Engine steam (over heating?) was coming out the hood of the car after I drove on the freeway for 20-25 min. I was in 5th gear most of the time and going b/w 80-90mph. Car at 139,000 miles. Radiator and...


Did they replace the thermostat? If not sounds like you should check that. Also anytime a engine is overheating it is serious. heat and friction kill engines. Make sure your coolant level and oil level are both good as well.
Thank you,

Puting vac hoses back on and carberater on a 1984


The engine and emission control system covered by this information operate on a combination of vacuum and electrical signals; they are extremely prone to malfunctions due to improper vacuum connections. If a component does not receive vacuum at the correct time, it cannot function when needed. When working under the hood, pay close attention to the routing and placement of every hose.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.

Thermostate ranges from overheating to just fine while driving.


is the fan working? if the fan isnt working it will overheat when idling, as it wont be sucking cold air through the radiator. a quick way to diagnose that your cooling system is fine is when stuck in traffic, turn your heaters onto hot, if the engine temp gauge shows that the engine is cooling down, the cooling system will be fine 9/10 times.

hope this helps.
