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.

Water loss from radiator and bubbles when running.


Check your fill/refill bottle for cracks as most are made out of plastic and heat can crack them over time. hoses are a common source of leaks. if you are seeing bubbles then there is air circulating through the system some where, its common to open it and see the water flow but bubbles indicate a leak. the only other thing i can think of is to check your freeze plugs, you might have one damaged just enough to cause a small leak.

I had just replace the thermostat on my 2003 Pontiac it still over heating what can be the problem what can i do to fix this issue .. ??


youve replaced the thermustat in your car

your car may be air locked

remove the cap for the coolent bottle and let the car run for a bit you should get bubbling and a boiling sound comming from the bottle

worning: hot liquid dont stand too close while the bubling is going on wate till it stops then shut off the car

(keep a close eye on the temp gadge while the car is running after the air has bubbled out if thecoolent is low replace with the rite coolent

with any pontiac/chev vehicle its usually "DEX-COOL" its usually orange in color (dont put in the green stuff youll ruen your moter) if it calls for the other coolent (the green stuff) put that in and not the orange stuff

i hope this helps you i hope you get your car fixed

98 plymonth breeze has the ''check engine'' light on all the time!


Turn the key on, off, on, off, on, off, on and the codes for the check engine light should come up where the odometer usually reads.

Start with engine cool. Remove rad cap, top up coolant, start engine, & turn on heater (not defrost). let it run until up to normal operating temperature & radiator fan comes on, then shuts off. Let it do this about 3 times before you put rad cap back on & top up return bottle to proper level. Every once in a while, rev engine slightly for a few seconds while your doing it, to speed up bleed by increasing flow. Keep an eye on temperature gauge for too hot, and fan not coming on, if so, shut it off.

1997 olds. auora overheating


feel of the top hose, if it's soft when the car is running and at operating temperature then it's probably air in the system, not allowing the pump to pick up the antifreeze. To get the air out let the car cool completely (like overnight) then fill the reservoir, leave the cap off and run the car until it comes up to normal operating temp. (watch to see you keep enough antifreeze so the tank doesn't go empty.
My 97 Aurora did the same thing and this fixed it.
