Question about 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 2500
The upper hose blew up and got really hot. We replace the hose but it's been overheating since then. It takes two to three minutes to overheat. I would like to know possible causes for this and of course the solutions. I live in utah and it's relly cold right now, it's beeing snowing. I don't know if this has something to do with it. I put water in the radiator to see if it was licking but is not. I noticed that when removing the hose from the top of the radiator, and turning on the engine, water wasent going trough. any help and ideas would be really apreciated, thanks
Hi my name is Allen. Your hose blowing like it did can be 2 different problems. One your thermostat could have stuck causing it to overheat to the point of building so much pressure within the radiator that it caused the hose to blow. The other possible cause is you may have a blowed head gasket which is very expensive repair. The water not moving through the system with the hose off, could be because the water is going in the oil pan, pull the oil dipstick and check to see if the oil looks milky like a real light tan color and if the oil is way above the full line on the dipstick. If it is you have a blown head-gasket. If it is not, I would suggest replacement of the thermostat and see if that repairs your problem. You may contact me for futher assistance through FixYa.
