That is were the coolant goes when it expands. Sounds like coolant isn't circulating or it is being forced out of the system.

Well if you over fill it at the gas stand of course it will over flow, if you fill it to tyhe brim and replace your cap it will not over flow - unless your filler cap has a faulty seal, if it has a faulty seal the gas is likely to spill out while driving.

What is a time rate of change?

An example, of a rate of change over time is the emptying of a water tank by opening a valve at the bottom of the tank. The rate of flow through the valve is dependent n the pressure difference through the orifice(valve), controlled by the difference in the level of the water in the tank. As the water level drops the rate of flow drops because the pressure difference drops. The amount of time it will take to drain the tank completely can be calculated as a rate of change over time. Note: this rate of flow can be elevated by elevating the tank, thus a valve attached to the bottom of the tank directly will have a faster rate of change but slower rate of flow than a valve attached some distance below the tank.

How do you stop triumph stag v8 engine overheating?

Are you asking about the Triumph V-8 or a conversion V-8? Had two Stags converted to Rover/Buick V-8s. Easiest thing to keep from overheating was not to use a cross flow radiator. If you use a cross flow, you will end up with a air pocket in the engine. You can get a header tank off a TR-7 or TR-8 and take a tap off the top of the intake manifold. Need to put the tank higher than the engine.

How long will a d oxygen tank last at 5 liters per minute?

Depends on how much pressure is left in the tank.Duration of Flow = Oxygen Tank Conversion Factor * Remaining Tank Pressure (psi) / Continuous Flow Rate (L/min).Conversion factor for D Tank = 0.16Assuming you have a full tank 350 liters at 4000 psi flowing 5L/minDuration = (.16*4000)/5 = 12.8 minutes

You have a 93 geo prizm lsi 13L you just changed the dash cluster and now your gas gauge reads a 14 too full how can you reset it so its right do you have to reset the computer if so how do you do tha?

If the gas gauge reads a little over full when the tank is actually full on a 93 Geo Prizm, that is normal. Sometimes, when filling the tank, it will register over the full mark. The computer can be reset by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes if the tank is not actually full.
