Hello. I can assist you. You must have a leak in one of the hoses or in the radiator itself. Get your car up on a lift to locate and repair the leak. Regards, Joe

If i just put water and no coolant could this make my car over heat


No your car will not overheat, but it is advisable to my 50% coolant on the water to prevent deposits of rust and other debris that may affect the effectiveness of the cooling system.

Coolant low keep leaking leak appears to be above gear box, id put loads a water leading up to it could i of over filled it, it now seems to of stop balfling machanic


you might have leak in heater matrix, or could just be over fill, they have overflow pipes that disperse excess water back down through the engine bay, can sometimes look like you have a leak when in fact you over filled. as a temp measure, you can use a thing called RADWELD... but if it's cleared up and your coolant level is ok.. then.... if it aint broke-don't fix it. do keep an eye on it though. good luck Red.

My radiator light keeps coming on.. I have change water heater, thermal pump,all hoses, and radiator.. but keep have to fill up coolant


If there is no obvious external coolant leak, the coolant is being burned in the engine and going out the exhaust pipe.
You could have a leaking head gasket.

My coolant is leaking and its a big possibility it might be the water pupm or radiator but i think its just a hole in the container that holds the coolant, is ok if i put water in there constant to keep...


Stop leak is a temporary solution and never a long term fix. You need to locate the source of the leak and replace the faulty part. I also doubt that the coolant overflow reservoir is leaking unless something has been done to the vehicle to damage it.

Using water rather than the correct spec coolant mix as a top up is NOT recommended (even for a short period) because, among other things, the coolant mix provides lubrication for the water pump. Constantly adding water rather than the correct coolant mix dilutes the coolant mix and it becomes ineffective.

Your engine needs an efficient cooling system to survive so have the leak investigated and fixed saspo.
If you allow the engine to overheat you will cause very expensive engine damage and end up with a car you will not be able to drive. It is always cheaper to fix the problem.

Cooling system problem


well it might overheat because air got into system, replace the thermostant and then fill system, run van keepin an eye on the temp, it will start to run hot because coolant has not filled the motor just the radiator, when it starts running hot shut it down, wait 3 minutes and start, now this is done with cap off,after restart coolant should get sucked in get filling radiator as needed,may get messy but got to bleed cooling system. hope thius helps.

1998 ford taurus keep running hot


When car is cold make radiator is full.then fill up your recovery tank make sure you do not spill. then park car on level ground and it dry look for any wet spot's on the ground. If no leak's you have a blown head gasket and if it's useing water that much do not drive it

You Can go to a non jaguar automotive supply shop, But be carefull to put the right coolant in, there are two types of coolant lim green in color and red you will need the red type. Fill up to the stated level on the expansion bottle and your away.
Hope this helps

Coolant warning lights keeps coming on


Hello what i would do replace the fluid level run your car with the heater on hood up watch under your car for any fluid leaking if so try to determin about where it is coming from one of the hoses could have a small hole or a clamps not tight enough the right way is with a pressure checker but this is the best way for non proffesional rule out all hoses clamps and over flow bottle leaks before you start replacing parts goodluck please rate thanks
