Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Over fill tank is filling up when truck is running. Heat is always good but seems to be taking the fluid (antifreeze) from the radiator. The other day is was back to normal levels and the radiator was full?

    Maybe I wasn't clear. It continually fills the over fill tank and only once did it subside when cooled. Other times the level stays up and seems to be taking and depleting the radiator of the fluid. When cooled it only sometimes goes back to the radiator.

    Thank you ,

Hi! When filling up the fluid reservois please make sure that it sits on the max/full level. If you overfill it the fluid will overflow when the engine is hot for there will be no fluid circulation. The reason why it sits on a normal level the other day is that the fluid subsided after the overfill. Hope this shed some light. Have a good one and thank you for using FixYa!

Over heating


Try checking your antifreeze levels. If you antifreeze tank is low try filling it to the "Fill" or "Full" level. If your antifreeze tank is empty, remove your radiator cap, (make sure the engine has cooled off. If you try to open it while it's hot, you could get sprayed with hot antifreeze) and fill the radiator slowly. Then refill your antifreeze tank. Remember to always mix the antifreeze with water (50/50 mix) for full protection.

Radiator tank filling procedure


take off the radiator cap and fill the rad with antifreeze. start the montor and keep watching the level of the antifreeze and keep adding as necessary. when the termostat opens you sould shee a sudden drop in level.... keep adding antifreeze. squeezing the upper rad hose will help remove air bubbles. BE EXTREMELY CARE OF THE FAN AND OTHER MOVING PARTS TO PREVENT INJURY. after you are satisfied that you have added enough fluid put the rad cap back on. fill the overflow tank to the leven it indicates.... take it for a drive and let it cool down. open the rad cap and top of the fluid if necessay.

How much antifreeze to add to an emty raterator and over flow tank for a 96 toyota corolla


The best method is to fill the radiator up with a mixture of antifreeze and water. The mixture details should be on the antifreeze container. Once the radiator is full let the car run until the thermostat opens up and you should see the level of fluid go down in the radiator. Fill the radiator again while the thermostat is opened. Then add fluid to the overflow tank to the fill line. That should do it. If you have put in too much it will run into the overflow container when it is not needed in the car.

My 2001 Jeep Cherokee is overheating after flushing the radiator and changing the thermostat. It is blowing cold air


Did you make sure you filled the radiator up and got the overflow tank up to the correct level? Sometimes when you flush and drain the system and fill it back up air pockets can get trapped in the system. Start the jeep up with the radiator cap off and wait for the coolant to start flowing and when the air pockets make their way through they will escape and you can add more antifreeze.

Also, did you make sure you installed the thermostat so it is facing the right direction?

Good Luck

How do I change the cooling antifreeze in my car


make sure engine is cold. find drain at bottom of radiator, remove, let pour into drain pan . make sure you recycle it according to your local laws. you can fill up with regular water (using garden hose), run engine and flush again.fill radiator from top cap, close, keep filling coolant tank as req. while engine running. main thing for safety, do not remove radiator cap while engine is warm or running. you can open the fluid tank while running or hot, so work from there

Anti freze place


there will be a cap on top of your radiator and also a reservoir tank near the firewall that will be a semi transparent container holding either orange or green coolant (do not mix the two colors)
