Put water in radiator to top off overflowing later

Topped off radiator with water for a 60 mile trip and when i got home and turned the car off noticed water flowing out of overflow onto the ground. Stopped after 3 or 4 minutes turned car back on temp is medium as always and did not see water flow again and no leak at water pump. Did I fill it too high before my trip? Thanks

If my 08 dodge advenger is over heating should i turn on a/c or not 73 miles to home on sidd of road HELP!!!!


No, because that puts more strain on the engine.

Leave it to cool down and top up the radiator with water, NOT the overflow reservoir. Be careful taking the cap of as it is pressurized and steam will be under it.

Coolant level on 2006 Toyota Avensis Tourer 2.2 T180, Very Low within two weeks of being topped up?


have a pressure test done on the cooling system and find the leak
it could be in the radiator tanks , timing cover behind the water pump, water pump seal, head gasket, cracked head or welsh plug rusted out
check the sump oil condition and if it is grey that is where the water is going

Jimny running fine - started screeching like belt slipping - after 2-3 miles car died when pulled to a stop - strong burning smell - won't restart - ignition turns but no starter engages - 1996 model


Engine may have slipped off mounts and fan may be rubbing a hose. This would stop when you stop, be reason for water loss and burning smell . Check hoses around front of engine, if this is the problem then engine mounts need replacing and hoses.

Have to keep adding water to overflow tank...Code read PO117 for mazda miata MX5


You have a leak in the radiator, water pump, a hose, the heater or a head gasket. Check these and see if there is any water coming out of the exhaust or in the sump.
Take off the radiator cap, fill it right up to the neck, start the engine and warm it up. See if there are any bubbles in the top of the radiator, keep it topped up so there is no room in the top tank.
If there are continuous bubbles then there is a leak in the head gasket.

I have a ford 2001 windstar. the other day the temp gauge went close to High. After an hour of sitting while we went shopping. It didn't move from normal on the way home. we added 1-1/2 gallons of water...


If you absolutely need to drive the van without having it serviced ensure your coolant/water is topped off prior to setting out. Make sure you have LOTS of water on hand to top it off if needed and keep a very close eye on your temperature gauge. You should also stop every few hours even if the temperature gauge stays in the "normal" range to ensure its operating at the correct temperature. There could be a few things wrong with the van, but damage to the radiator or cracked hoses could be likely culprits.

That being said I wouldn't recommend any long trips before having this issue fixed.

Problem with this is that it could be a number of things, have ur water pump checked, open the radiator and see if there is water running through it, a bad or plugged thermostat, in this case it does sound like a blown head gasket. id suggest flushing the radiator with some cleaner that u can buy at the store and check n see if ur thermostat is stuck, hope for the best and expect the worst
