I seriously doubt you have a 6 cyl radiator. the hoses are different andthe radiator is way smaller than for the 7.3- there is supposed to be an additive for the 7.3 coolant, you can get it at your local ford shop, other than that i would say check your heatercore, or t-stat

The coolant light active on the dashboard, even after changing tha coolant and flushing the radiati


ensure that the radiator is full to that radiator cap. Check that the wiring to the coolant level sensor is intact as it needs a complete circuit through the unit and coolant to operate correctly.

Sludge in cooling system


Leaking head gaskets can and do cause this, the combustion gases are very corrosive and rusts the heck out of the cast iron.

Was told I may have valve pressure problem


Not holding coolant by that I guess you mean the water is escaping to the reasevoir in which case replace the radiator cap with the correct pressure cap recommended for you car. I would have a coolant system pressure test done to ensure that ther is not a more serious problem with the engine causing the radiator to over pressurise

Getting gas smells and misfiring on a 2000 chevy venture. what might be the problem? was told not running on 2 of the 6 cylinders could that be the only problem? i am being told its something else


first off you have to fix the misfire problem before you can do anything else,as a misfire will cause a fuel smell because you have 2 cylinders acting like a raw fuel pump ,by the fuel entering the cylinder not burning a being pumped out unburned.so you have to find out why it is your six cylinder car is only running on 4 cylinders and repair the problem.then you can go from there if you have to,also you will have to change the oil as it will have fuel in the oil which thins out the oil to a point it does not do it`s job and could ignite in the oil pan causing other problems

Honda civic 2004 changed radiator,thermostat control,changed cylinder head with machine shop, new fan...still temp rises beyond half..mechanic told me to fix engine block and machine shop again cylinder...


the gauge is going above half, but is it actually over heating? could be a faulty coolant temp sensor sending an incorrect temperature. when you changed the radiator, was the rad cap also changed? if the cap is not holding correct pressure, it will lower the boiling temp of the coolant and cause it to overheat. an infra red thermometer is very useful for diagnosing this, point it at the thermostat housing and see what the temp is there, that will tell you whether the temp gauge is accurate or not. good luck!

not only did the problem switch cylinders, it switched banks. cylinders 5&6 are on the drivers side and 4 is on the passenger side. i would recheck all wires to make sure you have the correctly installed.

I have a 2003 ford escape 6 cylinder. I was just told that cylinders 1 and 3 are not firing, and that it is probably the coil. what else could it be?


unfortunately these coils do go bad I had a bad one on the #1 cylinder. I bought a set of six "good low miles" used ones. I changed all six- two were bad. My truck runs great now and I have a couple of spares for later on

2000 jetta overheating. changed thermostat and that wasn't the problem. i was told my water pump was out


I doubt that the water pump would be faulty:- go through this checklist first. I assume motor tune or other mechanical condition is not causing the problem.
When engine running, ensure no engine combustion gas bubbles in coolant resevoir (if so, the head gasket is blown).

Check radiator cooling fans are operating ok (as required when car warms up) - if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on suction side of waterpump when engine revs above idle.
Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary,
Check radiator cooling core is not blocked internally or externally.
