Using a 50/50 water/antifreeze solution fill the reservoir to the full mark. Start the engine and watch the level and keep it at the full mark. Replace the cap and take it on a short drive getting the engine to normal operating temperature. Recheck the fluid level and you should be fine.
One question, why is the fluid level low?
Is there a leak? Have you just made repairs?
Good Luck

How do I fix a car that only blows cold air


I doubt it's a heater core.
first look in the radiator and make sure your coolant is full.
not just in the overflow bottle. a bad radiator cap may not allow coolant to refill the radiator . so the radiator can be low and you still have a full overflow bottle

so refill everything and drive it a few miles and see if your heat comes back.

What would cause antifreeze to come out of the overflow of the reservoir?


Remove radiator cap when car is completely cold. Refill radiator look to see circulation when cap starts turn heater high. When thermostat opens water will be drawn from overflow into radiator. If this does not occur faulty thermostat is probable cause if no circulation change water pump. Refill water to correct levels and car should run correctly

How do you burp a cooling system on a 4.3 vortec?


if all you did was to replace the top radiator hose and only lost the coolant from the top tank, all you should have to do is to refill the radiator up to the cap level and start the engine . Watch the water in the radiator and when the engine starts to warm up the thermostat will slowly open and the water in the radiator will go down . refill the radiator while the engine is running and when the system is full of water you will know by the temperature of the water in the radiator . It will be hot to the touch. Replace the cap.

Remove the radiator cap.
Remove the radiator drain bung from the bottom of the radiator.

Drain fluid into a container.

If no fluid present, then refill radiator and perform a system pressure check.

Once all fluid has been drained, and any faults repaired, then refil with a 50-50 water to anti freeze mixture.

How to change the antifreeze


I usually just drain the radiator then refill it, there is usually a white plastic drain plug that looks like a bolt head on the lower part of the radiator, open that drain it out and refill. if the coolant is very nasty you might drain and refill then run car far a bit then repeat.

Loss water thru reservoir, so i have to refill the radiator and some times get hotter.


You shouldn't have to refill the actual radiator unless you either have a leak in it or the vacuum from it to reservoir is not good (loose hose, bad radiator cap). Adding directly to the radiator increases the chance of debris falling into the radiator and can easily clog it. Get a new radiator cap, check all around for coolant leaks and make sure hose from under cap to reservoir is tight and unclogged.

Over heating


You need to solve this one fast.

Limited information provided, year, make engine size ect.

Check recovery tank refill tube if it is soft it may not be fully moving the antifreeze back to the radiator when it cools off due to drawing air in to radiator.

Radiator cap?
thermostat?
Drain and refill coolant?

Hope this helps.

How to replace the radiator fluid


- Make sure the engine is cold and not running.
- Drain the radiator fluid by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator or for a better/faster drainage and cleaning, carefully remove the bottom radiator hose by first loosening the hose clamp.
- Open the radiator cap and water rinse/flush the radiator core via a garden water hose until you no longer see any dirty water coming out of the bottom hose (or drain plug).
- Flush the radiator over flow (plastic) container by overfilling it with your garden water hose.
- remove garden water hose, carefully refit the bottom radiator hose, tighten the bottom radaitior hose clamp, refit/tighten the radiator drain plug.
- refill the radiator with approved radiator fluid for your climate and also refill the radiator overfow tank to the indicated level..
- Refit radiator cap
- Start your engine until it warms up and check for any water or steam leaks. Refit and or replace any faulty hoses or radiator (regulator) cap!
It is not difficult and have fun!

How do I refill water into the radiator of a 1998 Pontiac Grand AM SE? I do not know where the refill cap is?


it's on the Coolant Reservoir & usually it has a Red Radiator Emblem on the Coolant Reservoir Cap. It will not be on the Radiator, but on a little tank near the front Strut Tower

Refilling Anti-Freeze


no ther isn't a special way to refill the radiator. the way they are describing it is a way that you wont get any air caught in the lines. otherwise you can just put anti-freeze in the radiator or the overflow tank.
