You can't. I have seen probably 50+ of them, and every one is dry rotted on the front left. You will have to purchase an aftermarket overflow.

Transmission fluid, if you have a bad radiator.
On the bottom of the plastic coolant overflow (fill) container on the passenger side.
The engine coolant reservoir or the overflow bottle.
Answering "Where is engine coolant drain plug for a 1.8 Nissan sentra engine?"
The overflow resavour is where you add coolant
Yes. There should always be some coolant in the overflow tank. Its level should rise when the engine warms up, and it should go back down when the engine cools.
coolant overflow tank. probably on top left side of engine towards the front.
Look on the side of the coolant overflow bottle. There should be a low mark for the coolant for a cool engine, and one for a hot engine.
It collects the expanding coolant that is heated by the engine and recycles it back into the coolant system once it loses enough heat. The radiator overflow tank works in conjunction with the radiator cap to protect the engine and prevent coolant loss due to overflow. Source: Quora.com
The container for coolant is to the right in the engine bay, above the battery, and has a yellow lid that states "coolant". On the side of the container you can see a marking. Fill up to marking when engine is cold.Do not even attempt to open container when engine is hot, steam will shoot out and burn you.
"Inside the overflow tank. you get to buy a whole new tank." The switch inside the overflow tank is the coolant level switch. The engine coolant temperature sensor is located on the driver side of the engine near the rear of the engine compartment. by theramonast
It will not damage your engine, but it will overflow when your engine heats up. Eventually enough will flow out that it will be down to a level it will not overflow any more.
If you have the closed system, then the cap is on the overflow container. You have to add from there. If the system was emptied, you can add enough directly thru the top hose, and the rest by the overflow. If you have no overflow, then add by the rad. cap. Just un-screw it when the engine is cold.
check/replace the engine coolant level sensor located in the engine coolant overflow reservior (located at the rear of the engine compartment pass. side)
when the engine is running and coolant will become hot to its operating temperature,the cooling system is under pressure,coolant will overflow and goes to coolant reservoir.when the engine goes cold coolant will go back to the rediator.
On the coolant overflow bottle that in on the passenger side of the engine.
The coolant drain plug on a Nissan Micra engine block is on the upper part of the block. It is under the intake manifold.
The coolant for a BMW x5 is placed into the coolant overflow tank on the left side of the engine compartment. It should be filled to the full mark when the engine is at operating temperature.
In a 2003 Ford Windstar the engine coolant reservoir is in the engine compartment ( on the passenger side , it's the reservoir in the middle )
First I would let the car sit overnight. The next BEFORE starting the engine, open the hood and inspect the level of the coolant in the OVERFLOW JAR. If level is too high, adjust to proper level ( sometimes the container is accidently OVERFILLED ) . If it continues, extreme temps caused by one of many things is pushing the coolant out of the overflow tube
The engine coolant overflow reservoir is to the left side of the engine compartment. Checking levels, adding coolant, and coolant specifications are detailed and illustrated in the Owners Manual - See "Related Questions" below for more
Coolant only moves from the overflow tank/container to the radiator when the engine is cooling. It flows the other way (into the tank) as the engine heats up and coolant expands. If coolant isn't moving into the radiator when the engine is cooling down there could be a couple of reasons. 1. The engine really never got warm enough to begin pushing coolant to the tank and the radiator is already full. 2. The radiator cap is faulty and should be changed. 3. If the coolant hasn't been changed for many years it's possible (though unlikely the hose linking the tank and radiator is plugged. Thoughts: Be sure you're adding a 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water to the overflow tank, not just water. Note the coolant level in the tank with the engine cold then go for a drive. Check the level again. It should be a little higher. Let the engine cool and the level should be back to the original point. If that's the case you're good to go. If coolant is pushed into the overflow but the level doesn't drop again blame the radiator cap and get a new one. Cheers
If starting from empty pull the top radiator hose off the engine and fill the radiator until coolant starts to flow from the engine hose bib. replace and tighten hose. Fill the overflow tank with coolant. Locate the vent on the coolant hose bib (brass fitting), start the engine and allow coolant flow to purge the air from the system. When coolant flows steadily close the vent. Re-top up the overflow tank.
The 2001 Nissan Frontier coolant temperature sensor is located on the front of the engine. The sensor will be a few inches above the thermostat housing.
