Refilling radiator

Before you add coolant always make sure that the engine is cool never add coolant to a hot engine.Next remove the radiator cap and fill it to the top with a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water.After you have filled the radiator with the coolant water mixture put the radiator cap back on and then fill the reserve tank to the cold level mark on the side of the bottle

If you are talking about the low coolant warning light, be sure and check the radiator along with the overflow tank.
If the cooling system is full, the sensor has failed.

Warm up has heat/noheat blow back at reserve tank losing fluid

It sounds like you have a leaking head gasket. What's happening is the coolant is leaking through a crack in the head gasket and air is being pumped into the cooling system on the compression stroke causing the coolant to blow back into the reserve tank. The cooling system can't maintain pressure so now your heater doesn't work correctly either.

Low coolant in reserve every week

Absolutely have to stop using it, until the issue is resolved,
just common sense

There are no Fluids on any vehicle that are consumed
or need topping off,ever

You have a leak & it has to be found

If you see no coolant leaks & you need to really
spend time looking.

Have to crawl all over & under the vehicle & don't miss a thing,
check both hot & cold & after a trip

You could have a head gasket going & that is not good,
you won't see any leaks with that situation.

I have a 99 Mercury Sable Wagon that keeps boiling the radiator fluid out of the reserve tank. The temp gauge isn't reading hot, though. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Sounds to me like a blown head gasket. Even if your vehicle is not warmed up, if your reserve tank is boiling fluid out of it when the engine is cool, it's most likely losing compression from it all going to your reserve tank. And thats why it's fluids coming out of your reserve tank. BUT, if your radiator is clogged then the same thing could happen. So i would start out cheap before you have to replace a HG.

Transmission fluid in radiator reserve tank 2002 saturn l300 v6 changed the radiator and stioll have yellow goo in reserve tank could it be the oil cooler

It could be and inspect your transmission fluid and have it serviced if it is the transmission fluid and also your engine oil. Engine coolant is corrosive to the bearings in your transmission and engine and can cause you to loose which ever you have cross contamination with.
If it's transmission fluid, then you'll loose your transmission is not corrected and if it's engine oil. Then your going to loose the engine shortly if not corrected.
Sorry for the bad news and thank you for using fixya.

Why is all the fluid staying in reserve tank-none

The line to the reserve tank to the radiator could be plugged up or you have a loose radiator cap or a bad seal causing the tank to hold whats in it. The coolant system is a pressurized system and if a seal is bad or a line is plugged you will experience this problem for the pressure is not there to take whats needed from the tank to deploy in the coolant system

Check ebay for an aftermarket one or similar....hit the junkyard too. Save yourself some cash from having to go to the dealership.

The reservoir is meant to catch the coolant as it overheats in the radiator after it comes back from flowing through the engine. It is a good idea to have the reservoir because after it catches the fluid from expanding, it cools down and gets sucked back into the radiator. So yes, you need a reservoir.
