Is it on the coolant bottle or the radiator?

on your post . you said radiator but on the thread topic, you pick coolant bottle.

anyway, if its the radiator, there are two big hose connected, one at the top and one at the bottom . then tehre is another small hose that is usually at the top where you put the radiator cap and this is the one going to the coolant bottle.

if your talking about the coolant bottle, there is one hose connected to the top where you put the radiator cap and the other one on the cover as an overflow hose.

it could be just open or another hose connected to it just to direct the water downwards. but it is not connected to anything.

i hope i answer your inquiry.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Whats causes coolant to stay in reservoir bottle and not return to coolant lines?


I would be looking at cracks in the hose to the reservoir to the radiator . Look for loose fittings. Check that if the hose is in the top of the reservoir in the filler cap that the pick up line is to the bottom of the bottle and not cracked . What you have is air getting into the line when the vacuum from a cooling engine starts to work and that prevents water being sucked back

I have a dodge grand caravan 1999. why would coolant leak from the bottom left corner of the radiato? it looks like the drain plug but wont do anything but leak all of a sudden as soon as i add coolant....


You need to look around, shine a flash light around the sides, top, bottom, and front and back of radiator, and around the radiator cap, look for any white or rusty brown stains. This should help you in your diagnosis. It is possible to leak from the drain but it would not just start out of the blue. If you are leaking from the drain there is another issue such as high pressure in the coolant system which could come from a failing thermostat or water pump, or a serious clogging problem.

What is the black hose on top of engine. Under the header covers?


Upper Radiator Hose and Thermostat
  • A large part of a radiator's function is made possible by the upper and lower radiator hoses. The upper radiator hose controls the flow of engine coolant from the radiator into the car engine. In a cold engine, engine coolant is stored inside the radiator. The engine coolant is held inside the radiator until the engine becomes hot enough to warrant engine coolant circulation. When an engine reaches operating temperature, the thermostat valve, which is located at the far end of the upper radiator hose, opens up and allows engine coolant to flow from the radiator into the engine.

    The radiator has two nipples directly under the radiator cap does a bypass hose connect to them both?


    I had a 1995 Voyager, as I recall, one is for the coolant overflow bottle, and the other was plugged and did not connect to anything.
