Truck leaking a little antifreeze after i had it blown out a month ago smell antifreeze thru vents when heat is on


Hi Mary, I'm glad to help! Mary, this is a common problem that occurs after flushing the coolant system. The heater core was corroded and the cleaner removed the rust from it and now its leaking and that why you smell coolant with the heater on. Unfortunately the complete dash will have to be removed to fix this problem. CAUTION: Do not put STOP-LEAK in the system, this only causes engine overheating problem. Instead, if you don't have the money to repair it right now, then you can have someone BY-PASS the heater core under the hood. This will give you time to save up for the proper repair. CAUTION: Do Not continue to drive it with that way because you are losing coolant everytime you drive the vehicle and will cause overheating and damage to your engine and that will be really costly. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mary. To bad you don't live in the St Louis Mo area.

Replaced water pump, coolant pipe, and thermostat, car still running hot


Did you change the head gaskets, they may be bad or you may have a cracked head. Heater core may be plugged up. May have to take it and have it flushed out.

We replaced the water pump, thermostat yesterday , still have a overheating problem. Acts like an air lock in the system. bled everthing and still overheating.


If you get a constant peculation of air bubbles out the radiator while your bleeding the system than you are likely another victim of the well know head gasket failures that occur on these engines (3.4 liter). All it takes is one overheating and they are done.

I would assume that you are sure the thermostat is working?

Heater problem:- LR Disco 1996


Having same problem with mine. I am replacing the thermostat tomorrow to see if that works. Put a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator. Drive down the highway a few miles in the cold weather. If heater warms up, replace the thermostat and you should be good to go.

Car drove great one day but the next day it started overheating after driving about 5-7 minutes. Had the thermostat changed, the coolant reservoir and cap changed, coolant changed twice, hoses checked. ...


ok, is it losing fluid? check the floor board by the passenger seat, up under the dash, is it wet? Your heater-core may be shot. The core is tucked up behind your glove compartment. If it's plugged, water won't circulate and won't be able to be cooled, causing it to overheat.

Engine overheating audi 4.2 a8 1999


I would have the cooling fan checked, and have the thermostat changed. An overheated thermostat (overheating caused by something else) will cause problems in the future.

Holden Barina 1996 Car is overheating in minutes, thermostat and heater tap have recently been replaced, coolant level is full, fan fuse is ok what could be the problem?


Hi! Was the thermostat and other items replaced due to this overheating? you say coolant level full? maybe your header tank is full but the system isn't? Try bleeding the system. From cold, start the engine with radiator/header tank cap OFF stay with the vehicle and have some very warm water handy. DON'T look over the filler but watch it as the car gets to operating temperature if the water drops drastically top it up with warm water again stay with the car it may take a long time to level out. If the car is bubbling furiously and doesn't want to settle then possible HEAD GASKET Failure or Water pump.
Does your oil look milky on the dipstick? is there an excessive amount of water coming out of the exhaust? are your hoses swelling with radiator/header tank cap on at operating temp?
Sorry to be the possible bearer of bad tiding if the Gasket has gone, but better to sort it now than cause irreprable damage?

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.


Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.
