SOURCE: 1996 buick roadmaster keeps overheating:

A shotgun approach to repairs can really rack up the bills.

If your symptoms are loss of water and you have replaced the thermostat, you more than likely have an issue with steam. And that steam more than often comes from a bad head gasket. Most head gasket gasket failures seem to be confined to the water side initially, but let it go on bigger damage will occur.
You can buy a litmus test strip to dunk in the coolant. It will indicate if there are exhaust residuals in the water and thus a gasket failure.

However it may just be something simple, given that you have just about replaced everything:

have you given the radiator a good hosing inside and out?
is the radiator fan running when it should be?

Only way to get smoke (steam) billowing in is a faulty heater core. It won't steam until the engine is warm. You should also be smelling an odor unless you have pure water in your cooling system. That vehicle requires the removal of the steering column and entire dashboard to replace the heater core.

Your first problem is to find out why the intermittent no-power problem. Honestly, that sounds like a loose conmnection somewhere. check all your grounds for clean and tight conditions Also, battery connections and alternator connections. Double check your power distribution center for any loose wires or poor connections. Once you solve that problem, then you can diagnose the other problems with poor idle and temp. gauge.

Is there enough anti-freeze in the system?
If so perhaps the system needs bleeding.
On the front of the engine, on top near the big upper hose goose neck and nestled between the runners of the intake manifold is a small nipple that looks like a brake bleeder (10MM). This is a cooling system bleeder, a close cousin to the brake bleeder. When opened it will purge the system of air- likely the culpret you are experiencing. on a cold or just warm engine, this can be slightly opened with a wrench and the air can be "Burped" out. Attach a 1/4" clear hose to the nipple and open the bleeder until you see all the air has left the manifold. (Run the hose into a bucket and dispose of the used anti-freeze properly.)
if that doesn't do it, maybe the thermostat is stuck in the open position. Replace it with a cold engine and use a new gasket each time.
If all else fails, the heater core may be plugged.

SOURCE: Why won't my cargo light go off on my 2007 Toyota

Two possibilities:

1. The switch on the light is set to be on all the time.

2. The door switch is not functioning correctly. Find the switch and try depressing it manually and see if you can get the light to turn off. If so, replace the switch.

If the resistor bypass doesn't solve it, another remedy could be a plug-in type engine block heater- I mean plug into household current. It keeps the engine coolant warm in the block. Every other car here in Montana uses one-works great for those below zero nights. When the wife pulls into work, just run an extension line and keep the car plugged in till time to go. Other than that, IDK, sounds like you've covered it pretty well as far as solutions.

99 ford mustang 6 cylinder. Recently i had to add antifreeze to my car couldn't find the radiator drain to take some of the water out so i loosened the lower coolant hose to drain some out after...


replace any soft hoses.
collapsed hoses cause water flow constriction
.that increases temp fast

to bleed air out of the system . if no air bleeder as such
with heater on full .-engine running
loosen the bypass pipe for the closed thermostat till only coolant flows no air bubbles
check if
the engine cooling fan spinning fast enough
the water pump in good condition
the interior directional flaps motors or actuators working

Why isn't my heater in my car getting warm


There could be several reason. The water pump could be weak. The radiator could be low on Anti freeze. The control valve on the heater line from the motor could be malfunctioning. The thermostat could be bad. You may even have an air bubble in the system that is causing the problem. The only way to be sure is to test each are. Check the fluid level and make sure it is good then run the vehicle till it warms up. With the vehicle running and warm locate the control valve on the hose running from the motor or radiator to the firewall, there are two. One will have the valve on it. You can open this valve manually and see if that allows the interior to warm up. If it does then the controller and vacuum lines to that valve. If it doesn't then remove the thermostat and see if that resolves the issue. If that doesn't resolve the issue replace the water pump.

Should i drain the cooling system on my 2001 mercury sable


Every 5 years,you really should,if you put more than 10,000 miles a yeasr on it.
Check the coolant for freeze protection every year and every time you add anti-freeze or water after you've run it for an hour or more(to let it mix thoroughly into the expansion tank).
If the coolant has been in there and has a dirty look, even if it tests good, you should do a flush.
Your heater has a bypass hose above the hoses that connect to the heater core. So just take a pair of clampin end vice grips and clamp off the hose before it enters the heater core(this is if you have a great heater and KNOW the heater core doesn't need flushed).The block on your car has a drain plug(allen head,I believe)on each side of the block down low towards the front.You can remove these to do a great flush or you can just keep flushing water hose water thru the radiator. The sequence is this...........
(1) Drain all you can out of the radiator(there''s a big plastic cover under the car you need to remove to get to it on the driver's side radiator).
(2)You can remove the engine block drain plugs or not,IF you really flush it well.
When you are satisfied you have most anti-freeze replaced with water, you start the car with the proper level of water in the expansion tank,and add your flushing agent.Of course follow its directions, but after running the car for a few minutes, be aware you may need to add more water as the thermostat opens.
(3)After draining out the dirty water,let the engine cool for at least an hour,then fill it with HOT water to prevent any cracking of block or heads.This also you drain out and let the engine cool all the way down.
(4)NOW you're ready to fill with full-strength anti-freeze(Prestone or equal quality)but don't use the 50/50 strength.Becausde your engine has water in it, you will blend automatically.
(2) Two gallons of antifreeze will do nicely to give you a 60 anti-freeze to 40 water ratio or thereabouts,and that will test to greater than 40 below zero F. don-ohio

First you need to purge the trapped air out of the system. Go to a shop that has evac/fill equipment and tehy can do it for about $75. It is ahrd to get air out. park uphill and rasie front of truck as high as possible, and keep cap loose during warm up. It will burp air. Then tighrten cap & let it cool while keeping the reservoir full during cool down. Repeat at least once. Make sure hose from rad to reservoir is tight at both ends to avoid sucking air in.

report results.

please rate if helpful

No heat is a sign of trapped air.

What is the best coolant for my 2001 Dodge neon? It is hot here where I live and I don't want anything to happen to the car/


any of the green or universal antifreeze will work... you have to mix a 50/50 mixture with water, the antifreeze isnt actually doesn't conduct the heat, thats what the water is for. antifreeze is only to keep your water from freezing in the winter, also to lubricate your water pump and is to prevent the water from corroding or rusting the inside of your engine.
