I just replaced the radiator in my Honda Accord. When I filled up the radiator and the rad. Overflow with antifreeze I made the mistake of topping it off. Now when I stop driving the overflow is pushing out antifreeze. How do I get the antifreeze out of ther overflow so it can be at its correct level?

When you fill the radiator, you are not suppose to fill the overflow resivior. That is why it is called an "overflow". To empty it, look at the bottom of the tank and see if there's a plug you can pull (not when the car motor is hot). If not, dissconnect the hose running to the tank. Then remove the few screws that holit in place, take it out and dump it. There are laws for the dispossal of antifreeze (if that maters), so look them up and follow them, but whatever you do, wait until the car is nice and cool before attempting to do either on of these
