It sounds to me like the radiator is boiling.Make sure the radiator is full by removing the cap WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD. and filling it completely. This should fix it. GoodluckJoe
If you are checking the coolant level at the overflow bottle, it may look normal (between the low & high marks). But the coolant level sensor is mounted on the passenger side of the radiator, down several inches from the top. In other words, you need to check the coolant level AT the radiator cap, but only when the engine is COLD. If it is OK at that point and the overflow bottle, then the coolant level sensor most likely needs to be replaced.
If it is marked coolant the funny bottle gets the coolant.How it works:As the engine warms the coolant the pressure in the system increases as a normal result of warming. The pressure is released by the radiator cap by bleeding excess coolant into the bottle.As the engine cools the reverse happens but the valve works at much lower pressure (vacuum) going back into the system.It also works this way to keep it topped up with no air in the actual cooling system.You can see the valve that allows coolant back into the radiator in the centre of the cap id you take it off.
The radiator cap is on the right hand side of the motorcycle, just behind the plastic shield trim in front of the gas tank. There is also a coolant overfow bottle on the right side of the motorcycle, behind the removable plastic panel there close to the rear. Coolant can be added there as well, by removing the rubber cap of the filler or bottle neck. Usually coolant is added at both the radiator cap and the coolant bottle. DonÂ´t worry if you fill too much coolant since it will automatically drain itself out via an overflow hose as the engine gets to normal working temperature.
There is a sensor that is in the overflow bottle that may be bad causing the "low coolant light" to illuminate. The coolant level switch is located on the bottom side of the coolant tank. The switch contains a reed switch and a magnetic float. When the coolant level is normal, the float rests away from the reed switch, causing the switch to be open. When the coolant level decreases in the coolant recovery tank below a specified level, the float rests on the reed switch and the switch closes, illuminating the LOW COOLANT light. The coolant level switch is a part of the coolant tank. If the switch needs to be replaced, the coolant tank must be replaced.
The Intrique, along with every other GM car made, are known to get clogged cooling systems. The DEX Cool coolant they use is one of the worst ideas out there. USually ranning a bottle of coolant flush, driving it, then flushing it out, then another bottle of flush, then driving it, then flushing it out, then another bottle of coolant flush, then refilling with standard green coolant, and installing a inline coolant filter, to get any more dexcool coolant particles. ---------------- In my professional opinion, Dexcool accelerates oxidation of parts, but does not directly cause clogging. A flush might not be a bad idea anyway. I'd recommend that universal yellow long-life instead of the green. -- 1. Remember when flushing to make sure the front of the condenser and/or radiator is not plugged with seeds, dirt, etc. You can clean this with a normal water hose. DO NOT use a pressure washer as this will bend the fins. 2. Verify that as the car is getting warm (on its way to hot) that the fans are working. If the fans are not working, check the coolant temp sensor before the fans themselves. Check fuses and relays. 3. Replace the coolant pressure cap. If it's not holding pressure, the system will overheat. Overheating is rarely a "plugged" issue on modern cars.
The "Water bottle" is designed to store the water that is boiling. When the water in the radiator gets hot, it boils, which then gets ejected into the bottle to cool, once the engine has cooled, the pressure causes it to be sucked back into the radiator thus restarting the process. Its perfectly normal for all cars, don't be alarmed.
this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor. this is normal for this engine, in fact anything short will trip a check engine light. the cause will be a low coolant condition, a thermostat stuck in the open position or a bad coolant sensor.
