Water not retrieving from over flow bottle

Get your head gasket tested, with eider compressed air or so called a TK test. Subaru head gaskets can start leaking without having straight away big water losses. And get also your radiator cap checked/ tested .

Tank 250cc motorcycle bleeder for radiator

There may not be a bleeder screw because it's a motorcycle. There may be some with one, but I'm a motorcycle technician and haven't seen one yet. If you're trying to drain it, pull the lower-most hose off and drain into a container. If you're trying to get air out of system, take radiator cap off, start bike and let it warm up until coolant starts to flow out of radiator fill.

Where do I find the engine fluid header 1992 Honda VFR750F

The radiator has a filling cap on the right side. Take off the right hand side cowl to have access to it.First fill the system through the radiator, with the bike on the side stand, all the way up, close the cap, run the engine for 10 minutes, then turn it off and let it cool down. Open the radiator's cap again and poor some additional fluid if needed.Then, beneath the radiator, is the expansion tank that you fill up to the max indication with the bike straight (not in side stand) on a leveled surface.

Yes it is normal just no hot air

1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

The thermostat went all the way to the red zone, telling me the car was extremely over heated. The heater was not blowing hot air, there is plenty of coolant and it wasn't hot, the oil wasn't hot, but...

It's possible that you have air in the system. In these cases, a hot air bubble can form near the temperature sensor, and the bubble can also prevent coolant flow to the heater. Recommend you park on an incline, open the radiator cap, if you have one, start the car and let it warm up. Open any blled ports you can find on the cooling system to let any air out. Fill the radiator to the top, if possible--do not fill the reservoir to the top if that is the only place you can add coolant.
Note, if air bubbles continue to come up in the radiator or reservoir after the car is hot and coolant is flowing, you may have a blown head gasket. Let me know if you have any questions.

I just got a 97 fzr 600 how do i check the coolant level

With the engine cool, locate the radiator cap on the right side of the motorcycle under the fake tank (the real tank is under neath a plastic cover). You may have to take off the right lower cowl. Remove the cap and fill the radiator to the top. Now, take off the seat and fill the overflow bottle to the high mark. You can follow the overflow tube from the over flow bottle to the radiator cap and vice versa. Ride the motorcycle and check the over flow tank level again after the bike cools down .

Wher is radiator cap on 2000 cadillac sls was told to add coolant straight into radiator not thru the over flow tank

theres no radiator fill, the cap on the over flow tank is considered the radiator cap, thats where you fill the radiator, hope this helps.
