If you have a bad hose, replace it before it gives you a major problem.

How do I replace my radiator in a 1996 Buick Regal 3.8 3800series


This is actually not too difficult.
I recommend replacing the upper, and lower radiator hoses while you are replacing the radiator if they are getting old.
1. Disconnect the battery.
2. Remove radiator fan (Some had two 10mm bolts at the top, and slots at the bottom, others had two more 10mm bolts on the bottom.) - And unplug the electrical connector.
3. Disconnect transmission lines (you will loose a bit of fluid)
You may also have two engine oil cooler lines that need removing (Also may loose some oil)
4. Remove upper and lower radiator hoses, and the overflow jug hose.
5. Unbolt radiator (should have two 8 or 10mm bolts connecting it to the radiator support near the top of the radiator)
6. Pull radiator up and out.
7. Reverse for reassembly
8. Refill radiator, I usually leave the top radiator hose loose while filling to remove air bubbles in the engine. - reconnect upper hose when fluid starts to get close to the radiator inlet. Some of these engines have a small brass air bleeder near the thermostat housing to accomplish this in a different way. Also fill the overflow jug about half way.
9. Check transmission, and engine oil. - Run engine, and watch for any leaks. - Recheck antifreeze just to be sure. Obviously don't open the radiator cap when the engine is hot.

Water pump; My 1990 Buick Century is leaking what looks like water or antifreeze, it's probably a mix of both because we have been putting water in the radiator. But everytime I park my car for a...


if you have the cooling system pressure tested this will show where the leak is coming from as there are frost pulgs and intake/headgaskets and other things that could be leaking.but pressure testing is the way to find what is leaking for sure.the rad may be full as it will draw water from the overflow bottle until its empty.if you didn`t have this problem until after the plugs were changed then it could be a hose that is leaking that was leaned on or moved to much.again pressure testing the system will show were its leaking.the whining noise could be antifreeze that has gotten on something causing the noise.

THE COOLANT LEVEL SHOULD BE AT THE FULL HOT LINE.ALLOW THE ENGINE TO COOL UNTIL THE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE IS REACHED THEN CHECK THE COOLANT LEVEL IT SHOULD BE AT OR ABOVE THE FULL COLD LINE.ADD MORE COOLANT IF NECESSARY. WARNING BECAREFUL WHEN OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP OR JUG OVER FLOW CAP.USE A LARGE RAG OVER THE RADIATOR CAP TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.OPEN RADIATOR CAP A LITTLE AT A TIME TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.WAIT UNTIL ENGINE COOL DOWN BEFORE OPENING RADIATOR CAP OR OVERFLOW JUG CAP.WEAR SAFETY GLASSES.

Why is my buick century coolant light always on


You may want to check your manual. There is usually a light to tell you the coolant level in your reserve or overflow tank is low, and there is another light to tell you the system is overheating due to not enough coolant in the entire system. Nonetheless if either light remains on and you have refilled the overflow/reserve tank it is time to look for a leak. Leaks can be at hoses, in gaskets, and other locations. A puddle on the floor where the car is usually parked can help you locate a cracked hose or loose clamp, an antifreeze smell in your exhaust can help you locate a much worse problem.Often you may detect an antifreeze smell only after the car is warmed up which can be a leak which is running onto an exhaust pipe.

I found a mud like substance in my 1998 buick century antifreeze reservour


this could be one of two problems.1.someone has mixed two different types of antifreeze that are not compatible,you need to flush/ refill asap.2.you do not have the right amount of antifreeze in the system and its rust dust(mud). system needs full flush/refill to 50/50.when you do flush.flush backward,up to the reservoir,not down(i take the top hose off the heater,block the pipe,and connect a hose to the heater manifold,if you can get to it.....that way you wont get any air in system.

Low coolant light, temp normal


try adding it via the reservoir. make sure you have a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze. If you want to cheat, cheat on the side of more antifreeze than water. Look for a leak in the hoses and water pump to find out if she has a larger problem that is causing the loss of coolant. look for drips under the car.
