Engine Cooling problem
2003 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Last few days the water in the coolant tank has been overflowing when the car comes to a stop and shuts off. I haven't seen the temp gauge go up at all above normal
But it is a concern since the low coolant light will come on when I start it again.
Thank you

Hi
Maybe faulty cap on recovery tank. If fans working and temp good then cap is weak and can't hold pressure so coolant goes out overflow.
Let me know
