The sensor that measures the water level is rusted if you take it out and clean it. The problem should be solved.

What causes 02 buick century that not running hot to show the guage hot and the fan running and temp light to show


1 How do you know it is not running hot? Engines run normally at close to 90 deg. C, that is, close to the boiling point of water. The pressure cap on the radiator ensures that the water does not steam off at this temperature.
2 If the engine is not running hot and the gauge shows that it does, the gauge is faulty, probably the sender unit. I am not sure of the Buick, but some cars have two senders, one for the gauge on the dash and the other for the radiator fan. If your car has only one, the information from the sender is probably used by the ecu to switch on the fan, so if the sender is faulty you will get the symptoms you describe.

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.

When i first start the car a message appears that says ENGINE COOLANT LOW. CHECK SOON. When you check the coolant(AFTER IT HAS COOLED) , it shows to be exactly where it is suspose to be. 1999 bUICK...


The low coolant switch may be stuck, and you may even have to replace it. Last time I replaced one it was in the radiator. Also make sure the level is good in the radiator when cool.

There is a light in the dashboard that says "check" with the shape of a little water tap. I don't know what it means.


With the engine cool, Check coolant level, or may be overheating. If coolant is low or severely low, fill it, keep cap off and start engine, allow it to run and continue to add antifreeze until level of coolant stops going down and replace cap. Fill the expansion (overfill) tank to the full cold level. Allow engine to reach operating temperature while observing the engine, radiator, and hoses for leak and look under car for drips. Also check for wet carpet inside at the front, usually on the passenger side (not sure exactly where heater core is in your Kia), so also check the drivers side. This will indicate a defective heater core, if the leak is bad. If the leak is only minor in a heater core you will notice a sweet smell inside and/or windows will steam up when you run the defrost. Also, if coolant is low check radiator cap, If you don't have to push down with slight-medium force to turn and remove it, it may be leaking there.
Hope this helps.

I FILLED THE COOLANT SYSTEM AND BECAUSE THE WATER PUMP OUT LET SITS HIGHER THAN THE RADIATOR I HAVE A ARI LOCK. HOW CAN I VENT THIS ARI OFF?


Hello ,this is what i do for this vehicle .First take off one of the heater hoses going to the top of the water pump.Next make sure the radiator cap is ON .Then take a funnel ,stick it in the waterpump tube .Then poor the antifreeze in slowly until antifreeze comes out of the hose that was taken off .this will put antifreeze into the engine and radiator.:)

Replaced topr radiatior hose on 200 9-5 saab now engine overheats, engine light on. Air does not work as well


a couple of things....change out the thermostat,and check to see if you have water dripping from your water pump.if you do then change out your water pump.and check if both top and bottom hoses are getting hot if they are then that means water is circulating through your engine which is a good thing.

How to replace thermostat on


Do this when cool. Take radiator cap off, start the engine, turn on heat (not defrost) and now top up coolant to about an inch or 2 from top of radiator, as level drops down, and let vehicle run until the radiator fan comes on, then off, about 3 times, and add coolant as needed while it's running. After that, put radiator cap back on tight & make sure return bottle is filled to proper level. Now try that & see how heat is, temperature gauge etc, and keep an eye on return bottle level for a while. Let me know how it is.
