Change the thermostat. it is located at the end of the a radiator hose. The hose attaches to the thermostat housing outlet . The thermostat is under the housing. Also have it scanned for a trouble code . It could be the temperature control sensor.

Need to add coolant, where is radiator cap?

No idea

No vehicle to refer to

If your adding --your best find & repair
the leak in the coolant system

You add to the system through the coolant fill cap, if you
have no radiator cap

If you follow the top radiator hose, you will see it

The big white container is a coolant tank,degas bottle,or over flow tank

That also has to have coolant & is checked when cold

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.

Car temp gauge reads hot but it doesn't seem to be running hot. I have changed the thermostat, cooling fan sensor and temp gauge sensor, still reading almost hot to the red. The water is flowing through...

From your description, it does not sound like it is actually running hot.
Might be a faulty gauge or computer unit.
I hate to say it, but sometimes worth taking to the dealer to check annoying ones like this.

Well one hot and one cool hose means the coolant is not flowing thru the radiator. That could be from a defective pump, closed thermostat, air in the system, or a blockage in the radiator. You might try running the engine with the thermostat out to check flow.

Radiator overflow container always empty

better change out your Plenium (Intake) before it ruins your engine ! Part is about $125.00 and comes with gaskets and a new Intake and new EGR Tube you replace also, what it is doing is leaking internally and burning it, it will eventually start to miss and quit on you Hydrolocking the engine. water does not compress in cylinders. If you are lucky you won't have to do lower intake gaskets or head gaskets......But get it fixed before too LATE !

Is it possible the replacement engine has a water pump that turns the opposite direction from the original ?
The thermostat has to be open to allow flow thru the radiator, have you tried running without a thermostat to check flow ?

Hello: You can do the following, Get a infrared temp sensor and check the temperature of the radiator and if it shows hot then remove the radiator and take it to a radiator shop and have it flow checked. If its not flowing properly that would make it run hot.
