SOURCE: same problem with over heating

Whoa!!! Would I ck the water pump drive belt or the water pump itself, or the temp sending unit first? YES, I would. I would even check to see if there is possibly a combustion leak into the cooking system. Easyto do. Make sure your cookant recovery hose going into the recovery tank has its tip/end submerged in coolant and watch for bubbles. Bubbles are a no no and mean a leaking head gasket. Now that is a problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

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.

SOURCE: had a blown top radiator hose, replaced it now engine stays hot, why?

check your thermostat or try run your motor with the thermostat removed.If heating up persists your might have a blown head gasket or maybe you just need to bleed the cooling system of air bubbles

How do i change the radiator fluid?


Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

Ok here is my question i have heater hose that is leaking and we know for sure its on top and its a 1999 pontiac montana before it blew we heard like a whining noise that we heard each time the van...


Easy fix. find where each end of the blown hose is attached and remove the hose. Go to the auto parts store with the old hose and they will give you a new one the same length and also two new clamps. ( I would actually replace both heater hose at the same time because the other one has the potential of doing the same thing). Replace the new hose in the reverse process you took the old one off. Make sure the clamps are tight. Open the radiator and fill radiator with water/coolant to the top. Should be good to go.

How do i change the thermostat on the four cylinder


If your talking that radiator Thermostat, trace the upper radiator line back to the motor. Where it mounts is actually an adapter plate that is bolted on with 2 to 3 bolts. Remove the Hose, Remove the Adapter from the motor and you should see the Thermostat under that adapter. Toss the old one and insert the new one. Clean the old seal off and put the new seal in place ind mount the adapter, tighten down, reconnect hose fill radiator and test drive for a block of 2 and then check for leaks. If you have any leaks at the adapter tighten the bolts a little more and top off the radiator.

How do i change the radiator hose?


BUY YOUR RADIATOR HOSES FIRST MAKE SURE NEW HOSES MATCH THE OLD HOSES. BUY NEW RADIATOR CLAMPS AND HAVE EXTRA GALLON OF ANTIFREEZE. MAKE SURE ENGINE IS COOL IF YOU GOING TO CHANGE TOP RADIATOR HOSE REMOVE RADIATOR CAP OR OVER FLOW JUG CAP IF YOUR RADIATOR DONT HAVE RADIATOR CAP FIND RADIATOR DRAIN PLUG.PLACE A CATCH PAN.OPEN RADIATOR DRAIN PLUG CATCH ANTIFREEZE. DRAIN HALF ANTIFEEZE IF YOU GOING TO REPLACE TOP HOSE AND DRAIN OUT ALL ANTIFREEZE IF YOU GOING TO CHANGE LOWER COOLANT HOSE TO WATER PUMP.WHEN DONE CLOSE DRAIN PLUG.PUT ANTIFREEZE IN A SAFE PLACE FROM PETS AND KIDS UNTIL JOB DONE. WHEN YOU REMOVE COOLANT REMOVE WATER HOSE CLAMPS THEN REMOVE RADIATOR HOSES PUT NEW RADIATOR HOSES AND CLAMPS ON HOSES TIGHTEN HOSE CLAMPS DONT OVER TIGHTEN. POUR ANTIFREEZE IN RADIATOR.CRANK ENGINE UP CHECK FOR LEAKS.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL WHEN THERMOSTAT OPENS ADD MORE COOLANT AS NEEDED.

1999 FORD ESCORT ZX2 radiator hoses swell and burst


you've got a serious overheating issue creating the pressure. Your temp gauge must be reading hot too.
If not, then you have engine compression pressure getting into the cooling system through a blown head gasket.
Replacing the cap will not help.

1995 legacy 250t wagon - overheating


Two possiblities; a blown head gasket, or a freeze plug leaking. If possible take it to a trusted shop and have the pressure checked on the radiator, they can tell you if your radiator is stopped up, or the freeze plug is leaking, and if it's blowing back in the radiator when you remove the cap then it's a blown head gasket.

1996 Volvo 850 overheating


Is there any oil in the water or mayonnaise under the oil filler cap? If so, I'm afraid you probably have a blown head gasket. The hole being blown in a hose is symptomatic of that I'm afraid. As I've posted elsewhere, if it's a T5 then it's much, much easier to get a secondhand engine & change it over rather than change the gasket (in any case, it can turn out to be a damaged head rather than/as well as the gasket).

If not then check the water pump itself.

To check the radiator, disconnect the top & bottom hoses; connect a garden hose to the bottom hose (gaffer tape is your friend :) and turn on the tap. Pretty obviously, if water doesn't gush from the top outlet, you have a blockage - try more water pressure (not a pressure washer!), you may clear it :)
