With the engine cold the cool and should be to the top of the radiator. Now check the overflow tank. It should say hot and cold the fluid should be at the cold mark. Good luck.

Why is my1997 chevy lumina low coolant light is on and the radiator is full of coolant ?


In most newer chevys, the coolant reservoir is part of the pressurized system. Rather than just holding overflow coolant and relying on the radiator pressure cap to draw from and expel to the reservoir, it is an active part of the cooling system. On these systems, there is a coolant level switch in the reservoir. This will activate if the level in the reservoir gets below a certain point. So it is possible to have a full radiator and still get a low coolant light. Be advised that as the reservoir ages and get stained, it is not uncommon for the low coolant sensor to give false indications of low coolant.

How many gallons of coolant does the northstar engine hold?


Coolant should be mixed in most cases to a 50% concentration, meaning one gallon of undiluted coolant will provide two gallons of diluted coolant. Most engines will hold 2-3 gallons of coolant mix. I normally purchase two gallons of undiluted coolant. I pour the first gallon of undiluted coolant into the radiator, then fill the empty bottle with water and add that to the radiator as well to make it a 50% mix.. Then, I pour half the second bottle of undiluted coolant into the empty coolant bottle, and then top both off with water to make two gallons of 50% mix. I then add coolant to the radiator as needed until full, keeping the remainder for topping off later as air purges itself form the system.

How to install radiator


Hi Cindy, I can help with this because I have changed many a radiator on 99 Intrepid's here we go. First, drain the coolant into a pan until theres none in the radiator. Then remove the upper radiator support by removing all the bolts including the ones holding the head-lamps. Then you'll need to remove the cooling fan module, unplug the connector for the wires, take out the 4 bolts holding it and pull it straight upward and out. Next remove the 2 upper bolts holdint the radiator then loosen the clamps holding the radiator hose's and remove them from the radiator. Next if you have transmission cooler line you'll need to remove those, I believe they will be 16 MM can't remember, if there not find one that fits. Pull the radiator upward and out. Put the new Radiator in reversing all the procedures. Word of caution. after filling the radiator with coolant there is a purge nut near the thermostat housing, loosen that nut and finish filling the radiator with coolant until the coolant starts running out of the purge hole, then start the engine and let it run until all the air has purged from the hole then tighten the purge bolt turn the engine off and fill the coolant bottle to the max level. Drive the car while keeping an eye on the temp guage if it runs hot it means you still have air trapped somewhere and will need to purge it again. If it doesn't run hot you are good to go. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes Cindy. Have an awesome day!

Coolant system holding pressure


Holding pressure is a good thing. When it doesn't hold pressure worry. The cooling system Is a close system and when the coolant gets hot it actually expands creating pressure. Once it reaches a certain temperature the thermostat opens allowing hot coolant back into the radiator to cool and if there is to much pressure in the radiator a valve on the cap allows the coolant into the reservoir. When hot there's pressure which is why you should never open a cooling system when hot.

Was told I may have valve pressure problem


Not holding coolant by that I guess you mean the water is escaping to the reasevoir in which case replace the radiator cap with the correct pressure cap recommended for you car. I would have a coolant system pressure test done to ensure that ther is not a more serious problem with the engine causing the radiator to over pressurise

How are you supposed to add antifreeze to a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix


the plastic jug is an overflow container when the vehicle gets warm excess coolant from the radiator flows to it there is a sensor somewhere on the jug or in it for coolant level if it doesnt hold coolant it is most likely cracked as it is only plastic and should be replaced

Hello my 1994 camry toyota has a problem holding the water. We replaced the thermostat,fan switch,radiator cap, and it keeps comsuming the water. What do you think the problem might be? Javier


Javier, have you checked the coolant overflow tank for holes, cracks, or loose hose? When the engine in your car heats up, the coolant expands. The coolant overflow tank (located near the radiator) takes up any coolant that is forced out of the radiator. If the tank is damaged or not connected to the radiator correctly, the coolant will not siphon back into the cooling system when the engine cools off.

You have a leak in the radiator and it's not holding coolant. The coolant is evaporating through this leak and is causing the car to overheat. It doesn't matter how much you fill the radiator it will not hold any coolant/water until the radiator is repaired. Good Luck!!!
