It could be that the radiator cap seal had perished and it is not holding the system pressure as the engine warms up. The spitting out will usually occur when the engine is stopped and the residual heat in the engine can result in boiling of the coolant inside the engine. Replacing the cap should fix the problem.

1996LINCOLN MACH III LOW COOLANT MESSAGE AND OVER HEAT x2


Sounds like sticking thermostat. Replace thermostat if you see no leaks anywhere else.
You need to drain out any bad coolant or water when you replace thermostat and refill with concentrated antifreeze until you have at least 50% antifreeze water ratio.
You have to bleed the engine with new antifreeze solution so there's no air. I always go to youtube and see how mechanics do each engine bleed. Search your car and engine and `coolant flush'. don-ohio

My car is over heating i had new thermostat put in it was fine for alittle while now is overheating again and antifreeze is pouring out of the car what is the problem.

93 lincoln mark v111 antifreeze radiator, how do i bleed air out of rad, coolant from coolant bottle into radiator?


When you top off the radiator you fill it to the neck where the cap goes. When the engine heats up the antifreeze eventually will distribute and the excess will go into the overflow bottle.

After the car cools, it will draw the antifreeze from the overflow tank into the radiator. Then check the level line on the overflow bottle(tank) for the normal amount of antifreeze per marks on the bottle.

You should have your radiator cap checked for its pressure rating. Use the type of cap which allows for an overflow system. The older caps would not let the antifreeze flow both ways.

1992 plymouth voyager keeps overheating, i have to put nearly a half of a bottle of 50/50 in every other day. i have no visable leaking under the car or on the engine. i have replaced the radiator,...


Sometimes the pipe that runs under the intake will leak. Can you smell antifreeze burning while you are driving? Another way to tell, is to let the vehicle run with the cap off. IF you get alot of bubbles out of the radiator, you have a cracked head, or a bad head gasket which is also a fairly common problem. It will push the antifreeze out of the radiator, and cause it to overheat.

What are all the reasons why a vehicle overheat? Why did the gauge needle didn't show the overheat?


The sensor is in the coolant flange on the end of the cylinder head. The coolant flange is made of plastic and after time they will leak coolant. If no water is in the flange the sensor will not read hot.

98 crv still overheating


I hate to be the one who tells you but,if your radiator cores arent blocked as you said you have your radiator fixxed,its a head gasket,antifreeze is leaking by the head gasket and going into the piston chamber when the piston goes up it pushes the fluid back into the radiator,check your oil distick for a milky white look,antifreeze in the oil,if your car starts to have white smoke its antifreeze getting into the exaust ports either way head gasket

Over flow bottle bubbles when I stop running it.


If the gauges read normal and the fans are working properly and the vehicle dosen't overheat. I would suggest that it's the normal operation of the vehicle.

The overflow bottle is there because when the vehicle get's hot it draws in the extra coolant from the overflow. When the engine cools down it will push the extra coolant back into the overflow, that's what the radiator cap is for, it's not just a cover for the radiator. At a certian pressure the radiator cap will release the coolant to the overflow bottle. Otherwise the super heated coolant would have nowhere to expand to and blow apart hoses and such.

One other thing to check is if the coolant is a proper mix of antifreeze and water. You can buy a coolant check tool from any auto store, they don't cost too much.

Tip: Use distilled water instead of tap water (or use pre-mixed antifreeze). In some cars regular tap water will speed up corrosion in the cooling system.
