With a 1993 you do not want to run it with out the thermostat it will damage the engine but you might want to try getting a low temp thermostat from advance auto parts and try that

Flush with fluid surpenion system why remove heating hose

surpenion system.? wow no year stated !!

what are you doing ,just a flush? of engine coolant

my guess you are reading the steps. and wonder why we do it fully

there are 2 flush ways. 1 is poor way and way 2 is ASE.

i will not mention shop way with the $10,000 machine.

1: poor way, open drain bottom rad, run water from rad cap

until drain runs clear. (ok on a 2 year old car. sure)

2 pro way.

he back flushs all cooling system parts and makes sure all flow good.

1: RAD (end to end)



4: THE BYpass hoses are flowing good.

other? sure. depends on engine option (size)

on my cars , IR pyro gun the rad tubes as a last check. (hot)

to be sure all tubes are working... ask.... a $15 tool , like no other.

it a choice,

2003 towncountry over heating.replaced rad and thermstat but still over heating what the f cuold it beit has a 3.3 ....the rad had side blown out to begin with replaced it with upper,lower hoses and...

1. With what you have replaced, the only remaining credible explanation is the Water Pump. If the Water Pump is not operating correctly, this will cause overheating. The Radiator -"side blow out"? Did the radiator cap you have on not work. Overheating should cause fluid = steam to blow out the cap and not blow out the side of the radiator.
2. One thing you can do before replacing the Water Pump is to flush your entire system. There could be a blockage in the system. These flushing kits are available at most stores (Walmart or Autoparts Stores) and you can do it yourself.
3. Was the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (mounted near the thermostat) also changed out? If this was malfunctioning it could be giving you a false reading.
The Water Pump is the likely culprit if the Van is truely overheating.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Coolant system

If your coolant level is dropping, I would suggest that you take a good look at the water pump. That is a very common coolant leakage probelm area on your vehicle. I change 2-3 a week.
Hope this helps.

No heat on a 1994 4 cyl. Dodge Caravan

Pretty common on those. I used CLR and disconnected my heater hoses & with a small pump, I ran CLR only, through the heater core, and let it sit in there overnight, flushed it through again next day, back flush as well. re-connect hoses, run engine with heater on, and rad cap off until the rad fan comes on 2 or 3 times, then put cap back on, to bleed air out of system. Cleaned it out enough to get the heat flowing again. If you changed thermostat and didn't let it run with heat on, and rad cap off for a while as described above, then do that first, just to make sure you haven't just got an air lock in the system.
