Tell me more please. I cannot find the red and blue caps on my car. I bought a can of coolant that comes with an attachment piece that is suppose to hook up directly to the car. I've seen pictures of other kinds of cars but can find any of my Saturn.
I have not worked on a Saturn before but on every car that I have worked on the caps are just black. If you want to find them, you can locate your condenser (Looks like a small radiator located in front of your car radiator) and then you can trace the lines back until you find the connections. However, you do not want to mix up your high and low pressure lines. I highly reccomend having a garage or knowledgable person hook it up as you could release your freon completely if done incorrectly. Sorry this wasn't more help.

this pic is what you see when you open the hood, then the BLUE CAP to the passenger side is where you would top-off the coolant. That is NOT the radiator but a reservoir tank. it needs to be filled (to the appropriate HOT?COLD line) with the proper coolant mixture as stated in your manual. That is usually a 50/50 mix of the specific coolant and water.
Hello Sir. Usually it would say in the owners Hand book you got with car?
explaining all the controls functions of the car or 4x4? alternatively
if you look under bonnet there only be four filling reservoirs: engine coolant
water, washer bottle, brake Fluid,power steering. usually the engine
coolant will be a largish cap about 2-3 ins either blue or black its NOT
this one. The brake fluid Will be at the back of engine bay and so NOT
his one. Washer bottle again will be a cap blue in color its NOT this
one. the one you want should be near front of car /engine and should
have a steering wheel symbol on it the caps usually smaller then the
engine coolant and black attached to a small reservoir and when you
remove it will have a dipstick attached to it or small spike attached to
cap this is used to measure power steering fluid, hope this helps... Thanks Mike
Make sure there is no air in the system, take the radiator cap off and let the engine idle for half an hour, as the air comes out the coolant will go low, ad more coolant and then close the cap on also make sure the resevour bottle is at its mark.
Depending on your system (either sealled radiator without a cap and a pressurized surge tank or standard radiator with cap and an overflow tank) either the radiator/surge tank cap is not holding pressure and the coolant is unable to pressurized and boils at a lower temp, boiling off until you coolant level is so low the engine overheats. More than likely it is either the thermostat or water pump. Commonly it is the thermostat
please explain what is happening a bit more also what model ,at the back of the engine is a bleed off valve for the coolant ?? is rad cap sealing on the plastic headed radiaror ,is the fan comming on ??
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.
The red and blue caps that the bottle is reffering to are the valves on the A/C manifold. It is a seperate tool, not something that is on your car. The manifold hooks to your A/C system and then the bottle that you bought hooks to the manifold.
