Your 2000 Chevy cavalier was flushed out and new antifreeze put in and now it is over heating and did not do that before what can you do?
It most likely has an air bubble. Allow engine to cool completely. Find bleeder valve and open to remove air bubble. This may require adding coolant. Close valve when coolant comes out. Fill reservour to correct level and go for a spin.
Why is our 1994 grand am over heating after we had it flushed it wasnt before Could it be water pump thermostat?
It came with "Dex Cool" in it originally. (Red colored fluid). This antifreeze is responsible for softening the seals and causing intake gasket leaks on small block GM vehicles. Flush the dex-cool out as best you can and refill it with antifreeze that is designed to be mixed with either type of coolant. Mixing regular antifreeze with Dexcool unless it states on the container that it is intended to be mixed with it will cause…
What does the picture of a box with a downward arrow and a water line mean on the dash boad of 99 Chevrolet cavalier?
Your husband flushed out the radiator and filled up with new antifreeze and it is now overheating and never did that before what do you do now Help?
Second time on replacing your 1995 Sunfire heater coil Anyone have this problem or know of a recall for this problem?
Heater coil? Or do you mean the heater core? If it's the core, the problem might be due to rust in the cooling system. This is usually because someone just filled or topped off the system with plain water instead of a 50/50 mix of water/antifreeze. I'd have the whole cooling system flushed before replacing another heater core, and make sure the proper mix of water/antifreeze is used to refill the system.
Added antifreeze to surge tank on 2000 Alero now antifreeze leaks from back of engine only sometimes?
You have oil in your antifreeze and antifreeze in your oil should you drain it before using steel seal?
i have a 94 cadillac sls and i think i blew a headgasket thers oil in my antifreeze resovar and thers antifreeze in my oil whats the best thing to do does steel seal realy work should i drain both of thoes before i use it Yes, but any sealant that's to be used in the coolant system is for emergency situations. It will cause more problems in the long run than it will fix…
well i THINK heating the solution will speed up the reaction in the solution before adding the precipitate since the final observation required is the precipitation. you dont add the reagent before heating since it may give a false observation after heating, it might not precipitate normally but since you've otherwise it might.

No the CTS runs the fans. They never go bad. On that vehicle watch the guage, if the radiator seems to overheat before the guage says it should be doing so ya got a cracked head as long as ya haven't been putting WATER in the radiator. it has to have antifreeze to keep the boiling point up. They also have fan motor problems
How much water do you drain from the Radiator before you put antifreeze in a dodge Dakota sport radiator 4.7 liter?
Probably all of it. Unless the volume of water in the system is known, it is impossible to know how much to remove and how much antifreeze is to be added to achieve the proper mixture. The correct mix is 1/2 water, 1/2 antifreeze at a minimum, but ideally, the mixture should be 70% antifreeze with 30% water.
That all depends on what kind of antifreeze was in there before. It comes stock with the green color. but if there is another color in there now either put the same color in or flush the whole system and put the desired type in there. If you mix colors your system will become clogged with antifreeze jello :(
Nothing cheap. White smoke is a sign of steam. Most likely the engine is mixing antifreeze into the combustion chamber from a bad intake gasket, head gasket, or warped head. Its gonna need a teardown to replace the head gaskets. Think of spending over $700 in labor and about $200 in parts. You should've flushed the coolant before it turned acidic and ate away the gaskets.
first if coolant and water mix was not prepared as needed to your state climate .coolant on your rad will continue to freeze ,...if it is frozen run hot water on rad assly also installing a block heater will help in heating you engine before starting on mourning's.knowing the state you are from ask local mechanic's what is the mix rate or percentage in which to mix coolant and water,...
