Change thermostat.Retop up antifreeze. Open rad when cool ,start engine and see if fluid circulating. If not change thermostat and repeat procedure.if not circulating change water pump. but before you do any of this go to the tail pipe &stick finger on inside edge & smell it , if you smell asweet odor like burnt antifreese, you may have a head gasket blown or about to get worse.

My 2002 chrysler sebring is leaking antifreeze on passage side on the ground not running hot have oil change good Every other day I have to add leaking until it low in the reservoir then it stop need help


Gloria, the leak can be from numerous places in the cooling system. You can run the vehicle until the temp is hot with the cooling system full and the hood open. With a flashlight look around for leaking coolant. If you are not comfortable doing that take it to a qualified mechanic to have it checked. ?Dont mess around with this. The #1 killer of engines is overheating. this will only get worse and most often it will happen suddenly. Then instead of several hundred dollars you will be looking at thousnads of dollars.

Water leaking around engine on 2004 aveo not around the radiater hoses but at back of engine


Sounds like your heater core is bad and is leaking. Do you smell coolant inside the car? The reason your temp goes up and down is there is a air pocket developing for the missing coolant and its struggles to keep the flow through the system properly

The overheating might be caused by a thermostat stuck closed, have it replaced. That should fix the overheating, as for the hesitating, run a scan on the ECM module to make sure you dont have any codes, clear if any and fix anything that might've gotten damaged from the overheating.

REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.IF COOLANT LOW, ADD MORE COOLANT THROUGH COOLANT OVERFLOW UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL IN THE COOLANT OVERFLOW STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.REASON POUR COOLANT THROUGH COOLANT OVERFLOW MOST GM CARS DONT HAVE RADIATOR CAP.WHEN YOU GET COOLANT LEVEL OKAY, CRANK CAR LET IT IDLE UNTIL ENGINE GET HOT BUILD UP PRESSURE THEN TURN OFF CAR.CHECK FOR COOLANTS LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR HOSES,CHECK FOR LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR, CHECK FOR LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IF YOU SEE COOLANT LEAKING FROM WEEP HOLE REPLACE WATER PUMP. IF CAR OVERHEATING WHILE IDLING YOUR COOLING FANS NOT WORKING CHECK COOLING FANS FUSE AND RELAYS.IF FUSE AND RELAYS OKAY THE ENGINECOOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR BAD.

If there is no visible radiator fluid under the car after siting overnight then the engine is using the fluid likely through a blown head gasket.

thats due to low or no coolant, you shouldnt drive this overheating engine damage will occur,the first thing is to fill the radiator up, and look around for any leaks, if no leaks are seen, then start engine and allow it to warm up, leave cap off at first to top off coolant, after a few minutes install cap and let it run, keep an eye on the temp gauge and also watch for leaks. this problem is due to a coolant leak,maybe a hose is bad or it was low on coolant or you have a bad thermostat, good day.

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?

My car is leaking antifreeze and overheating


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN CAR IS LEAKING ANTIFREEZE.CHECK ALL RADIATOR HOSES AND AROUND THE RADIATOR ON THE SIDES AND FRONT AREA WHERE COOLANT FAN IS.BUT BE CAREFUL DONT PUT HAND NO WHERE AROUND COOLING FAN.BECAUSE IT COULD COME ON WHILE YOUR HAND IS NEAR YOU CAN GET INJURED.ALSO CHECK AROUND WATER PUMP GASKET AND WEEP HOLE FOR LEAKING.IF YOU FIND NO LEAKS THEN YOUR HEAD GASKET LEAKING.CHECK ENGINE OIL IF OIL LOOK LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE HEAD GASKET LEAK.

Car overheated and blew radiator fluid


you need to rent a coolant system pressure test tool from autozone, o'reily's, or any parts store. cost is $20, you get your money back when you return tool. very easy to use, fill radiator and resorvoir with water because coolant will only be wasted til you repair leak. attach tool to radiator and pressure up to somewhere around 12-15 psi. dont exceed 15 psi. pressure coolant system and look at water pump, radiator and hoses, heater hoses, scan engine.any and all leaks will be revealed.
