My x585 overheating if I hose down the radiator it cools down but I don't know why it keeps overheating.

if its overheating but staying cool at radiator then its more likely to be a failed thermostat, the thermostat should open up to let more water though to cool engine down, if it becomes faulty it does not open so there is inadequate flow and courses on over heat. and weak part is the header tank, it can also cause rubber pipes to pop or split. and blow the head gasket, so don't drive until thermostat is checked and changed, air in system should be released but the header tank it has a valve fitted to let off steam,

Where is a C200 air lock located in the engine

I doubt there is one specific place. You need to remove the air from the system by allowing it to escape from the twists and turns of the system hoses. Most vehicles have a small bleed point or 2 at a high spot where you can let out the air. Trace the water system and loosen a hose at a high point. Run at idle. Don't fit the rad cap at this stage and only run when cool or cold. If you look in the header tank you can usually see a return flow of water. When the flow is steady run the engine long enough for the thermostat to start opening and be ready to top up the header tank. The level may fall suddenly when the air is pushed out of the heater system back to the tank. When the heater blower is pushing warm air check the tank level and fit the rad cap. Go for a run up to operating temp, come home, allow to cool until rad cap is safe to release, check level and top up if necc. Don't run the system at all without anti freeze to the correct percentage, usually 30% at least, or summer coolant mix if in the lower states.

Putting in the antifreeze

remove header tank cap undo drain plug at bottom of radiator and bleed screw at top of radiator once all coolant has drained retighten tthe drain plug pour the new coolant into the header tank waiting for the coolant to drain through system and watch for coolant to come out of the bleed screw , shut bleed screw top up the header tank to the max level replace cap.Now run engine ,dont drive just stay with revs at 1500 open bleed screw to let any trapped air out and wait for the cooling fan to cut in , allow engine to cool down and refill header tank if required and repeat the running/bleeding/fancutting in procedure until when engine has cooled the coolant is near the max mark on header tank

Missing an air hose that goes from the air breather to ? what is it called?

if its about as big as your little finger in diameter it may be but if its an inch or larger its a manifold heat tube that comes up from the exhaust shroud on the header pipe which is used to preheat air on really cool days.. its usually around a foot long and flexible(bendable) and made from store sells by the foot if needbe..its like an exhaust patch..they will know when you tell what car it is..(normally)

How do I by pass the egr on a 90 2.3 ranger its the one with 8 spark plugs I up headed my header to a ****** header super comp after my stock one cracked theres no hook up for the egr on the manifold ...

The purpose of the EGR is to add a little inert waste exhaust gas back into the intake fuel/air intake charge to cool the combustion. High combustion temperatures cause environmentally challenging oxides of nitrogen to form plus they can burn out the exhaust valves and seats. One way to stop off the EGR is simply to put a metal blanking plate across the ports on the underside of the EGR valve. You can use the gasket as a template to trace the shape. Without EGR you may want to look at running a slightly richer (8 to 10%) mix to keep things running a bit cooler.

My car vaporlocked its abot 100 degrees ouside. how do i fix the problem

Sometimes this happens when a heat shield is missing from a Catalytic Converter or muffler. If you have made modifications like engine changes or installed Headers you need to have some additional protection for the fuel system. If you restore missing shields it will help.

There are aftermarket products like Thermal mats to repeal heat or exhaust wraps which can reduce heat from an exhaust header. Some people have made fuel coils to place over A/C dryers and use the A/C to cool the fuel. It works, but really is rerouting the fuel line.

Old school tricks like attaching Wooden clothespins with spring clips directly on the fuelline,and putting fuel lines inside old A/C finned tubing are 2 ideas. They increase surface area and dissipate heat.

If the Air temp is 100 degrees the pavement is probably 130.

Heater blows air-not warm-when on heat; warm air comes when set on MAX (AC). where is the vaccuum tube for heater?

look on the passenger side for a small hose that runs from the inake manifold or throdle body to the firewall above the heater.

Jag s type 2001 the water header tank burted en toute and due to coolant the engine management systemreduced engine power until i stopped uppon cooling down i filled with lookwarm water and limped home...

Sometimes this bleed method is not enough.
Bleed air out of the very top water hoses on the engine (when cold!) whilst filling. Then run the engine for a short time, check tank level again and if required refill when cool enough to be safe, repeat this if water level drops in tank again. When water level in header tank stays constant run the car up to full temp. and see if problem is fixed. Then check level again when cool.

good luck. Hope this helps.

Eng light on

Also - check the vacuum hoses under the battery for corrosion.

P0410 indicates an A.I.R. system malfunction per the title of your post. Specifically it means the PCM determined the heated O2 sensors voltages did not respond within the allotted time. They have to fall below 222 mV in < 1.3 seconds on both banks during closed loop operation. Or the short term fuel trim did not change more than a predetermined amount.

The above will cause the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) to come on. If after 3 consecutive ignition cycles where the diagnostic runs and passes it will go out.

Possible causes:

-Low system air flow
-Excessive exhaust system back pressure
-Moisture, water or debris ingested into the AIR pump
-Pinched, kinked, heat damaged, or deteriorated hoses or vacuum lines
-Restrictions in the pump inlet, duct, or filter

The car will run fine with the system inoperative. It only runs during startup to help the CATs light off faster. It does this by injecting air into the exhaust.

The pump is located inside the front fascia on the drivers side. You'll find its intake connected to the engines air intake. It's a small squarish box. The plumbing goes into each header. (The small tubes that come off the headers) There are also two check valves the prevent exhaust gasses from entering the AIR system plumbing. They are located next to those connections on the headers where the AIR plumbing attaches. If one of them goes bad you will get a P1415 or P1416 code. (Fairly common with aftermarket headers).

How to replace a 2005 pontiac sunfire thermostat

Should be in a housing just at the motor end of the upper radiator hose. Trace the upper hose down under the alternator.

Pull the hose off (be sure you have a way to catch the coolant first!) Then you unbolt the thermostat bolts and pull out the thermostat. REMEMBER which way it goes---the part with the "nose" points toward the radiator. Then clean both surfaces of the housing really good, and put on a new thermostat gasket. You can seal it with some light white grease, but just enough to make the gasket stick. Don't use goopy silicone sealant! Tighten the bolts but don't go crazy. Just enough to strain the muscles in your arm using a 3/8 drive wrench. Do NOT put your back into it. NICE and SNUG. Now you have to fill up the plastic reservoir tank. Then you run the engine for for just 30 seconds or so, then shut it off. Now you have to find the BLEED SCREWS and open them up so as to let air out of the cooling system. Then close the air bleeds. Repeat this filling up and running the engine briefly until coolant comes out of the air bleeds. Then top off the reservoir tank.

I think one air bleed is by the pipe where you put in the oil. Once you find it, look for another one like it. Sorry I don't have a manual for your car.
