Don't mess with it. Buy a new radiator, flush the engine good, get rid of the rust, Only a radiator shop might be able to clean your radiator up enough, but a new radiator is not that expensive. You'll have one less worry. Don't try to be frugal with the cooling system-your engine will love you !

2002 Durango overheating at low speed

If your coolant looks OK (not rusty) then it's most likely the water pump. Now if the coolant looks rusty then you need to get the radiator cleaned out.

1999 oldsmobil silhoutte sound like it boils when idling and cooling fluid looks a rusty color

Both--but you have to find out what problems
the motor has & make those repairs first,don't
use it if it overheated, even once,park it & work on it

Rusty in color-that's neglect & no preventative maintenance,
unless you just bought it, in which case you lay it up for a couple
weeks & go thru it

The car sat for awhile it needed new air shocks & brake cylinders. The car now is overheating alot. We put a new radiator last winter. Do you think it's the thermostat? the water that comes out is...

Since the water is a "rusty" color, the best advice I can give is to flush out the entire cooling system. It would also be a good idea to replace the thermostat. If you need any further help, please feel free to ask.

My sisters olds alero is overheating. What is the

Take a heater hose off and start it up, it should push it out, a lot, like 10psi pressure. Is the cooling system clean? not rusty?Does the heater blow hot air when the engine is hot, if so thats good. when the cooling fan comes on, is the air coming through the radiator should be. if not, the radiator may be stopped up. if the top and lower hoses are hot, but the air coming through the radiator is cool, the radiator is plugged, and will need to be taken apart and cleaned by a radiator shop, or better yet, replaced.

1991 Lincoln Town car overheating

The year of the vehicle, rusty liquid, and overheating, says your radiator could use a replacement. If it was your water pump, you would have liquid coming out of the water pump itself.

1993 chevy camero- thick, rusty colored residue in radiator

The rust is probably in the engine. There are many little pockets, water ways, water jackets (around the cylinders), etc, so getting all the rust out without dunking the block and heads in a cleaning tank is about imposible. I would recommend giving it really good flush every 4 to 6 months. I would try flushing the radiator before replacing it because it is probably not rusted, even though it is full of gunk.

1995 legacy 250t wagon - overheating

Two possiblities; a blown head gasket, or a freeze plug leaking. If possible take it to a trusted shop and have the pressure checked on the radiator, they can tell you if your radiator is stopped up, or the freeze plug is leaking, and if it's blowing back in the radiator when you remove the cap then it's a blown head gasket.
