Take the cap off your rediator, start the engine. The air should slowly bubble out, as the air comes out of the system, the Rad fluid will drop. As it is dropping keep topping up your rad fluid. It may also help to squuze the rad hose this will also help to get the air out of the system faster as well.

My 96 Isuzu rodeo is overheating replaced radiator cap and thermostat and radiator is hot by top hose and cool on the rest what could b problem

Hi Eric

This sounds to me like the cooling system has an airlock OR the 'stat has been put in backwards. Try running the engine for a short while with the rad cap tightened down to the first stop only and see if that allows the airlock condition to be alleviated.

Hope this helps you out.

How to replace radiator lower hose 1995 jeep sport

First make sure engine is cold, grab a container big enough to hold about 3 to 4 gallon and about 2ft high , you want something that will fit under the truck. remove the cover from under the front under radiator area. now you will be able to see the hose, most older jeeps no longer have this cover, it may have fallen of or broke off , so if it not there no problem one less part to remove, next is to locate the hose going to the waterpump, loosen the clamp and slide down, use a pry bar or by hand remove from wtarepump, coolant will spill out so use container to catch, if you want you can draain radiator frist, theres a petcock on the driverside of radiator at the bottom just unscrew it and let it drain out then remove hose, when drianing remove the rad cap to allow better flow. with lower part of hose off next follow hose to other end on radiator and remove the clamp and twist and pull offf, reverse directions to install. with hose on fill rad and resivor and start engine and top off then install cap run until it reaches operating temp then shut engine off and let cool, when cool remove the cap and start engine and top off again if needed, good luck.

2000 Darango with a 360 engine. Car was running ok. We busted a top radiator hose. I replaced the hose and filled with water, now the car runs hot. Any ideas?

Did you run the heater while re-filling the coolant? Quite often that is forgotten and causes an airlock in system. Remove rad cap when cool, then start engine, turn on heater ( not defrost) and add coolant as necessary until engine reaches operating temperature, and you see coolant flow through rad 2 or 3 times to be sure all air is out. Keep topping it up as you go if needed. With electric fan for rad cool, I usually wait for fan to come on, then off 2 or 3 times, which tells me the coolant has circulated through system each time, and all air should be out now. Top up return bottle to proper level, and you'll probably be o.k. now.

Temp gauge goes high. Radiator leak just the

It could well be a faulty thermostat- test or replace same.
Could also be a blocked radiator core, - check coolant or airflow is not restricted,
Ensure any radiator leaks are repaired,
Ensure coolant level is correct, without airlocks - bleed as necessary on re-fill,
Check operation of cooling fan - ensure fan runs at appropriate engine temperature - if not check sensor switch and associated relay operation.
Thermostat is located at the end of top radiator hose where it connects to engine housing.

Replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998

Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.

take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.

All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.

If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.

remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.

reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.

That is the basics of it.

98 runner cooling issues

You probably have airlock in the cooling system.

Not sure about the 4 runner's cooling system, but if there is airlock I usually take the coolant back out, take the thermostat back out, fill the engine block from this hole with 50/50 coolant, reinstall the thermostat, upper hose, fill the radiator and tank, then run the vehicle with the heater on max (rad cap off) and then fill the rad as the rest of the air comes out.
