Sounds like your water pump is bad and leaking, causing it to run hot.It is recommended to get a new timing belt when replacing water pump,these prices are without timing belt change.For the dealer's price is 555.00,for repair shop is 428.00,and for you to do it is 72.00,take door number 3.

SOURCE: Engine keeps running hot, it has antifreeze and

There must be one of four problems:
1. The thermostat is blocked in closed position. To check that, verify if the engine and radiator have the same temperature. If the radiator is cool than the engine, then is the thyermostat. So, replace it.
2. The thermocontact is not working. To check that, observe the electric fan is it's starting when the engine is hot. If not, try to shortcircuit the wires wich are comming to it and switch the key in the running position but not start the engine. If the fan starts the thermocontact is broken.
3. The fan motor is broken. Check that as above. If the fan not starts then is broken.
4. The radiator is clog. If all the above tests are ok then the radiator is clog.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus that would not heat, took to shop they flushed the system, replaced the water pump and it ran hot after thet flushed the system took it back they flushed the system again and


Did you have red antifreeze prior to the flushing? Ford engines are generally aluminium and should be using blue antifreeze which is suitable for aluminium engine blocks! I think the antifreeze is reacting to the aluminium.....re flush and use blue!

2004 dodge durango keeps running hot..i keep adding coolant then it stop for couple of days then start running hot again


If yo keep adding then you're obviously losing antifreeze somewhere. If it's not dropping on the ground then I'd say you have a blown head gasket and it's going out the exhaust. If you keep running it hot and it is a blown head gasket, sooner or later you'll warp the head or crack it, then you'll really be outting out the money for a fix.

I accidently put antifreeze instead of oil in engine


Drain it IMMEDIATELY!!! It could remove all of the protection your engine uses to keep it from wearing out. Be prepared to spend alot of money on oil to flush out the antifreeze! Also get a few oil filters! The first wash is CRITICAL....After you have let the engine drain OVERNIGHT, leaving the old filter off, Put back the drain plug and mount the new filter, and add the new oil. Run the engine until it is at operating temperature. Turn it off...drain it while HOT and pull the filter while hot (Use Gloves to keep from burning yourself). Let it drain overnight again. Repeat the process above running the car for 24 hours, then for 3 days, then for 1 week. After that last drain, you should be ready to see what damage was caused...hopefully not much if you didn't drive it too far...

Coolant system


If your coolant level is dropping, I would suggest that you take a good look at the water pump. That is a very common coolant leakage probelm area on your vehicle. I change 2-3 a week.
Hope this helps.
