Radiator cap won't come off

got to dealer sell chev and have a good look at new one that fits your rad -- take note of the neck diameter of that one and campare it to the ones you have had problems with. take your one used one with you. If your find the new one is the same and the used one. Then you need the diameter of the neck hole on the rad and begin to look for one to fit (at your local napa parts store).

04 Buick Rendezvous over heated last night. I pipe-wrenched the rad-cap off to find no hole. just inches of brown mud. I assume it is engine rust. this car has never been flushed in 220,000 miles. do

Take it to a radiator specialist or dealer ASAP before you overheat the engine again and do some seriously expensive damage - at the very least you need a radiator flush.

Thermostat replacement

take the 2 bolts on the thermostat housing out, pull up on the housing, antifreeze will go everywhere, pull the thermostat out, put the new one in, in the same position you pulled the old one out. replace gasket, put the housing back on, put bolts in, fill radiator, start the car warm it up looking for leaks and monitoring coolant level until car is up to temp. you will be able to see current in the coolant with the radiator cap off when the thermostat opens. A couple things to keep in mind. 1 coolant will expand and slowly rise out of the filler neck between open cycles of the thermostat, 2. VERY important keep the cap off the radiator while warming up the car and monitoring coolant levels.

2001 Ford Escape. Coolant leaking from somewhere. Went through bottle of coolant in 2 days.

If there is no sign of a leak you need to test for cylinder head leaks.
Warm up the engine and remove the radiator cap. Top up the water to the neck of the filler. Squeeze the top hose a couple of times to shift any air in the top tank of the radiator. Run the engine on idle and check for bubbles it the radiator, keep it topped up to the neck. Bubbles showing means you have a head gasket problem.

I have a 95 buick regal custom and it is still overheating and i am lost at what to fix next, we have replaced the raditor cap, thermostat, and water pump... i have about 30,000 miles or so on the motor...

If there are no leaks, a couple more things to check are a clogged radiator and a blown head gasket. Take the radiator cap off and start the engine. Let it warm up and look inside. Does the coolant flow in from the upper hose and go down the cooling tubes? Are there deposits inside? With the radiator full of coolant to the cap neck, are there any bubbles coming up the neck? Bubbles of combustion gas indicate a blown head gasket.
Lack of flow indicates a clogged radiator. A badly clogged radiator is best replaced rather than flushed. Let me know if you need instructions or have more questions.

I don't know where to put in the coolant in my 2001 Kia Optima. Is there a diagram that I can access? I bought the car used, and it didn't come with a manual. I feel really stupid for asking, but I...

There are 2 ways to add coolant, 1) the overflow tank (resembles windshield washer tank) it's plastic and has a line that connects to the neck of the radiator. 2) With the car cold, you can open the radiator cap and add coolant. IMPORTANT: Never open a radiator cap when the car is warm.
On the overflow tank, there are 2 FILL LINES, 1 for when the engine is cold and another when it's warm. If adding directly to the radiator, fill until the level approaches the neck of the radiator.

Sounds like the coolant is getting away,while driveing the car.
Cool the radiator with a water hose,let engine cool for a while check the hoses for pressure inside by pinching them ! Then remove the radiator cap,when no pressure is detected! Is the coolant reservoir over full? If so,check the pressure cap,and check the fill neck of the radiator where the cap seats. Look for smooth surface no surface area gone or cracked!Replensh as needed with 50/50 mix.coolant and water.
If the engine got hot enough to warp the head,the gasket may not hold the pressure normally,in the engine,while driveing! The head may be warped! It only takes .005 of warpage to loose coolant.From exhause gasses getting into the systemHas the flow ben altered at the rear or side nearest the water valve for the heater core? May just be a circulation problem! Check really good for leaks,with engine off!

Radiator loses water overflow tank full. replaced cap and no signs of leakage

No obvious leaks, ehh? First of all, start the truck, and watch the tailpipe. Do you have any smoke which is by chance white, and smells sweet? Now, turn it off real fast. Let it cool. Get a volunteer, take the cap off, put your hand over radiator fill neck. Do you feel pressure against your hand? Check the oil. Does it look kinda' milky? Does the radiator water look bubbly? Finally, when you pour water in, does it go down rather quickly, but not a leak (Within 2 minutes)? These may indicate a broken head gasket. Otherwise, start looking around for cracked old hose, cracked hose necks, loose clamps, etc.
