Question about 1995 Plymouth Voyager

2 Answers

Engine overheted and no heating inside

I noticed first that there is not heating in the car, I stopped and looked under the hood, the radiator cap was loose and drops of antifreeze were found at the radiator cap. I changed the radiator cap but I noticed that the engine started to overheat and I still did not have heating in the car. I think it could be the thermostat or air in the system.
Please provide a solution

Did you try to fill your cooling system back up to replace what was lost due to the loose radiator cap?

WONT BLOW OUT HOT AIR AND ENGINE OVER HEATS


If you get an overheating problem, the pressure in the system increases, The radiator cap has a pressure release valve to stop further damage to the system and release the pressure which gives the impression of coolant leaking out. Possible causes of overheating:- Low coolant level (a leak in the system). Thermostat not opening (need to replace). Cylinder head gasket leaking (need system pressure tested) indication of head gasket can be water in the oil, look in the oil filler cap, if there is a creamy brown sludge, indicates water present. Weather if the weather is hot, possible electric cooling fan isn't working. There is a possibility that the seal on the radiator cap is at fault (rare)

Oil leak


Not sure where your oil pressure sender is on that engine, but usually they are close to the filter. Or perhaps leaning on the top of the engine, like the fill cap, cracked something. Another possibility is a bad gasket on the new oil filter or overfill by 1 quart.

Overheating dodge stratus


Do a Compression Test on the Engine and see if you have a Blown Head Gasket. Chances are that is what is causing the Overflow... Exhaust Pressure is getting into the Cooling system

How do i put water in my radiator?


you need to replace thermostat and radiator cap.look under hood around engine compartment.look for a radiator cap near radiator,add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system to bring up boiling point.pure water will cause engine run hotter because water evaporate away,remove radiator pour coolant in the radiator until coolant stop dropping in the radiator now some vechicle pour coolant in the coolant overflow jug,pour coolant until coolant level stop dropping and the coolant level stay at cold full mark.start engie let idle few minutes, watch coolant level in radiator if coolant start dropping add more coolant, when coolant level stop dropping put radiator cap back on let engine idle until both top radaitor hose and bottom coolant hose get warm turn off engine wait until it get cool then take a large rag slightly open radiator just a litle at a time to keep from getting scaled.once radiator remove add more coolant if low,put radiator cap back on start the engine let it idle watch the temp gauge if temperature gauge going hot zone stop engine wait until cool then add more coolant,keep doing this until engine stop overheating going into hot zone and coolant level stop dropping,make the coolant overflow jug coolant level stay at full cold mark, dont let jug run empty if so air will get in the coolant system causing engine to overheat.

My 1998 stalled the oil pressure went up and it stated to overheat


Please follow the below instructions to cool down the overheat.

1 Turn off the engine.
2 Wait. If the engine is steaming, don't open the hood.
3 Pull the hood release lever under the dashboard to open the hood when the car has cooled completely.
4 Walk around the front of the car, reach under the hood, find the latch and squeeze it. As you squeeze the latch, pull up and open the hood.
5 Check the coolant reservoir tank first. It's a plastic jug that has a small hose running to the radiator. The reservoir can be filled when the engine is hot (except on German and Swedish cars, the plastic reservoir is also under pressure, so don't open when the engine is hot).
6 Open the radiator cap with a rag. Remember: open it only after the engine has completely cooled. If you're not sure, don't open the cap. If you open the cap while it's still warm, you may burn yourself with steam or hot coolant. Open the cap slowly, as if you were opening a bottle of soda that has been shaken up.
7 Examine the radiator. Look inside and see if there's coolant left. If needed, fill to the top of the radiator.
8 Put the radiator cap back on.
9 Check to see that the upper or lower radiator hose, or any of the heater hoses, hasn't burst.
10 Restart the engine.
11 Watch the temperature gauge obsessively. Don't let the needle go into the red. Turn off the engine if the gauge approaches the red zone.
12 Understand that you can continue driving a high-temperature vehicle if you're far from a phone or a service station and the car does not need coolant (or does not respond to these instructions). However, drive only as long as you stop and turn off the engine whenever the gauge gets close to the red, and let the engine cool down until you drive again. This may take a long time, but it probably beats walking.
THanks.

Heat is not working - coolant was low so filled it.... problem here... heard something about an air pocket


If you dont have an external coolant leak anywhere under your hood that has shown up on your driveway it could be the intake manifold or the headgasket leaking. Also check the thermostate to solve the heat issue.

I changed the thermostat and put in a new radiator on my 99 hyundai elantra. It drove fine i guess for about a week, but then started overheating again and stopped on me! Any suggestions? I smelled some...


You have some kind of a leak in the cooling systemDo you smell antifreeze when your inside the vehicle dose the heat work alright It may also be an engine vacuum leak you need to start it look under the hood and listen to where the hissing noise is comeing from if its cooling you should see antifreeze see if the floor is wet inside it could be the heater core and check vacuum lines for splits cracks on disconnected lines Ycould check to see if the radiator is holding pressure take a towel and turn the cap see if its under pressure but its going to be hot don;t get burned

Not sure if radiator fans are working, car overheating. which fuse do I check?


LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. ON DRIVER SIDE FOR FUSE BOX.LOOK ON FUSE BOX COVER IT HAS LOCATION FOR FUSES AND RELAYS.MOST TIME PROBLEM WITH COOLING FAN CIRCUIT WILL CAUSE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT.BAD ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR WILL CAUSE COOLANT FANS NOT TO TURN CAUSE OVERHEATING. ON.REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP SEE IF STOP OVER HEATING. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD HOTWIRE COOLANT FANS MAKE SURE FAN MOTORS ARE GOOD AND NO SHORTS AT FAN CONNECTOR WIRES.

2000 dodge caravan 3.3L is over heating


Hello, If your car overheats and damages the engine, you have no one to blame but yourself. Keep your eyes on the temperature gauge and never let the needle move into the red. Pull over before it gets too hot. And to resolve this follow this steps:

1. Turn off the engine.

2. Wait. If the engine is steaming, don't open the hood.

3. Pull the hood release lever under the dashboard to open the hood when the car has cooled completely.

4. Walk around the front of the car, reach under the hood, find the latch and squeeze it. As you squeeze the latch, pull up and open the hood.

5. Check the coolant reservoir tank first. It's a plastic jug that has a small hose running to the radiator. The reservoir can be filled when the engine is hot (except on German and Swedish cars, the plastic reservoir is also under pressure, so don't open when the engine is hot).

6. Open the radiator cap with a rag. Remember: open it only after the engine has completely cooled. If you're not sure, don't open the cap. If you open the cap while it's still warm, you may burn yourself with steam or hot coolant. Open the cap slowly, as if you were opening a bottle of soda that has been shaken up.

7. Examine the radiator. Look inside and see if there's coolant left. If needed, fill to the top of the radiator.

8. Put the radiator cap back on.


9. Check to see that the upper or lower radiator hose, or any of the heater hoses, hasn't burst.

10. Restart the engine.

11. Watch the temperature gauge obsessively. Don't let the needle go into the red. Turn off the engine if the gauge approaches the red zone.
