  1. Step1.Shut the motor off and leave the vehicle parked for at least an hour. The engine must be completely cool before it's safe to touch.
  2. Step2Mix water with coolant before adding it to the radiator. Use half water and half antifreeze. Coolant freezes at a lower temperature and boils at a higher temperature than plain water, so it continues to circulate and cool the engine at temperatures that would freeze or overheat water. Antifreeze also has additives that deter corrosion in the radiator and engine.
  3. Step3Pour 50/50 antifreeze and water into the coolant recovery reservoir. The container is marked to show full coolant levels for hot or cold engines. Fill the tank to the mark for a cold engine to ensure enough fluid for the radiator and the rest of the cooling system.

Where do I put water in for radiator ?


When engine is cool, take off radiator cap, and fill radiator. Then fill the coolant recovery container to halfway between the full cold mark and the full hot mark. Start engine (with radiator cap still off) and wait for the thermostat to open (upper radiator hose will get hot). Shut off engine, top up radiator, and put the radiator cap on. Fill the coolant recovery tank to the full hot mark.
You should mix the water and anti-freeze in a 50/50 mix before putting it in the car, you know. Cheers.

What is the correct way to fill the radiator of a chevrolet venture The low coolant light came on then started flashing but the radiator is full of water but has no anti freeze is this the problem


Hi there!
First.- with the engine off and cool, put a flush and drain radiator cleaner run the engine for 10 minutes, turn it off, let it cool down.
Once the engine is not too hot, open the lowest hose of radiator while you put water in the main mouth of radiator.
Once you see the water flushing clear, put the hose back and then fill it with special GM antifreeze, (the one is orange color) put all gallon into it and the rest of water, LOOK FOR THE ONE YOU CAN ADD WATER, THAT'S THE BEST FOR YOUR VAN... Good Luck!

2001 kia sportage is over heating but has no leaks. the radiator has been flushed but is very rusty inside. The water is rusty inside the radiator. We have checked the resevoir, it is fine. the water...


Rusty is from running a bad or no mix of coolant. (PH level is off) You may have a water pump that has corroded impellers, and can't move the coolant as well any more. I would start by making sure to flush the engine block again, and make sure you flush water through every possible hose, and where you can get at it.

Water pump


Hello drain the water from the radiator by removing the hose from the radiator to the water pump,after having taken out the hoses,then unscrew the bolts that hold the water pump.After having taken the pump,clean the surface where the pump is fitted on the engine.Now when putting,the new pump,put a clear layer of silicone gasket on the surface where the pump will fit to prevent leakage,now you screw the bolt to the same torque,then after put the hose back like it was before,fill your radiator ,do not put the cap now,because of an air lock in the water circuit,start the engine,you will see the water level lower,fill it to its level,then put the radiator cap.Hope that help you in changing the pump,good luck

Coolant is not ciculating and not leaking it is blowing back in can i had new hose and thermostat housing put on is it air locked?


When engine is cold, take out the thermostat. Put back everything add water as needed to the radiator, leave the radiator cap out. Start the engine be careful stand in front of the radiator and where the radiator cap goes watch if the water is circulating rev it slowly and the water should circulate faster. If it is not circulating the radiator maybe clogged, inside the cylinder head where coolant circulates might be clogged or the water pump is not working.
