All depends on where the leak is. Could also be a blown head gasket.
The temp gauge does not read because there is no liquid for it to measure.

SOURCE: 91 Mustang GT running Hot

does the fan come on when supposed to? you could hook your fans to a toggle switch and run them manually from start to finish this may help. also did you bleed the system after replacing these parts and purge all air from cooling system? is the coolant coming out of the resovoir hose?

SOURCE: why is my car running hot?losing water

Blown head gasket resulting in super heated water (pegging gauge) then creating excessive pressure and blowing the hose off. Take the cap off and rev it and if it shoot water out like Old Faithful that's the problem.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Probably not water pump. Engine is notourious for vapour lock.
Cooling system must be blead of air before thermostat will work. Cool bottom rad hose is a dead give away. If you are still watching this forum reply , and I will walk you through the only way I know how to make it work properly. It's actually easy if you do it my way. I have worked on lots of cars , and this engine was the hardest to bleed out. Did one Yesterday , and works perfect.

I have a 2001 dakota that is overheating. put in new thermostat, didnt help. put in new water pump, still overheating. finally replaced the radiator. still is overheating. what else can I do to fix it


Sometimes when you open cooling system, air gets in, it can cause problems with temp gage.
How hot does it get in degrees F? Is the coolant boiling over? Are you losing coolant? Use a non-contact infra red temp gun to take engine temp, At least we will have a degrees F reading. Most temp gages say hi or lo, cold or hot. I don't know about yours?
Can you check for combustion gases in the coolant?

After a radiator refill start and run engine till hot then top up . If it still overheats it may have a compression leak or a cracked head . after the engine is hot ,fit a pressure gage to the radiator run engine under load and if pressure rises quickly it has leak or crack .

1990 toyota pickup is running hot and when i shut


Try with the small stuff first. Replace the thermostat. Before you do that, you should flush and refill your system with just water after the flush process. The bottle of solution that you put into your radiator to flush it and clean it has instructions, follow those. Then let the car cool down and drain the system and refill it with fresh water only. Run this water for a bit and then do it once more. Once cooled back down , replace thermostat and replace the 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water.
Check engine oil level as well, low oil will overheat engines quickly.

I have a 2000 dodge 1500 with a 318...started getting hot radiator , thermostat, and water pump was replaced and truck still gets hot any help?


you could have a sensor problem that needs replacing that controls the temp gage,if this isn`t the problem then you could have a head gasket starting to go bad.make sure there is nothing blocking the air flow in front of the rad.

Heater dont get hot its not heater core what els can i check


If you have a coolant temperature gage in the instrument cluster and it is running cool replace the thermostat. If you have an "idiot light" for temperature make sure the engine is hot and check the top radiator hose to be sure its hot.

95 toyota camery smells like overheating or oil burning even when engine is cold


Check radiator fluid level. Electric temp gages do not read temp unless there is water present, no water no hot temp reading.

My 04 dodge 1500 keeps over heating when i turn the ac on or when im going up hills "why"


under maximium load your cooling system is struggling asuming you have an automatic transmission,it is cooled through the radiator,when running the ac your condenser is hot,right in front of the radiator,if your not leaking,and your anti-freeze looks bright green an clean ,and the fan or fans are working ,first change the thermostat,cheapest,remove the serpintine belt and inspect the water pump pulley,spin it by hand,try to tip it forward and backward,to see if it wobbles,it should spin smooth and quiet,if it has a chattering or growling feel,or the pulley wobbles change the pump,the only thing left is the radiator ,make sure that debri or something isnt stuck in front of it a small piece of paper is enough to restrict airflow,inspect the core is it turning green and the fins are falling out ,is the plastic shroud intact around it, lots of things could be going on ,the transmission could be low on fluid,and running hot,causing the excessive load on the radiator,disregaurd this if you have a manual.need more info to pinpoint further,hope this helps

2004 Dodge 1500 4x4 with 4.7 V8 getting hot. Replaced therm, water pump and tested Radiator. Still gets hot very quick. The water is cycling thru block, but not coming back into overflow when getting hot....


Do you have anti freeze in it? did you replce the radiator cap? is the fan clutch good? is the AC condensor full of bugs and the radiator? are you low on transmisson fluid? or Motor oil? all these will cause it to get hot.
