Meant to do that
see what fitting a new cap does

my guess you are filling the radiator part up too much

leave it a bit low for expansion and to let fluid re-enter from the overflow by the radiator cap

Losing coolant through overflow car not overheating2004 vz 3.6 motor


Overflow of what? You could be losing coolant through radiator cap, which could seem like a radiator overflow and problem might be a clog on the hose from rad to expansion tank.

If you are losing coolant due to overflow of expansion tank, any chance you added too much? Always fill to recommended level indicated in dipstick.

With cars it's always worth noting symptoms, how and when they happen. If you're losing coolant for any reason other than adding too much to begin with, it's not a matter of 'if', it's a matter of 'when' the car is going to overheat and cause more problems/cost more, early diagnosis matters.

How do i replace the coolant in my 96 dodge caravan after i flush the system


Make sure all the drains are closed, start filling the rad and allow the coolant time to drain down, then fill again. Keep filling the rad unit it no longer drains down, just make sure to stop filling it when the level in the rad is just barely visible when looking down inside it. Now fill the overflow bottle to the lowest level mark. Start the car and turn you heater on to full heat. Let it warm up to proper temp, may/may not need to put more in rad. Keep an eye on the level in the rad it will expand and may overflow, if it looks like it will overflow use yout tester to remove some fluid. Once you see the coolant flowing throug the rad wait a few minutes, then put the rad cap on. Let it run a few more minutes to get the rest of the air out, then drive like normal. Check the fluid level in the overflow bottle (engine cold) over the next few days fill to proper level as needed.

I have a 1991 corsica and was wanting to change the coolant can you tell me where the drain plug is.


Many cars don't have a drain plug, and even if there was one, I wouldn't touch it, because they often break or strip out. Simply remove the lower rad hose from the radiator, and let the coolant drain out. Then, leaving the hose disconnected, remove the heater hose leading to the engine at the engine intake manifold end. Shove a garden hose into the end of the heater hose, and flush thoroughly with water until the stuff running out of the lower rad hose runs clear. Then, reconnect both hoses, and slowly pour in a gallon of pure coolant (not 50/50), as it will mix with the water left in the engine block. When the rad is full or nearly full, start vehicle and, leaving rad cap off, allow it to reach operating temp (upper rad hose will get hot, and coolant level in rad will drop). With engine idling, (important!) VERY SLOWLY pour the rest of the coolant in, and any additional coolant mixed 50/50 with water, until the rad is full. Cap it, and then fill the overflow bottle to the FULL HOT mark, or close to the top if no mark is found. You're done!

My son's 95 ford taurus keeps overheating and he doesn't have any heat, seems to have coolant in the radiator, would it be a thermastat problem?


It is probably low on coolant or is air locked. Make sure the rad is full to the top and there is coolant in the overflow bucket. When you put the rad cap on, do not tighten it all the way. Just turn it on past the first stop. Run the car with the cap loose like that for a couple days and keep checking the coolant level in the rad. Keep the heater turned on as well and the cooling system should fill and force the air out. After a couple of days the rad should stay full and you can tighten the cap to it's proper position. Hope this helps.

I have a 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager. I replaced the thermostat 2 weeks ago, and now the heater valve but I don't know how to bleed the antifreeze so the air can come out. How do you do this on this van?...


Hi there... with the radiator cap off, start the van and let it warm up. Once the thermostat opens you will see the coolant start to circulate in the rad. let it run for 10 - 15 minutes and add more coolant as needed. you will know when there is no more air because the coolant leve, won't go down anymore. Top up the rad and put the cap back on. make sure the overflow resevoir has coolant in it to the full mark and youre done. Hope this helps you out

No hot air


Generaly 2 possabilities, low coolant level or cloged heater core/hoses. Check low coolant first as this is thew easiest and usually the simplest solution. With the engine cold, remove the rad cap and overflow cap. Fill the rad full and the overflow to the cold level and replace the rad cap and overflow cap. Start and warm up the engine. If you still do not have any heat, then let the engine cool and drain the rad. Remove the heater lines and try to bolw air through them (if cloged, then replace them). If the heater lines are clear, then blow air through the heater core intake and see if you get a good flow out from the heater core, if no, replace heater core.

2004 impala coolant level


The coolant container (called the overflow reservoir) will be marked as to what constitutes MIN and MAX levels that should be in it. If it's low, add coolant.

As for what temperature it should run at, the gauge on the dash is just a general indication, but usually it runs close to the middle of the gauge's range.
