Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
When engine over heats the water hoses from radiator to engine look as though they are going to bust. Could it be the thermostat or water pump. How do you check for this.
Sounds like your thermostat, without letting the fluid run through the engine, that particular hose is building pressure. Also check your radiator. If you remove the hoses from the top and bottom, shouldn't be but a hose clamp on each. Take your ordinary garden hose, and stick it in the top, and make sure water is flowing out the bottom. Make sure this is done safe. Get yourself 2 gallons of premix fluid, and before you take the hoses off, make sure you either take out the drain screw, or have a good drain pan available to catch the anitfreeze when it comes out. Don't want to hurt the poor animals.
