Leaking coolant after radiator replacement


If you are talking about the reservoir that hose is the overflow hose.
Its possible the shop did not release all of the air pockets from the system and some coolant came out with the air bubbles.
The tank should be about half full hot and cold.

Water pump; My 1990 Buick Century is leaking what looks like water or antifreeze, it's probably a mix of both because we have been putting water in the radiator. But everytime I park my car for a...


if you have the cooling system pressure tested this will show where the leak is coming from as there are frost pulgs and intake/headgaskets and other things that could be leaking.but pressure testing is the way to find what is leaking for sure.the rad may be full as it will draw water from the overflow bottle until its empty.if you didn`t have this problem until after the plugs were changed then it could be a hose that is leaking that was leaned on or moved to much.again pressure testing the system will show were its leaking.the whining noise could be antifreeze that has gotten on something causing the noise.

Where do I put antifreeze in the car

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.

I have a huge green puddle under the engine of my van....what are my possilities for repairs? rad hose? water pump? any ideas?


Green puddle indicates antifreee. Could be rad hose , heater hose, radiator, frost plug or water pump. Try to find out exactly where it is leaking by putting a piece of cardboard under the motor. This will give you a good idea where it is coming from.

I want to change my antifreeze in my 2003 merc grand marque. Where is the drain plug on the radiator? Do I pour the new antifreeze into the overflow tank on top when I refill it?


look down at rad from top to get familiar with where i am talking about. now opposite side of the lower rad hose is where you want to go, two styles of rads, one has a wing nut type white plug, and other as 6 sided white plug, unthread with pliers or by hand loosen till desired flow is coming out. fill into reservior or overflow tank to half way and run engine til i reaches operating temperature and you has good heat out of heater, this makes sure all air is out of system, and this is complete ttop up to full and install cap

Antifreeze overflow from tank


I would check for visible cracks and leaking at the overflow tank when the engine is cold, then when the engine is running and at operating temperature and not running and at operating temperature as well as during cool down. Also check the coolant overflow hose for leaks or obstructions inside the hose or if the hose is kinked. Check to make sure that the overflow tank cap is damage free and securely fastened.

Trying to replace thermostat on 2004 dodge stratus. the upper rad hose comes up from the rad to the engine, the rubber rad hose meets up with a metal hose. behind the metal hose looks like the thermostat...


I wanted to change my thermostat too because I thought it was faulty. Come to find out my system was just vapor locked. TO fix it I just poured antifreeze directly into the radiator (not the overflow) and ran it with the cap off for a minute.
