Do this when car is cold, remove the clamps holding the hose on, coolant will leak out when removing hose, catch in a pan,remove the hose and install new one and reuse or replace the hose clamp, then refill radiator cap run till at operating temp then let cool down, remove cap start engine and top off if needed.

My 1999 Chevy Malibu is losing the coolant though the overflow hose by the resevior I've had my head gaskets replaced there is no overheating no water oil mix, but my radiator fans arent working I


Sounds like you need to disconnect the Radiators' electric fans and have them tested. You absolutely must have them working, or your car will overheat. Check to see if the Temperature guage is working.

You need to go to a good autoparts store and have them test the fans and charge and test your battery. You may need some sensors to activate the Radiator fans, but you could be running the battery down with shorted cooling fans.

There are also Relays which work with the Radiator fans. The overflow will stabilize once the water gets into where it belongs. Make sure your Thermostat is not clogged with the sealer.

I can.t find where my thermostat goes for my 97 chevy malibu


99% of all cars have the thermostat sitting in the top of the manifold with the top radiator hose going into it, Don't remove the hose, just the housing, catch the coolant in a pan, take note of the thermostat position, pull out and replace, new gasket, no glue, filter coolant, reuse, all set.

I have a 2004 Chevy Classic Malibu and was wondering on the coolant resevoir it has has a hose at the top where should that be connected or what is it for? When I put antifreeze in it runs out of the hose...


there should be one small hose going to the radiator from the resevor thats if the radiator has a cap on it if not then there will be 3 hoses two going to either the motor and the radiator and one that just hangs down so if any over flow from the radiator does not blow all over the motor.

THE CAR KEEP OVER HEATING


Blow out the radiator core from the engine side with compressed air to remove bugs and other debris. Make sure the cooling fan comes on when the engine gets to operating temp. If the car car has AC, turn it on which should start the fan immediately. If no fan action, try to turn the fan blade(s) which should turn easily with no noises. Check the fan fuse and fan relay. If the fan(s) come on fine, check the coolant level in the radiator core--it should be right at the top. Check the seal on the cap and replace it if it is decayed or damaged. Make sure the reservoir bottle is filled to the line and the connecting hose is in good shape. It is possible that the thermostat is sticking and not opening fully. Also, check the intake and outlet hoses to and from the radiator for firm condition without decay, collapse, or other damage. A hose can sometimes peel away a portion of the hose interior which can cause blocking. Hope some of this helps!

I have a 2001 chevy Malibu. Have problems with


Due to the complexity of the newer cars on the raod today!! what you are experiencing is Normal!!! since the coolant systems on the newer cars run at such a higher pressure and a high Rpm the reserve tank which has it's on drain hose for excessive overflow from the radiator allows the extra high pressure release from the radiator to back flow to the reserve tank and then out the reserve tank overflow hose on to the raod
