SOURCE: 95 Subaru Legacy overheating, top rad hose is hot,

does your heater work? if not than your thermostat is stuck. be careful not to get the car hot as those engines are sensitive and will warp the cylinder heads quickly.

I have no heat inside my cab on a 2003 dodge ram 2500. heater core is not blocked

either you have a bad thermostat or you have a air lock in your heater hoses remember your heater is fed by the hose by the upper rad hose return is the hose going to the water pump, to bleed the air out fill rad leave the rad cap off start engine run for 5 min. the check the coolant level,fill to top of neck replace rad cap tight, K-D tools make a special funnel to solve this air lock problem

02 chevy malibu pushes antifreeze out of resivour but dosent get hot any thoughts?

If it doesn't over heat it's very possible that there is just too much coolant, so if it's leaking from the overflow there is no problem as that's what it's designed to do

Radiator tank filling procedure

take off the radiator cap and fill the rad with antifreeze. start the montor and keep watching the level of the antifreeze and keep adding as necessary. when the termostat opens you sould shee a sudden drop in level.... keep adding antifreeze. squeezing the upper rad hose will help remove air bubbles. BE EXTREMELY CARE OF THE FAN AND OTHER MOVING PARTS TO PREVENT INJURY. after you are satisfied that you have added enough fluid put the rad cap back on. fill the overflow tank to the leven it indicates.... take it for a drive and let it cool down. open the rad cap and top of the fluid if necessay.

did you use pure antifreeze if so remove it all and add a 50/50 mixture because antifreeze will not heat up good if its pure. needs water to allow good heat.

Spraying Antifreeze out the back/hole in hose near upper rad hose

How important is the back heater? Maybe you can bypass it with a short hose and not worry about it anymore.

Heat does not come on when truck is not moving 2002 Dodge Ram

you need to get under the dash board and remove the passenger lower kick panel. ther will be a small motor bolted into the evaporator housing. remove it and manually move the blend door. if the heat gets hot the you need a blend door actuator.

you may need ot do a cooling system flush, go buy a bottle of radiator flush, put it in the radiator when it is cold, run the car for about 15 mins, and go up to the car wash and take the upper rad hose off, and use the power washer to push all of the gunk and anti-freeze through the system. do it until it runs clean.... let the car run for 2 mins with the hose off after flushing and buy straight antifreeze, not 50/50. add it to the radiator, you should have heat.....

If this does not work, then your control unit in your dash may be bad....
