Water pump is boiling on a 1999 CADILLAC DEVILLE but car drives okay vibrates a little


water pumps do not boil but engine coolant systems do from lack of water . Water pumps leak and get bad bearings but the heat comes from blocked radiators-blown head gaskets--cracked heads --fans not working and the vibration is from pistons and rings trying to bind up in the cylinders from over heat situation

Radiator cap overflow do they go bad


do they go bad, that part is easy,
entropy happens , throughout the universe.
cars, x10000 (a mechanic is born, for this task)

my guess, is the car is boiling over, right?
post all symptoms and what size engine.

if boiling over.
try a new cap, on the radiator.
the overflow tank is for normal AF coolant expansion.
and the reverse actions. cooling and contraction.

over heating has only 2 causes, in the macro.
engine makes too much heat.
cooling system failures.
the mechanic has tools and tests that find out which one it is.
if not a hand on person, take it to any ASE rated shop.

Antifreeze boiling over when car is overheatind and Wen its not overheating changed thermostat radiator bled and flushed it changed temperature switch no oil and water mixture No smoke


Check the over flow tank located in front of the passenger side glove box for water or fluid. When driving the car, listen by the glove box to see if you car hear a boiling sound. If you can hear water boiling or moving, check your heater core to make sure it is not plugged or bad. When the car starts to over heat, does the gauge register that it is getting hot? If it doesn't then check the thermostat to make sure it is not stuck open or closed. If its over heating and the gauge is not showing that the car is running hot before boiling over, then the thermostat is defective or not working. Try replacing it again.

Is the car actually heating up?Does the radiator boil?Have you looked at the temperature sending unit giving a bad temp.reading.?The thermostat needs looking at and also the head gasket.Hope this helps

My 2002 buick century is loosing coolant fast. When car isn't running around 60-70 mph is seems to heat up more than normal and no heat or ac will occur. Should I replace the thermostat? I noticed the fan...


it sounds like one of several problems radiator needs flushed , water pump is bad or going, thermostat is bad, pin hole in one of the hoses, cracked head, hole in radiator, hole in heater core.if core is leaking you will notice water on the floor inside the car on pasenger side. if radiator has hole when you fill radiator with coolant it will leak froom fins sometimes only when hot. thermostat bad your car will read hot and or cold always. if stuck open cold, if stuck closed hot, after about 15 20 mins of running engine will cause radiator to boil over to over flow tank.never open radiator cap when engine is hot :) burn hazard.if pump is bad or going will notice gauge reads hot intermittent or always. will boil in to overflow tank. if head is cracked will notice water comming from side of engine block or in oil when you change oil. if radiator needs to be flushed will notice scale or gunk on radiator cap
(if you think you need help or do not have tools to perform please take to a machanic)

Why does my 2000 malibu over heat i repcled thermostat .waterpump,fans. radiator does notleak plus cold air comes out when tempature gage is on heat we tried bleeding lines, also sounds like agurgling...


A lot of the time the core in the radiator are partly pluged. The radiator needs boiled out or replace the radiator. One other item that can cause problems is old hoses. The bottom hose could be collapasing under pressure and the radiator cap could be at the wrong pressure setting.

Hello I have a toyota mr2 86 and the coolant is boiling inside of the overflow container and there is small coolant drip from radiator in front of car. In need of suggestions


I guarantee you, the water is not boiling in the reservoir. There is no heat source there, and even if it came out of the radiator boiling, by the time the coolant traveled down the hose to the tank, it would have lost too much heat to boil.

But if steam is coming out of your radiator into that tank, it would look like it was boiling.

It sounds like you have a radiator leak, and that you are therefore low on coolant, and the engine is overheating. With the car stone cold, open the radiator cap and top off the coolant as full as you possibly can, then replace the cap. While you have the cap in your hand, inspect the rubber gasket that seals it when it is installed. If that gasket is not in good shape, the normal operating pressure will force coolant into the radiator excessively, leaving not enough to cool the engine.

After a short drive that is sufficient to reach operating temperature plus about 5 or 10 minutes, and then allowing the car to fully cool, open the radiator to see if it is still full. It should have developed no substantial amount of space above the coolant surface, it should still be full.

If there is space, perhaps there was some vapor trapped somewhere, so try one more time. But if you are developing space in the radiator, you have a leak.

Well my car allways over heats and coolent leeks out of the radiator cap its not the thermostat. What can I do


If it is leaking out of the radiator cap, then that means you need a new radiator cap. Your cooling system in your car is a sealed system. Sounds like your radiator cap is not sealing properly and when the cooling system is not longer sealed then the temperatures cause the coolant to boil whereas coolant not subject to the atmosphere does not boil. Start there.

Good Luck
