Remove cap from radiator or over flow tank. If radiator fill with anti freeze until you can see anti freeze about 2 - 3 inches from top if over flow tank add anti freeze to fill mark leave cap off and start vehicle once vehicle reaches normal operating temperature the t stat will open and the anti freeze level will drop add more anti freeze to radiator until full and replace cap. With over flow tank add anti freeze to fill mark then put cap back on.

no radiator cap, so i took the cap off the tank. i drove it a few miles, and some anti freeze came out just when i got back. it is cooling now, but the fan is still running all the time. what next?
