Car blows out cold air but steam out the bottle


I would install a new thermostat. The only way to check a thermostat is to heat it up in a pot of water on the stove and make sure it opens and closes. Make sure it's in the right way, and make sure the radiator is full. You may have to loosen a heater hose to get the air out of the system. I usually let them warm up with the cap off to make sure it's all "burped" out. Once you have everything full if it still overheats, you may have a water pump problem. Squeeze your rad hose right shut if you can. When you release it, you should feel a gush of coolant go through it. If you don't, your water pump may be no good, and will have to be replaced.

I have a 1991 corsica and was wanting to change the coolant can you tell me where the drain plug is.


Many cars don't have a drain plug, and even if there was one, I wouldn't touch it, because they often break or strip out. Simply remove the lower rad hose from the radiator, and let the coolant drain out. Then, leaving the hose disconnected, remove the heater hose leading to the engine at the engine intake manifold end. Shove a garden hose into the end of the heater hose, and flush thoroughly with water until the stuff running out of the lower rad hose runs clear. Then, reconnect both hoses, and slowly pour in a gallon of pure coolant (not 50/50), as it will mix with the water left in the engine block. When the rad is full or nearly full, start vehicle and, leaving rad cap off, allow it to reach operating temp (upper rad hose will get hot, and coolant level in rad will drop). With engine idling, (important!) VERY SLOWLY pour the rest of the coolant in, and any additional coolant mixed 50/50 with water, until the rad is full. Cap it, and then fill the overflow bottle to the FULL HOT mark, or close to the top if no mark is found. You're done!

How to i flush a radiator on a 2000 expedition and what tools do i need?


you need, knife/ gear clamp,screwdriver /nut driver (for gear clamp) and garden hose
with water pressure hook up hot water is better
you can buy a can or to of rad flush but dishwasher soap works good (it wont suds up )
also rad flush kit with garden hose addapter (most kit are compatable)
1-drain existing coolant in container for recycling
2-locate heater return hose to block and cut to installed flush kit addapter
always better to reveres flussh system with engine off and rad cap removed
drain valve closed hook up garden hose and run hot tap water true system
it will eventually cove out your rad cap (surge tank) until it runs clear
know sut off the garden hose add your cleaning additives installed rad filler cap
run engine per direction on can or 10 to 15 min. sut off engine removed filler cap
open drain valve on radiator and drain out system open water from garden hose
run water until clean water run true shut off garden hose and removed cap off with
cap supplied with kit let system drain completly . repeat cleaning operation until
water runs clear
add 1 jug of concentrated coolant (will mix with ressidual water and finish filling
system with premix used recomended coolant only for your engine your freeze
point of new coolant should be above spec and will be fine
do not used pure concentrated coolant only .your ownners manual spec section will
give capacities system will hold

Yes it is normal just no hot air


1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

Whenever i park the car water leaks out of the tiny hole under the rad cap ! Why ?


In the cooling system of the car,there is a fair amount of water.When it gets hot it expands.It will half fill the overflow bottle.If you top up the water too far,it will flow out the hose,or hole as you said.This is normal.If it flows out a lot,and you have to refill the bottle very often,this is something that needs looking at.But a small amount is normal only once or twice after topping up.Just make sure is not the aircon,drain.I hope this helps

Strange Coolant leak


this most likely means that you have a leak in a hose somewhere between your engine and the radiator, when you open up the rad cap it lets the leak breath causing it to gush out, go to napa and buy a replacement radiator hose it shouldn't cost but a few dollars and that should fix your problem.

My 1986 plymouth turismo runs hot and overheats


You say it gets hot and overheats, are you losing coolant when it overheats? If it isn't boiling over, you seemed to cover everything that could be wrong, the fan is working, if it is not boiling over, just registering hot on the gauge, I wonder if it's just a temp. sending unit that's bad, indicating a overheating problem when there really isn't one. The water pump is bad when the shaft bearings go bad, and it will leak at that point. So, let me know if the car is actually boiling over (steam visible, exiting the cooling system)

Water pump


Put a drain pan under the radiator drain pet ****.Drain the rad COLD. Loosen,but do net remove the four waterpump pulley bolts.Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the water pump pulley now. Put the drain pan on the floor under the water pump. Take off the bypass hose if equipped.Undo the bolts securing the water pump. Make sure you remove ALL the bolts.With a soft hammer tap the front of the pump until it separates from the block. Remember too much force means that a bolt is likely still installed. Once the pump is off remove all traces of gasket from the block.Go to the parts store and purchase the new pump. It is a good idea to take the old one too just in case they need to compare it ,or, there is a core charge on the old unit. You will get ir back right away if you have it with you. Get a small tube of contact cement as well and use it lightly to secure the gasket to the water pump.This will hold the gasket to the pump and make sure the gasket come off with the pump if you ever change it again.Reverse the procedure to install it.Close the rad petcock. Refill the coolant ,with new, making sure the air bleeder is loosend. Fill up rad until you get no more air from the bleeder.After that, put the drain pan under the rad and run the car. Let the coolant expand and push out the remaining air.Once the car is up to temperature fill the rad and put the rad cap on. Fill the bottle to the normal level and recheck it the next day and add as necessary.
