How do I remove the coolant cap? It seems like there is a plastic stop on the cap and reservoir to prevent it from turning.

We have a 2014 Ford Fiesta Eco-boost. When I tried to remove the coolant cap it was held in place by 2 small clips (pieces of plastic) situated at the back of the cap. Impossible to turn by hand, but with a wrench or similar tool, with a bit of leverage it will turn counter clockwise (without breaking the little plastic clips holding it in place).

Does a 2012 2.5 Ford Fusion have a coolant bleeder and if so where is it located ?


Maintenance and Specification hen you are sure that all the pressure has been released, use the
cloth to turn it counterclockwise and remove the cap.
• 2.5L coolant bleed valve coolant bleed valve 5. Open the coolant bleed valve on the back of the engine water outlet
for the 2.5L engine or in the thermostat housing for the 3.0L engine.
6. Fill the coolant reservoir slowly with the proper coolant mixture, to
within the COLD FILL RANGE or the FULL COLD level on the reservoir.
If you removed the radiator cap in an overflow system, fill the radiator
until the coolant is visible and radiator is almost full.
7. Close the bleed valve and reinstall the cap on the coolant reservoir.
Turn the cap until it is tightly installed to prevent coolant loss.
After any coolant has been added, check the coolant concentration (refer
to Checking engine coolant). If the concentration is not 50/50
(protection to -34°F/-36°C), drain some coolant and adjust the
concentration. It may take several drains and additions to obtain a 50/50
coolant concentration.

How to replace thermastat in a 2006 mercedes cls500


Make sure the engine is fully cold, open the radiator cap on the plastic reservoir, drain the coolant into a large pan by opening the plastic plug at bottom of radiator - reclose the plastic plug when drained. Cover the top half of the serpentine belt with a plastic bag. Remove the spring clip radiator hose connection at the engine block/thermo housing. Move the radiator hose back and forth gently until it breaks loose. Loosen the 10mm bolts holding the thermo assembly in place. Tap the thermo housing with a rubber or plastic hammer or pry the housing gently with a long blade screwdriver from behind by the lip, Remove the bolts all the way, remove the thermo housing, clean the circular ring area of debris in the engine block where the thermostat sits. Place the new thermostat assembly in place, torque bolts to 5 nm, then back and forth to 12nm then to 22nm. Replace the radiator hose, put on a new clamp and fill radiator with coolant as well as the plastic canister. put the cap on the reservoir, remove plastic bag from serpentine belt, start car - check for leaks, readjust coolant level after 20-25 minutes.

take it to an accredited radiator shop and have it properly checked out. Plastic under the radiator cap is odd as it would restrict the excess water flowing to the coolant reservoir.

How do i remove engine coolant cap on 2001 cadillac dhs


WAIT UNTIL YOUR ENGINE IS COLD,YOUR RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP IS LOCATED ON THE COOLANT OVER FLOW RESERVOIR, THATS WHERE YOU ADD COOLANT WHEN COOLANT LOW,YOU POUR COOLANT IN THE OVER FLOW RESERVOIR UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL REMAIN AT FULL COLD MARK DONT OVER FILL OVER FLOW RESERVOIR, WHEN COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING WHEN ADDING COOLANT AND COOLANT LEVEL STAY AT COLD MARK ON THE RESERVOIR YOU RADIATOR HAS THE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IF COOLANT LEVEL KEEP DROPPING CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND RADIATOR AND THE TOP AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES, LOOK FOR COOLANT LEAK AT WATER PUMP GASKET OR SEAL OR LEAK AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IF YES REPLACE WATER PUMP.

Hi, there is a gurgling sound coming from my BH5 2 litre N/A Legacy. Yesterday it started overheating, it has yet to reach past 3/4 on the temp gauge but that's only because I stopped driving it


Sounds that you are low on coolant so low that the coolant sensor is no longer immersed in it If the coolant sensor is prevented from working, due to low levels of coolant, then the engine radiator cooling fan will not be started and overheating will result. The gurgling you hear is due to air in the system. When the engine is cold remove the coolant reservoir cap. Set the interior heater to max temperature. Top up the reservoir to the maximum limit with water/antifreeze mix (2:1 is usual). Start the the engine. Be prepared to add more coolant mix as air is cleared from the system. When the top hose from the engine to the radiator gets warm give it plenty of squeezing to help shift any air pockets. The fan should also start at about this time. Make sure that the interior heater is blowing hot air. When the gurgling has stopped and no more coolant needs to be added to stay at the max level then replace the reservoir cap and secure it firmly. Allow the engine to reach running temperature. Check all hoses, junctions, gaskets water pump seal etc for any signs of leaks as it would be good to detect any cause for the previous loss of coolant.

My son's car overheated. Went to get some anti


The overheating is caused by the sludge. It is very easy to correct this problem. Remove the radiator cap and open the drain valve at the bottom of radiator. If possible, remove the reservoir and flush out with water. Make sure to get all sludge out of reservoir, then reinstall. Once the radiator stops draining, insert water hose (without nozzle) and turn water on. Keep the drain valve open. Run water through radiator until it runs clear. Once it runs clear, start the engine and let it run while keeping the water running through radiator. Allow engine to run until the thermostat opens up. Continue running water through radiator with engine running until the water from drain runs clear. Once you have done that, turn off the engine. Close the drain valve and refill radiator with proper mixture of coolant and water. Once radiator is filled, start engine and let circulate through engine. Coolant level will drop as the coolant starts circulating. Shut off engine and top off radiator. Fill the reservoir with the required amount of coolant. Testing the coolant at least once a year will help prevent this from happening again. Coolant should be replace a minimum of five years, less if coolant bottle specifies.

I cannot seem to locate the radiator and where I can put water in. Someone help!


The radiator is that flat panel shaped object in the front-most center of the engine compartment. You don't add coolant and water directly into the radiator. On the right side of the engine compartment is a plastic overflow reservoir with a blue cap. That's where the coolant/water mix goes. Run the engine while adding coolant and water. There are fill marks on the reservoir indicating how much coolant/water mix is required. With the engine running, if the radiator is very low on coolant it will repeatedly draw fluid from the reservoir. Continue to add coolant/water mix until the situation stabilizes and the reservoir is filled to the high fill mark.

How to put anit-freeze in my car?


Vehicle has a coolant overflow reservoir which is a plastic tank on the passenger side engine compartment.This tank is white plastic with a green cap.This is where you can safely add coolant and the system and will be under no pressure as well. Pay attention to the level mark on the side of the plastic tank which is half full.Install 50/50 coolant water mixture into the reservoir. If you for any reason you to elect to remove the radiator cap,do so with a cold engine as the contents will be under pressure at normal operating temperatures which exceeds 200F.
