Antifreeze has an odor. With the engine idling sniff the tailpipe, if you smell anitfreeze you have a situation where antifreeze is getting into a combustion chamber and is being passed out the exhaust. This is not good and requires an expensive repair ASAP. If no odor there, unscrew the oil fill cap, turn it over and look for foam. If it is foamy then your coolant is getting into your lubrication system, again not good and a repair is needed. If it is not being sucked into the engine, then it is leaking somewhere and that should be easy to spot. A green or orange puddle where you park.

1999 chevy express van.I have two hoses that run off of my reserve tank one of the goes to the radiator. and another hose that looks like it goes on the acumlator


From the reserve tank, one hose should go to the radiator and the other should be for overflow. Sometimes that one goes to an accumulator, sometimes its left dangling cause its just there to drain any excess fluid from expansion in a hot system. Depends on the vehicle. If its in an enclosed system or plugged you would get an excess of back pressure which would further heat up the coolant and inhibit flow. Just leave it there. If it pukes coolant when hot then its doing its job. Don't overflow your reserve tank.

Overheating


Most common reason for overheating is 1. low coolent lvl 2. faulty thermostat (stuck closed). 3. Faulty water pump preventing coolent from circulating through engine.

Check coolent lvl in radiator when engine is cool by removing the cap and filling it up till you can see the coolent, replace cap and try. If you have the proper lvl of coolent. Replace your thermostat, which is located under the thermostat housing (right underneith where your top radiator hose connects). Fill with coolent and see if that helps. Next test is to start the car and let it run till it gets to normal operating temp or near (180 to 220 degrees F) Pinch your upper radiator hose and see if you can feel a gush, or flow of water rush through the hose when you release your pinch hold on the hose, (by pinch, I mean to try and totally squeeze the hose together) If you don't feel the rush of coolent through the hose, then your waterpump is faulty. If your car quits overheating, but your heater hoses don't get hot, then they are probably stopped up at the point where they connect to the engine. Its a common area for gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up.

Cannot locate cold fill line on impala 2008 coolant overflow tank


Just fill it up 1/4 full with coolent. Coolent expands when hot, which will fill the tank up more, so don't over fill too much. If you think your low on coolent, let the engine cool down, and open the radiator cap and fill it full from there. Filling the tank, will not add ANY coolent to the radiator untill it warms up (expands) and cools down (contracts pulling in coolent from the tank only at this moment.)

I fill the coolent resevore up and radiator go for a bit of a drive and the coolent isnt comeing out of the resevore into the raidiator wat could it be


why do you keep filling it up? If you overfill either the radiator or the reservoir it is as bad as not filling up...
Is there a temperature issue?
If the reservoir is NOT using, or appearing to 'use' any coolant.. then that is a good thing.. it IS a reserve tank, a reservoir.. tank for overspill and should never be more than 1/3 full..

YES. But dont overfill it. Slowly add coolant to the low full line and let it run a while, like 10 minutes. if the level goes down fill it to the full line. After it cools for 30 minutes recheck the level and add as needed.

99 Chev suburban 5.7 liter, antifreeze keeps leaking have to fill reserve and radiator evryother day, (new radiator) no white smoke, oil looks ok, cant see leak anywhere on the ground or frame??? Wheres it...


check the condition of the reserve tank and the hose from the reserve tank to the radiator for leaks if no leaks there have the Radiator cap presure tested . also this could be a air lock in the engine if the radiator is new with the engine running and the heater on hot observe the fluid level in the radiator with the cap off if it drops as it warms add more coolant this will purge the air .

Coolant problem


you cant really fill up your coolant wrong, my sister once filled up her coolant with oil and caused damage, but the coolent wont have anything to do with your car shaking. does it go away when you rev it up alil, sounds like you need a tune up like you have a spark plug misfiring or a bad wire, replace plugs and wires if it doesnt fix it i would inspect coil but pretty sure plugs and wires should do it. its about time according to age and average milege. im confident this will fix your problem so good luck with the fix, please leave feedback =) and have a good day
