First thing you need to do is identify the exact location of the leak (could be something other than the radiator but is running and dripping at that location) If you have a radiator with plastic end tanks, I know of no known repair (but have not tested everything out there) However, I have used an old cure successfully on my own plastic radiators, and you could try it before shelling out big $ for a new one, or getting a scrapyard unit.Warm up the engine with the cap removed and add two (not more than 3) tablespoons of regular black pepper. Replace the cap and drive it at least ten miles. Definitely not a factory or traditional repair, but as I said, it has worked for me (did it to my cherokee two yrs ago and still holding!!)

How do i bleed the cooloing system in a 1994 grand prix?


if you look close to the bottom of the ratator there should be a nipple sticking out about 1" this will be a plastic screw it will unscre and let the coolent bleed out make sure the car is not hot! Open the raditor top first. The screw will be on the left or right side approx. 3" from the side of the raiditor and 2" off the bottom.....A lot of people just remove the lower raditor hose...After you fill it up and run the car for a 15 min. let car cool down and top off the raiditor

Car is overheating


First make sure the cooling system is full. This might require letting it cool and filling it more than once though the main raditor cap. Then it needs looked over for leaks. If it won;t stay full it'll overheat. The hose from the recovery tank to the raditor connection at the cap is a problem spot and it the raditor can't **** the coolant from the tank back into the raditor the engine will soon get low. If these things are alright then you neeed to watch it heat up, and see what's happening. The engine should worm up and as it does the upper raditor hose will warm and but hot but not right away. The side of the raditor should start to warm up soon after that, Touching the raditor it should warm up evenly from top to bottom if it doesn;t it's clogged. If the hose and engine get hot and the pressure inside the hoses rise but the raditor says cool then the therostate is sticking and needs to be changed. If the whole radidor gets hot till everythings too hot and the fan does'nt come on then you need to test the fan and it's fuses and connections. The cooling fan will be comanded on if you unplug the coolant temperture senser that's pluged into the side of the therosate hoseing as it's where the upper hose connects to the engine. If the fan seems to be coming on and hot air is coming off the back of the fan and it's still getting too hot and you've decided that the whole radidor is getting evenly hot then the engine may have an issue. Exhaust clogged up ( cat canvertor, muffer bent pipes) The check engine light might be on and the reasons it's on need to be examinded.

You have a bad head gasket. You are leaking coolant into the engine block through the cylinders. This is why you have white smoke, and the extra coolant that doesnt get burned off is going into your oil.

I have a Kia Sephia 01. I had my engine over heat and warp almost everything. i've tried replacing the thermostat housing three times but everytime i refill the coolant and it runs through the housing it...


Likely you are overtightening the housing. If you have paper gasket type, try using a double gasket. If "o" ring type, just use the gasket. When tightening the housing take up small amounts on both sides, alternating from one to the other. Tighten till it is firmly mounted but stop there. After filling system, check for leakage. if seepage is noted, take up on bolts one quarter turn or less till drip stops.always alternating from side to side. Unless you have the wrong thermostat in there this pretty much has to work.

I have a coolant leak over the passenger side wheel well.


Hi,
Check your radiator, there could be a leak in it. Secondly check the bottom of the engine compartment. There would be signs of leakage if any. A faulty raditor or fan can also cause consumption of coolent
