If the cooling system has air in it, yes you have to bleed it. If there is no small fitting on top of the engine to allow air to escape, you have to run the engine with the radiator cap or filler tank cap loose until the thermostat opens, then add more coolant.
I wonder about air in the system if it did not run hot right after you installed the radiator. Is it possible you are leaking coolant somewhere, or burning it out the exhaust ?

Why my 2000 s/70 volvo temperture hand goes to hot when driving i change the radator now this my problem


Rodney, first thing I can think of, the coolant system has an air lock in it. when changing a radiator now a days, the coolant system has to be bled properly for a successful install. Other than bleeding for air, you may have a faulty plugged core radiator. You did plug your fans back in right. links below on how to bleed air from cooling system.

if no air in the system from internal heater or other places
new thermostat and radiator cap
good firm coolant hoses

old school air bleed
you fill coolant system with motor running
heater on in the car and thermostat open

burp the hoses until bubbles are no more

if still no better
what about these possibles
faulty coolant temp sender
head gasket failed
clogged radiator
cooling fans not spinning fast enough
or not coming on soon enough

Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot


disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

83 ford ranger no heat ,new heater core,thermostat,blower motor,runs at normal temps,noticed one heater hose very hot yet the other one which is ran into a metal line going to the engine or ekg valve is...


it sounds like you have a air blockage, or the cooling system needs flushed. to flush system go to ( autorepair.about.com/od/regularmaintenance/ss/coolant_f...) click on 3rd one down. remember to bleed air out of system, this works the best. turn heater and blower on high, start adding coolant. start car let it idle till radiator thermostat opens. when top radiator hose gets hot you should have heat. some vehicles have a bleeder to let air from system. when filling putting coolant in system. if it does, then open bleeder while engine running and putting in coolant untill there are no air bubbles coming out. have a good day !! when doing flush if need be. you can go to any auto parts store and buy radiator flush. follow directions on the back ( prestone is best )

Just had thermostat replaced. After 5 days of use:


You may have air trapped in the system. Take it back where they changed the thermostat and have them bleed the system. If you want to DIY post back.

Just replaced radiator, but temp. gauge is rising to the red line


preform a pressurized collant flush , take it to a raidior shop to have it done , they will clean and blow out all blockages that might cause your car to over heat. also check to make sure you dont have air pockets in your anit freeze, if you do you need to bleed the system out after you have it flushed , your car should have a blead valve to let out the axcess air ,if not drive it down the road with the cooaint overflow cap off , not the radiator but you need to flush out the system first , add new anti freeze then bleed out all air pockets, hope this helps
