I read in the manual that sometimes you need to add or check the radiator as well as the coolant level, I had filled just the reservoir and that did not fix the low coolant light. However I did read that when filling the radiator there is a screw on top of the thermostat housing to bleed the coolant.... you are supposed to start the engine to get the air out of the line as you fill the radiator. Of course only do this when engine is cold. I still have to do this but I cannot get the radiator cap off as I have arthritis and it is very difficult. I hope this helps. Check the manual also.

HOW TO LET THE AIR OUT THE COOLING SYSTEM ON A 2002 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE


You should have a vacuum puller, but alternatively, you can purge it by letting in freon on the low side and opening the high side for about 4 seconds, that should purge all the air in the system.

1987 dodge w150 power ram overheats.could this be air in the coolant lines? I parked the truck because it overheated while driving it.the temp Guage went over 220 -230 by the time I shut it off and kept...


If the unit overheated and there was no coolant flowing into the reserve tank, then there is two possible issues that must be addressed immediately. Either (1) There was not enough coolant in the system. This is because when the coolant heats up it expands and will go to the reserve tank. The fact that there was going to the tank indicates that the system is less than full, or (2) The radiator pressure cap is defective.

I would flush the cooling system, clean the reserve tank, replace the radiator cap, and refill the system and retest.

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank


you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

COOLANT-ADDING ADDITIONAL
Do not remove radiator cap to add coolant to system. When adding coolant to maintain correct level, do so at coolant reserve/overflow tank. Use a 50/50 mixture of ethylene glycol antifreeze containing Alugard 340-2 y and low mineral content water.
Remove radiator cap only for testing or when refilling system after service. Removing cap unnecessarily can cause loss of coolant and allow air to enter system, which produces corrosion.

COOLANT LEVEL CHECK
The cooling system is closed and designed to maintain coolant level to top of radiator.
WARNING: DO NOT OPEN RADIATOR DRAINCOCK WITH ENGINE RUNNING OR WHILE ENGINE IS HOT AND COOLING SYSTEM IS UNDER PRESSURE.
Remove radiator cap. The coolant level should be to top of radiator. If not, and if coolant level in coolant recovery bottle is at ADD mark, check for:
  • An air leak in coolant reserve/overflow tank or its hose
  • An air leak in radiator filler neck
  • Leak in pressure cap seal to radiator filler neck

If your coolant light turn on sometimes, and you can check that your coolant level is low, definitly you have a leak.

I suggest check this artricle about how to detecting coolant leak

Radiator Reserve Tank


Your engine is pressurizing the coolant system through a leak in the head-gasket, it could be airgaps but I'm going to be your head gasket needs replacement.

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.

YES. But dont overfill it. Slowly add coolant to the low full line and let it run a while, like 10 minutes. if the level goes down fill it to the full line. After it cools for 30 minutes recheck the level and add as needed.

Check your radiator fluid level. If the level is low, you may need a new water pump.
