Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

The hose leading from the Engine Coolant reservoir is no longer connected. Also...there is a hose connected to nothing at the bottom of the radiator. Do these two hoses need to be connected and if so, how? My truck is indeed overheating. However, there is water in the radiator, but obviously the coolant isn't getting to it.

Go to this site for a manual at the best prices I have seen. www.books4cars.com.

The engine coolant reservoir connects to the radiator on the top and the lower radiator hose usually connects to the water pump. I hope this helps.

How do I refill coolant, after being drained, in a 2003 Kia Sedona. Radiator cap not removable. Doesn't seem to be taking any out of the reservoir.


Try this remov upper radiator hose from engine block and fill that way without running the engine. Then when radiator is full meaning can no longer add coolant through hose reconnect hose start engine and add coolant to reservoir

How do I bleed a 2002 Mazda Millennia coolant system


There is a spicket on the bottom left or bottom right of the radiator on some vehicles not sure about the millenia but you shouldn't have to bleed your coolest system. If you're looking to flush the radiator let the engine cool off, get a container big enough to catch all of the coolant about 2 or 3 gallons (for proper disposal) disconnect bottom radiator hose and drain into your container, you can flush with water through reservoir opening or heater core hoses (if you feel you have enough experience to do so through heater core) and to fill, reconnect bottom hose (I use 50-50 but I suggest you use what's recommended in your area) there is a cap that says something like do not remove without checking owners manual that looks like a smaller radiator cap on the left side front of your engine connected to a radiator hose. Remove this cap with engine cold and fill to top of opening, start the engine and continue to add coolest untill full and with engine running, replace cap. Fill your reservoir and you should be good to go.

Car overheating


You may have a blown engine head gasket. Check your oil to see if it is milky because water is getting into the oil, and check the water to see if oil is getting into the coolant.
If you have either of these, you may need to have a new head gasket for the engine, and hopefully you do not have a cracked engine head.
This will require a fair bit of work to fix correctly. Your local garage or mechanic may be your next call.
There are some products you can use in the coolant for either of these, but it is only a temporary fix.

I am losing coolant on my car and I see that the coolant from the reservoir is leaking from a little black rubber hose that"s connected to the firewall.


The black rubber hose may be bad and needs replaced. This hose should connect to the radiator at the radiator cap and run along the firewall to the coolant reservoir. Also the coolant reservoir might be cracked and leaking on to the rubber hose, if this is the cause just replace the coolant reservoir which may be a dealer only item, check at you local auto parts store and they will tell you if it is a dealer only item. If you have to replace the coolant reservoir, make sure the car has not been run and the coolant at the radiator is cool, cause when the engine is hot the hot coolant runs into the coolant reservoir till it cools and returns to the radiator when engine is turned off and cools.

Your problem is something like either a hose clip loose /biting into a hose and split it/a metal hose rusted and has a pin hole or a welsh plug (core plug) leaking. or a water plate gasket IE W/Pump/Manifold etc
Because it drips of the centre of engine dosenot mean it coming from the bottom of engine...

Need to put antifreeze in the radiator of my dodge neon. Do I have to drain it first or is there a way to get antifreeze in it without draining it. And if I do have to drain it where is the plug?


The drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side. I see no reason to drain it all out unless you just want to change it. If you do our Neons take the orange radiator fluid Havoline "Dex-Cool" invented by Havoline. It has a very bad taste added to it to protect children and pets. I changed it at 74000 in my wife's 2003 Neon SXT using a 50/50 mix of Dex-Cool and distilled water to avoid any scaling residue.

Our Neons cannot use any other type as it will ruin the internals of your engine the coolant comes into contact with.
The anti freeze is to be changed at 100,000 miles. If your coolant reservoir tank (located in the engine compartment on the drivers side just under the windshield large white plastic bottle) is always filling up over time and spilling over you may need a new radiator cap.

The radiator cap lets some of the coolant out in to the reservoir tank as you drive and the coolant expands due to heat. When your radiator cools off a vacuum is created inside of your radiator at that time your radiator cap is to open it's valve and **** the coolant from the reservoir tank back into the radiator via the small hose that leads from just under your radiator cap to the reservoir tank.

Make sure the hose leading from just under your radiator cap to the reservoir tank has a tight seal at both ends as well as no leaks.

If your cap is not operating properly it will just keep letting coolant out and not letting the radiator **** it back in resulting low coolant level in the radiator.
