Add it to the clear plastic overflow tank. --- Underhood Check

  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. How do I add coolant - 89531p07.jpg

    How can i tell if my radiator is clogged and not holding pressure and losing fluid


    Clogged radiator and leaking radiator are two different problems.
    Either one, warm the car up first. Just turn it on and let idle until it comes to normal operating temperature. Once there, turn the car off and pop the hood. Carefully, touch across the radiator from one side to the other. If the radiator is clogged, one side will be cool to the touch. If one side is just cooler than the other, that is normal.
    For leaks, just look around the radiator and its hoses for coolant leaks. Then look around the engine. Specifically the head(s), hoses, and freeze plugs. If no coolant is seen in those areas and your still losing coolant, you may have a blown headgasket and leaking coolant internal to the engine.

    LOW COOLANT LIGHT


    Just had a go-round with same problem in an 87 Cavalier. Had to take off radiator cap, add coolant, squeeze bottom radiator hose. After no more bubbles, add coolant, squeeze top radiator hose. Squeeze bottom again. Add coolant as needed. The air was because it was run low when the radiator cap gasket failed and coolant boiled out. Never got the overheat notice on digital dash or idiot light. Make sure you have a new radiator cap.

    2000 impala red circle recessed in radiator is leaking replace repair? ect...


    It seems that the "black bolt" is the bolt-shaped sheet metal around the fitting for your trans cooler line. If you are certain that your connection is good and the leak is coming from around that fitting then you will have to replace your radiator as the area around the fitting is probably cracked. Take a good close-up look, with an inspection mirror and a light, to try to determine from where the fluid is leaking.
    Does your other line have an O-ring?

    We just put in new head gaskets and radiator tank in my 2000 impala. The problem seemed to be fixed except for the fact that the engine now has a knock when you are coming to a stop and acts like its going...


    often times it is easier to pay someone. those GM V-6 engine blocks have cracks in addition to being warped. so merely replacing the merely the gaskets can accomplish nothing. perhaps some thought as to a rebuilt engine exchange may be in order.

    water out of the exhaust can indicate discharge of built up moisture in the system, or perfect combustion. however coolant and coolant odor out the exhaust indicates what you think it indicates, that is coolant is leaving the cooling jacket and getting into the combustion chamber

    Oil in the radiator


    If there is oil in the coolant and nobody put it there it generally points to either a cracked block or blown head gasket. Is the car running at all?
