The level should only be about a quater of the way up on the over flow tank (if you have one on it) i dont have one on mine i just always check in the top of the radiator and make sure it is full all the way to the top. it also could be because there is not enough coolant mixture to water. try flushing it out and put a mixture of 75% coolant and 25% water. too much water means more pressure and thats why it could be leaking out. other then that you will get coolant coming out alot if you dont have a overflow tank.

2007 pontiac g6 leaking fluid on drivers side

You may have an air pocket in your coolant system and it pushing fluid out, check your coolant fluid level when cold and fill to proper level then run the car for 20 min turning the heat on inside the car to allow fluid to go through the heater core, always watch temperature if it gets too hot during procedure stop and let it cool then top off fluids again and repeat till fluid level is full and air is out.

Hi, Rick and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.

How do I add coolant to my radiator. It seems there is a specific way to do it on a 2000 Impala.

Add it to the clear plastic overflow tank. --- Underhood Check
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    Toilet system will not completely stop dripping, resulting in constant drip from overflow. How do I stop it?

    Is the drip comming from the small fill tube going into the overflow? If so you may need to raise it a little. The nost common leak is from the flapper or seal. On rare occasioms the flush valve itself has a defect that will cause it to leak. Take a close look at the problem and Im sure you will find it. I hope this helps.

    2004 impala coolant level

    The coolant container (called the overflow reservoir) will be marked as to what constitutes MIN and MAX levels that should be in it. If it's low, add coolant.

    As for what temperature it should run at, the gauge on the dash is just a general indication, but usually it runs close to the middle of the gauge's range.
