Top half or Radiator is hot while the bottom half remains cold . Is this normal


This can be due to one of a few different things...First of all, water flows from the engine to the bottom of the radiator, using the water pump and gravity, and the water returns from the radiator back into the engine on the top side.

Thermostat isn't opening...this causes the water / antifreeze to remain in the engine, and not flow through to the radiator. If the water / antifreeze gets hot enough, it should activate the thermostat and water should flow into the radiator through the bottom radiator hose.

The bottom radiator hose is either worn out (there is a spring inside the length of the bottom hose. it is there to keep the hose from collapsing under the suction pressure during normal use) If the hose feels spongy, soft, or shows signs of cracking, replace it.

The radiator may be clogged, preventing the water from flowing freely through all of the 'fins' in the grill section of the radiator. Hot water usually isn't just in the top section during a clogged radiator situation...

Radiator overheating


if all hoses are ok and there are no leaks have a look at the thermostat most anti freeze is already mixed so you can just put it in any way and what was said above wouldent make it over heat has it just started doing this or is it an ongoing thing are you getting back presure when filling make sure engine is not hot pref first thing in the morning when the radiator is full squeeze the top rad pipes to get any are out of the system then start the car dont rev just let it tick over the water pump will move the water around the engine keep an eye on the level and top up again untill it stops needing any any exess fluid will come out of the over flow pipe or back into return bottle if it still over heats get the thermostat checked is the car running fine or is there any other problems apart from this as there are a few more things that can make it over heat timeing sticking valves etc hope this helps ivan

OVERHEATING ( SOMETIMES)1996 460 RUNS HOT ON TRIP 200 + MILES LOST NO FLUID --NEXT DAY EVERYTHING OK--DROVE 3000MILES OVER 3 WEEKS NOTHING HAPPENED. PARKED FOR APROX 1 AND HALF MONTHS-RUNS HOT--CHANGED...


Possible fan clutch..Usually if its a fan clutch it will run hot sitting still but cool off once going down the road..If it takes a while to run hott then i would suspect a clogged radiator..When you drain it did it look like all the antifreeze came out..Ive seen half the radiater clogged up where half of it drained but the clogged section stay in the radiator

Before! My car ran hot when I turned on a/c. At one time I was running 50/50 antifreeze. I changed the thermostat, and mechanic friend said take radiator top off run car for 15min to get water out of...


Never ever put undiluted coolant/antifreeze in your vehicle. It is to thick and will cause even more overheating and other problems as well. One fan should run almost the instant you turn the A/C on.
The other fan is controled by coolant temperature. You should check the fan relays, fuse's and coolant temperature sensors for proper operation. Also clean the condensor and radiator fins with a good stream of water from a garden hose, not high pressure water at a car wash. The water pump may be worn out as well.

My heater blows cold air when car is stopped. i have installed a new water pump and the radiator is full of water.


you still have air trapped in the cooling system. Get front of car as high up as you can on a hill. Cold engine - loosen radiator cap, fill with 50/50 antifreeze mix. Start engine and run until upper radiator hose is hot (thermostat open). Engine should burp air and maybe spill some coolant, that's ok. Once burped, tighten cap, shut off engine and let it cool down while keeping the reservoir full. It will **** coolant out of reservoir as it cools. Keep it full.

If still cold air, take to a shop that has evac/fill equipment; they will **** air out and repalce with coolant. About $80.

Replaced water pump and termastate, car still over heats....is there some kind of in-line valve for the coolant


When you put thermostat in did you put spring side towards the engine? Did you get the air pockets out? Do both upper and lower radiator hoses get hot? If both radiator hoses get hot then you got out the air pockets. Does the cooling fan kick on? Is the air deflector still on the car. The next step is to check for blown head gasket. Get the engine hot make sure both radiator hoses are hot and antifreeze is filled to the top hold rpms around 20 to 25 grand and watch for air bubbles. If there is air bubbles and the antifreeze doesn't go down that a good chance of head gasket. I the antifreeze goes down that just air pockets coming out. If you not sure or want to double check after making sure your system is fuel of antifreeze and let engine get cold. Then start car and run 20 to 25 hundred rpms and watch for air bubbles. This sometimes is easier because you're not dealing with that hot antifreeze. They also make what they call a block tester if you want to spend more money. They work but I'm not that thrilled about them. The best way is with an exhaust analyzer also known as emission machine to test for HC in the cooling system. Just be very careful if antifreeze goes up the probe it will damage the machine. If you run through all this checks you should find what is causing the problem. Opps I forgot the temp gauge and or temp light may not be right but if your also steaming it's not them.

I have a 98' ford contour that keeps overheating i have replaced the water pump and thermostat and belched the coolant system but it still overheats. when i turn on the a/c the radiator fans work, and it...


Check the radiator itself by feeling the radiator while hot, being careful not to burn yourself feel from the top to the bottom while going side to side, it should be hot at the top and generally cooler as you go down with out any cold spots, if you have a cold spot the radiator is plugged and will need to be cleaned or replaced, also make sure that the radiator fan runs with engine temperature, not just when you turn on the a/c. If this all checks well, look at the exhaust pipe, if you have antifreeze in the radiator see if there is white smoke coming out the tailpipe when engine is hot, if so the cylinder head gasket may be blown out. Hope this helps, let me know.
