Radiator replaced now water seems to evaporate.

I recently had the radiator replaced and ever since the water does not seem to be circulating properly. I find myself having to add water to both the radiator and reserve tank almost every other day. I was told to replace the cooling sensor but can't find any information on that particular sensor, please help!

I doubt that the cooling sensor will make the water stop from disappearing.Maybe ask your mechanic to do a pressure test and find the leak.If your constantly filling the water its going some where and a pressure test should show you where its going

Clogged radiator. How many miles on the beast> over 100,000? I would suspect a clogged radiator. Remove the bottom hose and the cap off of the radiator and drain the system then. Start adding water to the radiator....it should never fill up with a garden hose because you will have a 1-1/2 hole in the bottom (disconnected hose). If it does then you need to replace the radiator or get it cleaned at a radiator shop.

If you were to take the upper radiator hose off the engine, and look into the resultant hole, you would see the thermostat.

The thermostat on all cars blocks water leaving the engine and going to the radiator, until the thermostat warms up enough to open.

While the thermostat is closed, water circulates through the heater hose, straight back to the inlet of the water pump. This circulation prevents hot spots, distributing the heat evenly to warm the engine up, and also brings that warmed water to the thermostat.

When the t-stat gets hot enough to open, water leaves the engine instead of circulating through it, and that allows cool(ed) water to flow from the radiator through the bottom hose to replace the water that left through the upper hose and t-stat.

The stub that the upper hose attaches to on the engine should be part of a small housing that is bolted to the engine. Removing that housing is how you remove the t-stat.

1992 honda accord dx runs but does not seem to circulate water. I replaced the thermostat and filled the radiator and water tank. Any suggestions?


Hello there:
If the waTEKR IS NOT CIRCULATING THEN I WOULD CHECK THE WATER PUMP CAUSE IF THIS IS NOT WORKING THE WATER WILL NOT CIRCULATE ALSO YOU CAN ALSO FLUSH THE ENTIRE RADIATOR CAUSE THEY WILL GET CLOGGED AND THIS WILL RESULT IN A NON CIRCULATING CONDITION OK?
HOPE THIS HAS BEEN VERY HELPFUL FOR YOU

Try removing the thermostat and then remove the bleeder screw, put in the water hose in the radiator/expansion tank and see if the water comes out with pressure. If yes the system is not restricted but otherwise probably the radiator is blocked.

Overheating


Well, assuming that the water pump is turning the correct way, looks like you are going to have to pull the radiator out & take it to a guy who cleans radiator interiors. Seems to me that you may have some sediment built up and the water is not circulating thru the rad. This would explain why the top is warm & the bottom cool with no thermostat. Whilst the rad is out, flush the block with water. See what comes out. Don't use a "flush kit" just yet. In my experience, the flush kits that you buy are not good for this issue, have it done by a pro, but, after he cleans it, then get a flush kit & flush the block anyway. If there is sediment in the radiator (from sitting), there is def sediment in the block.

The timing would have to be WAY OFF to make it overheat.
