Dan how do I bleed 2004 Kia coolant car temp is good but sometime at idle heater starts to blow cool hit throttle gets great heat


I agree with your logic. Attached vid addresses bleeding. Sounds like at low rpms, not enough flow to transfer the heat. So bubble or maybe a partially obstructed core. There are a couple of vids on clearing a core... GOod luck, let us know if you figure it out.

MY 1994 LINCOLN TOWN CAR IS OVER HEATING I REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT AND THE WATER PUMP AND THE COOLANT IS STILL NOT CIRCULATING CAUSING AN OVER HEATING PROBLEM WHAT CAN CAUSE THIS OVER HEATING?


clogged radiator. Pull off upper hose and run water through it via hose and see if it flows out bottom of radiator. If flow is good, try flushing engine like this and see if it is blocked. Also, make sure you have it full of fluid and if you can, bleed air out of it.

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.

1991 overheating Towncar


If car heats up quickly and overheats , the problem is the thermostat. The thermostat stays closed and traps coolant in the engine untill it reaches about 185 degrees , than the thermostat opens and allows coolant to flow to the radiator where it is cooled by airflow. ( airflow while driving is usually sufficient ) while idling , or in slow trafic , the fan keeps air moving through the rad. The heater core is strictly for heat in the winter inside the car. The thermostat is the most likely cause of the problem , and even if it was good before , the overheat / boil situation likely cooked it anyways. I am assuming the water pump is still getting turned by a belt. No water circulation by pump would cause same symptom as bad thermostat. Overflow and expansion bottles are designed several different ways on different cars , but the theory is that as the engine heats up and the coolant expands , it goes to the tank. Later , as engine cools down after being shut off , coolant contracts. Radiator is replenished by coolant returning from expansion bottle.
