Make sure you bleed all of the air out of the cooling system it is very important that you do so, and then make sure that the coolant level is exactly to the fill level line.

How do i put water in my radiator?


you need to replace thermostat and radiator cap.look under hood around engine compartment.look for a radiator cap near radiator,add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system to bring up boiling point.pure water will cause engine run hotter because water evaporate away,remove radiator pour coolant in the radiator until coolant stop dropping in the radiator now some vechicle pour coolant in the coolant overflow jug,pour coolant until coolant level stop dropping and the coolant level stay at cold full mark.start engie let idle few minutes, watch coolant level in radiator if coolant start dropping add more coolant, when coolant level stop dropping put radiator cap back on let engine idle until both top radaitor hose and bottom coolant hose get warm turn off engine wait until it get cool then take a large rag slightly open radiator just a litle at a time to keep from getting scaled.once radiator remove add more coolant if low,put radiator cap back on start the engine let it idle watch the temp gauge if temperature gauge going hot zone stop engine wait until cool then add more coolant,keep doing this until engine stop overheating going into hot zone and coolant level stop dropping,make the coolant overflow jug coolant level stay at full cold mark, dont let jug run empty if so air will get in the coolant system causing engine to overheat.

My 1996 Maxima leaks water from what looks like a hose going into the front of the engine block


ok check the hose if its very soft feeling you may need to replace sounds like a coolent hose. also make sure the hose is tight on the block fitting maby the band has worked loose may just need to be tightned, then refill your radiatior with new fluid. you should be fine. remember to do this after the car is completly cool you dont need a coolent burn and it will stay hot awhile so its best to get the hose you need [if you need one] the day before with the coolent, that way you can do it first thing in the morning when its cool. also if green coolent comes out green coolent goes back if orange coolent comes out orange coolent goes back in. never mix those typs of coolents they are not compatible.. you will probily loose all you coolent so drain it at the bottom of radiator before you start. unless you like laying in it to work on the hose. then refill all is well.. i hope this helped you.. also youtube has alot of good videos on radiator type stuff just type in radiator hose replace and you should get alot of videos on how to do it. who knows they may even have one with the same model as your car.. again i hope this helps good luck

Can i still drive my 06 chevy impala with a warning light of engine hot a/c off?


It's not a good idea to drive a car that is overheating. Permanent engine damage can occur. You need to find out what is causing the overheating problem. First, check the coolant level. Do this with a cold engine to avoid burns when you remove the radiator cap. If the fluid level is low, replenish with a 50/50 mixture of anitfreeze and water. Be sure to use an antifreeze that is compatible with aluminum. With the radiator full, run the engine until the top radiator hose is warm to the touch. Carefully remove the radiator cap and observe the coolant for several minutes to determine if it is flowing through the engine. If the coolant does not seem to be flowing, then you need to replace the thermostat. If you replace the thermostat, it would be a good time to flush the cooling system with a good commercial product such as Prestone Super Flush. Follow the directions closely. Refill the cooling system with the correct antifreeze. Avoid Dexcool antifreeze. It has too many problems associated with it. If the warning light is still on, you may need to use a scanner to clear it. Drive the car normally and watch for any signs of overheating. Keep a close eye on the coolant level. If it was low earlier, that could mean you have a leak. Let me know the outcome.

My 2003 Hyundai accent overheated and the radiator blew up..replaced the radiator and it cracked on the top again. I'm thinking its the thermostat. Any help will be appreciated


take out the old thermostat and back flush the system.check the water pump for any leaks and for any perished hoses.then refill with antifreeze with a 50/50 mix.any problems will obvious as/when you get to them (the radiator for hyundai is week by the way around the top join.as it is soldered.)

Coolent lose


Check youre waterpump...also spending 5 dollars on "Radiator STOP Leak" is a good investment. its an additive you add to youre radiator. If the actual radiator has a small crack or leak, this will fix it. Check every inch of both the upper and lower radiator hoses and connections.

Washer fluid in the coolent


if u didn't run the engine no, just use a hose and flush tank, if u did run the engine just drain and refill the radiator with 50/50 solution of long life antifreeze, also flush the coolant reservoir with a hose as well..
