SOURCE: slow leak in radiator or overflow heat blowing cold when stopped

It sounds to me as though you have a thermostat valve problem in the cooling fluid cicuit. The test is to remove it, let it get to room temp. and then place in a cup of boiling hot water. It should open. If it does not, replace. They are fairly inexpensive 5-10$. If you do not know were it is follow the top hose of the rad to the engine block it will be in the housing that the hose clamps to at the block. Caution!!!! when you remove that thermo stat housing you will drip coolant. Catch it in a pail or similar. If you miss the pail, hose down the driveway or whatever because it tastes great to pets but is deadly. ( Ethylene Glycol ).

Buick idle at 1700 dies when putting it in reverse


Manifoild air leak causing engine to idle too fast. Check for air hose leaks. Some are palstic mated with rubber hose sections. Both can crack and leak.

If engine stalls when stopped at light, torque converter may not be unlocking.

Where is the radiator cap to add stop leak


Lift the hood. In the upper right hand corner is the overflow fill tank. If you want to put it in fast reach down the right side of the radiator(when it's cool) unscrew the small plastic petcock and drain a gallon or two of antifreeze into clean pan. Replace petcock. Open the cap on tank and add stop leak. Fill back up with antifreeze. Now would be a good time to change it. Go to Napa and buy the original antifreeze the car came with Zerex G5. Mix 50/50 with distilled water.Fill to just above cold line and start engine keep adding mixture till it won't go down any more. Replace cap and watch level for two or three days of driving add mixture after engine is cold12_2_2011_3_42_50_pm.gif

Heater in my 2002 jeep wont get hot unless going down the road and I have water in the floor on the pasenger side.


Sounds like you have a leak at the heater core and lack of heat usually means low water level in radiator. When engine is cold ,add some radiator "stop leak" top up the radiator, start the jeep but leave the cap off until the water is hot and you are sure radiator is full. Then tighten cap and drive or idle for about half hour or more. When you can afford it change out the heater core.

Small hole in bottom of radiator drips


There are products out there like stop leak that MIGHT stop the radiator leak. However... the only real repair is either to have it soldered (if the end caps are not plastic) or replace the radiator all together.

Adding a product like "Stop Leak" most often starts to introduce other problems to your vehicle like a future water pump seal failure or clogs in the smaller water passages in the engine block, heads and manifolds and the thermostat heater bypass hole. Anyone that has ever done any major engine repairs will know immediately if stop leak was used in a cooling system.

The best fix is to replace the radiator.

Many radiators today can not be repaired

Stop leak is in most any auto parts store. Just be advised of what you can expect down the road.

specifically

1. warmer than usual engine operating temps
2. water pump seal failure
3. heatrer core clog (no heat)
4. passenger heat control temp valve clog (no heat)
The choice is yours. Personally I would not do the "Stop Leak" treatment attempt. Sometimes it works other times it does not.

Water pump would never do that. pump either works or doesn't. You should have no heat 'till the engine is warmed up. Engine heats the water. If it was doing this before you changed the thermostat then the old one may have been bad. However, at this point, Id be looking to see if you have it installed with the spring end towards the engine, if the electric fans are coming on and if the radiator is internally obstructed and not flowing properly. You need to re-fill the system with the heat on full hot and the fill cap off to ensure that air purges from the system. If equipped with air bleeds, use them as well. One trick I use to prevent air binding is to warm up the engine to the point that the temperature is just below where it normally runs at. Turn the engine off and wait about three minutes for the stat to open and then begin filling slowly till it's full.(running) Used to be you could check radiator flow by putting your hand on it in different spots when hot. Cold spots would be where flow is restricted. Today radiators are not easily reached but most good shops use a heat sensing gun to check this. If your radiator fills through a cap on the radiator if you need to dribble coolant in or it backs up, that is a good indication that the radiator is obstructed as well (providing t stat is working.)

Wont start now water leaks steadt stream


It is a very bad idea to put cold water in a over heated engine. If you must first start the car and add the water slowly. This will allow the water to mix in with the hot water and not shock the block. But the best thing to do is let the engine cool before adding water. If you add cold water to a hot engine with the engine off and than start it the cold water will pass into the block and could cause the iron to contact unevenly and crack. Good luck.

Heating problem


Could be a few things. First of all check the coolant level ( when the engine is cold ) If this is OK it's possible that the heater matrix is partially blocked & is only transferring the heat when there is a high flow of coolant or the plastic impeller on the inside of the water pump is loose and isn't circulating the coolant around the engine properly. Hope this helps & good luck !
