SOURCE: overheating

1. start the engine and leave the radiator cap open.
2. put a cardboard cover or a rug in the front of you radiator.
3. let it runs 20 minutes or more, see if it is overheated and see the water or coolant in the radiator circulated or not. If not, as soon as you have already changed water pump. thermostate and check the hoses, no leak, I think your radiator was blocked.


Did you put stop leak before?

I couldn't find any diagram on the internet for you, but you can call your local auto part stores for a Haynes Manual for your vehicle, or you can go to this link, I found a repair manual for you on ebay

You can replace the radiator yourself, but why do you need to? The thermostat is on the engine. Follow the large hose that goes to the engine block....not the water pump. The thermostat is under that or sits on the top of the engine....looking for a pic for you!

My radiator is lossing water and no sign of leakage


great question, a nice symptoms posted.!!!! and car !
The water, (coolant) can only go 3 places.
1: on the ground, (or at passenger toes, look there)
2: into the inside of the engine (see engine oil turn to milk chocolate shake?
3: in the the A/T tranny pan, same thing same milk.
4: out the exhaust, pipe end point, see steam there ALL THE TIME?

this is short term loss.
long term is normal this is evaporation.
here are the tests.

1: no steam ,tail
2: no carbon or oil in rad neck (cold)
3: milk in pans. per above.
4: rad neck tester (green/blue) chem test unit finds exh. gasses in the rad.
5: same place, RAD leak down tester.
6: compression test. all cyl.
7: cylinder leak down tester can even show me here it leaks (ASK, this is advanced testing methods but easy to do)

New radiator (correct for that model) has extra copper pipes at bottom


The extra pipes are intended for connection to a transmission fluid cooler in a trailer towing application. The replacement part is multi-purpose

Where is the thermostate located


The thermostat will be located either at the upper radiator hose inlet to the engine, or it will be located at the lower radiator hose inlet to the engine.

Remember that the spring end of the thermostat should always go towards the engine, and not towards the hose.

Also with a lower mounted thermostat, when it comes time to add coolant you should dis-connect the upper radiator hose at the radiator and fill the engine through the radiator hose, if you do not then there will be very little coolant in the engine block until the thermostat opens up, and by then your engine could be toast.

2.2 liter engine, getting hot. change tstat, same. pulled water pump. impeller looks good. This is on a 97 cavalier.


I would start your car when it is cold and feel the upper radiator hose. When the car starts to warm up the thermostat you have installed will open up and you will feel the water flow past where you are squeezing the hose and the hose will become very hot. This will tell you if you thermostat is opening and installed correctly and if you water pump is working.

If your radiator cap is not working properly the system isn't sealed and this can cause the coolant to boil over and your car to overheat. Might want to repalce that they are cheap.

I would also pull the radiator cap while the car is running and look at the coolant, does it appear to be flowing smoothly thru the radiator. Have a helper rev up the motor while you look at the coolant in the radiator. When they rev it up do you see a lot of cavitation in the radiator (bubbles). If so this is an indication of a leaking head gasket. Observe the tail pipe for white smoke to aid in this diagnosis. Just because neither of this two conditions are present doesnt mean you don't have a leaking head gasket, I would also get a head gasket combustion kit from NAPA it will tell you if there is comnbustion in the coolant.

Finanally are all of your cooling fans working properly?

Cooling system requires burp.


A large air pocket can sometimes be tricky to get rid of. The easiest way is to jack the front end up in the air with the wheels off the ground and support with jack stands, remove the radiator cap(make sure engine is cool) and allow to sit over night in this condition. The elevated front end will allow the air pocket to move to the most highest point and then escaping out the top of the radiator, after doing this procedure make sure to inspect coolant level in radiator and overflow reservoir and top off as needed.
