What causes antifreeze to come out the overflow?
when your engine is hot it causes the water to boil and the water and the anti freeze will come out of the overflow pipe.

What makes the liquid in the overflow for the raditor bubble Also it's making antifreeze come out the engine seal not the head gasket what would cause this?
Answer . Replace the radiator cap with the proper OEM cap. What engine seal are you talking about. If the car is overheating, severe engine damage can occur.
What would cause antifreeze to boil in overflow tank in 2003 Chevy Venture happened twice now and neither time has the temperature gone up to the red area and engine overheating light hasn't come on?
Answer . \nReplace the radiator cap with the proper OEM cap. Be sure and use the exact same pressure cap. If this happens again after replacing the cap, then you need to d…o a complete service of the cooling system. Drain, flush, replace thermostat, refill with a 50/50 mix of the proper coolant and distilled water, and bleed air from the system. Also inspect cooling fan and water pump for proper operation.
Answer . radiator cap might be leaking
Answer . \nwhat exactly do you mean? i could probably help, but i need more information to go on. firstname.lastname@example.org. email me and i will try to help you.
Answer . The heater core has no overflow hose. Cooling system is a closed loop system and the only overflow hose is the one going from the radiator cap to the reservoir. A… thermostat that is stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat. Drain and flush the radiator, replace the thermostat, install a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water, bleed air from the system. You may also need to replace the radiator cap. Be sure and replace these parts with OEM parts. . Answer . The heater core has no overflow hose.

Yes you can. When the car reaches a certain temperature it will suck it out. As a matter or fact most newer model cars they tell you to add it there.
Oil does not overflow into the oil. If antifreeze is present in the oil, you either have a cracked head or a blown head gasket. This allows the antifreeze to get into the oil …passages and is extremely serious. Stop driving this vehicle immediately . Otherwise you will ruin this engine. The heads will have to be removed and checked for cracks or warping. New head gaskets will have to be installed. Very expensive repair. If you have to travel over a couple of miles to get it repaired, change the oil and filter before taking it in for repair.
Why is Coolant overflowing from the cooling tank at times and drains down into the left rear well?
start by replacing rad. cap. if that doesnt help you have a blown headgasket.
The system was overfilled and purged the excess coolant.
no you need to replace temperature sinding unit
If you have excessive bubbles coming from your radiator (remove the radiator cap only when the engine is cold) with the engine running, Then you have a blown head gasket. You …may need to increase the idle speed a bit to see the exhaust gasses coming out. Fill the radiator to over full with water. An other cause is: the engine must be able to pull a vacuum on the reservoir hose to return the water to the engine as it cools. I have found that the plastic reservoir cap may have a hole or crack under the cap. Take the cap off with the hoses attached, clean it, then blow on the hose covering the other hose end to see if it leaks. It must not leak. If it does then water can fill the reservoir but not return to the engine.
Heat from the engine causes liquid to expand. It used to overflow onto the ground if it caused enough pressure to open the radiator cap. The overflow tanks were installed to a…utomatically catch and return the coolant to the cooling system.
If it makes a boiling sound when it comes out then it is probably a bad radiator cap.
Because it leaked out, or was absorbed as the new radiator filled its voids. Just top it off, and observe during and after an engine thermal cycle, and top off as necessary un…til proper range is reached. Notice that the reservoir has "hot" and "cold" levels.
