If the water is cold, then that indicates that there is no ciculation through the engine. If the thermastat is new, it is not likely to be the problem (don't rule it out though). Which makes me think you might have some blockage somewhere, I would try flushing the cooling system to make sure you have good circulation throughout.

Both heater hoses to front heater coil are cold coolant level full new thermostat


there could be an air lock in either lines, you will have to loosen off a line at the rear heater and bleed the air out.

run the car with the radiator cap off or the expansion tank cap off, which is part of coolant system and is pressurized, not to be confused with an overflow bottle which is not pressurized, and the heater on high. drain some coolant to allow for expansion. look/listen for bubbles. air from the vents should get hot. give it about 20 minutes

Heater not blowing hot air


air in the system. or dirty blocked radiator and heater cores. put a radiator flush in it. run it for 20 miles then drain it. refill with 50/50 mix of antifreeze .now bleed it. this is done by turn your heater on full.with the expansion bottle cap off .run the engine till water getting hot . with finger and thumb push in the hose to push air out of the radiator hose into the expansion bottle .then refit the cap.

Water flowing out of radiator when idling 93 nissan terrano v6 petrol auto trans


If the coolant was hot when you noticed water coming out the radiator, that is normal from the heat expansion of the coolant. That is why there are coolant overflow tanks-also called coolant expansion tanks.
When refilling coolant, always top up the radiator, and fill the overflow tank to at least the cold mark level (about half-way up on the tank). With cap off, run engine till the thermostat opens- upper radiator hose will become hot-then shut off engine, add coolant to radiator as needed, replace cap. This method of filling will help to expel any trapped air in the system. Oh, and remember to set your heater controls on high when filling coolant, so the heater core and lines also circulate and expel air.
Check the seal on the radiator cap that it is still good. The cap seal is important to seal the coolant system, as it is a closed system under about 15 psi of pressure. The reason to pressurize the system is that the pressure will raise the boiling point of the coolant by about 10 degrees- important when you consider how hot the coolant has to be when running. OK, enough tutorial-I don't think you have a problem with the water pump! G'd luck, reeve.

Hello i have a 1994 gmc 6,5 diesel turbo and under load is overheating i replace fan clutch, thermostat and when remove the water pump the driver side of the block was dry any idea


Sounds like it might be blowing gases into the water jacket. Blown head gasket?
I would fill system up, start engine with rad cap closed. Rev up COLD engine and then check the upper rad hose for pressure. Squeeze it. If it seems to have pressure already, its likely head gasket. Put a towel over rad cap and take it off slowly, listen for pressure release while still cold engine. (Bad sign) Then wait for it to warm up and themostat to open, rev the engine and look for bubbles in the flow of coolant which burst with a little puff of steam or smoke. If neither of these happens, that is a good sign of not being head gasket. But it may be occuring only at high pressure, "under load". Dont know how much load that means..
Good luck
PS. I'm not really an expert here, (turbo diesels) just general knowlege.

look on top of the thermostat housing or anywhere in the system that sits up high as it has to be a high point to bleed off any trapped air. usually there is a small relief valve that you unscrew until fluid runs out. sometimes youmust do this several times to get the job done.

1991 overheating Towncar


If car heats up quickly and overheats , the problem is the thermostat. The thermostat stays closed and traps coolant in the engine untill it reaches about 185 degrees , than the thermostat opens and allows coolant to flow to the radiator where it is cooled by airflow. ( airflow while driving is usually sufficient ) while idling , or in slow trafic , the fan keeps air moving through the rad. The heater core is strictly for heat in the winter inside the car. The thermostat is the most likely cause of the problem , and even if it was good before , the overheat / boil situation likely cooked it anyways. I am assuming the water pump is still getting turned by a belt. No water circulation by pump would cause same symptom as bad thermostat. Overflow and expansion bottles are designed several different ways on different cars , but the theory is that as the engine heats up and the coolant expands , it goes to the tank. Later , as engine cools down after being shut off , coolant contracts. Radiator is replenished by coolant returning from expansion bottle.
