There should be a drain **** on the lower part of your radiator. Sometimes it is under the lower rad hoes. If not - remove the lower rad hose . Be sure the engine temp is down - do not burn yourself. Also be sure and collect the coolant for disposal. Anti freeze can harm not only the environment but animals can ingest it and be harmed or killed. It is a good idea to remove he rad cap to allow air into the top of the rad and prevent a vacum from slowing the draining of the rad. your can also buy a flush kit from an auto supply store to help clean out your rad/engine if needed. Be sure and use the recommened coolant and ratios as per ypur owners manual when you put new coolant in.

Overheating, loss of coolant, reservoir not working

Sounds like to me your mechanic is on the right track by having the rad cap changed. If the coolant becomes low again in the near future and there is no visible fluid leak on outside of engine or on floor/ground then your problem is internal and possibly a head gasket.

Many things can cause this. It could be a slipping fan belt. This would cause the water pump to not pump enough water. Check the condition of the belt & replace if necessary. Also the water pump may be failing. The engine coolant may be low &/or leaking inside or outside the engine. Take the rad cap off when the engine is cool & check the level & start the engine & see if you cansee flowing liquid through the rad . No flow, bad water pump. Or the thermostat needs to be replaced, it may be stuck open or closed in your case. The thermostat is at the end of the upper rad hose & is removed by unbolting the thermostat housing after draining the fluid from the rad so it is low enough not to lose any. You may have a head gasket leak, ckeck to see if you notice any white residue on your oil dip stick & give the tail pipe the finger test &se if you can smell burnt antifreeze smell. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Water come out from Water line when Engine Shutdown.

Does it show signs of over heating at all? When cool, take off rad cap & check level in rad & top it up. If down a lot, start engine, turn on heat & let run until you hear rad fan come on & check temperature gauge to see if normal operating temperature. Let it come on a couple of times, and top up rad an inch or so from top, then put rad cap back on. Top up bottle to proper level & try it. If it spits back into return bottle, try replacing rad cap.
