Check for possible leaks from the radiator when engine and system cold, pipes and thermostat area, otherwise check oil if no sign of water in it ( milkish color of oil).

Why does my saturn L300 keep loosing engine coolant ? I have to add some every 3 days.

I would have the water pump checked, if that is not it, is water coming out of the tail pipe? If water is coming out of the tail pipe, you may have a head gasket problem. Something else to check is the oil. If it is discolored, then you do have a head gasket problem or worse yet, a cracked head.

Mercury sable keep running hot i changed the hose and the thermostat what should i do now?

Check the water flow first. Check the fan by turning on the A/C. Does your heater work? This means water is flowing. If not, and you have water, it's vapor locked and you have to bleed the coolant. You'll see the bleed valve on top. So, when engine is cool, open the valve, run the car, air should escape as water circulates, you may need to add more as it runs, close valve and close the cap. Keep in mind that this procedure may have to be repeated so keep an eye on the gauge.

How do i put water for the radiator?

Does your car have a cap or a sealed unit? You don't want a sealed unit. You want to be able to check your water.Push down and Twist the cap off when cold, not hot, fill it up with coolant, 50/50 mix, and fill up the expansion tank. It says coolant on it. The car will balance itself out. Check the water in your battery while you are at it. It dries out too. Then check the brake fluid, power steering fluid, and oil. That should keep you busy next Saturday. Hope this helps.

Car over heated and shut off . was low on water .

Make sure when you add coolant to system, that you have heater running while filling it and be sure to bleed all air out of system. Keep a real close eye on coolant level for a while as you may have caused worse damage, and if you keep having to add coolant. It would also be smart to change thermostat before refilling system, but if not, keep a close eye on temperature gauge for a while to make sure it doesn't go too high, or jump erratically from cold to hot, indicating faulty thermostat. Check oil often as well.
