coolent. Coolent expands when hot, which will fill the tank up more, so don't over fill too much. If you think your low on coolent, let the engine cool down, and open the radiator cap and fill it full from there. Filling the tank, will not add ANY coolent to the radiator untill it warms up (expands) and cools down (contracts pulling in coolent from the tank only at this moment.)

Try disconnecting the battery cable for a few minutes, this should clear the memory. If it still comes on, sounds like you have a coolant issue such as not circulating good. You could also have a overflow cap going bad. The cap will cause more trouble than what you would expect. Good Luck

I am Having a problum removing oil coolent lines from raditor . do you remove the entire line from top to cooler or ?? same with bottom


I am asuming you are going to remove the radiator. spray the **** out of them with some solvent for breaking down rust and corrosion. keep spraying and spraying once about every hour for a day. Then remove all lines going to the radiators.

The best way to flush it would be to take off the bottom radiator hose and pump water through the fill nozzle after all the coolent is out you can then hook the hose back up and replace it with new coolant.
