Levels are probably not fine. Check the radiator not the overfow tank for proper level. The radiator should be full to the top.

You probably need to replace the heater core. Be sure to also check your coolant levels, as well as the condition of the coolant - if it's burned out, have the cooling system flushed and the coolant replaced.

Why would the heater on your 1988 mercury topaz not give you warm air unless it has been running for 30 minutes?

First and foremost, check your coolant levels. If you have insufficient coolant, you'll get heat but only after a long time. It could be a heater core problem, or a plugged line but low coolant is a common cause. First and foremost, check your coolant levels. If you have insufficient coolant, you may still get heat but only after a long time. It could be a heater core problem, or a plugged line but low coolant is a common cause. There should be a coolant reservoir under the hood, it will have some markings on it indicating hot and cold coolant levels. If that is empty that is a good indicator that you may have low coolant.

How do you find out what part of your cooling system is bad 99 A4 V6 QT The warning light came on coolant levels are good belt and fan are good?

check or change: hoses for blockage, thermostat operation or blocked radiator..

Does the coolant reservoir have to have fluid in it?

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.

What is the warning indicator for radiator or coolant problems?

What are you asking; what the function of the warning system(s) are or what could be causing it/them to turn on? In general: Most cooling systems only have warning systems for excessive temperatures, i.e temeprature gauge and/or warning lights. Some may have a warning system for low coolant levels in the expansion (header) tank also. In rare cases, there are systems for cooling system pressure and glycol dilution levels. If any one of these systems are active, it indicates either a fault in the cooling system or prehaps in the sender unit and/or warning system itself, i.e. high temp warnings upon a cold start. Signs of cooling systems problems are a regular loss of coolant, high engine operating temps, ineffective cooling fans, pregnant hoses, a hot smelling motor when running, peeling paint on the rad itself etc If you are a little more specific prehaps I can help more.

Why does the 1999 dodge neon shut off when it gets hot?

Watch your temp gauge, if its getting really hot, that is to prevent damage. Check your coolant levels, if those are fine you probably have a problem with your waterpump, thermostat, fans or some other part of the cooling system.
