The Radiator is filled through the plastic cap in the right upper fairing pocket. Remove the right lockable cover on your LX and in the forward part of it there is a black round screw cap. Fill the fluid up to the mark on the side of that tank. There are two overflow plastic tanks in there. Do not put the fluid directly into the cap in the radiator directly as you will not get the correct level. Join the email group at for further contact.

How do i replace the coolant in my 96 dodge caravan after i flush the system

Make sure all the drains are closed, start filling the rad and allow the coolant time to drain down, then fill again. Keep filling the rad unit it no longer drains down, just make sure to stop filling it when the level in the rad is just barely visible when looking down inside it. Now fill the overflow bottle to the lowest level mark. Start the car and turn you heater on to full heat. Let it warm up to proper temp, may/may not need to put more in rad. Keep an eye on the level in the rad it will expand and may overflow, if it looks like it will overflow use yout tester to remove some fluid. Once you see the coolant flowing throug the rad wait a few minutes, then put the rad cap on. Let it run a few more minutes to get the rest of the air out, then drive like normal. Check the fluid level in the overflow bottle (engine cold) over the next few days fill to proper level as needed.

I have a 1995 Triumph Thuderbird Sport with 13,853 original miles. I have had this bike since 1999. My bike has recently been over heating and then shutting down. I noticed my coolant was low so and...

Sounds like either your thermostat isn't working, or the switch on the side of the rad which tells the fan to switch on is faulty. They are cheap and easy to replace using a Haynes manual or similar.

Hello,I replace the Stator and battery,on my 86,cavalcade 1400 LXE...starter ok,but the wires gets over hot with the voltage regulator together...thank you!

The wires from the Stator to the Regulator/rectifier do get very hot. Remember that the stator always puts out maximum power and the reg/rect shunts what ever your bike does not use to ground. A very wasteful thing to do, but that is what Suzuki decided to do with most of their models. There is a yahoo email group for these bikes joined through a link at - try it.

well girl your dead wrong about the rad damage any restriction in the air flow through the rad will drop its cooling ability bit time,,,and any water you tip into the rad should flow right through it very very fast or its partly blocked up, if you keep running your bike when its very close to the red line on the heat gage your goint to reck your motor,,, get your rad fixed first, you could try to lift the beny cooling fins back up but be very gentle bending them or you will rip the rad at bits
if the carbs are running week becouse you have the wrong ex pipes fitted that wont help keep your motior cool so tune the motor up right as well if all this still fails to cool things down wip the thermostat out and run without it till you get a new rad?
dont keep cooking your bike engine???

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Need to check rad fluid. how do I acsess it? The bike has been stored for 2 years and i just replaced spark plugs,gas,oil,but not sure about the rad. thanks in advance for any words of wisdom you could...

we need the make and model of the bike dude. most models though have the fill right behind the triple tree. remove the two covers at the triple tree connection and there should be a fill right there on the right hand side of the bike.

2002 pt cruiser overheating was told i need a new raditor and thermostat for 1 grand sounds fishy

Flush rad & change coolant & thermostat. Check operation of rad fan, & make sure it is coming on when engine reaches normal operating temperature. Be sure to bleed air out good when refilling rad/cooling system. Start engine & turn heater on when refilling & let rad fan come on & off at least 2 or 3 times before putting cap back on rad, and refill rad as needed as you do this. then fill return bottle to proper level & see what happens.
