I have a 2009 Holden barina and the radiator reservoir tank keeps emptying but the radiator is still full.....

well that is its A#1 job to do just that every cool down cycle even on a brand new car.
not told you how long it takes the fluid to drop 1 day ,1 year? or?
but if the engine eat the coolant AF. then the RAD leak down test finds that. (a tool)
most cars we se the Reservoir to 1/2 full.
and goes higher hot engine and back to 1.2full cold
if engine fails (or any leaks of any kind any where)
the level drops, telling any tech or owner there is a very serious problem.
the tool
https://search.brave.com/images?q=radiator+leak+down+tester&source=web

what a tech does if lots spare time
is open hood get engine fully hot 1/2hr driving . (15psi)
and look for leaks. here is short list (ASE basics all)
new cap is best for $5 and holds 15psi and no longer leaks (cap)
  1. AF to ground leaks, seen. (AntiFreeze 50%)
  2. hoses all leaking AF.
  3. leaks to passengers toes ,heater core leaks.
  4. leaks from intake manifolds for sure V6 or V8 engines
  5. core leaks block or heads. (aka freeze plugs)
  6. the tail pipe has steam all the time running (cloud)
  7. the head gasket viewed at sides, leaks.AF
  8. RAD leaks (all of it) even squirts to places not leaking oops.
  9. water pump leaks.
  10. engine oil pan shows oil , is milk chocolate. oops super bad.
  11. A/T TRANS SAME , HAS AF MIXED IN TO ATF FLUID. RAD COOLER BAD .
  12. THOSE ARE SIGNS. OR USE THE PRESSURE TEST TOOL.
best see the leak,as old signs of leaks can lie you, yes leaks but was a squirted to leak ,not THE leak. source.
watch leaks live hood up, and win.
best is not drive this car too far. (circle the block test to get 180f coolant temp?) and cause full pressure to find leaks for free.

How to bleed the radiator of Galloper?

well even the worst WE CAN BLEED IT OUT BUT IS TEDIOUS.

bubble always float up (rule1)
so we open up the highest hose in the coolant loop.
and put a funnel there.
my old jeep was one of the hardest on earth to do.
The silly jeep book manual says jack front of car up 4 feet, wow.
dead cold engine never hot. (generic first)
1: rad cap off
2: leave it off and add coolant dead cold only and add 50%AF
until fully full,
3: key on start engine (2 persons best) and 2nd adds 50%AF as it drops and 2nd person says ,STOP and I key off, ( engine run less than 5min or if rad neck cap off shows fluid starts to overload. we Stop;. ( I chock front wheels doing this) go easy run short times engine , not long, avoid natural engine heat , even 30second runs at first. OK done, it is now expanding, AF>
4: cap back on off, and still cold (ish).
5: now the remainder, (air pockets)
6: is add a funnel to end of one TOP hose. and hang the hose off the top hood latch loop (small rope ;twin)

then fill it up to full that hose. with 50%AF. and start engine
maybe 10 times or less until it will not take any more AF !
run engine say 1min max each try. ok its fully (cross fingers)
7: Ok done here.
8: now fill side bottle 1/2 full. AF
9: LAST , EVERY MORNING CHECK LEVEL AT THE RAD CAP OFF
AND ADD AF EACH TIME. EACH DAY UNTIL NO MORE DROP


---------------------------------OR SKIP ALL THAT----------Grin----------
AND USE THE VACUUM WAY.
WE HAVE SHOP AIR AND WE HAVE THE VACUUM, PRESSURE EDUCTOR DEVICE FOR RAD FILL.
IT SUCKS THE NEW AF IN TOTALLY ALL AT ONCE.
EVERY DROP.

2007 tundra, i am loosing radiator fluid daily. It is coming out of the secondary container mounted to the fan shroud... from the over-flow tube at the top. I believe the thermostat is seized and it m

all happend over night, or what? parked a year.? or?

a daily driver? or a victim of bad service procedures, just came back from a tuneup??



no scan tool? , to see DTCs thrown, my guess,,, overheated. DTC.

fan belt not loose or fell off and gone?

lost fluid (sort time):

1: overheating

2: bad head gasket (or worse cracked head or block)

3: A/T tranny, the cooler is pushing AF in to the ATF

cooler bad, and coolant is pushing to the trans pan oil

4: AF fluid on passenger toes, heater core leaks.

there are many test for hits.

did you check for 50%AF protection using the $2 tool? every fall

if not and not living in KEYWEST, you can crack any engine block or head or both, so dont forget that. most places in USA can freeze

the tests:

engine or A?T oil on dip sticks look like chocolate, milk shake? oops.

overheating, the gauge show it.

the rad leak down test, tool fails.

the read exhuast guesses in rad neck tool

easy:

new thermostat, not put in backwards.

make sure both big hoses are hot on rad, if not the pump impeller fell off.



question

dead cold engine, check the rad lever. in the next first

and fill it with 50%AF. if not.

that is full, the side tank can fail (tube inside drops off)

then does it puke out? in 15min.

Oil in the radiator

oil in the radiator is from a failed transmission oil cooler that is in the radiator tank. You will also have water in the transmission oil as when you shut off the engine the coolant pressure may enter the oil lines through the crack in the cooler.

Radiator is leaking, on the drivers side of car. 2002 Chevy Avalanche, 4 wheel drive trcuk. One owner, 106000 miles on it.

Removal & Installation To Remove:
WARNING
To avoid being burned, do not remove the radiator cap or surge tank cap while the engine is on or is still hot. The cooling system will release scalding fluid and steam under pressure if radiator cap or surge tank cap is removed while the engine and radiator are still hot.
CAUTION
If the vehicle's coolant is low, drained out, or has repeatedly needed coolant or water added to the system, then the system should be completely flushed.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.

    • Inlet hose from the radiator
    • Radiator outlet hose from the radiator
    • Lower fan shroud
    • Surge tank hose
    • Vent inlet hose from the radiator
    • Surge tank hose
    • Engine oil cooler lines from the radiator
    • Transmission oil cooler lines from the radiator Remove the radiator chevy_sub25_02-04_rad_rem.gif

    • Radiator bolts
    • Radiator from the vehicle
To Install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Radiator to the vehicle
    • Radiator bolts and tighten the bolts, Torque to: 18 ft-lbs (25 Nm)
    • Engine oil cooler lines to the radiator
    • Transmission oil cooler lines to the radiator
    • Radiator vent inlet hose to the radiator
    • Lower fan shroud

1996 cadillac deville overheat..radiator?

Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.
