SOURCE: Where is the radiator cap on 2001 Olds Alero?

if you dont see a radiator cap then the cap for your resevoir tank also serves as your radiator cap, thats where you would put your radiator cleaner and dex-cool in at. it is pressurized just like a normally radiator is with a normal radiator cap on it so dont open it when its hot! the resevoir cap should also have dex-cool stamped on it

SOURCE: Where is the thermostat on a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier?

there probably isn't a radiator cap. some cars only have a cap on the resivior tank. if your coolant is low, it'll show in that tank. follow your upper radiator hose to engine. thermostat should be at the end of it, depending on what engine you have

There is a technical service bulletin that talks about engine oil contamination causing your problem. The bulletin number is 04-06-02-007 and is dated August 2004. If they came out with a bulletin on this it must be a common problem.

How do you bleed the air from the cooling system of a 1999 v6 pontiac grand am


Refilling Procedure




Notice: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. If coolant other than DEX-COOL?"¢ is added to the system, the engine coolant will require change sooner: at 50 000 km (30,000 miles) or 24 months.






  1. Close the radiator drain cock.


  2. If previously removed, install the engine block drain plugs.


  3. When installing the drain plugs, use pipe sealer GM P/N 12346004.




    Important: On vehicles equipped with the 3.4L engine, open the coolant air bleed valve. The coolant air bleed valve is located on the top of the thermostat bypass pipe/heater pipe assembly. Close the valve once a continuous stream of coolant is expelled from the valve.



  4. Fill the surge tank to the base of the filler neck.


  5. Start the engine with the pressure cap off. Run the engine until the upper radiator hose starts to get hot.


  6. If the coolant level in the surge tank is low, add the proper mix of coolant until the level reaches the full cold line.



  7. Important: After servicing the cooling system, and if the vehicle is equipped with an intermittent low coolant light, an occasional low coolant light may be encountered during some extreme driving maneuvers. This complaint should be eliminated by removing the surge tank cap and adding coolant to a level just at or above the full cold line when the system is cold.



  8. Install the cap onto the tank with hand tight pressure.



Recycling Procedure




Important: Dispose of used coolant in a proper fashion, such as in a used coolant holding tank. Never pour used coolant down the drain. Ethylene glycol antifreeze is a very toxic chemical. Disposing of ethylene glycol antifreeze into the sewer system is both illegal and ecologically unsound.



There is currently no approved method for recycling used DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant into new DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant can be recycled into new conventional coolant. Consult local listings for coolant recycling facilities in your area.

What type of coolant should I use?


check with the handbook or go to a service dealer. Some are ethol glycol based and others are not. It will depend on the metals used in the engine construction.

Have a water sounding noise coming from the dash when accelerating


It sounds like you have air in your cooling system, Check your coolant level and add if your low. Fill the radiator if your low on coolant and the over flow tank with GM Dex cool with 50/50 mix of water. open the radiator cap to the first click to allow the air to work it's way through out the system and out through the radiator cap and in to the over flow. Once the engine cools down, the coolant in the over flow tank will flow into the radiator, so keep an eye on the over flow tank and refill to the full mark as needed. If you have not flushed out the coolant system, you may want to. The GM Dex cool has a life expectancy of 5 years or 150.000 miles, and should be replaced. The capacity of your cooling system is 11.5 liters, good luck.

Radiator hose leak and anit-freeze types


Problem isn't with plastic, its with aluminum... If you shorten the service intervals "normal" coolant will work equally well but you cannot extend intervals or acid buildup will make short work of radiator, heater core and cylinder head(s). As far as I know, you can get two years from normal coolant but I change out about half every year on my stuff and everything is fine.

I Suspect that you have AIR in your COOLING SYSTEM Fallow Procedures BELOW to Insure there is NO AIR IN COOLING SYSTEM


Draining and Filling Cooling System

Draining Procedure

Important: Do NOT add any engine coolant supplement sealant pellets to the cooling system. Drain and refill the engine cooling system every 5 years or 240,000 km, (150,000 mi) , whichever occurs first.

  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface.
  2. Remove and clean the coolant recovery reservoir.
Caution: Refer to Radiator Cap Removal Caution in Service Precautions.

  1. Remove the radiator cap when the engine is cool:
3.1. Slowly rotate the cap counterclockwise to the detention tab. Do not press down while rotating pressure cap. 3.2. Wait until any residual pressure, indicated by a hissing sound, is relieved. 3.3. After all hissing stops, press down on the radiator cap and rotate the cap counterclockwise in order to remove the cap.
Important: Recover and store used coolant in a used coolant holding tank and submit the used coolant for recycling on a regular basis. Do NOT pour used coolant down the drain. Ethylene glycol antifreeze is very toxic. Disposing of ethylene glycol into the sewer system or ground water is both illegal and ecologically unsound.

  1. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain valve in order to collect all of the used coolant.
  2. Open the radiator drain valve located at the bottom of the radiator tank. If only partial cooling system draining is required, drain enough coolant to perform the procedure.
  3. Open the air bleed valve on the thermostat housing 2 full turns
    1. Open the air bleed valve above coolant pump 2 full turns.
    2. Place a drain pan under the engine block drains in order to collect the used coolant.Important: Allow the coolant to drain completely.

      1. Remove both of the engine block drains.
        • The front left engine block drain is located between the starter motor and the engine oil filter.
        • The rear right engine block drain is located near the crankshaft position sensor.
      Filling Procedure
      Reinstall the engine block drains
    3. Close the radiator drain valve,
      1. Install the coolant recovery reservoir. Notice: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL coolant. If Coolant other than DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL is added to the system the engine coolant will require change sooner; at 50,000 km (30,000 mi) or 24 months.
      2. Slowly add a 50/50 mixture of GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL and clean, drinkable water to the radiator until the coolant level is at the base of the radiator fill neck.
      3. Wait for 2 minutes and reinspect the level of the coolant in the radiator. If necessary, add coolant to the radiator until the coolant level is at the base of the radiator fill neck.
      4. Install the radiator cap.Ensure that the radiator cap arrow points toward the radiator overflow tubeImportant: The air bleed valves are brass. Do NOT over-tighten the air bleed valves.

        1. Close the air bleed valve above the coolant pump.
          1. Close the air bleed valve on the thermostat housing.
          2. Fill the coolant reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL and clean, drinkable water. Caution: Refer to Radiator Cap Removal Caution in Service Precautions. Important: If the coolant temperature indicator turns ON, turn the engine OFF immediately and allow the engine to cool. Do NOT remove the radiator cap.
          3. Start the engine and allow the engine cooling fan to cycle on and off 3 times. If the low coolant indicator does not turn OFF and the coolant level is above the Full Cold mark on the coolant recovery reservoir, refer to Engine Coolant Temperature Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative.
          4. Turn off the ignition.
          5. Allow the engine to cool.
          6. Ensure that the engine coolant concentration is sufficient.

How do you change coolant on a 2005 chevy silverado 1500


Open the hood, and to the right you will see a big thick hose connected to the top of the radiator, if you look down the right hand side of the radiator, you will see a thin hose with the opening facing up at you and it is connected to the lower part of radiator, where there is a plastic wing nut like plug, which when loosened, allows the coolant flow to come out of the small hose, but make sure that the hose is pointed down, into a 2 gallon bucket, then loosen. Also, nothing will come out unless you take the cap off your radiator reserve which is that square-ish looking container filled with orange dex cool (not green) coolant.
hope this helps you,good luck
