Last but not least,a weak water pump will not force the hot water from the thermostat housing area heater hose thru the heater core and suck it back thru the return heater hose.So if the car has high miles,think about the water pump and the tensioner,belt and idler pulley while you\'re at it. don-ohio (:^)

Check the vacuum lines to make sure they are correctly connected and in good shape. If they are not, then the system wont move the dampers to allow hot air into the heat vents. A second possibility is a clogged heater core, which is not allowing hot water to circulate through it. As you say the head has been replaced, I would have someone insure every thing was reconnected correctly. It could be the hoses to the heater core are reversed!

SOURCE: heater will not blow hot air. it blows cold air

The heater core is possibly blocked or the temperature adjuster is not working.

First check the controls to be certain that the temperature aduster is working and the flaps/doors that direct the flow of hot air are working.

If they are..........

Check heater hose temp. If one is hot and one is cold, you are not getting flow through the heater core.

Bleed it to remove an air blockage.
If that does not work, flush the system.
If that does not work, replace the heater core.

What can cause a 2.7 L 24 value to over heat when fans are working


several options
low water in the cooling system--check at radiator cap for full radiator
blocked radiator cores --have a flow test done by a radiator shop
corroded fins on the radiator cores --replace radiator
faulty thermostat---check thermostat operation /replace if necessary
air lock in cooling system---have the air bled out
have a compression test done to check for head gasket/cracked head

Car running hot


the water coming out of the front would be from the water pump, it also would be an indication that the pump is bad, which may have been the reason of why the car overheated in the first place.

My radiator hose popped off today iput it on and my car still over heats


You may have an air pocket with no fluid. This would cause over heating. If you have a recovery tank, it is better to add fluid thru there and not directly in radiator neck.

What would cause 2003 Kia Spectra to overheat after installing a new radiator


Universal Answer, probably an air bubble in the wrong spot - under the thermostat would be the worst outcome. Follow remove air bubble procedures, drill a hole in the thermostat so this cannot ever occur.

The quick fix. Unscrew radiator cap and leave off overnight - hopefully the radiator will 'burp'. Idle for a few mins with cap off. Then replace / cap on and see if this is fixed.

The pessimist. You recently bought this car secondhand. There is a gasket issue where exhaust gas is venting into the water gallery.
Fix will be head gasket repair gunk - but only as a last resort - if teh radiator guys detect c02/gas in the radiator fluid - they have a test kit for same

Loosiantng coolant from system cant see any leeks


What I'm afraid of is that you've blown a head gasket.... cracked a head... or maybe even cracked your block. This results in too much pressure building up in your cooling system and blowing out your coolant. First of all,though, let's look at the simple things first. Are the electric radiator cooling fan (fans) working?? When they don't work, it usually results in everything running okay as long as the car is kept moving, but overheats when car is sitting still. Check this out.. This is a fairly frequent problem. Also, if you've had an over-heat situation because of a fan not working, you could now also have a cracked head or block problem, caused by the excessive engine heat. I'm not familiar with the vehicle you drive, so I don't know if the cap you said you changed on the reservoir is a "pressure cap", or not. If it's not, then you would have a pressure cap on the top of the radiator that may be faulty... (Note: Don't remove a pressure cap while engine is still hot.) After that, check and see if there might be a build up of bugs at the front of your radiator that might restrict air-flow. Good luck...

engine thermostat is not mention the parts you changed, replace it.
consider the head cylinder gasket, it causes overheats.
a/c is another system, not a part of the system of first.

Physically look in the radiator under the cap for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, have it boiled out, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.

Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it

Dodge over heats


When you replaced the thermostat, did you bleed the air out of the coolant lines? When I replaced my thermostat on my old car forgot to bleed the lines out so it kept overheating until I did, then it worked fine. The air in the lines messes up the thermostat somehow and can cause it not to work like it should.

Over heating 1997 Kia Sportage


Does the radiator fan operate properly? The radiator fluid level (checked when the engine is cold) must be 'at the cap' with the reserve tank about half-full. Blow out the radiator core with compressed air (from the engine side) to clean it of bugs and other debris. Does the anti-freeze look green or rust brown? If rust colored, the entire cooling system needs to be drained, cleaned with system cleaner, and refilled again with a 50/50 fresh mixture of anti-freeze and water. If combustion gases are leaking into the cooling system through a bad gasket or warped cylinder head, that will cause overheating. Check the radiator cap for condition of it's seal. Occasionally, the water pump impeller will begin slipping on it's drive shaft causing limited water flow through the system. That is checked by reducing the level of fluid in the radiator to just above the core and temporarily removing the thermostat. You will observe water moving rapidly if the pump is working.
