Sounds like you may still have air in the system.

with the engine cold remove the radiator cap. top off with coolant as necessary. start the engine and allow to idle until completely warmed up. keep an eye on the coolant level and top off as necessary. Once the vehicle has warmed up you should start to feel heat. If not rev the engine up a little to help push out the air.

Radiator not heating up or building pressure

Lower radiator hose


None. Open the petcock on the radiator to drain the cooling system into a drain pan. Close the petcock, remove the clamps that hold the lower radiator hose to the radiator and the water pump. Remove the hose, install the new one, install the clamps, fill the cooling system, and you're done. With the radiator cap off, run the vehicle with the heat on until the engine gets up to operating temperature, allowing the thermostat to open, to allow you to be able to completely fill the system. Install the cap and you are done.

Car over heats


Check and see if the Radiator cooling fan is working. It should cycle more or run continuously when the AC is on. There are often 2 heat sensors for the Temperature, 1 is for the gauge and the other is for the Radiator fan.

Just having water flow is not enough to cool the engine, the electric Radiator fan makes a big difference. There should be a Relay in the Powerbox. You can get Diagrams for the wiring at Autozone.com when you register for FREE. Then you will be able to tell what is in the Powerbox and get chassis wiring diagrams.

Since you had a new radiator installed, there is a possibility that the electric fan was not reconnected.

1990 toyota 4runner over heating imetiatly new thermostat heater will not blow hot air doese not leak antifreze only steams


Since you have a new thermostat installed and no heat and overheatingyou have one of two or a combination of problems. You either have a bad water pump or a clogged radiator. The radiator can be flow checked at a radiator shop, if it flow checks fine replace the water pump. The pump may not have play in it indicating it is bad, but the shaft inside cold be broken so that the fan turns and the pulley turns on the outside but not internally where it counts.

I recommend this procedure, starting with a cold engine: Remove the radiator cap, remove the thermostat, re-install the thermostat housing, leave the radiator cap off, start engine and idle for not less than fifteen minutes, then turn engine off. Allow engine and radiator to cool completely, then open the petcock at the bottom of the radiator, and drain completely (there will still be some coolant/water in the system).
Remove the thermostat housing again, then remove the old water pump and install a new water pump, replace the thermostat with a new one rated at 195 degrees, and be sure to install it in the proper direction. Fill radiator with water only (you don't want to waste money on antifreeze until you are sure you have heat), leave radiator cap off, start engine and let it come to operating temperature, not less than fifteen minutes. Turn engine off, and let cool compltely. Fill radiator with water only, install radiator cap, and restart vehicle. Let come to operating temperature again, not less than fifteen minutes, turn off. Let cool completely, drain radiator again if your truck got proper heat in cabin, then refill with the proper mixture of water/antifreeze. This sounds like a lot of repetition, but this will flush your entire system, boost your water pressure, and properly regulate your engine temperature. If the problem repeats in your two month window, have the radiator professionally serviced and the heater core will probably have to be replaced.
Always use the proper type and amount of anitfreeze!

We have just put a new head in mazda bravo 2.5 td and we have just installed new thermostat and flushed radiator and it still heats up quickly on steep hills and rapidly cools back down on flat going


dear friend-it sounds like you are having a circulation problem,when the engine has reached normal working temp feel the two radiator hoses they should be the same heat,also check the water pump to see if the impeller is not loose,it is not to say that the radiator is clean after a flush,it must be opened to clean.

1996 chevy corsica 2.2 liter engine. Coolant temp never reaches above one-quarter hot, therefore no heat. I've put in four thermostats, installed new radiator, disconnected the cooling fan, still no heat....


You may have a stopped-up heater core. It's a little radiator inside your dash; it's where the heat comes from. I don't understand why the temp gauge isn't reading any higher than that...
