I had this same problem and successfully patched it with an epoxy putty made for radiators and the like. Worked great.

SOURCE: Overheating and change engine oil ... oil was changed one week ?

it seems like the radiator of your car needs attention. check for coolant level in it, when its cold. if les add some coolant and then see if the problem persists.
--than there are chances of chocking in the coolant pipes, may be they not reached to engine..  
--Check the chock,, that it is not turned on. 
--May be sum loosing nut in engine.

SOURCE: 90 legacy, thermostat keeps showing

hi it could be a faulty water temp sensor, however if the car was overheating you would notice as it would be gurgling or steaming in the engine bay somewhere, it may also be a sick water pump or cracked radiator

Heater working intermittent


With the car parked on an even and level surface..

Check the coolant level in the engine compartment. There should be a reservoir that has markings for levels of coolant depending on whether the engine is hot or cold. Add a 50/50 water /coolant mixture to the reservoir to bring it to the correct level.

After the engine has been off for a couple hours
(cold), you should also check the coolant level in the radiator. Thi sis especially important if the reservoir was low or empty. Open the cap and start the engine, with the heat set to hot and fan to high. Watch the coolant level in the radiator as the engine temperature rises. If it is really cold out, you may need to rev the engine to 1000 - 1500 RPM to get it warmed up fully. Once the engine is at operating temperature, top off the radiator with the same 50/50 mixture you used for the reservoir. You should be able to see the coolant flowing in the radiator, and there should be plenty of heat now since there is no air in the system.

Good luck!

When it idles there is no heat but when I start to drive I get lots of heat


Make sure your engine coolant reservoir Is full. If it is low, When the engine is Idling there is not enough water pump force to push coolant up to the heater core. if the reservoir is low check car for coolant leaks.

Coolant reservoir is overfulling after being driven


It probably got overfilled at some point. There's a max line on the reservoir that you shouldn't fill it over. Coolant expands as it heats up so if there's too much in the system, it's normal for it to overflow.

I have a 2007 Impala LT. At the top of my radiator coolant comes out of a hole and drips all over the fan / engine / belts. I think it's an overflow hole, but how do I keep it from overflowing and getting...


If there is a factory looking hole in the top of your radiator, then there should also be a hose close by, that attatches to the "hole"... this hose carries the rad fluid to a plastic reservoir that stores the antifreeze until your radiator needs it, at which time is sucked back into the radiator through the "hole". If you try the hole and prevent the fluid from over flowing, you will cause moew problrms that will cause over heating and a faulty radiator. This "hole" is just under the radiator cap, and should be a stem that sticks out a little to accept the rubber hose to carry the fluid to the reservoir. Easy fix and a relatively simple job to perform.

Radiator hose calasp when engine is coldbut will open up when engine is hot or warm


Check your coolant overflow reservoir, Is coolant at the minimum line. When the engine heats up is coolant added to the reservoir, and when the engine cools down is coolant drawn from it. Try replacing the radiator cap first.

What I am thinking the problem is the radiator cap isnt allowing coolant to return to the system when it cools off.

Engine coolant.


the reservoir may be overfull. Fill to cold line on reservoir bottle.
Or, the radiator cap is not holding th epressure.
Or, worse case, the head gasket is blown and letting compression pressure from the engine into the radiator.

Finally gave up and took to local shop where they performed a pressure test on the engine coolant system. They found a small hole in the plastic reservoir which had to be replaced. Issue now resolved – thanks!
