Get some rubber/latex gloves (you are going to want to use these) and about a gallon of anti-freeze/water mix.  Remove your radiator-cap.  Then locate the lowest coolant hose on the radiator and squeeze it.  You need to do this a lot.  As you do this you will hear the radiator "BURP".  "Burp" the radiator for about 5 min the check the fluid level add more then repeat until there is more nose. Then do this to the upper radiator hose.  This process will take about and hour so be don't rush it.

I have a 02 Grand caravan that has new radiator, termostat, one new fan. the temp gauge goes up to max hot the drops right back down in seconds. what could be the problem?


it could be you have an air lock in the cooling system
remove the rad cap from the rad, start the engine and let it run until the coolant drops (add to fill it back up) or until the coolant boils out of the rad spout.

maybe pull the heat sensor. -replace it OR clean it off, reinstall it.

Why do I have only Intermittent heat with new thermostat?


Sounds like an air pocket in the coolant system. Those can be a pain, some cars have bleed valves to help. If there is an air pocket, it will seem to be full of coolant, but when the air pocket gets to the heater core it gets stuck there and guess what? No heat, because you won't get any heat unless hot coolant is in the heater core. Old fashioned way is to open the system and keep pouring coolant in at operating temp with heat on full until all the air is pushed out. If it has a bleed valve that can be helpful. Have seen this problem on many vehicles.

Water temp goes up and down


sounds like you may need a new thermostat and bleed air from cooling system properly, If after you replace this and problem still there, air may be getting in cooling system through damaged intake gasket, or head gasket. this make and model is known to have intake gasket problems

2001 ford escort zx2 has no heat. Blower OK, AC fine. I did notice the temp guage fluctuates quite a bit. When I select full hot, will get warm (NOT hot) air for about 30 sec. then it blows cold. Could...


It is much more likely you are low on coolant or you have an air bubble trapped in the cooling system. You should bleed the cooling system to get any trapped air out and make sure it is full of coolant.

I can't find the thermostat location on a 2005 chevy uplander? I need to replace it and have the part but can't find it in the engine bay. Took both coolant hoses off no luck.


the thermostat is under the throttle body
remove the air box and the throttle body
remove the top thermostat bolt
the bottom thermostat bolt remove 95% the hole is slotted
replace thr t-stat and reassemble
IMPORTANT
if you have anLX9 engine there will be air bleed scews
if you have an LZ9 it will not have air bleed screws
ok if you have bleed screws open both then fill the rad wait till a STEADY STREAM of coolant is coming out then close bleed screws
start the vehicle put your heater on HOT and VENT AND BLOWER ON HIGH
run vehicle till u get HOT NOT WARM AIR coming out of vents this will insure you have no air in the cooling system

now if you have no bleeders
then fill the rad then install the rad cap
start the engine run engine 2,000-2,500 RPM till the temp. gauge reads about normal about half way
then let the vehicle idle for 3 min
then shut the vehicle off and cool down so the rad cap can be removed
SAFELY
top up coolant
also make sure there is good hot air coming out of the heater if not repeat procedure there is still air in the cooling system
hope you found this helpfull

98 FORD EXPLORER HEATS UP


If your guessing the thermostat, I think your guessing right. Easy job to replace it, use a fail safe thermostat next time to avoid this problem in the future. Good luck.

The heater in my 95 ford V8 fairmont has stopped working!?!


You haven't totally filled the cooling system.  Heater on hot, raise the front of car adding coolant until all the bubbles are removed from the coolant system.  This bleeds the total cooling system

1990 Subaru Liberty Overheats


Hi,

I had the same problem with my 1993 Liberty LX. Remove the thermostat (located inside bottom radiator hose engine connection - take the connection off and thermostat is inside). Reassemble (minus thermostat), reconnect bottom hose. Slowly (very, very slowly) refill the radiator and remove the bleed plug ( located beside the top hose connection to the radiator - a black square plug with a phillips head cross in the middle). When the radiator is full and clear water (no air bubbles) is coming out of the bleed point, replace the bleed plug and then the radiator cap.

Run the engine for five minutes (approx) or until normal engine temperature is reached. Allow the engine to cool down and recheck the water level - fill if necessary ensuring that the bleed plug is open and clear water is coming out of that point. Replace Bleed plug and then radiator cap. Run engine for five minutes (approx) and then test dive. If the engine overheats keep filling the radiator until there are no air bubbles coming from out of the bleed point.

This fixed my overheating problem. Good luck and safe motoring.
