Antifreeze and Engine Coolant
Chevy S-10
Dodge Dakota

What is the best product to stop a coolant leak 2000 Dodge Dakota with 30000 miles is losing a quart of coolant every thousand miles through the exhust-no visible coolant and no coolant in oil?

We need to know what the coolant won't run through.

User Avatar

Yes, if the coolant level is low, or the pump is not capable of moving coolant through the heater core.

In systems that do not have a radiator cap, the coolant is drained by the radiator drain plug. It is filled by adding coolant to the system through the overflow bottle.

It cycles coolant through the engine. Heat from the engine is transferred to the coolant through a heat exchange. The heated coolant then cycles through the system to the radiator, where heat from the coolant undergoes another heat exchange, transferring heat from the coolant to the air which passes through the radiator. Heat will also transfer from the motor to the air forced over the motor by the engine fan.

Either slowly through top of radiator or through coolant recovery tank

No. Coolant only runs through your radiator into the engine and back again. Your condencer is part of your A/C system.

Slowly to prevent an "air lock" through the top of radiator or through coolant recovery tank

The coolant pump draws coolant from the radiator and circulates the coolant through coolant jackets in the engine cylinder block and the cylinder heads. The coolant is then directed back to the radiator. The system directs some coolant through hoses to the heater core in order to provide for defrost and passenger compartment heat. A surge tank connects to the cooling system. Pressurized coolant continuously flows through the surge tank and the process repeats

When the engine heats up to a certain temperature, the thermostat opens up and lets the coolant flow through the engine. Heat from the engine is absorbed by the coolant, which then cycles back to the radiator. Heat from the coolant is exchanged to the air which flows through the radiator fins, thus causing the coolant to rapidly cool down.

No. The reservoir holds the coolant that flows back into when the engine coolant expands and will flow from the reservoir to the engine when the water cools. but there is no actual through current of liquid. Yes indeed it does on a lot of European vehicles. This occurs mainly in automatic coolant bleed vehicles.

Air flow through radiator restricted with debris. Coolant flow through inside of radiator restricted with debris. Low on coolant. Faulty thermostat. Coolant fans inop.

The coolant should circulate through the entire water system.

1) Your engine is overheating and the coolant is boiling. Or 2) Exhaust is leaking into the coolant, probably through a bad head gasket or cracked head.

User Avatar

The heater is dependent on the coolant flowing through the heater core. If the coolant is low then there will not be any heat.

A storage tank for the engine coolant. Air flows through the radiator helping to keep the coolant cool.

Perhaps low coolant level Perhaops thermostat is not opening allowing coolant flow through the engine

User Avatar

The coolant temperature sensor on a 2001 Jeep Cherokee is located in the intake manifold. It monitors the flow and temperature of coolant through the engine.

User Avatar

It is a carburetor where the engine coolant is routed through the choke system of the carburetor. When the coolant is cold the choke will close. As the engine coolant heats up it opens the choke.

User Avatar

two easy answers are: 1. the coolant isn't at its' proper mixture (ie. too much water, or not enough coolant) 2. your radiator has gotten too plugged up to allow the coolant to pass slowly enough through to cool the engine, the coolant is being force through 10 ports fast instead of 50 ports slowly.

User Avatar

There is no coolant cap. You add through the expansion chamber (opaque bubble to the left of motor.)

No, the thermostat controls the temperature of the engine coolant. As long as the coolant temperature is below the thermostat set-point, the thermostat remains closed. Once the temperature arrives at the set-point, the thermostat starts to open, sending heated coolant through the radiator. The radiator then cools the heated engine coolant and the water pump forces the coolant back through the engine. The heater control valve allows more or less of the engine coolant through the heater core. Since the coolant should be very near the set-point temperature of the thermostat, you should be getting hot water through the heater core to warm the inside of the vehicle. The engine coolant is there to keep the engine from melting down or from breaking metal parts and burnng off the oil. It just happens that the heated coolant is useful to warm the inside of the vehicle.

Add coolant, with a cold engine for safety, through the "radiator" cap in the upper hose.Add coolant, with a cold engine for safety, through the "radiator" cap in the upper hose.
