SOURCE: just added coolant to reservoir 1 hose back into

One on top of tank will be the overflow. It should just run down the side of the tank.

SOURCE: overheating and coolant leaking out

You will need to check for the fan fuses to see if they are blown. If you have a blown fuse, the fan may need replacing. The Chevy's have a trend to blow a fuse when the fan goes bad. You can undo the wiring harness at the fan, and if you know how, run 2 wires from the battery to the fan motor harness (one positive and one negative) This will tell you the state of the fan motor. if it runs wired like this and runs quiet, it is good, you have a fuse and or a relay problem, look at the fuse cover for which relay is which and which fuse is which. Good hunting..

SOURCE: I have a mitsubishi lancer 2002. The coolant reservoir tank is empty. Radiator is full. I just need to add coolant to reservoir. Do i add straight coolant or does it need to be a 50/50 water/coolant m

It is best to add a coolant mix. You can get it ready mixed, but try to ascertain if your car now has in it green mix or red mix. It is best not to mix these 2 mixes LOL
If you cannot make out what is in there now, just add demineralised water.

SOURCE: loosiantng coolant from system cant see any leeks

What I'm afraid of is that you've blown a head gasket.... cracked a head... or maybe even cracked your block. This results in too much pressure building up in your cooling system and blowing out your coolant. First of all,though, let's look at the simple things first. Are the electric radiator cooling fan (fans) working?? When they don't work, it usually results in everything running okay as long as the car is kept moving, but overheats when car is sitting still. Check this out.. This is a fairly frequent problem. Also, if you've had an over-heat situation because of a fan not working, you could now also have a cracked head or block problem, caused by the excessive engine heat. I'm not familiar with the vehicle you drive, so I don't know if the cap you said you changed on the reservoir is a "pressure cap", or not. If it's not, then you would have a pressure cap on the top of the radiator that may be faulty... (Note: Don't remove a pressure cap while engine is still hot.) After that, check and see if there might be a build up of bugs at the front of your radiator that might restrict air-flow. Good luck...

Low coolant light stays on until system heats

Your overflow tank(aka coolant recovery reservoir) is low on coolant. The coolant expands when warm and raises the level in the tank, which turns off your light. Top off the reservoir (when cool) to the "Full Cold" line. If you have to keep adding on a regular basis, then you have a leak somewhere in your cooling system, could even be the reservoir itself.

Need to change coolant recovery tank can a anyone do it

Yes you can do it yourself

Degas Bottle Removal
  1. Drain radiator (8005) until engine coolant is out of degas bottle. Disconnect radiator overflow hose (8075) and engine coolant vent hose at degas bottle.
  1. Remove power steering oil reservoir retaining screws and position power steering oil reservoir (3A697) out of the way.
  1. Remove degas bottle return hose and clamp. Remove degas bottle retainers and remove degas bottle.

Where do you add the coolant in a chevy Malibu maxi 2004?

You add at the coolant surge tank. The surge tank is located at the rear of the engine compartment, the tank has a radiator style cap on it. Never open hot!

Are you talking the expansion tank? If so - Drain coolant first by going underneath the car and take off the protective shield and unscrewing the blue plastic screw (make sure the car is NOT hot!), under the reservoir you'll see an electronic sensor - carefully twist is a 1/4 turn counterclockwise and gently pull downward to remove this sensor don't force it, you don't want to pay $150 to replace it. Disconnect the hoses on the top and bottom of expansion tank by pulling up the metal tabs upwards then pulling the hose away from the tank. I believe there are two or three screws which hold the expansion tank bracket in place, unscrew these and pull the bottom of the tank away from the radiator then lift upwards on the bracket (the bracket and expansion tank should then come out). Get the old expansion tank off the bracket and replace. You want to take off the bracket because getting a new tank on the bracket is a B*TCH!

Reconnect in reverse order.

Make sure to bleed the cooling system properly to remove air pockets (please use BMW coolant and distilled H20 in 50/50 mix - it's not the same as your Prestone or other mass produced coolants). Last replace the expansion tank cap because that might have created the expansion tank cracking.

Good luck and hope this helps

Car keeps saying stop check coolant, and service manual. The coolant fluid level is full.

all you have to do is remove the three screws to the the coolant reservoir tank {drivers side} it should say g12 on it.Disconnect both hoses and the sensor from bottom of tank .Have a rag handy and perhaps a small jar to catch the small amount of coolant that will squirt from the hoses. Also remove the coolant from the reservoir and put in a clean container so you can put it back in the reservoir when your done. Take the coolant tank to your "garden hose" and flush it full blast. It works better if you leave the cap on.But you can take on and off and shake it repeatedly until you have thoroughly rinsed it.--NOTE the sensor is located in the bottom of the reservoir and over time gets clogged. You can even try soaking it in a de greaser and then the "garden hose" process. Then replace everything and attach all hoses and sensor and refill reservoir with the coolant that you put aside in the container.Start the car..This is the only thing that got my light to go off.

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.

Where do i refill coolant? message reading low engine coolant.

please rate, thx Coolant Recovery System NOTE: When the water thermostat (8575) is closed, there is no flow through the radiator coolant recovery reservoir (8A080).

Trapped air in the cooling system must be removed. A pressurized radiator coolant recovery reservoir system is used which continuously separates the air from the cooling system.
  • When the water thermostat is open, coolant flows through the small hose from the top of the radiator outlet tank to the radiator coolant recovery reservoir.
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir separates any trapped air from the coolant and replenishes the system through its radiator coolant recovery hose to the water thermostat housing.
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir serves as the location for:
    • service fill
    • coolant expansion during warm-up
    • system pressurization from the pressure relief cap and
    • air separation during operation
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir is designed to have approximately 0.5-1 liter (0.53-1.06 quarts) of air when cold to allow for coolant expansion.

Coolant resevoir

There is a feed hose under there that goes to the bottom of the reservoir. Look around the edge of the reservoir, and you'll see three locating screws, philips head. Remove these and you can tilt the reservoir up and out of the way to look and see if you can see a disconnected hose underneath.
