The same thing happene to me. i just replaced bleeder valve with a bolt. Take your old bleeder valve to hardware or auto parts store to see which type of threading you should get first. Goodluck.

Wht is the plastic housing that the upper radiator hose goes to mine is leaking and cracked

This is called the water outlet housing or coolant air bleeder. It may be mistaken as the thermostat housing when indeed the thermostat housing is at the lower hose on these engines . Dorman Products makes an aftermarket replacement however I always do recommend an original replacement part from the dealer . To replace first make sure engine is cold then drain coolant, disconnect upper hose at the housing. Next you may have to loosen and lift the intake plenum to gain access to the rear bolts of the housing. This does require some special skills as there are usually support brackets in the rear of the plenum that connect to block or cylinder head. Once removed you must thoroughly clean the surface with a scraper and then a fine sandpaper. Last ,be sure to properly fill and bleed your cooling system . This is a very common problem with these cars. Good Luck !

Replaced the water pump on our '97 Buick Century because we thought that is where the leak was originating. Replaced the hose from the radiator to the water pump as well. It is still leaking with fluid...

2005 Dodge Stratus Coolant Outlet Flange

The water outlet housing if installed properly, shouldn't leak. The only way to build up too much pressure would be for the thermostat to be stuck closed. I would find out where the leak is coming from before I went any further. Use the bleeder screw in the housing to bleed the air out of the system.

Over heats

Hope you didn't run your car much when it overheated. this could mean trouble if you did. But as suggested, replace the thermostat.drain the coolant if it has any left, below the thermostat level. It is located at the end of one of the radiator hoses . the housing has a bleeder screw at the outlet of the housing. then remove the housing. the thermostat is located underneath. be careful to replace it the same direction. Clean the contact points on the engine and the housing.And place a little bit of silicone gasket sealer on the gasket and the housing . Make sure the thermostat is settled on the engine part. Carefully replace the housing. And reinstall everything back. refill with coolant half/half water and coolant.Start the car and let it heat up. Then bleed the system with the bleeder screw turning it counter clockwise until all that comes out is coolant. refill radiator again and repeat. Until radiator is full.

2002 chryler sebring is leaking anti freeze

It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

Upper radiator housing broke off

you can get a replacement at minimal cost at auto parts store like Napa or Oreillys. it is called the thermostat cover/housing. if you have broken bolts and there should be 2 of them you will have to remove them with a tool called easy outs. and replace the bolts.
