I know this sounds automatic, but if your Radiator Cap is old, change it. If that doesn't work, go to any Auto parts store, get A/C PRO RIFRIGERANT.this will come with a pressure gauge and long hose( I tried cheaper Brands, but the hoses are short, huge pain in the Ass) if you have an A/C leak this will fix it and your Heat N A/C will be full. Pay close attention to directions for Gauge.You can check it before and after you use theT Refrigerant. Always check hoses, if they are real squashy change or lube them. Ted mark usually means you are really in need of 50/50. Always make sure your Have that full. Look under car for leak. I f it's green and your Overflow tank looks like shit,alot more than that pretty blue, empty it(need a hazard dump)if all that fails , you might need a Radiator. Always check oil, radiator fluid, brake fluid,transmission fluid and steering wheel fluid. Just make it a habit. Good Luck. Hope it:s w One of these easy fixies
