I had a 2003 buick hyderf rent it keep getting hot chang thevwater pump theomasant still hot what next?

Radiator is stopped up and/or it has dirt & debris preventing air flow through the outside wire venting.

Leave radiator cap off, Start the engine, let it heat up and watch to see if the water is flowing past where the cap fits. If water level drops-add water. If water does not flow/move then the radiator is stopped up. Take the radiator to radiator shop and have a professional flush.

If you have good water movement & it gets hot then the air flow through the outside venting is restricted. You may be able to use your garden water hose with high pressure jet stream & spray all the venting areas that may be clogged with dirt, bugs& debris. In any case DO NOT KEEP THE AUTO RUNNING WHILE DOING THIS.

Another problem may be that one of you hoses could be collapsing and the water will not flow. I advise changing all of your hoses based on the age of your vehicle . End of msg.

Some times water comes out under car but car wasnt running hot and will have to add antifreez, once the heater wouldnt blow hot air but now dose sometimes no water runs out but have to add water to...

Next time you see some water under the car, look to see exactly where it dripped. If the water dripped out right near the firewall, it may be just the drain from the ac evaporator core.

So were you running the ac when you saw the water?

So next time you see the water, put your finger in it and smell of the water. Is it clean water, or is it water with antifreeze? You will be able to tell if its antifreeze or if its just evaporator core drainage.

My temp guage just shot up to past the H, my coolant is empty. Do I just wait for car to cool down and add water to radiator or add coolant at any time, or both?

DON'T PUT WATER IN IT HOT!!! You need to wait a few hours to add water water, the engine should be cool to the touch. Or if you can heat several gallons of water to around 170 degrees or so you could add to the system hot. This is also dangerous since that hot of water can burn you. Adding cold water to hot metal you run the risk of cracking your engine, or at least your radiator. Best of luck hope this helps.

2007 Pontiac G6 GT radiator fan keeps running after engine is turned off. Runs for another 4-5 mins after engine is turned off.

Heat sensor keeps blowing air thru radiator until it cools, then cuts off. Some auto do this. If it bothers you let the engine idle a few min. after you drive it and then turn car off. When you drive your car and the engine is hot it heats up even more when you turn it off because the water has quit circulating. The fan will run til it cools. It's supposed to do that.

Heater quit working runing hot no water in

Fill it up, run until it's hot and see if you see anything coming out of the water pump. I don't think the heater has anything to do with the running hot problem. The heater valve may need replaced or freed up. Good luck!

Engine starts but shuts down immeditately

1989 Chrysler 2.5 L Turbo has a duel hall effect pick-up in the distributor. It is possible that the pick-up is not working. A "start and stall" indicates that this may be the problem.
Another problem may be the fuel system. Check fuel pressure with key on... should be 40-50 psi on multi-port. 30-40 on TBI
PS If the auto shutdown relay quit then you would not get a start at all. PSS oil pressure will cause a similer problem

How do i add oil and water to a toyota corolla 1990

Well, water or coolant should be added to the plastic overflow tank which will be labeled (usually on a black, round cap) as such. They usually are a yellowish or white plastic which is translucent. You'll identify it by words on the side that say "Full hot" and/or "full cold".

I believe on the early 90s corollas the radiator is a sealed unit, but if not look for an octagon shaped cap that says very clearly not to open when hot. Obviously, this means you'll want to make sure the vehicle has been shut off for at least half an hour or more (depending on how hot it runs.) before removing that cap and checking the level. I would recommend that you not add plain water alone. You should always add at least a 50/50 mix of water and coolant. You can readily find pre-mixed coolant at most auto stores and/or department stores.

As for oil, you will find a round cover, most likely with a gnurled grip, on a valve cover, or in front or behind the engine mounted to a tube about 1" to 1 1/2" in diamater. The cover will likely say "Motor Oil" on the top of it, and may tell you what viscosity of oil to use as well.
