Make sure thermostat is in the right direction. put a new gasket. try a cleaner and fill radiator or have it rodded out along with maybe your heater core. drain and refill. put fresh oil in it now.

I have had brand new Thermostats that are bad. The way to check a thermostat is to boil it in water and see when it opens. You may need to have your radiator cleaned or roded out. You can also remove your thermostat and see what happens then I would start by flushing the system and see what you get.

I have a 02 Grand caravan that has new radiator, termostat, one new fan. the temp gauge goes up to max hot the drops right back down in seconds. what could be the problem?


it could be you have an air lock in the cooling system
remove the rad cap from the rad, start the engine and let it run until the coolant drops (add to fill it back up) or until the coolant boils out of the rad spout.

maybe pull the heat sensor. -replace it OR clean it off, reinstall it.

Overheating grande vitara 2008


I shouldn't be blocked because it is pretty new. The systems are usually good for 10 yrs or so before they start getting gunked up. I would think it is either the electric fan or the fan clutch (whichever you have) could be out and it isn't cooling the engine. Also, you could have air in the system which could cause the rest of the coolant to not circulate. Check for an air bleeder valve near the top of the engine, usually near the thermostat housing.

I have a suzuki grand vitara 2004 1.6 petrol and i have put a new thermostat on car and the temperature gauge is still rising when i run the car for aprox 1 hour and do 70 miles per hour, the fans are...


First check your fuses and relays for the fan. Next, you can run 12V directly from the battery to the fan, if it operates, you can eliminate a bad fan as a possibility of the cause and then test the fan's thermostat switch. If the radiator is sufficiently corroded it will also cause the symptoms you describe since part of the cooling surfaces will be effectively blocked off. The chance that the water pump is causing the problem is very slim. You can verify the pumps operation by starting the engine with the radiator cap off and allowing it to get up to operating temperature. When it's at operating temperature, you should see the coolant flowing through the radiator; it's the water pump that causes the flow through the radiator. If you see the coolant flowing, your pump should be fine.

Cabin Heat is Intermittent / Fluctuates / Cycles


You may have air trapped in the lines to or from the heater core.
If you (still) have a real radiator cap on the radiator, remove it with a cold engine, start and run the engine allowing it to warm up while watching the water/coolant level. Make sure the heater control is set to its highest heat setting while doing this. If it is trapped air, you may see it 'belch' after the engine is warm and the engine thermostat is open. Refill as needed if this is the case.
It's more difficult without direct radiator access and may require several cycles of hot/cold to allow refilling through the overflow.

Overheating


Did you get the cylinder head checked for cracks or warping. A simple check for cylinder head problems is. Take off the radiator cap start up the engine and check if the coolant blows out if it does then you have cylinder head problems. Next check is the system may be airlocked to check this start it up and leave it running until it heat's put your heater to hot and switch on the blower if it blows warm its ok if its cold or lukewarm then the system needs bleeding. If none of the above is the problem then you will need a new radiator. Thats the full check that all mecanic's carry out on a cooling system. Cheer's
