Check water pump and make sure that its working. Should be circulating antifreeze in radiator and in engine. You can also check and the head gasket and make sure its NOT blown. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Look for bleeder valves either on thermostat housing or around water pump. Start up open valves when you get a steady stream of coolant and no air bubbles close valves, and that should be it. Now if there is no valves, open radiator cap to first natch and run engine but stay back and watch temp. it should burp the air out that way, if it don't just shut off engine and leave cap loose, and let set over night as it cools it should burp the air out along with some coolant. If that don't cure your problem you may have to look a little deeper, like water pump or head gasget.

The bottom hose will not contain an air pocket. Check your water pump. When the engine is cold, take off the radiator cap and start the engine. When the engine temperature indicator shows normal operating temperature, you should be able to see the coolant moving through the radiator. If not, the water pump is not working. Could be a missing belt, could be a bad pump.

Coolant isn't circulating in the engine of a Jeep 2002 Grand Cherokee V8. Radiator was just replaced as well as the water pump and thermostat.


Hi Jonny, While the engine is cold the thermostat will be closed, allowing coolant circulation around the engine block and cylinder head but not through the radiator. Only when the engine has reached normal operating temperature will circulation be noted in the radiator. A good test is to remove the thermostat while the engine is cold , start the engine with the radiator pressure cap removed and observe flow. If as I suspect it is there, refit the thermostat and check the heat gauge. If all remains well there is no problem. If the engine overheats replace another thermostat. If there is no circulation with the thermostat removed, there is a blockage in the cooling galleries of the engine. If chemical flushing does not clear it, it will require disassembly of the engine with careful step by step inspection at every stage. If the cylinder head(s) had been removed I would suggest making sure of the galleries not being blocked by installing the gaskets incorrectly. Regards John

Engine was overheating need to know if a tube is supposed to go from the radiator to the engine coolant


you should have one upper radiator hose, one lower radiator hose, a small diameter hose that runs over the top of your radiator starting from the radiator cap going left across the top and then to your coolant reservoir and another from your thermostat housing to the firewall for the heater core the upper radiator hose should also go to your thermostat housing. the lower radiator hose goes to your water pump This hose routing is only for a 4 liter straight 6 I'm not sure about the V8 or the 2.5 liter motors

Where is the thermostat located on the 2002 Pontiac grand Am?


I am guessing you have the 2.2 liter engine, because GM did a pretty good job of hiding the thermostat on that engine. The upper radiator hose attaches to the radiator at one end, and the other end attaches to a large pipe which bolts to the back of the intake manifold. The thermostat is between the intake manifold and that pipe assembly. It may not be an easy job replacing it, and the correct thermostat may be hard to get at the average parts store.

My 96 jeep cherokee overheats in 3-5 minutes.It is a 4 liter, 4 wheel drive.


Is there is the correct amount, type and mixture (50/50) of Radiator-Coolant Fluid in the Radiator? If so: then it is either the Thermostat that is failing or a bad Water Pump. I would definitely change out the Thermostat first as theat is less expensive than the Water Pump. It is easy to do and yes you can do it!

Your engine is a heat pump. The amount of power it makes is directly related to how much heat you can produce (energy). The limiting factor is component failure from heat and pressure. Using a lower temperature thermostat would cause a loss of power...additionally your computer system is calibrated for higher expected temps and will not function correctly with a lower temp thermostat.
Conversely, cooling down intake air and fuel will add power...The colder the air and fuel, the denser the charge...more fuel & air =more power...but there is a trade-off in fuel mileage!

follow top radiator hose from radiator to engine wear hose ends, it will be clamped to whats called the gooseneck, thermostat is under that. you will have to drain coolant, not all, maybe 1 half gal. before you remove it. 2 bolts new gasget new thermostat, just remember spring on new thermostat goes in engine.

1996 chevy corsica 2.2 liter engine. Coolant temp never reaches above one-quarter hot, therefore no heat. I've put in four thermostats, installed new radiator, disconnected the cooling fan, still no heat....


You may have a stopped-up heater core. It's a little radiator inside your dash; it's where the heat comes from. I don't understand why the temp gauge isn't reading any higher than that...

Thermostat


Hi,
Folow the large hose from the top of the radiator to the engine block. There should be a housing held on with 2 bolts. The thermostat element is inside this.
Note which way around it is fitted, as the bulb part has to be on the engine side to work correctly.
Easy way is to drain 1/2 of coolant from the plug under the radiator into a clean bowl.
Undo top hose, Replace stat, do up hose again, then refill through the expansion bottle. If it won't take it all due to an airlock, run engine a short while, then try to refill again.

Often new stats come with a new gasket - use it with a very thin smear of sealant, and grease the bolt threads before replacing - don't overtighten - they're only small bolts.
