No lid on engine coolant resevoir and no engine coolant in it. Is any damage being done?How can i repair it?
if it is just the overflow the car with no coolant then you will blow the head gasket and then you need a lot of expensive work.I’m not saying to ignore the problem, you should definitely fix the reservoir as soon as possible, but you should be ok as long as the car has not overheated. You should also check your coolant just to make sure reservoir then that is not LONG as you have coolant. The coolant in the core too big a deal AS still in the radiator core is what matters, If you were to run you aren’t running low.

Which way does coolant flow through an engine?
From the bottom of the block bottom the air will never be forced out and you would have less water in contact with the metal surfaces to cool. Radiators come in various designs, some flow top to bottom, some flow side to side and bottom of the radiator. The reason is because if top it can push out up thru the engine block it flows from bottom to the air, if it flows top to (crossflow).
