Having problems with your Chevrolet Impala ?
I have a 2007 Impala LT. At the top of my radiator coolant comes out of a hole and drips all over the fan / engine / belts. I think it's an overflow hole, but how do I keep it from overflowing and getting all over the engine, not to mention the coolant all over the ground.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
If there is a factory looking hole in the top of your radiator, then there should also be a hose close by, that attatches to the "hole"... this hose carries the rad fluid to a plastic reservoir that stores the antifreeze until your radiator needs it, at which time is sucked back into the radiator through the "hole". If you try the hole and prevent the fluid from over flowing, you will cause moew problrms that will cause over heating and a faulty radiator. This "hole" is just under the radiator cap, and should be a stem that sticks out a little to accept the rubber hose to carry the fluid to the reservoir. Easy fix and a relatively simple job to perform.
