Question about Ford Bronco

1 Answer

I got a new thermostat,thermostat housing,radiator cap, I flushed out the radiator, the waterpump seem to be workin fine, the clutch fan has a slight drag,and smooth turn when i move the fan by hand so I think the fan clutch is working, so heres the promblem when im moving, the temperture is fine, its when the traffic is backed up and im at a stand still for a long time,thats when the temperture is getting hot. I havent picked up a new radiator yet,and was wondering if I get the new radiator, will that fix the promblem? or do I have to pick up electric fans, cause I know its more powerful when it sucks air through the radiator? also if I do get the electric fan do I have to get a shorter belt to replace a belt driven fan if it has a self tentioner? cause I was told if u get electric fans u can eliminate the clutch fan by not using the clutch fan cause u will have the electric fan to cool the radiator...

Clean the radiator or change it. Because if the radiatos is clogged, not even will work with the electrical fan.

V6 3.0 getting hot


thermostat is on the waterpump. Follow the lower radiator hose to the housing. there should be three 10mm bolts should be holding the housing to the waterpump with the thermostat in between. If you are going to change it, then drain your cooling system first.

I have a 1993 ford conversion vAn overheats, new waterpump,thermostat. When going up hills it starts to over heat?


check for low coolant, the cooling fan clutch could be faulty it is free wheeling all the time, when engine is hot fan clutch should have some resistance when you turn it by hand. if all is good, your ignition timing could be off,your radiator and engine need flushing out,you could have faulty water pump, a bad egr valve will cause engine over heat if stuck closed which will engine combustion temperature get hotter.make sure you have 50 / 50 antifreeze and water in coolant system too much water in coolant system will cause engine over heat.also radiator pressure cap.check all those things i told you see what happens.

I put a new thermostat in my 1994 ford escort,and still dont have warm heat while my heater is on. How do I test to see if I have a bad waterpump?


If it where your water pump isthe vehicle would overheat. After you replaced the thermostat do you run the engine at idle with the radiator cap removed until the radiator fan came one? This will help push the air out of the system. There are two other possibilities. 1. The heater core is plugged. Back flushing the heater core may help remove the built up debris and get you heat again. 2. The blend door may not be fully transitioning from cold to hot. You should be ale to hear a district change in how the air sounds when switching from full hot to full cold. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Sounds like you still have air in the system..Does the vehicle have any bleeder screws on the thermostat housing or around the waterpump area..If it does open them up until you get a good stream coming out

I have a 1994 ford F-150 , 5- speed, 6 cylinder, Engine size 300. I have to pull over to the side of the road and turn the engine off because its overheating in stop and go traffic


If it only is overheating when going slow, then one of three problems exist; One, there is not enough coolant in the engine. Check the level of anti-freeze in the truck, and top off as neccessary.
Two,
the coolant is not circulating through the radiator and engine properly. Check the Thermostat, and replace as neccessary. The Thermostat should be changed every couple of years or so, anyway.
Three,
the air flow over the radiator is impeded somehow. Does this truck have a elcrtic Radiator fan? Or is it mechanical, being ran off the motor with a belt? If it is electric, then check the fans RELAY to see that it is working properly, and check the fan motor too. Check that there is no debris in the radiator fins.

Hope this helps.

All gaskets, waterpump, thermostat, radiator, heater core and coolant are new and it still runs at 230 DEG.. why?


How is the radiator cap? Are the cooling fans coming on? If so equipped. If it has a clutch fan, the fan clutch could be bad, which could cause the fan to not spin fast enough to cool the engine.

My BMW 330i is still running hot after replacing the thermostat and housing, fan, fan clutch, auxiliary fan and flushing the radiator any suggestions as to why?


It could be several reasons...1. make sure you dont have to bleed the coolant system, on some cars you have too, because there is air in the system, and the car will overheat..2. Your waterpump maybe bad also..3. Double check your coolant temp sensor, and or coolant temp switch..maybe faulty..4. Check your radiator cap...seal could be bad, and not sealing correctly...Question..How long does it take before it overheats...and are you getting any white or grey smoke out of the tailpipe? If so, then your head gasket is blown...Goodluck

Car over heating. tempature gauge fluxuates


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading

91 toyota camry overheating problem


So far you did the right things in the right order. If you have a pressure cap (looks like a radiator cap to the rear side of the engine. Dealer $15) change the pressure cap also and then flush the radiator. A sure sign of blockage is when you open the radiator look around inside the top if you see brown or green kind of gunky stuff. Flush the radiator anyway.
If after the radiator is flushed and you still overheat, the next posibility is the head gasket. But don,t worry yet, follow these steps and observations. (this goes for 93 camry V6 also, I have one)

  1. change radiator cap and pressure cap where applicable
  2. Change the thermostat.
  3. Some cars may have a thermo switch which ramps up the fan(double fan designs). Change that if applicable.
  4. flush the radiator and engine block
  5. change waterpump AND headgasket.
The temperature guage can tell you what you need to know.
  1. If the guage starts to spike up after stopping, pausing in traffic or while in gear not moving but it is fine while driving along the highway, then you are having a blockage in the cooling system. FLUSH SYSTEM.
  2. if there is a bubbling sound in the engine when you turn it off, FLUSH SYSTEM
  3. If the car overheats at anytime, anywhere and it drinks coolant like a fish, then you my friend have a headgasket problem. Change waterpump and head together
