    it is coming out of the top rear driver side. It looks like a manifold (black plastic) is bolted onto the engine, and its coming out of where the bolt is into the engine. The bolt was loose, or the coolant is coming out of a hose, or thermostat? near this black plastic manifold...

There are 2 hoses going into the copper pipes that feed the heater core. Not all models have a control valve...my 1990 and 1992 do hot have a control valve.
There are hose clamps right up against the firewall for the flow into and out of the heater core and the hoses attach to the copper pipes which extend through the firewall. You may have a lose clamps, worn, split hose, or some similar failure. Just changed my heater core and went through this.

Tip

Over heating


Cold engine - - check that coolant level is correct - Ignition on but engine not running - set heter temp settings to max - set fan manual to one of the lower speeds - start engine and within 30 seconds rev it 3-4 times up to 3000rpm - shut off engine before end of 30 seconds (before it starts to heat) - reset climate to normal settings - recheck coolant and top up if necessary. Hot engine. - take car for a run to get up to operating temp - using caution - slowly open the bleed valve (steam and bubbles may come out) - close as soon as you see liquid coolant without excessive bubbles. - do not overtighten this as they are plastic threads. Just snug till it seals fully. - after engine cools check the coolant level again and top up if necessary. Check coolant level every few days for a few weeks and top up again if required - repeat the Hot engine bleed process again. If coolant keeps droping after 2-3 top ups have the system pressure tested. If you are still getting over temps have it analysed by a dealer. The temp is controlled by the engine computer so there may be another fault.

2006 Chevy equinox ls 3.1 how do you bleed the radiator coolant system


If you look on the passenger front of the engine you should see a pipe coming up from the water pump housing. There should be a bleeder screw on the top. use a 9/32" socket to loosen the bleeder. Start the engine and keep bleeder open until coolant comes out. Close it and let the engine come up to temp while periodically opening the bleeder to let any additional air out. Keep an eye on the coolant level and top off as necessary.

2000 vw beetle 2.0 L, low level coolant light...engine mil code 1256


not the pump but air in the system or a broken wire to the coolant level sensor
that sensor at the top of the radiator tank has to be completely immersed in coolant or the circuit is broken and the light comes on
same effect id the wire to that sensor is broken in the insulation

LOW COOLANT LIGHT COMES ON SOMETIMES AND TEMP GUAGE SHOWS ENGINE GOING TO OVERHEAT. HEATER GETS COLD. IS IT THE THERMOSTAT?


There may be a thermostat problem, but your symtoms indicate low coolant level. When coolant is too low, it will not circulate, so you get no heat in car, and the coolant remaining in engine block overheats because no cool fluid coming in.
You need to fill the system up properly then look for leaks.
With cold engine, open radiator cap. Fill with antifreeze directly in radiator. Start engine, top up rad if level drops. Put heat control on Hot. Fan on low, heat on high. Gently rev engine and top up rad as needed. IF as engine heats up, it starts kicking fuild violently out of radiator, then the thermostat is bad. if not, then recap radiator, top up overflow bottle and you're done. Look under car for any sign of leaks. Steady dripping indicates a leak, then address that.

in the 5.2L V8 engine the coolant sensor is located on top of the engine. Locate the coolant thick hose coming from top of the ratiator to the top of the engine. Look at the place such hose connects to the engine you wont miss the sensor it is about one inch from there.

it will be cold untill the thermostat gets to 195 degrees and that lets the coolant circulate thru out the engine and radiator
