I have a 1993 VT1100 C and on mine you have to take the gas tank off and there are two plastic plates that cover the goose neck, from the front of the goose neck to just under the tank. These just pull off, they are attached the same way the side covers are with pins and rubber grommets. Anyway pull the left cover off, (Left if your looking at the bike from the front), and the radiator cap is under there. Your bike looks like they haven't changed the design other than cosmetic. I hope this helps!...Allen W.

Put water in radiator


Usually, all you need to do is fill the radiator, leave the radiator cap off, start car and let it idle until engine reaches normal operating temperature, and the thermostat opens (upper hose will get hot or warm). Then shut off the car, top up radiator and overflow bottle, replace cap, and you are good to go.
I own a Sentra and was recommended when filling the radiator to keep the car running while filling to help expel air. Also many cars have a bleed valve on top of or near the thermostat housing which should be open while filling with coolant, and as soon as coolant starts coming out the bleeder valve, it should be closed, and then continue filling radiator. If you don't have such a bleed valve, and you still think air might be trapped in the engine, you could find a coolant temperature sensor or sender unit that is at or near the top of the coolant passages or areas of the engine where coolant is found, crack it open to make sure only coolant and no air comes out.
The Sentra engine is easy to trap air, but by running engine when filling, and waiting until thermostat opened before shutting off and capping the radiator, I had no trouble filling the coolant-no air was trapped.
Good luck.

My low coolant light stays on on my 02 impala but the coolant is full how do I reset it?


The coolant level sensor is located on the passenger side of the radiator, just below the bottom of the battery. If the light comes on, you'll need to fill the plastic coolant tank. But you also need to remove the radiator cap and fill the radiator itself. Only open the radiator when the engine is cold. If the radiator is full, and you are positive it's full, then the sensor needs to be replaced.

Have changed the water pump, thermostat, radiator, radiator cap, all hoses. 2001 chevy venture, still running hot? How long does it take to bleed the cooling system?


If the system fills via an expansion tank, I would recommend removing the top hose from the radiator and filling the system by pouring the coolant in through the hose until it begins to flow out of the upper radiator port. Reconnect the hose and then fill the expansion tank. That should take care of it.

I need to change coolant. How do I bleed air from the system so that I can fill it. Thanks.


Drain the coolant. Then fill resevoir and/or radiator. Then start the car. The water pump will circulate the fluid into all the nooks and crannies. With the engine on but not hot and the resevoir/radiator cap off, fill till you are at the FULL or "F" line. If it's just a radiator with no resevoir, fill to the bottom of the filler neck. You are then done.

Are you filling it through the radiator or the overflow? If it's the radiator fill it at idle and wait for it stop dropping and then put on the radiator cap, Now you can fill the overflow to the correct level, make sure you check the temp gauge on your dashboard it should read in the 1/2 to 3/4 range.

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.
