Question about 1995 Buick Skylark

1 Answer

AAA had to bring me home the other evening. Coolant was pouring out of the bottom of the car. Wasn't coming from the radiator. What could be the problem. I'm not a young person and would appreciate knowing any possible reason before going to service station. On a fixed income and not a lot of money available. Thank you.

1996 Olds Cutlass Supreme BAD coolant leak. Pour in it pours out the bottom. Drive a bit there is smoke or steam coming from the right side up by the battery. What could be causing this?

Could be one of a few things, but the most common and first consideration would involve a badly ruptured radiator hose which is leaking onto a hot exhaust system. Its should not be that difficult to isolate the hose and replace it, refill your radiator with the proper anti-freeze/water mix appropriate to your geographical area and take it from there. If it's leaking that badly, it almost has to be a hose, or more than one, or perhaps the radiator itself. . . this doesn't sound like, on the surface anyway a serious, expensive fix - even if it is the radiator itself.

How do you flush?

The cooling system?
Loosen the bottom rubber radiator hose and let the coolant run out.

Buy a can of coolant system flush. Reconnect the bottom radiator hose, pour the can of coolant flush in and top up with plain water. Drive the car for about 10 minutes until the engine is warm.

Then remove the bottom radiator hose and let the water run out.
Reconnect the bottom hose and fill the cooling system with coolant/water mix. Run the engine for 5 minutes and then check the coolant level

Cadillac cts radiator

it may be the hose itself, or the radiator, or a nearby line that lead from the radiator to a heater core, or a broken plug in an un-used port, or even a bad radiator cap - it depends where the water is actually coming from. is it coming from the hose or from where the hose connects to the radiator, or is it pouring down from somewhere else and just pooling under the hose.

My car started over heating shortly after I had to accelerate kind of hard to avoid getting hit the fluid levels are good and it's not leaking and there was a sizzling noise coming from around the motor ...

It could be a radiator cap, or you could have the wrong ratio of water to coolant. You should have at least 50% of the radiators capacity filled with coolant. I wouldn't go more than 70% coolant/30% water. You can buy it already premixed so all you have to do is pour it. Another solution is a radiator cap. Pressurizing the water/coolant in the radiator brings up the boiling point several degrees, depending on how much pressure it is under. I would suggest at least a 13-18 lbs cap on your radiator.

Coolant leak, coolant poured out bottom of car..problem? pump?

Sure could be. Or a hose or a gasket somewhere.
You'll need to fill up the radiator and run the engine to look for the leak.
It may have to get up to operating temp before you see anything.

How do i put water in my radiator?

you need to replace thermostat and radiator cap.look under hood around engine compartment.look for a radiator cap near radiator,add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system to bring up boiling point.pure water will cause engine run hotter because water evaporate away,remove radiator pour coolant in the radiator until coolant stop dropping in the radiator now some vechicle pour coolant in the coolant overflow jug,pour coolant until coolant level stop dropping and the coolant level stay at cold full mark.start engie let idle few minutes, watch coolant level in radiator if coolant start dropping add more coolant, when coolant level stop dropping put radiator cap back on let engine idle until both top radaitor hose and bottom coolant hose get warm turn off engine wait until it get cool then take a large rag slightly open radiator just a litle at a time to keep from getting scaled.once radiator remove add more coolant if low,put radiator cap back on start the engine let it idle watch the temp gauge if temperature gauge going hot zone stop engine wait until cool then add more coolant,keep doing this until engine stop overheating going into hot zone and coolant level stop dropping,make the coolant overflow jug coolant level stay at full cold mark, dont let jug run empty if so air will get in the coolant system causing engine to overheat.

What's the prob with my Vw Gti vr6, when I used

most coolant stop leaks will not work with anti-freeze at all,only clear water only. please read the label on the product and follow it to the letter.most stop leaks will not work under extreme conditions,such as a bad water pump or missing water pump belt,or bad thermostat. with common leaks along the radiator SEAMS they may help some. please seek a mechanic soon,you can damage your engine without proper coolant in it. which can lead to an engine replacement. where the steam is coming from is where your coolant leak is. it may only be a bad or faulty hose. a simple pressure tester rented from auto-zone or avanced automotive will reveal your leak.please follow the instructions with the rental equipment,and you will find the leak in the coolant system quickly. thank you for choosing

Where is the radiator bolt located, to drain the water out of the radiator

should be at the bottom of the rad with a little hose coming from it .(the hose points down and goes nowhere just ther to help drain) if you cant find it you can also pull the bottom rad hose off and drain it that way.

How do I change the coolant

On the bottom of the radiator, there is a drain valve, just open it and drain fluid into a container, if you want faster drain, remove bottom radiator hose.
