Customer Question
2000 buick parkave when...

2000 buick parkave when engine is shut off after ashort while anti freeze will come out of the radiator cap and leave small*****on ground .

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your car been overheating? Have you noticed any leaks?

Runs normal temp and recovery tank is always half full

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Buick?

Parkave

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I thought there may be an issue with the recovery tank because the anti freeze doesn't go in to it but pushes out of the radiator cap.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

A week ago we replaced the the top intake manifold ,water pump ,thermostat,elbows that were plastic and new radiator hoses.
