Radiator


Look for signs of coolant leakage on the garage floor, driveway or ground under your vehicle. Check the level of coolant in the overflow reservoir or inside the radiator by removing the radiator cap. The engine must be cool before the radiator cap can be safely removed. Inspect the radiator to find where it is leaking. There may be an obvious hole or other defect that is easy to spot, such as deposits of coolant and an orange or green discoloration.

yes you can leave the thermostat out your engine will take longer to warm up ,be careful with that stop leak stuff, as well as stopping leak can be inclined to block radiator maybe there is something else causing it to overheat ?

98 caddi deville small pin leak at top of radiator, changed cap to 10 pd , stopped leaking but when we use the air cond it over heats and needs more coolant getting frustrated


The radiator cap is rated for a reason. The higher the pressure the cap holds, the higher the boiling temperature is because the high pressure holds air in the coolant. By putting a lower rated cap on your lowered the boiling point of the coolant. Put the correct cap on and fix the leak. Why didn't you just fix the leak in the first place? You can use JB Weld to fix a pin-hole.

Need to know where to put stop leak into my radiator


first off i dont advise using this type product, but i know it isnt always convenient to buy a 2 r 3 hundred dollar radiator, but anyway, with the car cool remove the radiator cap and let the car run about 4 or 5 minutes and pour it directly in the radiator and replace the cap, you will then need to drive the car an additional 15 or 20 minutes for it to take effect, i would replace the radiator asap, asit could cause it to overheat and cost tons of time and money,GOOD LUCK!

I have a 1996 Honda civic, it spits out water at the radiator after running for 10 minutes. What can I do?


If the radiator is leaking, put a bottle of radiator stop leak in it,fill it up the rest of the way with water, tighten cap, and run in idle for 15 to 30 minutes. If the leak is severe or one bottle doesn't work, use two bottles of stop leak and run for 35 minutes.

If it's the radiator cap that's leaking, replace the cap with a new one. Also check to make sure there are no loose cooling hoses.

Safety first: Use extreme caution to never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot, severe burns from escaping hot water could result.

I am trying to put in Bar's liquid copper seal leak for the intake and radiator. The instructions says to put it in the radiator, but I do not see the radiator opening any where, all I see is the plastic...


That is the rad cap. They call this a surge tank. The rad it self does not have a cap. If your intake is leaking I would not put the stop leak in because it will not stop it. the 3.4/3.1 l engine is known for intake leaks. the problem is the gasket is made of plastic and it cracks. If coolant is going inturnal then you have to change the intake gasket or you will damage the lower end. sorry for the bad news. An intake will cost about $700 can
