Same model and year. i had a small crack on the top left of my radiator. Seems to be a common problem. You have to look under the radiator brace with a flashlight. If you see any water spots or coolant that is your problem. Kia sells the radiator for over $600. I got it for $135 with a lifetime guarantee. Call 1800-252-0333

A guy has a LS for sale with a coolant leak. He says that 2 mechanics told him the transmission has to be removed to fix the coolant leak.


I am a mechanic and there is no reason for any coolant to be coming from tranny unless there is a bad freeze plug or the block is possibly cracked. i would look else where dont buy something you have to start putting more money into before you can drive it. there so many cars out there. good for you,for checking before you bought.

2003 vectra. Do I fill the radiator with water or coolant . Coolant reservoir keeps emptying .


You can buy a 50/50 mix of coolant and water. Use that. And dont use tap water it can hurt your engine. If your loosing coolant check all your hoses for leaks and your reservoir for leaks.

What is the name of the liquid to put in the radiator to stop the overheating.


that would be coolant or anti freeze,but it dont over heating it helps keep the cooling system rust free and helps prevent overheating but it dont keep it from overheating,if your overheating there is a problem you need to deal with,check the water level,check the thermostat,are the fans turning on,is there signs of leaking around the water pump?

It,s quite possibly the thermostat neck. Simple fix, keep the coolant level in check until you can get it to a mechanic on Monday.

2002 GMC YUKON COOLANT KEEPS EVAPORATING


if you dont see antifreeze leaking anywhere,its the head gasket,check your oil dipstck,the antifreeze is probally mixxing with the oil as it leaks thru the gasket and will give the oil a milky white color on the dipstick,if you start to see white smoke from the exaust then its leaking into your exaust port,either way head gasket and change as soon as possible,you dont want it in the oil cause you can seize the motor
