I JUST HAD THE COOLENT BLEEDER KIT REPLACED. I WENT 50 MILES AND THE CAR STARTED TO GET HOT BUT DID NOT OVER HEAT. GOT OUT OF THE CAR AND ANTIFREEZE WAS JUST POORING OUT THE BOTTOM OF THE CAR.

Hello -

To better assist you is your model the LX or LXi? Also can you give me your engine size in liter?

Do you know where the antifreeze was running out of?

When the car is warmed up is the heater inside the car, on full hot, does it blow hot air at all?

Hello -

Thanks for the info on the car.

Since you have hot heater air it doesn't appear to be an air block.

My other question was do you know where it was exactly running out of? Knowing this will help in isolating the problem.

Is it still doing it?

Under cooling system bleeding it talks about the outboard chamber of the coolant bottle should be empty. It is possible that it had coolant in it and when it heated up there was no place for it to go.

As above, is it still doing this and do you know where it was coming from?

Is it still leaking?

If so, have you checked the bolts to see if they are tight?

Did this just start after the change of the bottle?
