The copper plug (cylinder) goes into the engine so that the pointed end sticks out of the engine.

Is it time to junk 1999 alero 135k miles?


Where is the gallon of 50/50 going if no leaks and apparently not into the oil? Is it going out the exhaust which would be a bad Head gasket failure? So Some boil over due to overheat? Take the coolant tank cap off then start the car and see if bubbles, maybe steam eventually. If bubbles, they are probably the leaking combustion gases leaking through the Head gasket. Sometimes, retorque of the head bolts will slow the leak down. Otherwise need gasket replacement and possible head mill if it has "warped" or Junkyard heads that are good. You can confirm head gasket leak and location by a leak down test. You may be able to borrow tools from some of the auto parts stores. Have you used "leak stop" in the radiator? Sometimes that will block radiator cooling channels and cause overheating. Hopefully, that is the issue and a radiator replacement the fix. Could be a bad water pump, but if you get heat that is probably not the problem. I did that to a Chrysler many years ago and wife's car! Hope this helps.

Over heating


Hi. I assume that you already checked the thermostat valve. I believe that you have a beginning of head gasket problem or a small crack somewhere. The best test for head gasket, even being a time consuming test, is to remove all spark plugs, fill up the radiator, put one cylinder at top dead center, which means the cylinder is in explosion position, install a cylinder leak test hose attachment (from a cylinder leak tester that you can purchase a Harbor Freights) and connect a compressor hose. Observe if air bubbles comes from the radiator. Sometimes it takes longer to show up so be patience. I've had an Honda Civic that was taking over 5 minutes to shows bubbles. If it does, your head gasket is beginning to get bad. Good luck.

Water loss from radiator and bubbles when running.


Check your fill/refill bottle for cracks as most are made out of plastic and heat can crack them over time. hoses are a common source of leaks. if you are seeing bubbles then there is air circulating through the system some where, its common to open it and see the water flow but bubbles indicate a leak. the only other thing i can think of is to check your freeze plugs, you might have one damaged just enough to cause a small leak.

No heat on my mitsu montero sport 2001


either you have an air lock in the heater core or is leaking. first off pull the carpet around the floor and see if its wet or damp, also look for water marks to indicate water leakage, if the floor is wet then you have a leak.If its an air lock you need to raise the front of the vehicle so that the radiator cap is the highest point in the car, jacking it up usually works.start the car and turn the heater on to hot, warm the car up to normal operating temp then just fill the radiator and the air bubbles should come out.If you do this and you see a heap of small bubbles continually coming up really fast, then you have either a cracked head or a blown head gasket

CAR CONTINUES TOO RUN HOT AFTER REPLACING WATER PUMP, THERMOSTAT, AND RADIATOR, BEEN TOLD IT MAY HAVE AIR BLOCKAGE, DON'T THINK IT HAS A CRACKED HEAD OR BLOCK, DOES NOT LEAK WATER, NO WATER IN OIL, OR...


Try this.

With the engine cool remove the radiator cap. Now start the engine and let it warm up to the point where the thermostat opens. You can usually tell when this happens by checking the temperature of the upper radiator hose, and the coolant level in the radiator. It will start getting a lot hotter quickly when it does and the coolant level should drop.

While the engine is warming up, watch the coolant in the radiator for air bubbles. Fill up the radiator as needed while continuing to watch the coolant level. Having the radiator cap off while doing this allows the trapped air to escape more easily. If you do have a large air blockage then when the thermostat opens you should see a large drop in the coolant level. You want to keep the Radiator full. Once the air bubbles seem to have stopped you can replace the radiator cap.

You may have to repeat the process a couple times if there is a large amount of air trapped in multiple pockets.

A cracked head or block you can usually diagnose as there will be a lot of small bubbles coming out constantly while the engine is warming up, and even more bubbles if you rev the engine higher as the compressed air/fuel will be forced into the cooling system.

No heat in cab.


You did not BLEED the radiator and it's over heating.

Take off radiator cap when engine is COLD

Start engine

Let it idle until it's HOT

As it heats up you will notice air bubbles coming out of the radiator filler neck.

Let car run until you don't see any more bubbles

Fill radiator coolant to keep it topped up to the hot mark.

Put radiator cap back on once you hear the fans kick on.

Done

You should now have tons of heat

Providing your water pump is working

Running Hot


You may want to reconsider if the fan is working at it's full potential.It seems when the vehicle is moving the extra air flow compensates for the fan not blowing hard enough.Check for radiator obstructions such as leaves and debris.And check for small leaks.Also there may be an air pocket in the system which can still seem like the system is full.With vehicle cold take off radiator cap and run vehicle.Turn on heat to highest setting (blowing).When vehicle reaches thermostat rated temperature(opened thermostat) you will see coolant go down in radiator.Fill radiator while the engine rpm's are up (have someone hold the throttle to where the rpm's are at about 1800) then put on cap before returning to idle.This should remove the pocket if there is one

NO COOLANT IN RADIATOR, BUT COOLANT IS RESOUVIOR


First thing to do is start it up and stand by the exhaust, and if you can smell anything like antifreeze chanses are its a head gasget, if you don't see any puddles under car its got to be going someware and chanses are its out the exhaust. The only true way to know where its going is to do a cooling pressure test.
