Radiator, fill up the overflow reservior to the appropriate level with a mix of 50% coolant/ 50% water.

Just what it says. Coolant. The manufacturer assumes you know it is an antifreeze mix. There is no coolant in a refigerant system,only a pressurized gas. Your owners manual will help you with these basic questions

Condition
Some customers may comment that a "COOLANT LEVEL LOW ADD COOLANT" message is displayed in the Driver Information Center (DIC) even though the coolant level is normal.

Cause
This condition may be caused by a false reading during off-road driving or in high slush conditions.

Correction
Do This - Reprogram the HVAC control module.
Don't Do This - Do not replace the coolant level sensor, HVAC control module or radiator surge tank.


A revised calibration has been developed to address this condition. Technicians are to reprogram the Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) control module with the latest software available on TIS2WEB. Refer to the Service Programming System procedures in SI. As always make sure your Tech 2 is updated with the latest software version.

When your vehicle gets hot and the A/C is on It gets shut down , for your temperature to rise suddenly and fall suddenly your looking at a plugged radiator,or low fluid coolant level you will also need a thermastat, replacement is a safegaurd against overheating,you said heater not working your plugged or low on coolant, check for any leaks around your radiator,

How to take the steering wheel off a 1995 2.2 liter pontiac sunfire to change the heater core


Replacing the heater core in a Pontiac Sunfire is a very difficult and complex process. The heater core is kept within the car's heating/air conditioning module behind the instrument panel. So many other parts have to be drained and removed from the car to reach the heating/air conditioning unit that you may be better off leaving this to a professional mechanic--especially one licensed to work on air conditioning units.
Things You'll Need:

  • Wrench
  • Container
  • Air conditioning reclaimer
  • Hose clamp pliers
  • Screwdrivers
  • Heater core
  • R134a refrigerant
  • Recharge service hose
  1. Removing the Core
    • Make sure the car is cool, the front wheels are facing forward and the ignition switch is off. Drain the engine coolant by removing the drain plug at the radiator and letting the coolant pour into a clean container, then do the same at the engine block's drain plug. Recover the refrigerant by connecting an air conditioning reclaimer to the system high and low side fittings as its instructions state.
    • Disconnect the evaporator lines to the evaporator by removing its bolt and disconnect the heater hoses from the core by loosening the hose clamps with clamp pliers. Remove the drain tube from the evaporator case. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    • Remove all the trim covers and panels from the instrument panel; some of these are screwed on and some require a flat bladed tool. Remove all air distribution ducts from the panel, the air bags, the steering wheel, the radio, the tilt and washer levers and all electrical connectors, then unscrew and remove the instrument panel from the car. Unbolt the cross vehicle beam, remove its wiring harness and remove the beam.
    • Remove the air outlet in the floor. Disconnect the wiring harness for the heater/air conditioner and the electrical connectors at the blower's motor and resistor.
    • Remove the heater/air conditioning module by removing its attaching bolts and the assembly screw. Remove the heater cover case by removing its heat stakes and screws and remove the heater core.
    • Install the replacement core into the heater/air conditioner module, then re-connect the heater core cover case. Install the assembly in the vehicle, aligning the mounting bracket to the front of the dash slot and mounting bolt hole. Reconnect the electrical connectors and wiring harness and install the floor air outlet.
    • Reinstall the cross vehicle beam and every component of the instrument panel. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
    • Install the drain tube back on the evaporator case. Connect the hater hoses and the evaporator lines.
    • Recharge the air conditioner. Connect a can of R134a refrigerant to the air conditioner's low side service fitting with a recharge service hose and a high pressure gauge to the high side fitting. Open the service hose valve while the car runs with the A/C at the max and let the vapor flow until the gauge reads between 225 and 250 PSI.
    • Refill the cooling system at the radiator filler neck. Use fresh coolant if the old liquid is dirty in any way

My 2005 malibu console panel is reading "low coolant" do you have any idea if its air conditioning coolant or ???


It is probably your engine coolant. Check your coolant level in the resevoir. If it is low it has to be going somewhere, meaning you have a leak. Take a quick look under the car and in the engine compartment to see if you see or smell any coolant. If not, open the pressure caps on the radiator and check under the cap, MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS COOL AND SYSTEM HAS NO PRESSURE BEFORE OPENING THIS CAP. If it has a brown slime inside it is possible you have a leaking intake gasket. I have had a Chevy V-6 that had this problem and have heard of others that have had this same problem. I hope it is something simple like a loose hose clamp.

Good Luck.

Where do i refill coolant? message reading low engine coolant.


please rate, thx Coolant Recovery System NOTE: When the water thermostat (8575) is closed, there is no flow through the radiator coolant recovery reservoir (8A080).

Trapped air in the cooling system must be removed. A pressurized radiator coolant recovery reservoir system is used which continuously separates the air from the cooling system.
  • When the water thermostat is open, coolant flows through the small hose from the top of the radiator outlet tank to the radiator coolant recovery reservoir.
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir separates any trapped air from the coolant and replenishes the system through its radiator coolant recovery hose to the water thermostat housing.
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir serves as the location for:
    • service fill
    • coolant expansion during warm-up
    • system pressurization from the pressure relief cap and
    • air separation during operation
  • The radiator coolant recovery reservoir is designed to have approximately 0.5-1 liter (0.53-1.06 quarts) of air when cold to allow for coolant expansion.

Lincoln lse 2005 ac blowing hot air on left side!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If your LS is blowing hot air on one side of the dash and cold on the other the problem most likely is the Dual Coolant Control Valve. The DCCV is used to control cabin temperature. This valve is mounted down low on the passenger side of the radiator fan shroud, and has 3 coolant hoses connected to it. This valve if found to be faulty will need to be replaced to correct the condition.
