It probably got overfilled at some point. There's a max line on the reservoir that you shouldn't fill it over. Coolant expands as it heats up so if there's too much in the system, it's normal for it to overflow.

I have a 97 Tahoe and I can keep my power steering return hose from blowing off despite how many clamps I put on the hose


return hoses are low pressure hoses so check for an obstruction in the reservoir ( blocked filter)or overfull reservoir

Temperture gage starting to fluxuate while driving.


This can be caused by an insufficient coolant (aka antifreeze) level. Look at the coolant level in the reservoir under the hood. There should be two marks on the bottle "warm" or "hot" and "cool" or "cold". If the engine has been running for a while as in the case when the car has been driven few miles, the coolant level should be up to the "warm" or "hot" line on the bottle. If the car has been parked without the engine running for a couple of hours or more, the coolant level should be at the "cool" or "cold" line on the bottle.

Never remove the radiator cap when hot or if the engine has only been been stopped for less than 2 or 3 hours.

If the hot coolant is at a level that is below the warm or hot line, you should add more of the coolant / water mixture only to the reservoir - not to the radiator. If you are only able to check the coolant level when it is hot - you will have to repeat this procedure until the coolant level of the reservoir is maintained. Checking the hot coolant level can only be done when it has been allowed to cool between hot checks. The cooling period is the only time when coolant is drawn from the reservoir back into the radiator.

If the cold coolant is at a level below the cool or cold line of the reservoir you should add more of the coolant / water mixture to the reservoir and to the radiator, too. Fill the radiator to the top of the neck where the tube from the reservoir connects to it.

If you're still having widely fluctuating temperatures while driving at normal operating speeds, there may be a problem with the water pump, thermostat or other portion of the cooling system.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Overheating. Cools when stopped, runs hot when driving. Already replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, reservoir, heater core. The fans kick on like they should. My next guess is the catalytic...


It can be a clogged converter. It can also be a blown head gasket if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. White smoke from the exhaust, overfull oil level, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, loss of coolant with no apparent leak, or air bubbles escaping from the radiator with the cap off engine running.

Coolant Light is on even when its to the full line, not overheating but i am loosing coolant overnight and have to replace it


You say "when it's to the full line". If you are referring to the plastic coolant reservoir, that is not an indication of how much coolant is in the radiator. You must remove the radiator cap to check the coolant level and too add coolant. If you are pouring coolant into the reservoir, and the radiator is low, then the coolant in the reservoir is probably being pulled into the radiator after you have driven the vehicle. That doesn't mean you are losing antifreeze. It just means you need to put antifreeze in the radiator.

After driving my 2001 dodge stratus it draws coolant out of the reserve tank and I smell coolant. I have changed the thermostat and hoses so far. What is up?


Do you see white smoke from the exhaust? If so you may have a blown head gasket especially if this engine has overheated. Check the oil level and if it is overfull and looks like a cup of coffee with creme in it, you have coolant in the oil. Remove the oil cap, and if you see a foamy broth under the cap that is another sign of an internal coolant leak. If you see none of this then you have a leak somewhere. Fill the reservoir and radiator with coolant. Park the car over a clean driveway. Start the engine and then let it sit and run until you see where the leak is coming from.

My 2004 kia is leaking coolant


I had this same problem and found out after alot of searching that the reservoir can only be purchased through a Kia Service department. I bought a new one for under $40 and it took less than 30 min to replace on my own. The parts manager said that it is a common problem and Kia redesigned the new reservoir so that the grids you see on the bottom of the old one are gone, apparently the grid is the source of weakness.

Engine coolant.


the reservoir may be overfull. Fill to cold line on reservoir bottle.
Or, the radiator cap is not holding th epressure.
Or, worse case, the head gasket is blown and letting compression pressure from the engine into the radiator.
