Make sure that you don't have to much antifreeze in coolant system. A 50/50 mix is to much and doesn't keep the system from freezing or from overheating. You need something like a 30/70 mixture, then make sure that your coolant system doesn't have any air bubbles in it. You do this by starting the car with the radiator cap OFF, let it run until it reaches operating temperature. You should see a few bubbles, it might even belch up some coolant. After it has stopped making bubbles and you can see the coolant flowing in the radiator top it off with warm water. Even if you just fill a couple jugs and put them in the sun before you start. If the water is to cold it can damage your coolant system. Hope this helps let me know.

(B30 mini) no water comes out... we have had it for 3 weeks, I have cleaned the needle... and the funnel. Everything goes as normal, the water heats until it is time for the coffee to come out- then the...


So I had this same problem the fix was pretty simple. Air had gotten into the fill line and the pump couldn't pump the air filled line. So to get rid of the air try to brew a cup of coffee (make sure you have a cup under) now cover the over flow at the top of your water reservoir with your finger or thumb. Air bubbles should blow into you water storage tank. Once the bubbles are gone remove your thumb or finger. Now try to brew a cup of coffee again.

Hi, the likely problem is a bubble forming in the system, possibly due to a head gasket failure.

Try stopping on a steep incline--does the heater stay warm? If yes, what you have is an air bubble that hangs at the heater hose until pressure from the water pump blows thru it as the engine speeds up. Park on an incline, open the radiator cap, run the engine until the thermostat is open, turn the heater on, crack open any/all bleed ports to release any trapped air, and fill the radiator to the neck. Wait until the level stops dropping and make sure bubbles don't continue to come up. If they do, you may have a blown head gasket that will keep forming these bubbles until you change the gasket.

I have a 2008 F-250 when the heater is on and the truck is stopped or driving under 15 MPH the heater blows cold air, if you speed up it starts blowing hot again. What could this be?


Could be low coolant, could be a bad head gasket or other point where combustion gasses are entering coolant.

The heater core fills with bubbles, it's commonly the highest point in the cooling system. When the motor is turning slow the water pump isn't moving enough water to force the bubbles to go on through the heater core but when you speed the motor up the pump is able to force the bubbles down to the motor. They'll go to the top radiator tank and then out the pressure cap to the recovery tank. Look for bubbling in the coolant recovery tank.

The coffee maker will not work. It keeps saying


As others have said...just keep reseating the water tank, 20-30 times may be necessary. You will see air bubble come up and until you stop seeing bubbles, keep dropping the tank into place. Eventually it will start to **** water from the tank filling the brewer with about 20oz of water. Wait a couple minutes for the water to heat and it will indicate ready and just select brew cup size. This will work. We just had the same problem today with our first breville coffee brewer and now it works great.

Rattling noise from my clio engine?


Was the car using much coolant before you forgot to replace the coolant bottle cap?

The clinking noise you describe - that may be 'pinking'.. a noise caused by an incorrect air/fuel mix .. and also a symptom of a blown head gasket. Another symptom of a blown head gasket is white smoke (steam...) from the exhaust.

First, check your engine oil on the dipstick. If the oil is a creamy grey colour this indicates a blown head gasket. The creamy grey colour is caused by coolant finding its way into the oil system.

Fill up your coolant bottle with coolant. Leave the cap off, and start the engine and let it tick over for 10 minutes. As the engine warms up air will escape from the coolant level - keep topping up as necessary.

Keep your eye open for extreme bubbling in the coolant bottle - violent bubbling in the coolant bottle is caused by exhaust gases finding their way into the cooling system via a defective head gasket.

If there's no violent bubbling, replace the coolant bottle cap when the engine has ticked over for a few minutes..

... and then begin to look for leaks as the engine ticks over. Look under the car to see if there's any falling fluid. Check around the radiator and the hoses. Check that the coolant bottle itself isn't leaking.

You say your car isn't overheating - that's a positive. One symptom of a blown head gasket is overheating.

However, your coolant is going somewhere and you should try and find out where ... If it isn't a leak from somewhere, it may well be the head gasket.

Prices? To have a cylinder head gasket fixed costs around £500 - £1000 British pounds. A coolant bottle costs around £30 (look on Ebay)

If the head gasket is leaking/defective you can try a modern sealant/repair, which I am told are now quite good. Have a look on Ebay:

Leaks and overheats really fast


hi it sounds like your headgaskets blown you need to take your rad cap off fill with water start the engine see if you see any bubbles in the water or if the water blows straight out its a good indication the headgaskets gone the thing on the right hand side is the expansion tank overflow if this blows water out even when cold the headgaskets gone if you see no bubbles in the water change your thermostat the two fans on the rad have nothing to do with your a/c if that doesn,t work may need pressurising yates210456
