First, try sqeezing the hoses several times too get any air out of them. second, you may have put the thermostat in backwards, so it is not going to open and let the coolant flow thru.you could ruin your engine instead of your radiator. good luck

While going down highway getting hot and losing power.


Loss of power is likely caused by overheat condition. Check your coolant level, thermostat operation(both upper and lower radiator hoses should feel hot), fan motor/clutch operation and radiator cap for proper pressure retention. Also, pressure test cooling system if coolant is leaking out.

How to tell if radiator is not working on 2004 Grand Prix changed everything else


If rad is plugged/restricted the vehicle will overheat. If thermostat is opening, both upper and lower rad hoses will get hot. If there is a rad problem with circulation, the upper hose will get hot and the lower hose will be cool/warm

Why is the air in cab not hot?


Yes a vacuum leak can cause the vent valves under the dash to not operate. To check this go from heat to defrost and see if you can feel the air flow change from out the dash or foot area to the window area. If it does change then it is probably not a vacuum problem.

I have the same problems no heat, replaced thermostat, both hoses to heater core are hot as well as the upper and lower radiator hoses. The radiator cap doesn't get hot either. Coolant does not get hot...


If you live in an area where it is very cold as I do in the winter try putting some carboard between the rad. and the grill. This contains the heat lost. Just make sure you remave it when it gets warmer.

Heat does not come on when truck is not moving 2002 Dodge Ram


you need to get under the dash board and remove the passenger lower kick panel. ther will be a small motor bolted into the evaporator housing. remove it and manually move the blend door. if the heat gets hot the you need a blend door actuator.

98 runner cooling issues


You probably have airlock in the cooling system.

Not sure about the 4 runner's cooling system, but if there is airlock I usually take the coolant back out, take the thermostat back out, fill the engine block from this hole with 50/50 coolant, reinstall the thermostat, upper hose, fill the radiator and tank, then run the vehicle with the heater on max (rad cap off) and then fill the rad as the rest of the air comes out.
