Why does my deawoo over heat and blows hot air out the radaitor cap
Sounds like you dont have enough coolant in the system. wait till it is cold fill up the coolant system, then start it up. as the gauge reaches operating temperature watch your cooling fans and see if they turn on. if it just gets hotter and hotter and the fans dont turn on then you may have a bad connection, blown fuse, or relay. if the fan turns on but your car continues to get hot replace your thermostat. if you are still having problems it is most likely your water pump. you may want to check the weep hole located on the bottem side of the pulley, if it is weeping water then the bearing is toast and you need to replace it, you can also loosen the belt and wiggle the pulley around, if it moves around its likely toast if it seems good and tight it should be fine, also check all heater core hoses, bypass hoses, radiator hoses for loose ends, cracked hoses, bad fittings, etc.. you can check the radiator by looking for drips while its running or my taking it in to a radiator shop and having it pressure tested.
