instead of putting fluids in over flow put it directly in the radiator. take cap off radiator start car and wait like 5 minutes then add to radiator until full.
OR on the top of the water pump there will be a brass fitting with a small brass bolt in it, loosen the bolt to allow air to be pushed out of the cooling system as you add coolant, otherwise when the air in the system gets hot it expands and pushes the coolant back out and the car overheats. when coolant starts coming out tighten the bolt again and run it up to operating temp.
Open the hood on your Sunfire. Remove the radiator cap from the radiator overflow bottle. Turn the engine on in the Sunfire, and let the engine run for no less than 15 minutes. Set the dials on the heater control panel to full fan speed, full heat, and front defrost positions. This will speed up the processes of heating the engine to full temperature. Removing the radiator cap and performing these procedures will allow the pressure in the engine to build up. As the pressure gradually increases, the weight of the coolant will force air bubbles out through the radiator overflow bottle hole. This process is called bleeding the cooling system. Turn the engine off when you notice that there are no more bubbles coming from the radiator overflow. Top off the radiator overflow bottle with fresh coolant. Use 50/50 diluted, universal coolant to fill the overflow. Replace the radiator cap when the reservoir is at the "Full" mark. http://www.ehow.com/how_7734216_bleed-system-Pontiac-sunfire-22l.HTML
A lot of heat is gonna build up when there is no air going through the radiator fins. This is one way that the cars vents some of this pressure. It is possible that it had too much coolant in it and the overflow tank filled up and pushed the rest out the overfrlow tube. It is normal for coolant to go back and forth between the overflow tank and the radiator. Just keep an eye on it and if it is not over heating then I wouldn't worry about it. Good luck.
There is a petcock on the bottom corner of the passenger side on the radiator. If you turn the petcock and open the valve the coolant will drain out of the drain hole on the bottom passenger side of the radiator. Make sure you have a big bucket to catch the coolant in or you will be making a huge mess. The proper way to fill the radiator is to take the upper radiator hose off and pour the coolant in until the radiator is full. Then replace the radiator hose and fill the overflow to the correct level. Start the car and let it run till it is hot and the fans kick on (should be about 220F ~ 230F). Turn the car off and let it cool, then top off the overflow bottle. You should be fine to drive the car at this point, but after heating up the car again you may need to top it off again so keep some coolant handy. The cobalt uses dexcool.
yes, or should i say its supposed to. If your cars cooling system uses a expansion tank you have a problem on your hands, coolant should be flowing through the expansion tank on a regular basis(when the thermostat opens or closes). if you have a overflow tank, coolant flows in or out as needed by the systems heating and cooling cycles. If the radiator is low top it off then fill the resivor to the minimum cold level(shown on side of tank). But if your coolant levels are low you should ask yourself where is it going? if you cant find a external leak (around waterpump,bottem of radiator or hoses), then you might have an internal leak.
Do you mean that your heater core is leaking coolant ? That would mean that the heater core is clogged. The heater core is like a mini-rad, if it is clogged it leaks.AnswerNo, there is not an overflow tube/outlet on the heater core.See "Related Questions" below for more about Taurus / Sable heating/cooling systems.
