SOURCE: found radiator leaking and topped up coolant

Sufficient fluid in the reservoir does not necessarliy mean that the radiator is full. If you have fixed the radiator leak, let the engine cool down and the radiator will draw coolant in from the reservoir until it (the radiator) is full. Make sure the reservoir does not go dry while this is happening - and do not remove the radiator cap until after everything cools off completely.
There's no check valve in the cooling system, although the radiator cap does serve such a purpose when there's a reservoir attached.

My heater blows only warm air. and I feel it could also blow more air. What could be the cause ?


start by checking the cabin filter and replacing if necessary. That's the source of outside air.

How can I take apart the botton of starter of Honda cb 1300 2002?


do you mean the push button ? if its on the right side of bars then you remove the throttle assy and then remove cables , mark each cable to where it came from , there are 2 or 4 screws on the under side of housing , once off then you should have access to button ! it could be a sealed button and if it dont work testing it on a multi metre then you have to replace it !

2000 acura tl coolant fan after fluid change


New thermostat, installed, saw, new coolant made a little mess filling reservoir, (normal) checked fan fuse for some reason, and condenser fan fuse (xxx ?:), and temp guage, is slightly lower on gauge (than normal?) (disconnected xxxx? quit? a bit? to get to thermosta?.t no dash warning lights have a feeling I popped a relay.

Answer:

ok, you did a coolant service with STAT,

and it failed.

tell us what works right and wrong, symptoms only.

over heating? parked, (fan never comes on)? as it hits 225F?

under heating? ( fan stuck on , up North can cause huge cold engine)

dash gauge stuck low. (thermostat wrong heat range 180f is best. see FSM for spec. on this temp. spec..

Dash guage varies.? oddly (air in system)?

Dash gauge too high.? (Stat put in upside-down or bleed hole (jiggle) not UP side. higher side of mount , trapping air.)

Does something wrong happen only driving?

leaks?

does cap on rad hold 12-14psi pressure, hot.?

if car has fan belts, are they tight? (for sure water pump does)

How do you check the coolent on the vtx 1300?


It is rather easy to check coolant on the vtx all models 1-level the bike [block under kick stand wheel also blocked] 2-look under bike at the overflow bottle midwaynear the oil filter.3-there are marks on the bottle clearly showing high ,low, and middle.what you want is the middle line or level when the engine is cold.4-afiller tube is provided on the left side under the plastic side panel.do not overfill or you will have to do some siphoning to bring level back down. If you wish to check the coolant mix 50/50 then an antifreeze guage will have to be used

WHERE DOES THE ANTI FREEZE GO


Hi, there should be a white plastic reservoir with a black lid that just pops off,just follow the smaller black hose from the radiator to it. ( i don't remember if its on the left side or the right side on that year ) there is only 2 reservoirs under the hood and one is for wiper fluid and the other is for the antifreeze. also the top of the lids will say in writing on top which is for which. ps. Also you want to add antifreeze with engine running because if the system is low,once the engine reaches normal operating temperature it will **** the coolant from reservoir to engine/radiator and you might need to add more coolant to reservoir. yz-maniac.

Coolant reservoir low


IT is normal to lose a little coolant over time, but when you replace it, use a mixture of the appropriate coolant with a mixture of DISTILLED water. If you continue to lose coolant, you may have a leak in the system that can be tested for by placing it under pressure. The radiator cap can be a problem.

I just bought a 96 mark, message center reads low engine coolant but heat gage remains normal. coolant not low. doesn't seem to hurt anything, just annoying. low coolant sensor location?


Silly question, but have you looked inside the radiator? I asked becuse often coolant is checked by looking inside the coolant overflow reservoir. Sometimes the ovrflow reservoir will look like the coolant is normal, when it's low in the radiator.

Here's a link which will give you more info.
