    More unusual would be for it to jump out the top. Re-fill the system with water and look for the leak. After fixing it, replace water with coolant.

03 montero boiled over on the highway-radiator is cold,engine comes to temp,tophose 150,bottom 95--help

Check the thermostat...drop it into a pan of boiling water and check that it pops open. Take the pan off the heat and check that the 'stat pops closed (about 80 centigrade). Next check out radiator...remove top and bottom hoses and back flush with a garden hose through the bottom hose connection to remove any obstruction, rusty gunk build up. Flush out hoses to engine (bottom one especially) if full of crud. Flush system out until water runs clean. Drain complete system and refill with 50% water : 50%antifreeze mix. Check for compatible antifreeze for your engine not all anti freezes are the same. Antifreeze contains anti corrosion inhibitors which will prevent further crud build up. As the engine warms up ensure that all air is expelled by squeezing hoses etc. Ensure top hose becomes hot and if you have an electric fan that it come s on fully. If it fails to engage then chack out temperature sensor (not the same as 'sender' to the dash display), check out fan relays and fuses. Hot wire the fan with trailing wires from the battery to ensure that the motor is OK as a final check.

My truck has a smell of antifreeze inside.The cooling fluid level has not dropped at all.Can't find any leaks on floor board and windows are not steaming up.any ideas

Even though you do not feel antifreeze on the rugs. The only way
the smell of Anti freeze can get in the cab is, It's leaking from the heater core.
Maybe not enough to see a leak on the floor.
However, the heater core is inclosed, plus antifreeze will not
dry. it can sit at the bottom of the heater box, for a long time.
And the smell can stay in there for a long, long time.

Can't locate the radiator drain plug

Hi there.
Not all radiators have drain plugs as stated in the books but all you need to do is to take off the bottom hose from the radiator and let out all the contents ,,but it wont compleatly drain the engine of water,, but if your going to refill with Antifreeze then just add extra strenth antifreeze
and check all hose clips for tightness and turn on the heater to hot when draining water from radiator, and top up antifreeze when refilled
after running for 12 minutes. RON

How would you change the antifreeze

On most Jeep radiators, the drain is near the bottom of the right side radiator tank and usually difficult to reach and, most don't work right. I generally remove the lower radiator hose at the radiator. It does the same job, quicker and easier. Don't do this when hot, and be ready for a lot of antifreeze to drain fast. Re-fill slowly with engine running and heat on high. Make sure to wait for level to drop when thermostat opens, then finish filling and topping off.

Changing my antifreeze

i guess the easiest way is to take the bottom radiator hose off when the engine is cold put a hose in the top of the radiator flush any dirty water out then reconnect the hose put the right amount of anti-freeze in (will tell you on the bottle) fill the radiator with water but also have a hose or bucket of water handy because the water level will drop when the motor gets hot when this happens just fill with water but don't waste time

Loosing antifreeze

air in your hoses from the flush.

To Fix:
(you'll need more anitfreeze)
turn on engine, open radiator cap.
squeeze hoses, bottom one first, to releive pressure/air in your hoses.
Notice the level dropping in the radiator cap hole.
Once you seen the fluid level drop, add more anitfeeze, directly to the hole.
Once hole is filled to the top, replace radiator cap, and drive.
