I assume you are talking about the radiator reservoir? That would need to be filled to the full line with a mixture of distilled water and antifreeze. You can buy this already mixed from your local parts store. Hope this helps.

2001 dodge strates cant keep flud in the overflow


If you can't keep fluid in the overflow you either have an external leak, you should see fluid on the ground after stopping, if no fluid is apparent you have an internal engine leak and need a mechanic to determine the cause and repair.

How do i check fluid for convertable top


"How do I get the air out of my hydraulic system"?
  • Remove the reservoir plug on the motor pump. Leave the plug out and do not put back until you have finished.
  • Fill the reservoir 3/4 full with fluid (to the bottom of filler plug hole). Put a rag under the hole to catch overflow that will occur as system fills.
  • Run the pump for 15-20 seconds. Stop. Check your fluid level and refill to bottom of filler hole. Continue running the motor in the same direction for an additional 15-20 seconds. When the top gets to the end of cycle, check your fluid level, fill to bottom of filler hole, and run the motor in the opposite direction.
  • You are literally running the top all the way up and down sereral times. Checking the fluid level as you go and fill as required, leaving reservoir 25% empty.
  • When you are no longer able to add fluid, put the top in the down position. Check the fluid level one last time, should be to bottom of filler hole. Put the plug into reservoir.

    Car loses water from overflow cap. Replaced water pump, thermostat and overflow bottle and cap.


    Stop me if this has NOTHING to do with your problem (or if it's already been solved)...I don't know a lot about cars so...My Ford Taurus kept overflowing antifreeze from the reservoir cap. Car started to over heat and kept spilling"/dumping" antifreeze every time I turned the car off. The antifreeze reservoir had been replaced less than a year prior, and water pump, radiator, etc looked at. I got a free estimate that stated my water pump was NOT the issue, but I did need a new radiator and my reservoir tank needed to be replaced (again)....$800 parts and labor.... However...I noticed the overflow holes on the tank, and also that the orange liquid (antifreeze), was also spilled around the cap lid. I also noticed the CAP on the antifreeze reservoir would loosen when tightened completely- hence, not sealing correctly. So I went to the dealer, bought a new reservoir cap for $15, replaced it, and never had an issue after! I also found out that the CAP was a DEALER PART ONLY, and when the tank itself was replaced, the CAP was the OLD one! Problem fixed! Maybe it's similar? Or something "more serious".

    Where is the power steering fluid located?


    It basically depends up on ,what is your car model and year.But the fluid is located in reservoir. The power steering fluid reservoir is located next to the coolant overflow tank and the windshield washer fluid reservoir. The location of reservoir can be different or some car model ans year.
    Thanks.Helpmech.

    Where do you put brake fluid


    Not on the paint, not in the radiator nor coolant overflow, not in the wiper washer reservoir, not in the transmission, not in the crankcase, not in the power steering pump. That leaves only one more hole, usually on the firewall near the hood's bottom when closed and more or less in a straight line with where your foot would be when placed on the brake. Will be a cap, most likely black plastic, which unscrews from the top of an opaque reservoir. Should be some type of fill mark on the side. If the reservoir is empty and the brake light on then have it towed to a shop.

    1) Coolant/owners manual comes on when car is started. new rad and water pump replaced a few moths ago. also I get a slight antifreeze smell. 2)drivers side seat only raises on the left side


    If you can smell it then it's leaking or overflowing from reservoir. The dash light on most cars isn't for the radiator itself but the coolant reservoir telling you it's empty. Which could be the case if coolant is leaking and each time it cools it sucks more out of the reservoir until empty and then you end up with air pockets in the radiator which will overheat the car.

    My overflow reservoir bursts on my 2002 Chevy Malibu


    yes it could be and it is.
    combustion pressure is getting in to the cooling chamber and pressure from that is bursting the over flow bottle.that is the only thing that can be putting that kind of pressure into the system.
