Is there an air bleeder valve near or on the thermostat housing? Crack it open to see if air escapes.
Usually to remove air from cooling system, you keep the radiator cap off after filling, start the engine and wait until the thermostat opens and the car has reached normal operating temperature, then shut off engine, top up the radiator and the overflow tank, replace the rad. cap. Try that to see if you can get all the air out. If still overheating, do check the fans. Then could have the coolant system pressure tested for keeping pressure in the system and no leaks.

I'm dealing with a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 3.7 litre V6. I just replaced a leaking radiator and thermostat and the car still runs hot. The fan is working and I see no leaks. What's next? Tell...


The rise in engine temp after replacing the radiator and thermostat could possibly be caused by air pockets trapped in the cooling system. You will need to run the engine with the radiator cap off and let the air escape. DO THIS only when the engine is cold, and let it build up to temp. Coolant will over flow during this process, but eventually coolant will need to be added once the air is released.

Why does my 2003 jaguar s type keeps overheating after I replaced the thermostat. I took i to the dealer and they told me everything checked out ok but told me to replace thermostat.


These cars are terrible for holding air pockets once the cooling system has been drained.
Run the heater on max and let the car cool, top off the coolant, and repeat the process several times. Also make sure the electric fan assy is functioning. There is a module on the side of the fan assy which occasionally fails. if the fan is working then you probably have air pockets in the cooling system.

I have a 1999 Porsche 911 it overheats on side street but not on the freeway. All radiator fan works including engine fan. Any suggestion?


air pockets develop over time and what most people do not realise is that the cooling system of the car loses water through damp over time. when there is not enough water in the cooling system it pushes air through which rapidly heats up. on the highway higher speeds cool things down. but lower speeds not. open the waterbottle cap when the car is totally cooled off. not hot. never when its hot. this will create more air pockets in the cooling system. open the bottle cap and fill it up full. start the engine and add water. if you car has an aircon switch it on to full. this will push air pocket out off your cooling system. as bubbles blow out keep on filling water until cooling system is bled. good luck

02 Infiniti I-35 3.5 heater air not hot enough...had system flushed and new themostat..vents and blower motor working fine.


Make sure that the radiator fan is going off like it is suppose too. Also, some vehicles have a shut off on the water inlet hose to by-pass the heater core for the A/C when it is running in the summer. This could be malfunctioning.

Honda civic 1998 over heating. cooling fan problem? Where are the fuses for that. Thank you


Most likely you have a bad thermostat is stuck and not letting coolant to flow to your radiator. check your coolant level if is normal replace the thermostat NOTE: if you live air pockets on your cooling system then also cause to over head when adding new coolant open the bleeder valve if you cant find it just add coolant whit the engine running when the new thermostat open will release the air pocket and you will see a sudden drop of you coolant level, then add more on till the radiator is full again. never drive your car for long is your engine is over heating that will cause a blown head gasket and mayor repairs. if your on the street and just notice than your car is over heating turn your A/C off set it on heating maximum fan max heat and of coarse roll down all your windows. it be real hot for you but that will save your engine. the heater core on your car is like a baby radiator and bypass the engine thermostat that will help to cooled down a lot . hope this help you and good luck.

Overheating and no hot air from heater.


Leave rad cap off when starting from cold, turn heater(not defrost) on, and top up coolant in rad as you go, to about an inch or 2 from top of rad. Let engine run with cap off until your rad fan comes on & off 3 or 4 times. Every once in a while, rev engine slightly for 5-10 seconds to help bleed air out faster. After about 3 or 4th time fan comes on, you should be o.k. to put cap back on all the way & fill bottle to proper level. Heat should be there now. Give it a try & let me know how it goes.
