Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Rad hose issue. Did u put the new thermostat in right? Did you install the right temp stat? Is ur water pump working. Is the rad clogged. Fins clean and straight. No kinks in any of the hoses is tje expansion tank hose good to go. Rad cap function ok?. As for the stalling this could be the cp controlling this as its reading over heat. So if it reads over heat it shuts the fuel pump. N stuff off this killing the car saving u an eng. Fix the issues first then maybe it will run better. Also is the fan blades facing the right way if u removed them? Hope this helps.

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.

I recommend flushing the radiator thoroughly if not done recently. there seems to be some sort of blockage in the radiator at this time. if you get lots of metal fragments that are flushed out during this flush, i will then recommend a rebuild on the radiator or replacement of the radiator. make sure the cooling fans are cycling on time as well.

Most likely it is running too ritch. should be around 7%. Mine did ecactly the same thing and I had several things done . Had the throttle body cleaned and installed a O2 senser.runs great now.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: wont keep idle, car stalls out
I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.
