Yes, put it back together and see if it comes off again. You may have over-charged your AC.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 jeep grand that the AC unit keeps

On this model I think there is a plate,with a rubber gasket under it,that can be replaced,if the is a plate,then there is a gasket,that you can replace to solve the problem,if there is not,then you will have to replace the compressor to fix the problem.

SOURCE: my 2006 jeep wrangler sport overheated wile driving and blew the bottom radiater hose off n shut down and wont start

What do you mean won't start? Grinding when you turn the key? Or just keeps turning over but wont start? Since its a newer car it might have detected the blown hose and the computer might have taken over. Try leaving the battery unplugged for about 10 minutes then plug it back in.

My 93toyota camery overheated cause of split n radiator replaced with new radiator but still blows water out of overflow think could b waterpump n sounds like missing could that b because of the water blew...

Possibly blew a head gasket allowing combustion gases to enter the cooling system and force coolant out of the overflow tank. This can be verified by doing a compression check on each cylinder.

On my way home from school my radiator hose busted and smoke was seeping through the cracks of my hood then i had the hose replaced and now my temp bars are all the way up and my car says ac-off what can...

It may have overheated before it blew the hose.
If the engine temp sensor is reading that the engine is hot, the computer will disable the ac since it produces even more heat for the engine.
You would need to find out if the engine is in fact running hot and why.
It could be a sticking thermostat, or the water pump, or the radiator cooling fans or other causes.

I have a 1988 Audi 90 the pressure builds up in the cooling system, twice it blew out the freeze plug in the head and this time it blew out all the coolant. any suggestions?

  • You have to make sure the plug is fitted properly. If it's popping out, it is not because of to much pressure, it's because of improper installation. I see it time and time again. Not cleaning the area and preparing the plug accordingly. rust, corrosion, improper installation all lead to the plugs popping out. If you paid take it to someone who will do it right. If this was a home job I suggest a complete Freeze Plug Installation Kit and clean the plug hole completely with sandpaper and see it fits permanently.

My car over heat. i have 1994 galant

first that you should check is the coolant level. It may have been caused by low coolant level. Next is the radiator fan if it is working. You can do that by removing the socket of the temperature sensor at the lower radiator hose towards the engine. The fan should turn on. If it does not it may be the relay or the fan. See if you can swap the AC fan relay (assuming the ac fan is running) and the radiator fan relay. If the fan does not turn on you may need to replace it or check the wiring. Check as well for leaks in the hose or the engine. You may just need to tighten the clamps on the hose or you may need to replace the water pump. Check as well the radiator cap as escaping steam from the system contribute to the increase in temperature.

The top radiator hose blew apart. after replacing and filling radiator back up engine runs ruff and guage is hot. radiator water is cold. What is wrong?

First place I'd look is at the thermostat. However, if the hose did not rupture in a normal manner and blew apart, I'd also suspect that you may have a blown head gasket. In that case, compression is entering the cooling system which is not designed to handle such high pressures, therefore causing the hose to explode). This will also result in rough running you observed.

1999 FORD ESCORT ZX2 radiator hoses swell and burst

you've got a serious overheating issue creating the pressure. Your temp gauge must be reading hot too.
If not, then you have engine compression pressure getting into the cooling system through a blown head gasket.
Replacing the cap will not help.

Also check to make sure that both the electric fans behind the radiator/condenser assembly are running with the A/C on. You can also improve the system performance by cleaning out the A/C condenser unit. It sits in front of the radiator. With the engine running and the A/C engaged, spray water from a garden hose through all the finning of the A/C condenser for 2-4 minutes. This will clear out any dead bugs and debris on the condenser or trapped between the condenser and the radiator. Cleaning the condenser every other month will greatly increase the life of your compressor.
