1) remove radiator cap
2) Fill radiator with coolant.
3) replace radiator cap
4) remove reservior cap
5) fill to "fill cold" line
6) replace reservior cap
If your system not very low or empty you can omit 1-3.

You have to fill the overflow tank as the radiator does not have a fill cap. Run the engine as you fill the overflow tank but just up to the marks on the tank.


First open up the radiator, then there's a drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. Fill with water and drain until clear. Fill it up and good to go.


where do you fill radiator on 2001 ford taurus


Take radiator cap off, fill radiator with coolant, put cap back on!


The radiator overfill tank is the only spot to fill the radiator. There is no fill cap on the radiator itself.


Well, lets see, would it be on the radiator? what a smart aleck! actually, to fill up the radiator with coolant, you have to fill up the resevoir. it is a round, plastic compartment, just above the washer fluid compartment on the top left side of the engine. There is a "maximum" line that you fill it up to.


ON THE BOTTOM OF THE RADIATOR THERE IS A SPIGOT TO DRAIN THE RADIATOR TURN THIS TILL IT OPENS UP AND YOURE RADIATOR FLUID WILL DRAIN RIGHT OUT THE BOTTOM THEN TO FILL MIX ANTIFREEZE AND WATER 50/50 UNLESS ALREADY PREMIXED THEN FILL START CAR UP AND CONTINUE FILLING TILL RADIATOR IS FULL MAKE SHURE U CLOSE THE SPIGGOT IN THE BOTTOM OF THE READIATOR FIRST BEFORE FILLING


The radiator drain plug should be located on the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side. Open that, let the old coolant flow into a drain pan, replace the drain plug once the coolant is out and the radiator is flushed, then fill it up through the radiator cap.


You fill an automotive radiator with a mix of 50% anti freeze and 50% clean water.


fill up the radiator and then fill up the over flow located on the pass. side of the truck half way


i don't really know but get the 50/50 radiator fluid and fill it up


The Yamaha 850 XS is an air cooled bike. There is no radiator to fill.


you don't fill the radiator directly, there is no radiator fill cap. you fill the overflow reservoir and it keeps the radiator full. overflow reservoir is spherical plastic near firewall. power steering reservoir is up front near battery.


When the engine is cold it should be up to the cold fill mark



drain and pull the old radiator out, slide the new one in and fill it up


fill the radiator full, DO NOT CAP THE RADIATOR ! Start the truck, allow it to warm up, allowing the thermostat to open up. While it is warming up, keep topping off the radiator. Once it is hot, and to running temperature, cap the radiator.


Fill the radiator through the coolant resivour, which is on the passenger side engine compartment.


Fill it up with coolant. If it gets low again I'm guessing you have a hole in your radiator. Replace it.


Coolant goes in the radiator or you can also fill the radiator resevoir.


You use the coolent reservoir bottle to fill the radiator. It should fill the rad before it fills the bottle.


There is no actual "radiator cap" due to the fact you have DexCool and an overflow with a pressure vent cap on it already. That is where you fill it up anyway....


After you install your water pump, fill with radiator fluid. Then start your engine with the radiator cap off. run your engine until it warms up. You will see bubbles forming in your radiator. When the level rises and stops bubbling out, install the cap back on. Dont fill your radiator if your car is on a downhill, you will prevent air from purging out.


Many VW Beetles from '98 to '05 don't have a traditional old-school radiator cap. The radiator fluid usually is poured into the radiator fluid recovery bottle. There should be a fill line on the bottle.
