After I drive my car I turn off the engine and the
radiator resovoir is steaming and it is making a
hissing boiling noise I just drained my radiator and
refilled it with antifreeze and water this is the
second time this has done the this. Any solutions
on how to fix this problem
the cooling system is pressurized. any steam or hissing indicates a leak.
It might have had the wrong ratio or the wrong coolant in it at one time and is seriously clogged...take it to a shop or jiffy lube type place and have it pressure flushed to remove the sludge and oxidation...if that don't work, time for a new radiator. :(
Btw...you might want to be sure you fan is working too!! ;)
how old is the coolant thermostat ? Is the temp. gauge steady after worm up ?
