Hey Shonda==Sometimes the low coolant sensors get coroded and you have to thake them out and clean them. Also make sure you have the radiator full when refilling the system. GoodluckJoe


It means you've got air in your cooling system, and it's easy to get it out.

You need a 12mm deep-well socket on a ratchet and a gallon of Honda-compatible coolant. Turn your heat all the way on, then follow the upper radiator hose to where it goes into the engine. There's a bleeder bolt on top of the part the radiator hose hooks looks a little like a Hershey's Kiss that's made from aluminum. Anyway, loosen that. (Note: do this with the engine cold, 'kay?) Next, remove the radiator cap and start slowly pouring coolant into the radiator. When it comes out the hole in the bleeder bolt, add just a little more then snug down the bleeder bolt. Put the radiator cap back on, and you're done.

You might have a bad thermostat. stopping the coolant flow and causing it to flow back in the overflow bottle.

What causes white smoke to come from a car after driving it for 15 or 20 minutes?

White smoke from the exhaust means two things; excessively rich fuel mixture, or coolant is being burned in the engine. Being that the smoke comes out after 15-20 minutes, the problem is probably an internal coolant leak, allowing coolant to be burned by the engine.

How do I Reset the low coolant indicator on a 2001 Oldsmobile aurora?

It should reset itself when the coolant is back to the appropriate level as long as the sensor is working properly. If you look in the overflow reservoir and can see coolant, the sensor or wiring might be the problem.

heat is the problem. your temp guage is most likely shot and your car is probably vapor locking.

1997 ford ranger heat blows cold air what should i check?

Check your coolant level in the radiator as well as the overflow reservoir. Believe it or not, I had the same problem yesterday. This should fix your problem.

Why are you losing coolant out of your overflow?

There could be several reasons. Under normal operation, the vehicle will experience this as the coolant heats up and expands into the over flow. A bad water pump, low level of coolant, as well as a clogged radiator could also cause this problem.
