Question about 1992 Buick Regal

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Buick Regal, and my coolant light was on the other day, and after I added some fluid to the overflow tank, it is still on. How do I add the coolant to the radiator itself? because I think that is what I have to do.

3.1 liter?

If so the level sensor is in the reservoir. Sometimes the level gets stuck if the coolant gets low. Some gentle whacking of the reservoir with a rubber mallet is usually enough to get the light to turn out.

3.8 liter?

When the car is cold remove the radiator cap on the passenger side of the radiator. Add coolant until full.

I have a 1992 Buick regal that overheats at speeds of 40 mile n hour it has a new radiator, thermos stat, has been flushed an filled and bled have not changed the water pump when it overheats all of m


It is more than likely your water pump. Can you run it in park with the radiator cap off. The cap on the radiator not the overflow tank. When the temp opens the thermostat you should see flow if the pump is good no flow it is probably bad. If you don't see flow check the upper hose for temp and the lower hose. If the upper line is barely warm and the lower hose is significantly hotter, it is either water pump or thermostat, but since you replaced the thermostat I would be back to water pump. BTW you should use either a contact thermometer or an infrared to check hoses, although it was done by hand in the old days.

My low coolant light flashes on and off then it will stay on.I have checked my coolant level it is good what could be the problem? 1999 Buick regal


Make sure you are checking the coolant level in the radiator as well as in the overflow tank. The sensor is located in the radiator, so if the level in the overflow tank is good, it could still be low in the radiator.

1992 Buick Regal transmission fluid getting into engine.... how is this possible? Notice it because oil level keeps increasing without adding oil, oil consistency changes and smoke out of tail pipe.......


Your radiator is connected to the transmisiom to cool the transmission. the tank in the radiator has ruptured and transferring fluid to where it should not be. solution replace radiator. This will transfer trans fluid to cooling system and vice versa. I can not see the trans oil ending up in the engine oil sump for any reason?

97 Buick Regal - Fill Coolant Light came on, the tank was drained to the bottom. When I fill up the radiator reserve tank the fluid is coming out of a small, 1/2 inch diameter maybe, black rubber hose...


The heater core inside the passenger compartment is leaking. The water is draining through the Air Conditioner condensor drain tube. Don't plug the drain tube, the passenger side floor will get wet.

First, drain cooling system (or be quick) and disconnect the two heater hoses that are going into the firewall and splice the ends together with a 5/8" garden hose splicer.
The leak will stop, but your heater will not heat the interior.

Replace the heater core....

My low coolant light is flickering on and off. I flushed the system today. No other symptoms. no overheating or leaks. this is on a 1995 Buick Regal Custom V6.


It could be that the low coolant sensor is just dirty. You should be able to follow a wire to the top part of your radiator, to the sensor, or it might be in the overflow tank, take it out and clean it, and see if that will do it, if not, replace it.

Low Coolant light flashing on 1996 Buick Regal 3.8


The low coolant sensor should be located in the passenger side radiator tank, You need to take it out and clean the sludge off of it for it to work right. Or you can just unplug it and forget about it, the light will go out and it won't cause any problems.

I smell coolant


if you can smell it it must be in the cab andf the only way the coolant can leak in there is throuhg the heater matrix which is located under the dashboard, a way to find out is to check the floor for any excess moisture. if this is the case then it will def be that.
