Check your piston compression, sounds like a leaking head gasket. Any coolant in oil ? or excessive steam from exhaust?

Ive been putting water n my car due to small radiator leak water froze n overflow bottle n also froze n all the holes car won't start due to the ice wat can I do to melt ice n holes


Get the car towed to a garage that has heat and allow the water to thaw out. Then, drain the cooling system since there is too much water and not enough antifreeze in it. Now is a good time to repair/replace the leaking radiator. Refill and bleed the cooling system with a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze. If you don't repair the radiator, keep some 50/50 mix available for topping off to prevent freeze-ups in future.

02 chevy malibu pushes antifreeze out of resivour but dosent get hot any thoughts?


If it doesn't over heat it's very possible that there is just too much coolant, so if it's leaking from the overflow there is no problem as that's what it's designed to do

My 02 chevrolate malibu gets really hot n spits antifreeze out the over flow and the cooling fans only come on when you turn on the ac and it gets hot but we have great heat in the winter but no anti...


Sounds like a bad thermostat. The thermostat isn't opening and coolant is backing up into the reservoir (overflow). Overheating related to a leak would show evidence of fluid somewhere, either in the engine compartment, a busted line, a broken seam in the radiator, or even burn off through the exhaust. Since your car doesn't show any of these signs, it leads me to think it's your thermostat.

My sunfire overheats and leaks out overflow everytime i drivee it.i changed water pump,thermostat the fan is working fine and had a water pressure test done last mth


DID YOU BLEED AIR OUT THE COOLANT SYSTEM.TO BLEED COOLANT SYSTEM, FILL THE COOLANT SYSTEM THROUGH THE RESERVOIR TANK OR THE RADIATOR UNTIL THE FULL COLD MARK IS REACHED.BESURE TO USE 50/50 HALF WATER AND ANTIFREEZE.YOU CAN BUY ANTIFREEZE THAT IS ALREADY PREMIX 50/50.AFTER ADDING ANTIFREEZE TO RESERVOIR OR RADIATOR FILL RADIATOR TO FULL MARK OR IF YOU DONT HAVE RADIATOR CAP ON RADIATOR POUR ANTIFREEZE IN THE OVERFLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STAY THE FULL COLD MARK.WAIT AWHILE UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING.NOW INSTALL THE RADIATOR OR OVER FLOW JUG CAP.START THE ENGINE AND ALLOW IT TO RUN UNTIL NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERATURE IS REACHED AND THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE BECOME HOT.STOP THE ENGINE AND OBSERVE THE COOLANT LEVEL IN THE OVERFLOW JUG. THE COOLANT LEVEL SHOULD BE AT THE FULL HOT LINE.ALLOW THE ENGINE TO COOL UNTIL THE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE IS REACHED THEN CHECK THE COOLANT LEVEL IT SHOULD BE AT OR ABOVE THE FULL COLD LINE.ADD MORE COOLANT IF NECESSARY. WARNING BECAREFUL WHEN OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP OR JUG OVER FLOW CAP.USE A LARGE RAG OVER THE RADIATOR CAP TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.OPEN RADIATOR CAP A LITTLE AT A TIME TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.WAIT UNTIL ENGINE COOL DOWN BEFORE OPENING RADIATOR CAP OR OVERFLOW JUG CAP.WEAR SAFETY GLASSES.

Antifreeze pushing cap on over flow resivore and low heat .Could this be a leaking head gasket? antifreeze not draining back out reservoir


It sounds like you need a new Radiator cap for the overflow style Radiator. The overflow style has a recovery vent which draws the water back through the radiator neck and into the engine. Low heat levels are also a sign of a water shortage.

Your antifreeze strength needs to be 50/50. This sounds like there is an ice block inside the Radiator or engine. Get the strength of the antifreeze tested.

You could have an internal leak; you need to have the system pressure tested. The overflow tank should drain back into the radiator and it relies on a sealed system to work. If you have a leak, there will be no Vacuum pressure to draw the antifreeze back into the engine.

It could be a head gasket leak, or a leaking heater core, or bad radiator or a bad hose. The pressure test can be done by anyone with a gauge. You could try Autozone or Oreillys for their loaner tools. Ask for a Radiator tester pump. You can also have the cap checked.

Radiator and A/C shops do this test routinely. A real Service station used to do this routinely until they went self-serve.

I hope my solutions give you a few alternatives because a head gasket is a costly repair. I hope you find my solutions very helpful.

Why is the car leaking antifreeze?vehicle leaking antifreeze and i do not know why, from where?


First check hoses and water pump while car is hot and running. If you find nothing then let car cool down and fill overflow container. Get engine hot again. When engine is hot turn off car and check the overflow tube coming out of the overflow tank. If it is spitting antifreeze then you have air in the system. Bleed system by opening the 7mm bleeder. You may have to do this a few times until all air is out of the system and overflow stops spitting antifreeze.

Leaking antifreeze when engine heats up but cant find leak


Your engine is constantly warming and cooling. Your radiator cap has a set pressure release. As the pressure builds it allows coolant to flow out of the radiator into the makeup tank. As the engine cools it sucks coolant out of the makeup tank back into the radiator. If it overheats a lot then the makeup tank will overflow out of the overflow tube and it usually drips out under the car. If your radiator cap is bad or weak it can let coolant out when it shouldn't. This isn't a frequent problem but it can be a cause. The most likely cause is your thermostat is bad. The thermostat is closed when you start your engine and keeps the coolant inside of the block so it can't circulate through the radiator and cool until your engine is warmed up then at a set temperature (depending on thermostat), usually 195 degrees it starts to open and allow the coolant to circulate and cool. The thermostats can get bad and stick partial open or all the way closed and open. Yours is probably not functioning right and causing your makeup tank to overflow. When engine is cool look at makeup tank and you will see a minimum and maximum mark. Fill to maximum with coolant then start the car and let it warm up and monitor the coolant level and see if it is overflowing.

The thermometer lights came on what does that mean? what does it mean when anti freeze is overflowing randomly after sitting for two hours?


If it's overflowing.... I doubt it was just sitting for two hours. Overflowing is because of overheating or a blockage, which only affect the car when it's running. It is not overflowing, but simply leaking, then you have a leak. Pressure test the system, replace what's leaking, and, depending on the coolant condition, top up or flush it.

I suspect this vehicle has been overheated, because you asked about the lights for engine/coolant temperature, and because you said "overflowing". If this is the case, do the same thing as if it were a leak, but have a technician check the cylinder head for fractures and warping as well.

Next time pay attention to the temperature gauge and don't wait for the "idiot light" to come on on the dash. A slightly high gauge is a problem, but an engine/coolant temperature light is usually an expensive problem.

Oil in the antifreze over flow tank


Yes, oil in the antifreeze typically comes from a blown head gasket. To verify, start the truck and watch the overflow tank you should see what looks like a back flow or bubbles. By the time the truck get to normal temp, it'll be obvious.
