Could the bottle for the coolant cause over heating if it has a split in it?
Asked in Pontiac Montana
Why a Pontiac Montana overhaets frequentely?
The Pontiac Montana engine will overheat if the coolant gets low and is not refilled properly. If coolant is added, an air block WILL OCCUR preventing proper circulation unless owners manual is followed. There are 2 blleeder valves in coolant system. They must be opened & closed in proper sequence (see manual) or engine will overheat. I know-been there!

Did you ruin the engine by adding low silicate coolant in your 1999 Chevy Camaro?
Asked in Fuel and Engines
What should you do if your engine overheats?
Do not have your car on. First step is to make sure your car has enough engine coolant, if you are low, buy some at the store and put it in its proper place for your car(If you do not know where that is then consult your owner's manual for engine or engine coolant.) If that is not the problem, then it is possible that you have a leak somewhere from the coolant container to your engine. Either check for any possible holes or loose connections or take it into an auto repair shop.

How would you know if your 1998 Toyota Camry needs antifreeze?
Engine hot cooling not hot?
Engine is Hot, Coolant is not HOT here engine is hot means above the engine operating temperature, Coolant is not hot means coolant in the radiator is not hot and the coolant is below or withing the operating temperature. i think there is no water blow out from the radiator cap if you have this problem then the following will not apply to your case. * water is not circulating through the radiator, either half of the pumped water is circulating through the radiator or another half circulates through the engine block because of thermostat. so please check the engine thermostat for proper function.

Does running the ac in extreme hot weather cause engine to overheat?
Asked in Antifreeze and Engine Coolant
Why does your coolant boil when run the engine and AC together?
Check to see if the electric cooling fans are coming on, and at the proper temperature. The air conditioning is adding heat to the engine, and your cooling system cannot remove the extra heat. This happens with some cars at idle, when the heat stays around the engine and the coolant is not circulating as quickly. Extra electric fans are installed to deal with this, but they have to be operating properly and you have to have the proper mix of antifreeze as well.

What affect will a bad thermostat have on an automobile heating system?
Why does 1996 Thunderbird boil coolant?
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.
Replaced thermostat in your golf gti 1991 but still no heat why?
You must make sure that you have purged all air from the coolant system. An air bubble will not allow proper flow of coolant and could also cause the engine to overheat. Add coolant into resevior and leave top off with engine running. Add more coolant as required. If temp gets too high with cap off and coolant starts to back out of resevior, then replace cap and allow to cool. Remove cap after cool and top up coolant again and repeat procedure.

Asked in Chevy Camaro
What is the proper procedure for filling the coolant system on a 1994 Chevy Camaro 3.4L?
This is difficult so pay attention- (1) Remove the radiator cap (2) Start filling the radiator with a proper mixture of water and coolant(Most climates us a 50/50 mixture) (3) Once the coolant reaches the radiator neck stop filling and let the coolant go down, you can speed this up by starting the engine and letting the coolant start to circulate. (4) keep doing this until the coolant level remains at or near the top of the radiator. Happy Motoring!
