ONLY CHECK WHEN COLD!!.......and when you check the level the bottle is the first place to check, usually there is a max and min fill. if you cant see any in the resevoir then fill it up to the max line, and check frequntly as to get it full each time until none is needed.



the engine runs at different temps, at times so do the temps in the cooling system. thus rusulting in different pressures that either push coolant out into the bottle or pull coolant from the bottle.

How do i get antifreeze back in a radiator after it over heats


You have a reservoir that has fluid level markings for hot and cold for the coolant fill it to the full mark for cold after the engine is cooled down. If this is the reservoir that burst and it leaks then replace it. If the engine just overheated and boiled the antifreeze out then find out why and fix that issue.

take it to an accredited radiator shop and have it properly checked out. Plastic under the radiator cap is odd as it would restrict the excess water flowing to the coolant reservoir.

1991 Cadillac Fleetwood. The heater was working on passenger side but not that warm. Added antifreeze. Seems to be leaking it. Keep adding. gone thru 2 gallons. How do i get heat.


If you've added two gallons of antifreeze, you need to find out where it's going. Make sure the antifreeze you are adding is diluted with water in a 50/50 solution. Pure antifreeze has little freeze protection and boils quickly. If there is no visible leak, check your oil for coolant contamination. Fill the radiator and leave the radiator cap off. Put the heater controls on hottest setting, but do not turn the heater on. Start the engine and watch the coolant. If the coolant level drops, add more to full. If the coolant is flowing thru the radiator when you first start the engine, the thermostat is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the water is not flowing, then keep an eye on it and wait for the thermostat to open. Add antifreeze to keep the radiator full. Look for air bubbles or lots of foaming in the coolant. That would indicate a blown head gasket and the reason you are losing antifreeze. If there's no bubbles, and the coolant level stays full, put the radiator cap back on and see if the heater is working better.

I have a 2001 Ford Escape. The warning light for the rad comes on after the truck has run for 10 or 15 minutes - have checked all the levels and everything is good. Any ideas?


You may have a bad sensor in the resevior. You can try tapping on the resevior and see if sensor comes free and light stays off. The coolant level sensor or collant temp sensor could be bad.

You could have a head gasket problem, Check your oil level and see if it's high and also check it for antifreeze. If there is antifreeze miked with your oil it would seam mikly and check your antifreeze level too if it's gone down. Good luck and keep in mind that antifreeze is corrosive the internal bearing in your engine.

Hi, The rear and the front washers both use the same resevior. I think the fluid level sensor is at fault.
