Stop radiator leak


The stop leak won't help, it's only for very small leaks. It will pour right out the hole with the coolant. I'm afraid you are stalled there and will need a tow.

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.

I accidently poured motor oil in my coolant and car started smoking. I't a 2001 ford taurus. What can I do to save my car and engine/ HELP!


drain the water don't use it again, Put an ordinary water and warm up the engine. Do this several times and keep observing the water on the radiator with an open cap. Use water flushing if available.. on final stage use coolant mix to radiator water.

My 92 Ford Ranger 2WD 4 cylinder recently overheated. I pulled over and added water. Continued on, then it overheated again. After having it towed home, it will not start. It is turning over, just not...


When you added the water was the engine still hot? When you filled it, was the engine off, or running? Pouring cold water into an overheated engine, especially when the engine is not running, will crack the engine block-fatal. check for oil in coolant or coolant in the oil, check compression-if all are good, start checking for spark (ignition module) or fuel (sound of fuel pump when key is turned on)-good luck.

Water pouring out when poured into radaitor


You have a bad casting plug in the side of the engine. A lot of people call them freeze plugs because they pop out if the coolant freezes. They also rust through. They are driven in place and the size can be looked up at the parts store. You will want to change all of them . Lee

Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop


I had the same problem two weeks ago. I have a 2006 Mini Cooper. Brought it into the shop. They changed out the themostat (under warranty). The service advisor said that the 2005 and 2006 Mini's had a problem with the themostat's.

Good luck.
