Your overflow cap is your radiator cap. What you may want to do is check the thermostat housing for a bleeder. Just in case the thermostat housing is where your upper radiator hose mets your engine. On top of it may be a bleeder valve. Let the car come up to normal temp and open the valve slightly until antifreeze comes out then tighten it up.

How do I refill coolant, after being drained, in a 2003 Kia Sedona. Radiator cap not removable. Doesn't seem to be taking any out of the reservoir.


Try this remov upper radiator hose from engine block and fill that way without running the engine. Then when radiator is full meaning can no longer add coolant through hose reconnect hose start engine and add coolant to reservoir

After I replace the tensioner elbow and refill coolant, do I need to get air out of the lines?


Yes you do have to burp the system. With radiator cap off (as opposed to the expansion tank reservoir which should also be off) the engine cold and the system almost full, squeeze the top and bottom radiator hoses sharply. Top up fully and replace the two caps. Bring the engine and water coolant to full temperature until the cooling fan kicks in. Wearing gloves, squeeze those hoses again with the engine running. You should feel the water surging. Turn off the engine and leave to cool. Remove the radiator cap and fill the system to the top. Replace the radiator cap. Remove the cap to the reservoir bottle and top that up to the MAX line. Job done and all the air pockets removed.

How do I let the old anti freezer out of a 1995 Chevy Lumina?


Very simple locate the radiator on the car and at the bottom/underneath of the car there will be a drain plug either on the far left or far right of the car's radiator. Just unscrew it and catch the old antifreeze and dispose of it appropriately. Once drained, simply refill the radiator and let it burp a few times then put the cap back on and continue to fill the overflow reservoir to full cold level line. Then start the car and let it run for about 10-15mins continually watching/filling the reservoir until the car is warm and it doesn't seem to be removing any more antifreeze from the reservoir. FINALLY let the car cool completely about an hour or so. And check the coolant one last time, the overflow reservoir that is, make sure it is filled to the full cold level line. NOTE: BE SURE NOT TO OVERFILL OR IT MAY LEAK OUT WHILE CAR IS RUNNING. Hope this helps

Engine Coolant container empty...Fill with Prestone??


sure,. sounds like a good plan to me.,. you may want to also inspect to be sure it's not broken or otherwise cracked. and fill the the respective level line (when engine is cold or hot). You may be able to simply use a 50-50 prestone blend or full strenght if the existing coolant is low on antifreeze depending upon your needs climate-wise...

Anything special i need to know when changing my anti-freeze. this is my first time, trying to save money. someone said something about getting the air out? what does that mean?


drain the coolant, connect or close all hoses and drain plugs,start motor and fill radiator with a 50/50 mix of water and anti-freeze, leave engine running,when motor gets hot the thermostat will open allowing the coolant to flow through the motor, in change the anti-freeze will get lower in the radiator thus you continue to fill untill full and the radiator will not except more coolant, ( this is how you get the air out) replace radiator cap and fill reservoir to cold level and your done. Recheck your coolant reservoir after you have driven the vehicle a bit and fill if necessary, do not fill to top, only fill to cool mark. the reservoir is not under pressure so you can fill at any time motor hot or cold

Where does antifreeze go


Antifreeze goes into the radiator. There should be both a radiator cap and also an overflow reservior. Top off the radiator and fill the reservoir to the "max fill" line. NOTE: DO NOT remove the radiator cap when the engine is warm. You'll get burned

Steam coming from engine


hi,
how far away is the repairman? if its less than 2 miles then go ahead. fill up the coolant reservoir AND the radiator locate the radiator cap and fill it too. I dont recommend doing it if you cant fill up the radiator. go early in the morning before it gets hot. if it starts to boil shut it off at the lights. take extra water with you and a rag or gloves and of course the phone. good luck

Where is the drain valve on 2002 dodge caravan radiator?


its a pitcock facing the cab bottom of the radiator, plastic flat. once you find the pitcock just put a bucket underneath and turn it.then refill. if you want to flush(run fluid thru to clean it out) the radiator id suggest taking it in. you dont have to flush it every time you change the coolant out.
