2010 Buick LaCrosse overheated and lost coolant. What type of coolant should be used? Does it just go in to the recovery tank?

You can use any good grade of antifreeze to recharge the sys. Based on how much you have to add to the system you might want to remove the radiator cap and add the antifreeze. Be sure to pour it in slow so you do not get an air lock and spit it all back out when the engine heats up.

Why is my gas tank spitting gas back at me?

There\'s a blockage in the secondary tube (about 15mm diameter) that runs down to the tank, adjacent to the main filler tube. Take the back wheel off and you\'ll see a plastic cover over the whole filler neck assembly. The secondary tube often rust and fills with dirt. The tube can get damaged too, if crushed the gas will spit back.

If whiel you are pmping fuel into tank and it spits back, the venting system or rubber hose leadign for filler neck to tank is manfuncting. Look under vehicle and see if it is twisted or misaligned.

Assuming the spitting happens when the tank is NOT full, almost always it is caused by a blockage of some kind. Either the fill hose is kinked, or someone has stuck something down the filler tube. Check for blockage. One way to check, is to get about 4 feet of large (1/2" ?) clear plastic tubing and run it down the filler. Before you go too far past the neck opening, be sure you will be able to pull it out without getting stuck. Have a screw driver handy to release the trap door if necessary. You should be able to stuff at least two feet down. Though it is possible some filler hoses have a wire spiral trap device to keep things from getting into the tank, like siphon hoses, etc.

Not Overheating, Smells like really hot antifreeze after I drive, a/c ok heater heats but when stopped air gets cold...stummped..thermostat?, Leak?

check your hoses and make sure its not getting low because when it gets low the hoses can get hot enough to expand and spit out antifreeze without overheating

After adding water to radiator, and idle till it warm up , it's spit the water back out, oil is clean chevy 97 lunima 3.1


water expands as it warms up, so spitting a little back out is normal.
what you must check for is a steady stream of bubbles coming out of the filler when the car is ticking over. a steady stream of small bubbles would suggest a blown head gasket.
if there are no bubbles in the cooling system, make sure the coolant is up the the maximum mark on the reservoir. then run the car for a day or two, keeping a check on the coolant levels. as long as the level does not go below the minimum marks, then you should be ok.

just to make sure... almost all cars need to run on a mix of water and antifreeze/summer coolant.
amount of antifreeze can vary, but 25% antifreeze will cover most situations..

hope this helps

My antifreeze is leaking and its freezin cold?

first find the leak and repair it. second, make sure it does not overheat again or you may also need a thermostat. Your heater will not work when coolant level drops below a certain level. since it's leaking, likely that level has been reached. After repair has been made, re-fill with 50/50 antifreeze mix, with the engine running and heater on full heat to allow air in system to escape. If while filling it begins to overheat and keeps spitting out coolant, replace the thermostat.

98 crv still overheating

I hate to be the one who tells you but,if your radiator cores arent blocked as you said you have your radiator fixxed,its a head gasket,antifreeze is leaking by the head gasket and going into the piston chamber when the piston goes up it pushes the fluid back into the radiator,check your oil distick for a milky white look,antifreeze in the oil,if your car starts to have white smoke its antifreeze getting into the exaust ports either way head gasket
