Check hoses & clamps that connect to it. Look for cracks in plastic. If all these ok then you have to have system pressure checked.

Water reserve bottle is emptying and engine is getting how


flushing a radiator is a waste of time and money as blocked cores do not flush. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for external leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow test done on the radiator and if shows signs of blockage replace the radiator .. Always fill the radiator at the radiator cap and not the reserve bottle. The reserve bottle water will not go down until the engine coolant starts to cool so if it is going down when the engine is hot then you have a bad leak in the reservoir bottle.

Dodge neon overheating


I would be thinking radiator or water pump. When the engine is warmed up and the upper hose is hot, feel the lower radiator hose. It should be hot too, just a little cooler than the upper hose. If there is some blockage in the radiator, the lower hose may feel cold or just lukewarm.
Even though the water pump doesn't leak, the impellers may be made of plastic and have considerable wear. That would restrict circulation.
The heater core should not be an issue. Heater cores do not cause overheating even when totally plugged up.

Why water is going to the reserve when i stop car plus water tempature is st midde piont in town, long drive it at the right level


The thermostat may not fully open. When this happens the flow is restricted and the water will enter the overflow since there is no where else for it to go. Also you may want to check the water pump, they can slowly go bad and they show the exact symptoms you described when they do.

Putters when driving


We need more information. I am thinking fuel filters and/or a weak fuel pump. Always consider the least expensive first. Some people drive on the last eighth of a tank of gas, and never put in more than a few dollars worth of gasoline. At night when it cools down the ambient air in the tank cools down and the moisture in the air condenses out to form water in the fuel. Water in the fuel will make any vehicle putter when driving. If such is a possibility then buy a couple of little bottles of fuel line antifreeze even in the summer and pour it in the fuel. The pure alcohol mixes with the water in the bottom of the tank and takes it through the motor and out the exhaust. The puttering stops if the problem was water in the fuel. In future fill the tank and drive on the top half of the tank. The fuel in a nearly empty tank in the summer gets so hot that it cannot cool down the fuel pump under normal use. In the hot summer it is paramount to drive on at least a half full tank. Cars driven on the last liter or gallon of gas burn out the fuel tank pumps in short order. Keep the fuel level over the half mark winter and summer. Save hundreds of dollars on replacement of fuel pumps.

Replaced water pump, alternator, radiator, crank sensor and no coolant leaks and car has antifreeze, but why is low coolant dashboard indicator light keep flashing on 97 saturn sl2


Inside the coolant reserve tank there is a sensor for coolant level.


Over time,this sensor can get stick.


Inspect the coolant reserve tank for crack or leak.

Locate the coolant level switch/sensor and soak it in clean warm water.

Make sure it's free to move up and down the float path.

Top off the coolant tank with coolant only.

I just change the water pump and removed the thermostat, and after i drive for about 20min, coolant leak from the radiator reservous


Replace the thermostat, it will regulate the operation of the water pump and if the leakage is due a crack or from any part of the water line get it repaired..........sodeep

Is my radiator deffective?


No this is not normal. Have you had a look at the water pump? It might pay to have the system pressure tested as there may be a leak that is happening while you are driving...

will pepper swtop a radiator leak
Improvement done by sickofjunk
There are radiator sealants available at many auto parts stores. I personally have never been able to get them to work though another good way to seal a leak if it is on the aluminum part of the radiator is to soder it with silver soder. And no i don't think pepper will stop a radiator leak.
