Most commonly this is due to overheating or a blown head gasket. Overheating causes the coolant to expand, and rush into the resevoir, then overflow it. When cool, the coolant that remains will be sucked back into the engine. A blown head gasket can cause the coolant to enter the firing chambers of the engine then be blown out the tailpipe, or the compression can leak into the coolant area and push the coolant out, or allow the coolant to get into the oil pan.
The overflow bottle may overflow if: 1. The car is overheating - this means after the coolant in the radiator gets heated up and expands it flows to the reserve bottle but the radiator doesn't cool down to suck back the coolant from the overflow bottle, but just keeps on sending coolant to the bottle. 2. You may have put excess coolant in the bottle - hence heated coolant from the radiator didn't get enough space.

Coolant is added to the overflow bottle instead of the radiator. The overflow bottle will allow fluid to fill over into the radiator.
No, shake bottle of sealant well - pour directly into radiator and run engine for approx 15-20 minutes so it can seal properly in the system.
The pressure cap is on the coolant bottle. The bottle is mounted to the firewall. You add coolant there.
With the engine cold, put it in the radiator just to be sure there is no air gap. Run it for a short time until it gets warm and coolant begins to circulate. Then install the radiator cap and put coolant in the overflow to the coolant level line.
In systems that do not have a radiator cap, the coolant is drained by the radiator drain plug. It is filled by adding coolant to the system through the overflow bottle.

In the radiator and the overflow bottle.
An overflow tank is a bottle that holds coolant that expands and leaves the radiator under driving conditions. The Coolant will go back into the radiator as needed.
Remove the radiator cap when the engine is cool and add the coolant into the radiator or you can add to the coolant overflow bottle. DON'T remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot!!!
You don't have a cap on the radiator. The cap is located directly on the coolant bottle
you add coolant to e150 thru the radiator overflow bottle
Coolant is added in the top of the radiator through the filler under the cap on some models. On the models without a radiator cap, the system is filled by adding coolant to the overflow bottle.
no, it's on the reservoir. Yes, the radiator "system" has a pressure-release cap located on the plastic coolant fill bottle. This bottle is an active part of the cooling system, and is where you add coolant to the system
through the overflow bottle
It is on the coolant bottle, driver side of the engine.
I would check the radiator coolant bottle for cracks and inspect any hoses to bottle.
Have it pressure tested, the intake gaskets have probably failed.
I have a 1998 Sunfire and am getting my coolant sensor replaced today. I am told by the dealer that it is located in the housing of the plastic reserve bottle. Basically I am told you have to replace the entire bottle. Hope that helps? I just unplugged mine it was a lot cheaper
The bottle on the firewall with the radiator cap on it is where you add coolant.
I assume you are refering to the radiator overflow bottle. The required coolant is red 5 year antifreeze(not dexcool).
The coolant is added by filling up the reservoir bottle. This model is not filled through a radiator cap.
If the engine coolant reservoir has a thread on cap , that is your pressure cap / " radiator cap "
