What do you mean your top hose to the radiator is not comming to it? Are you saying that the hose is cool to the touch and not circulating fluid? If so, you're thermostat is probably stuck shut and needs replaced.

I have a 1991 Ford Ranger 2.9,and I am having a heat problem I did change the thermostat but no heat yet,this is what I found so far. I checked top radiator and its hot,the bottom hose on radiator is cold....

ok in the engine compartment look at the radiator with the engine cold NOT ON" squeeze the hose with your fingers and feel if hose is crunchy or brittle if is possible a block could have happen locations /points at the vacuum heater valve gate on the heater hoses or a clogged up lower heater hose get a water hose and back flush the heater's hoses normal travel of water is from bottom to top so put the water hose to the tophose and flush backward and try to move the heater valve by finger and see if you get flow (mind you with hoses of the radiator DONT CRANK YOUR ENGINE)

Where is the thermastat located on a 89 ford tempo ?

After the car has been driven until warm,say 10 minutes,leave it
running and feel the hoses going thru the firewall to the heater,
there are 2 ,if they are both cold it needs a thermostat.
If one is hot and one is alot colder , it's the heater core.
If they are both hot it's a door on the inside.
Thermostat on the 2.3 (assuming) is at the engine end of the top
radiator hose,front of the head. Easy one

What causes a 1992 ford tempo to overheat

Check the lower hose that it does not collapse when hot.The wire spring inside the hose may have been crushed and water not flowing.Be sure there's always coolant to the level in the catchcan/reservoir and keepit at the mark/level,being it's been on the road this long,may need to backflush radiator by unhooking the lower hose from engine and hook a garden hose to the lower radiator hose and turn the hose on with engine running.When the thermostat closes from the cool water,it will slow down running from engine where lower hose connects meaning the thermostat is good.Otherwise,replace the thermostat.Takes a bit of work,but you know what's up with this procedure.Rigger.

Replacing the water pump hose on a 1992 ford tempo lx

There are 4 house that connect to the water pump on this vehicle Two come off the radiator and two that go to the heater core. The radiator hoses are larger and the heater hoses are smaller 5/8 to be exact. You have a 92 so all of the hoses must be feeling there age starthig to spilt and drying out. The trick is remove the clamp then gentle twist the hose with a large pair of pilers at the seal where its connected this will break the seal . Never try to yank the hose off dry. You can also cut an inch or so off the heater hoses if there bad at the connection point to save the hose .But hoses are cheap if it looks bad just buy new hoses its cheaper then a new engine

Lower radiator hose stays cold after running for hours

could be you fitted the thermostat in the wrong way around ,or the plastic impeller on the water pump with a steel drive shaft has failed they end up with the drive shaft spinning but the impeller is not turning ,go for the thermostat first though .

Check discoliration of oil and if present then blown head gaskit.
Thermostat ncould be stuck.
Blocked Radiator
Look for wet spots if car parked over night..could be leaking hose.

To check water pump remove thermostat ,seal and put thermostat cover back on and run engine with filler cap open.(make sure you fill water before running it)Water should circulat in the radiator,if not then faulty water pump

My car isn't heating up. the temp thing is at 1/4 or less. It was out of coolant, filled that, still not heating up.

if the tempo gauge never gets above 1/4 you probably have a thermostat stuck open. The thermostat is under the housing bolted to the top of the engine that the upper hose runs to.

Where is the thermostat located in a 1989 ford tempo

The thermostat is located on the front top of the engine. Just follow the upper radiator hose to the engine, the part where it connects, is the thermostat housing. Remove the housing to get to the thermostat.
Do not work on the cooling system when the engine is hot.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!
