No only place is the radiator, strat motor and let let run, add coolant as it fills the hases and stop when coolant reaches the radiator cap.

I replaced my radiator on my 2004 with a 2.2 and it seems like the thermostat is not opening. It can not get the air out. It seem to just to over heat and push the coolant out. Randy


REPLACE THERMOSTAT IF TOP COOLANT COOLANT HOSE GOING TO RADIATOR IS HOT TO TOUCH THERMOSTAT OPEN. TO BLEED COOLANT SYSTEM FIRST YOU NEED TO ADD COOLANT TO THE COOLANT OVER FLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING AND STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WAIT 3 MINUTES IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WITH RADIATOR OVER CAP OFF CRANK ENGINE FOR MINUTE WATCH COOLANT LEVEL AT OVERFLOW JUG.IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG.WHEN COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING IN OVERFLOW JUG.SCREW BACK ON THE RADIATOR CAP TO OVERFLOW JUG.WHILE ENGINE IDLING WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN TEMPERATURE START CLIMBING TURN OFF ENGINE WAIT A WHILE KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.WHEN COOLANT COOL DOWN SOME. PLACE A LARGE RAG OVER THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED, THEN REMOVE CAP ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG TO THE FULL COLD MARK.THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS SCREW BACK ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.THEN START ENGINE WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WATCH COOLANT TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN COOLANT TEMPERATURE START RISING TURN OFF ENGINE AGAIN WAIT UNTIL ENGINE COOL DOWN ENOUGH TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED TAKE PLACE LARGE RAG OVER RADIATOR CAP WHICH IS THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG CAP OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED ADD COOLANT UNTIL AT FULL COLD MARK. WHEN YOUR COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING.AND TOP RADIATOR HOSE VERY HOT THERMOSTAT OPEN AND AIR IS OUT THE COOLANT SYSTEM. MAKE SURE YOUR COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG HAS COOLANT IN IT,WHEN ENGINE COOL DOWN CHECK COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG KEEP COOLANT LEVEL AT FULL COLD MARK.BECAUSE IF OVERFLOW JUG IS EMPTY THATS A SIGN RADIATOR COOLANT LEVEL LOW.WHEN OVERFLOW JUG EMPTY IT WILL ALLOW AIR GET IN THE COOLANT SYSTEM AND CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT.WHEN REPLACING THERMOSTAT ALSO REPLACE THE RADIATOR CAP ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG.

The radiator was emptied out and i want to add antifreeze and water? there are 2 areas that say antifreeze goes here?


  • One is the radiator and the other is an overflow tank. Sometimes anti freeze will back pressure a bit and need somewhere to go and other times the antifreeze gets low in the radiator. That is the purpose of the radiator.
  • Put the antifreeze in the radiator fist and then add to the reservoir. Pay attention to the cold/hot level fill on the overfill tank.
  • You need to find out where all that antifreeze went to if the radiator was empth. Pull the dipstick and look for a chocolate milk look on the oil. This would be a head gasket or a cracked head.
  • Otherwise keep an eye out for a leak and repair it soon.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I put washer fluid in the wrong place. not the one with the orange liquid, but the one beside it. just about 1/4 cup or so


If you placed the washer fluid on the radiator expansion tank instead of the washer fluid tank, and it was only a small amount of a 1/4 cup as stated,don't worry about.It will not harm anything.
If you still want to remove the contents from the tank, you can use a turkey baster to pull the liquid out, then be sure to add antifreeze coolant to fill it back up to the proper level.

How to flush and change the antifreeze on a 2001 mercury grand marquis


loosen pressure cap slowly at coolant tank to relieve pressure,when pressure is relieved remove cap,place a suitable container under drain valve at bottom of radiator open drain valve.when coolant has stopped draining,close valve.then remove thermostat,[this is a good time to replace t.stat since it must be removed to refill cooling system],disconnect heater core coolant supply hose at rear of intake manifold.add coolant thru t.stat opening until coolant comes out of coolant supply hose fitting,reinstall hose and tighten[not to tight] reinstall thermostat o ring and thermostat.add coolant to tank until the coolant level is between the COOLANT FILL LEVEL marks.select the maximum heater temperature and blower speed settings run engine until it reaches operating temp.add coolant until the coolant level is between the COOLANT FILL LEVEL marks.turn off engine allow it to cool, recheck coolant level,add as needed .ford requires this procedure to avoid engine damage due to trapped air.

Coolant


You should have a coolant overflow bottle. This catches coolant when it gets out past the radiator cap. Follow the small hose from the cap area, it should lead to the bottle. This should have marks on it as to full or add. Make sure your coolant is good to about 35 degrees below F. That will help also.
Hope this helps out!

Heater not working


The Navigator has rear air, so coolant lines run to a heater core in the rear. It will help if you elevate the front of the truck on a set of ramps or incline. Turn the heat for both front and rear. Run the truck and add coolant as needed until all the bubbles come out of the coolant tank. You can tell when you get coolant to the rear when hot air blows from the vents. By raising the front of the truck you allow the the air in the lines to bleed to the front.

How to change anti-freeze(coolant) on 2003 buick century


Hello, perform the following steps in this order:
NOTE: car should be cool, in park and on non sloped surface.
NEVER leave used coolant in an area where children or pets can gain access, Anti freeze has ethylene glycol which can be lethal to humans and pets. Used coolant should be immediately taken in a sealed container to a local state certified recycler for proper disposal.
1.Raise front end of car, and place one jack stand under frame of car on the inside of each front wheel.
2.Place a 2 gallon (low profile) bucket under the radiator drain plug. The drain plug will be located at the bottom of the radiator.
3.Unscrew the drain plug and let coolant drain into bucket. (It may be necessary to adjust bucket so no coolant leaks onto the ground.
4.After all coolant has drained from the radiator, tighten radiator drain plug finger tight, then 1/8-1/4 of a turn with a wrench.
5.Unscrew radiator cap and begin filling radiator using 50/50
premixed antifreeze solution.
6.Continue adding premixed solution until fluid is just below the top lip of radiator where cap fastens to.
7.Re attach radiator cap and lock into place.
8.Check radiator overflow reservoir and ensure coolant is between add and full, add coolant as required.
PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SOLUTION IF YOU FOUND THIS INFORMATION HELPFUL.
