You have a leak. This will only lead to more problems plus air pockets which overheats the cooling system and engine. Get it fixed soon

Honda Odyssey Coolant System Prob.

You may have air in the system. Run the car with the cap removed and the defrosters on allowing air to escape. Add antifreeze as needed to keep full while running. Fluid level will drop as thermostat opens.

My 2000 jeep cheerokee keeps overheating

You may want to check first if you are loosing or have inadequate water or cooling fluids on your radiator. There may be a leak or the radiator cap may no longer prevent the steam from escaping. check the radiator fans if they are turning. You can check the fan if it is working by pulling out the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose near the engine. The fan should blow at full once you unplug it. Check also the water pump in the engine if there are leaks. You may have it replaced.

How do you flush and replace coolant for a 2001 ford Windstar?

Take off the lowest Collant hose that comes off the radiator, have a pan ready alot of fluid will come out. this will drain 80 persent of the fluid wich is more then enuf. after it has drained out then replace the hose and fill the car with a 50/50 mix, this can be bought at any auto parts store or even grocery store has them most of the time. take the cap off the radiator and fill it up. after it is full start the car with the cap off, now u need to top it off. Get the car hot and keep topping off the fluid be carfull as not to put the cap on then take it off after its realy hot. Watch the fluid lvl for a few days cus if you dont get all the air out you will need to keep topping it off.

Good luck

My trans fluid is mixing with my radiator fluid, what can i do.

I hate to contradict the prior poster, but I would not see how a blown head gasket could get transmission fluid into the radiator. Motor oil, yes, but transmission fluid, no.

the transmission fluid in your tranny runs out of the transmission and up into the radiator to cool it off.

So if there is transmission fluid in the radiator, I'd look for a leak in the radiator. If it is mixing the two fluids then the leak is probalby internal.

Remember that if the radiator is now 'mixing' water and transmission fluid, there is a possibility that the fluid/water mixture may be going back into the transmission as well

My 94 Z28 has a radiator low level light.

There are a few things that can cause this. The fluid level sensor located in the radiator accumulates scaling over the years. The scaling prevents the sensor from detecting the fluid level. One thing you can try is to use a wire with alligator clips on both ends. Clip one end to the sensor area of the radiator and the other to the battery ground or engine block. Leave it in place for a few days and see if helps.
Let me know.
