Seems pretty easy to me?

But there may be some variance depending on 8 or 6 cylinder, supercharged or not, etc.

SOURCE: Coolant Loss from Overflow Tank

It may be you have a leak in your head gasket and the coolant is burning up in your engine. Does your oil look milky at all and is your exhaust smoke white at all. It may be a small enough leak that it burns off enough without any symptoms other than you having to fill up the tank..

Now you can test if you have a leak in your head gasket. If your pressure cap is good, start the car cold with radiator cap off, (and radiator full), it will put up steady bubbles, the worse it is leaking the worse the bubbles will "flow"!

An occasional "small bubble" is not a problem, as it will push out air trapped inside engine till it has heated up and thermostat has opened.

Another cause could be if you had the thermostat changed and it was inverted by accident. The "pellet" end (one with the little "wart" around the shaft from top to bottom), goes down in water (from engine)

SOURCE: my coolant expansion tank is overflowing after 20 minutes running

There could be a couple of reasons for this,

1. The thermostat could be stuck closed creating more pressure than normal. Your temp guage would show a higher temperature or you have another blockage in the system.
2. The expansion tank is too full.
3. The cylinder head may be leaking. If you fill the system run the engine to normal temperature with the radiator cap off, look for quite large bubbles coming out of the filler cap. If the head is badly leaking, they can be like a volcano. The temp will rise quickly from cold and the engine will overheat in a short distance.
It does seem odd that it would only spill over after 20 mins. Suspect that the expansion is over full first if your temp is normal. Let it run until it stops and see where the level is when the engine is cold.

What cause lower radiator hose to collapse after cool down


Hi Larry:
Good observation. Not too many people would spot that.
When the engine is hot, the coolant is hot and expands. At the filler cap for the radiator, there will be a hose that goes to the overflow tank. As the coolant fluid expands, it flows through thie tube into the overflow tank.
When the engine is turned off, as it cools, the volume of coolant in the engine and radiator contracts, and is supposed to suck fluid back from the overflow tank.
I'm suspicious that something is preventing this from happening so the vacuum in the engine coolant system is collapsing the hose.
WHAT TO DO?
- Check the radiator cap. Make sure it is functioning correctly. Make sure that it is correctly installed and screwed all the way on.
- Check the coolant overflow hose. Make sure it is not plugged.
Odds are that you will find the problem quite quickly.
Cheerfuls.

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.

Overflowing from expansion tank on a 2003 chevy malibu


Have a cylinder leakage test performed to check your head gasket. It dosn't have to overheat to have a head gasket problem. A leakage test checks if looseing combustion gases to the cooling system which would presurise the system higher than normal which causes the tank to overflow.

Leaking coolant not overheating 2003


You are not filling it above the "full" mark, right ?
It has to have some space in the tank to allow hot coolant to expand.

Are you saying that you have oil in your coolant overflow tank? If so, then it sounds like you either have a blown head gasket or cracked head.

Overflow tank appears to be leaking as I find fluid on the ground. the truck doesn't overheat or warm hot. how difficult is it to remove the overflow tank?


Before removing the overflow tank check:-
1) the pressure cap is of correct specification and serviceable,
2) the overflow tank is not over-filled- space most be allowed for normal expansion of coolant.
The overflow tank should not be difficult to remove if it is necessary.

Low Coolant light


Sounds like your sensor unit in your coolant overflow tank. Like nearly everything man made that floats, they will eventually leak (become water logged). This is a relatively cheap fix, as long as the light is coming on and the coolant level in the overflow tank is between the MIN and MAX lines in the overflow tank. This means that the float in there is dropping below the actual fluid level (watter logged) and you need to get a replacement sensor unit (aka sending unit) for the overflow tank.

Otherwise, if the coolant level in the overflow tank IS BELOW the MIN level line on the tank, then you are losing coolant somewhere and that is when things start to get expensive (might be a radiator problem, head gasket, cylinder head, heater core, etc).
