When the engine is cold You will use a pair pod pliers to release the tension on the squeeze clamps. Then you remove the hose. Once the new hose is installed top off the coolant on the radiator. Start the engine and let idle until the fans come on keeping an eye on the coolant level and topping off as necessary. Once the fans come on replace the cap and you should be good to go. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

SOURCE: 2005 Hyundai accent overheating, radiator

A car can overheat for a lot of reasons.First make sure this is the problem by checking the radiator hose or water level. Open the radiator cap when the car is cold, crank it, and then watch the water level. If it drops when the car warms up this is not the problem.
The tools you will need will depend on what you have to take off to get to it. If you can access the thermostat you should only need a ratchet or wrench to remove it and something to scrape off old gasket with.
Location:The thermostat should be inside the thermostat housing on the motor. Follow your top radiator hose to the place where it goes into the motor. There should be a sort of dome shaped housing there with probably a bolt on either side of it.The thermostat is inside that.
This is a reasonably easy job, but shouldn't be done carelessly. It's also kind of messy.
When the car is cold remove the bolts from the housing with a ratchet. Lots of coolant and water will drain out. But the thermostat will be visible.Pay attention to which side of the thermostat is up.It should just lift up. Remove all the old gasket from around the area and clean it up well. Replace the thermostat and gasket then the bolts. Be very careful not to over tighten the bolts or the housing will be ruined.

SOURCE: why is my 1998 hyundai accent overheating?

The head gasket has gone so pressure builds up in the cooling system and forces water out of the overflow

You need someone to take the head off , skim it and fit a new gasket

My Honda prelude starting to smoke yesterday. I believe it is steam. I saw green liquid on certain parts under the hood. It wasn't a lot but when I came to a stop and turned off the car it was noticeable....


i recommend you don't drive to far and get a mechanic too check it out as you risk overheating and blowing the head gasket which is expensive. You need to get the cooling system pressure checked too find the leak and rectify it. hopefully just a hose but possably a water pump.

No heat from vents after car sits freezing for 3 weeks


It sounds like you may have an air bubble in the system. Try disconnecting the highest heater hose and see if you can burp some air out of it. Is your coolant solution strong enough so it's not freezing up? Also before you disconnect the heater hose, feel it, is it warm? If the heater hoses are warm, then the problem could be with the heater
itself.

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...


From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

Smoke could be caused by a leak from head gaskets, replace head gasket, k. Temperature increase could be caused by a defective thermostat or a slightly plugged radiator. Clean radiator and thermostat.

Steam out from engine pipes/hose


Check you engine oil. If it is white or cream color there is water in the oil. If you are not leaking water onto the ground and the water level keeps dropping it's a good indication of a possible head gasket failure. Good luck.

Overflow and hose disconnected


near the radiator cap.  However, this won't make the car overheat.  Have you filled and bled the cooling system?

I am installing a new radiator into a 2000 Hyundai Accent GL


Try this.
If the two hoses are connected to the correct locations on the transmission, take the shorter hose and see which fitting it reaches on the radiator. If it reaches only one, you have the answer.
The radiator is used to cool the transmission fluid.

If the water bubbles in the resevoir when the engine is running, the head gasket could be blown. There is often white smoke (steam) coming from the exhaust.
