Okay now, just a few more Questions please? But first I just want to remind you that this is a 2001 Chrysler sebring Lx Convertible with a 2.7 liter V6 Motor. It does not have a cap for the Radiator, it only has a coolant pressure bottle/resivoir which is where I fill the radiator through. Now as I mentioned in our earlier conversation that when I started the car and let it run for approx. 5 minutes or so, it would start smoking up on top around the upper intake manifold and the coolant bleeder valve area and the water inside the coolant pressure bottle starts boiling and bubbling like crazy, so I changed the Thermostat only to find out when I boiled the old one that it seemed to work just fine as it opened and closed like it should. Now you mentioned a Blown head gasket, well I then changed the oil and it was dark brown but not at all milky like it would be if Head gasket was blown. Correct? So then I went to try the next step by Bleeding the coolant system. However, being told and reading different directions on how to do it I still unable to be given proper procedure on my vehicle that does not have a radiator cap directly on it, or a fancy bleeder funnel. So following directions buy an Auto Zone Employee what I did was first open the Bleeder valve, then I undid the top of the radiator hose and filled it with water, then put hose back on and started filling the coolant pressure bottle all the way up until coolant started to push out of bleeder valve in a stream, but that never happened. Now I have a totally full radiator and my coolant pressure bottle is full to the top on both sides in bottle and nothing coming out of bleeder valve. So I went back to Auto zone and was told to go home and start the car and let it run for a few minutes and then open bleeder valve and let it run until coolant comes out, then close it. So I went home and first I undid the hose on the coolant bottle, was going to try to drain some of that water from bottle, but then noticed the water went down itself on the one side, so I started the car and let it run at specified rpm for a few minutes, noticing that that side of bottle that went down, was up again, then opened valve, soon the driver side fan kicked on but not the other fan and still running for a while I noticed that there was coolant that came out of bleeder valve but no stream. A couple minutes later the top started to smoke again, but now this time the power steering cap I guess shot off and there was power steering fluid (?) A dark orange liquid all around it and the coolant bottle so I shut off motor and done for night. No Boiling in coolant bottle this time but Temp gauge went up not even half way, coolant bottle was cool but radiator hose was real hot and bottle still full. Now thinking back to draining the system and coolant from the one half of the coolant bottle, the coolant that was in that half of bottle was also a dark orange looking color as well. I am thinking that maybe the bottle itself is clogged up, not letting the water run through the system correctly. Could that be right or no? If no, what do you think the problem is? And how do I fix it? And PLEASE, how do I bleed this thing? Without special tools and funnels, that is. One more question. While I was checking fuses a couple weeks ago, I removed the fuse labeled EGR/O2sensor and when I put it back in and started the car it made a loud weird noise and smoke rushed out, smelled like something burned up. And when I talk about the smoke on top above upper intake manifold when it starts to run hot, well it is in the same spot that it smoked that day with the fuse thing. Any ideas about what I fried under my intake manifold.? Please Help Me!? I will Donate $ on my next reply after these questions are answered. As payday is tomorrow. Lol. Thanks again so much. I will be waiting for your reply.
#1. What is the cooling system problem and how do I fix it?
#2. What is the correct procedure to bleeding a car with no radiator cap, just one on coolant pressure bottle? Without that special funnel
#3. What do you think that I may have fried underneath the Intake manifold after removing and re inserting the EGR/O2 Sensor Fuse in engine compartment?
#4. What is the Orange fluid and did it come out of power steering and if so why? It feels kind of oily.
#5. Do you think my coolant bottle or Radiator could be clogged up? Or water pump? ( I just purchased one a few months ago, but as with everything else I bought, it too probably all went into someone else vehicle and not mine.
Also a #6. Caps. Since I got my car back from that waste of mechanic, I noticed that none of my caps fit securely on the brake fluid container, the power steering fluid container, or the oil cap and wiper fluid. #6. Would that cause any problems with the performance of any of those item I listed, besides the brakes?
I will wait for your reply before I do anything else to car. Thanks
