Unlike its a clogged radiator... first make sure your fan is turning on, and make sure your thermostat is opening

While driving my 1998 Mercury Sable with the heat on. It will start out with really warm heat and then 40 seconds later it willstart to cool down. If I turn off the heat and wait wait a minute it will


This sounds like a classic problem with the heater core. The heater core is like a small radiator that is located under the dash (likely). If the vehicle hasn't been maintained properly with regard to the coolant, the heater core can become clogged over time and need to be replaced. Years ago, there was also a problem with mixing the green and red coolant. This caused the fluid to gel especially in the smaller passages of the radiator and the heater core. Did you install an in-line port when you flushed the system? A little household water pressure flowing thru the system might help blow the clog out. Other than that, replacing the heater core Will likely solve the problem. Good luck!

Overheating


if it overheats while driving you water pump or radiator as the likely the culprit. however i would replace the radiator first. it dissapates heat. if it is clogged or fins are gone it can not cool off the rising temps of an engine working harder. it has to be able to have airflow thorough it.

98 v6 mustang is over heating its not the thermostate or fan


Several things ... best guess, in order:
1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner.
When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing,
the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40).
2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch
($7).
3. Radiator clog (possible)
Hope this helps!

Overheated truck


Your radiator is getting clogged up with mud causing the lack of air flow through the radiator. You may want to install a mud deflector in front of your radiator to keep the mud from clogging up the radiator and may be run your antifreeze ratio 40/60 (antifreeze/water) the higher the water content the better the heat transfer, but your have to keep an eye on the level of the coolant level more often. Water will evaporate quicker but too muck antifreeze will have poor heat transfer and 100% antifreeze will gel when heated causing poor circulation causing overheating. Good luck and hope this helps.
