If it is leaking from the threaded area remove it and use plumbers tape (teflon tape) on the threads. Use about 4-5 wraps and reinstall. Leak should go away.

    Quick clarification, use this tape between the main body and the manifold, not between the center bleeder screw and the main body.

2001 3 litre s type. water pump replaced now coolant leaks from overflow once engine is switched off

By removing the water pump obviously alot of water has drained out therefore you need to prime the air out of the complete water system at the radiator. The coolant leaking out is caused by the hot air rising to escape out the coolant bottle the only exit point.With the engine switched off, alocate a bleed screw on the top or on the side of the radiator and open that screw.Then keep pouring water into the coolant bottle until you see air escaping from the bleed screw.Once the air stops releasing and only water then spurts out, close the bleed screw. The system is now 95% primed. Start the engine and let her idle then open the bleed screw again, if only water spurts out for about 5 seconds then the system is completely primed. If there is still air coming out you can rev the engine a bit to circulate the water faster and then the system will bleed quicker(Not forgetting of course to top up the bottle replacing the lost water from bleeding) as soon as there is only water shooting out the bleeder, close the bleeder and top up the bottle to the maximum mark only. If ever you over top beyond the maximum mark just open the bleed screw to let out some water until it drops to the maximum mark and then close.The system is now fully bled. Problem solved.

The heater is blowing cold air

Coolant system is a closed system. If you are loosing water there is definately a leak somewhere. Check all hoses after filling the system and letting it run until it's warm. Be careful when checking most systems have the water at 185-210 degrees once the vehicle is warmed up. Also check the Heater Control Valve. It allows hot water to travel to the heater core when you set the ac controls to "heat". Could be bad and leaking there. But bad hoses are the most likely culprit. Only takes a pinhole.

2004 2.7 L leaking water around the top of the engine coolant air bleeder

Replace the coolant air bleeder, front and center top of the engine. Remove the 10mm bolts holding the air intake down, prop it a a few inches, take the four bolts out and the two bolts holding the top radiator hose to it, polish ip the top of the motor where the pice sits bolt it back together. It took me about ten minutes to put in the new one. The part from advanced auto was 39 bucks, comes with a new o ring for the top hose, it is a piece of cake.

if the system was low it may have air trapped. look for a bleeder screw around the thermostat bleeder with engine running until all air is out.

Sounds like you make have another leak somewhere allowing air to enter into the system. I would recommend doing a coolant system pressure test. This will tell you if there is a leak somewhere else.

Replaced water pump and thermostat still over heats - 96 oldsmobile

you have a air pocket in your system you will need to get the air out of the line. if your thermostat housing has a bleeder valve on it start the car let it warm up to operating temps then crack the bleeder valve until it runs steady with coolant if you do not have a bleeder take the radiator cap off start the engine and let it run until you see the coolant flow through the radiator also do a pressure test on your coolant system to ensure that you dont have any leaks any where. or possibly even a bad head.

2004 Dodge Stratus 6 cyl 2.7L Overheating at idle

Try blowing the radiator core out with compressed air from the engine side to remove bugs and other debris. Make sure the fans turn freely with no noise and that they both come on when the engine heats up. Make sure the radiator cap has a good seal underneath. The three items at the end of your post are not likely. Check the radiator coolant level after it has run, then cooled off--it should be right at the top of the filler. If not, replace the hose going to the reservoir.

2001 chrysler sebring lxi is leaking coolant and seems to have a emissions problem

The coolant leak is probably from the water pump. The seal behind the bearing is worn out. You need a new water pump.

Water pump problem?

You need to make sure you don’t have an air lock. Find the bleeder valve for the coolant system and release the air. If you can’t find the bleeder, find the highest hose for the coolant system and make sure coolant is flowing through it.
