Is the engine temperature normal when driving or is it on the high side? After a short run turn engine off and check coolant hoses, be careful they may be hot to touch, squeeze the top hose, if it is very hard, you may find the coolant pressure is too high causing the coolant to leak from overflow, this could be caused by faulty thermostat, head gasket or poor coolant circulation, also check cooling fan is operating when hot

My antifreeze keeps turning brown and full of sludge. Why is this happening?


most probably a failed/split transmission cooler in the radiator tank
If that is the case , the fix is a new radiator and a chemical flush of the radiator
get quotes from an accredited radiator shop after getting a proper diagnosis of the fault

How do I let the old anti freezer out of a 1995 Chevy Lumina?


Very simple locate the radiator on the car and at the bottom/underneath of the car there will be a drain plug either on the far left or far right of the car's radiator. Just unscrew it and catch the old antifreeze and dispose of it appropriately. Once drained, simply refill the radiator and let it burp a few times then put the cap back on and continue to fill the overflow reservoir to full cold level line. Then start the car and let it run for about 10-15mins continually watching/filling the reservoir until the car is warm and it doesn't seem to be removing any more antifreeze from the reservoir. FINALLY let the car cool completely about an hour or so. And check the coolant one last time, the overflow reservoir that is, make sure it is filled to the full cold level line. NOTE: BE SURE NOT TO OVERFILL OR IT MAY LEAK OUT WHILE CAR IS RUNNING. Hope this helps

1997 Ford Taurus gets a little hot while driving. Afraid to drive long distances.


try burping the cooling system a few times or could be your thermostat. as far as the belt squeek, you can take a litle bit on silicone grease and put it on the belt in one spot with the car off. let it run for a little bit and the squeek should stop

Car overheats, losing antifreeze...the overflow coolant reservoir leaks out onto the ground when I try to put antifreeze in there - so could this cause my car to overheat? I have had the antifreeze drained...


Hello, if your car has a blown head gasket and exhaust is entering the coolant system, it will continue to run hot until it is repaired. Using pure antifreeze will make it worse. It should be at least 1/2 water. If the coolant reservoir didn't leak you could probably drive a few more miles, but not many, before it overheats again. All that is doing is giving you a little more capacity. If you continue to run the engine hot you are going to do more serious damage to it.
I suggest you have the head gasket replaced. That stuff you put in there seldom works, and if it does work, it's only temporary.

I hope this helps.

Overheating light flashing after driving less than a mile new water pumptimijng belttemp sensorfsn sensor still same problem


Either the cooling system was not properly 'burped' to release any extra air in the system, or the Head Gaskets may be bad.

Check for oil in the the coolant/radiator/overflow tank and white steam from the exhaust.

Car is leaking antifreeze from underneath of car


I would check and replace the thermostat if it is bad, recheck the connections of the heater hoses to the heater core, and if none of these are bad, the heater core is most likely gone bad. Also, depending on where the overflow canister is, and if the radiator cap has gone bad, it might be letting too much antifreeze out of the system and overfilling the overflow canister.
