Could just be the aftermath of having it flushed. it will probably all burn off soon, dont be alarmed if you see it smoking but if it starts, deffinately pay very close attention to your temperature guage and dont let it overheat. my trans am caught on fire because it overheated, siezed up and i pulled over on grass (the only option i had) and it burnt everything front of the firewall. SO!! watch the temp guage. hope this helps!!

Heat not real hot until i rev engine


I had a 91 GMC 4.3 do the same thing. Liked to froze to ***** one winter. Found I had a air bubble (air lock) in the engine block and heater. It was a bear to get out. Finally installed back flush kit in the heater hose between engine and heater. Took cap off flush kit, pour coolant in through outlet till coolant ran through back to radiator. Replaced cap and started engine. Repeated again. Heater works as good as new. It's using the same principle as priming a gas powered water pump.

Heat doesnt work


check your fluids radiator should be full and resavor should be at full level if you dont have enough anti freeze it wont push fluid into your heater core also pay attention to your tempature gage if the temp is low you wont get good heat your thermostat could be stuck wide open I would try adding anti-freeze first though that usually fixes it make sure its 50/50 if you just add water sooner or later that water will evaporate

Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot


disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

Before! My car ran hot when I turned on a/c. At one time I was running 50/50 antifreeze. I changed the thermostat, and mechanic friend said take radiator top off run car for 15min to get water out of...


Never ever put undiluted coolant/antifreeze in your vehicle. It is to thick and will cause even more overheating and other problems as well. One fan should run almost the instant you turn the A/C on.
The other fan is controled by coolant temperature. You should check the fan relays, fuse's and coolant temperature sensors for proper operation. Also clean the condensor and radiator fins with a good stream of water from a garden hose, not high pressure water at a car wash. The water pump may be worn out as well.

I had this happen in two other cars. It turned out I had to replace the heater coil. ( Looks like a very small radiator) often located under the front passenger floor or in/on the firewall under the hood. Hope this helps.

Check engine light - low antifreeze


Chanses are the shop did chk. the coolant in the resavor and probly top it off but did not chk.the radiator witch was low and it drew out of resavor to fill radiator witch is the correct way to fill the radiator, just fill it back up with 50/50 (no water.) I don't think that would make the light come on, as you have a low coolant light for that. For piece of mind have it scaned to find out way the chk.engine light came on.
