You have replaced the upper rad hose. Was this done because of a leak? Was it replaced because overheating was occuring? If overheating is a problem you may have to look at some other things.1 Cooling fan 2 Thermostat 3 Head gasket

May need thermostat, plus you probably didn't bleed the system. have to run car with rad cap open to let air out then add as water goes down, be careful water will still boil over.

My chevy Venture van still overheating after radiator replaced, temp gauge replaced and fans fixed. WHY?


You may have air trapped in the cooling system. This will cause overheating. When you fill the system, there is a small brass air purge valve above the coolant pump and another on the thermostat housing. These need to be loosened and trapped air released when filling the cooling system.

Overheating


Most common reason for overheating is 1. low coolent lvl 2. faulty thermostat (stuck closed). 3. Faulty water pump preventing coolent from circulating through engine.

Check coolent lvl in radiator when engine is cool by removing the cap and filling it up till you can see the coolent, replace cap and try. If you have the proper lvl of coolent. Replace your thermostat, which is located under the thermostat housing (right underneith where your top radiator hose connects). Fill with coolent and see if that helps. Next test is to start the car and let it run till it gets to normal operating temp or near (180 to 220 degrees F) Pinch your upper radiator hose and see if you can feel a gush, or flow of water rush through the hose when you release your pinch hold on the hose, (by pinch, I mean to try and totally squeeze the hose together) If you don't feel the rush of coolent through the hose, then your waterpump is faulty. If your car quits overheating, but your heater hoses don't get hot, then they are probably stopped up at the point where they connect to the engine. Its a common area for gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up.

Overheating after replacing thermostat


If it over heated before the thermostat, replace the radiator cap. Make sure the coolant (recommend just water until this is fixed) is full. When disconnecting the upper hose you lose all the coolant from the engine and about 1/3 of the coolant in the radiator. If you only full the radiator you don't have enough water. The new remonstrate needs to open for you to get enough water. In short- take radiator cap off. Start the engine. Fill radiator. Watch level for 5min, filling as needed.

1992 Jeep Cheroke Limited overheating my upper radiator hose burst yesterday morning. replaced the hose added coolant still overheating. removed the thermostat started it and it is still overheating and...


replace the cap , its allowing the system to over pressurize, also, you could have an air bubble thats moving around in the system, always make sure that you fill the radiator to just cover the radiator fins inside, this allows a place for expansion to happen. what you need to do is BURP your system, leave the cap off and start the vehicle, ( before doing this step,, make sure that you've replaced the thermostat, spring towards the motor , it only works one way!! ) once you see the fluid inside the radiator moving, it means the thermostat has opened, and your fluid level should drop down, slowly add more until the fins are just covered, and wait for it to close and recycle one more time, refill again, that should purge the system of unwanted air,, replace the cap, and fill the over flow tank to the lower level line,, and you should be set

I replaced the water pump and thermostat in my sons 1998 Jeep. It has a 4.0L and the water pump out let hose back into the radiator sits several inches higher than the radiator. This is causing a air lock....


4.0 engines aren't really prone to air locks. Keep the heater on high while re-filling. If you have an overheating problem and you can't get the radiator to fill fast enough, likely the radiator core is internally blocked. When that happens it seems that the upper hose can't be purged of air. Jeep radiators are in my opinion too small for the engine and if partially blocked, have no "leeway" or forgiveness. They just will not fill correctly.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

1995 legacy 250t wagon - overheating


Two possiblities; a blown head gasket, or a freeze plug leaking. If possible take it to a trusted shop and have the pressure checked on the radiator, they can tell you if your radiator is stopped up, or the freeze plug is leaking, and if it's blowing back in the radiator when you remove the cap then it's a blown head gasket.
