Sounds to me like one or more of your hoses is detioration from the inside out. they are getting weak and collapsing as it gets hotter. replace them before it clogs your radiator

2001 kia sportage is over heating but has no leaks. the radiator has been flushed but is very rusty inside. The water is rusty inside the radiator. We have checked the resevoir, it is fine. the water...


Rusty is from running a bad or no mix of coolant. (PH level is off) You may have a water pump that has corroded impellers, and can't move the coolant as well any more. I would start by making sure to flush the engine block again, and make sure you flush water through every possible hose, and where you can get at it.

KIA IS STILL OVERHEATING,


The thermostat is the engine temp controller. All the sensors do is relay information.

Are you sure your over heating. Has anyone infrared temp tested the actual temperature.

If you are really overheating a temp gun can test differnnt areas to try to find a blockage somewhere.

You could have a clogged radiator if you used a sealer in the coolant pryor to doing the head gasket.

I have a 1997 kia overheating i have removed the thermostat


You have to install a new Thermostat because if the motor has no water pump thermostat sends all the coolant to the radiator and therefore the engine never warmed and you will not have heat because the coolant never be heated

Getting warmer,maybe just not flowing correctly?bubbles quick in az! not bad yet!!


while your car is running and, warmed up; squeeze the top radiator hose; if you feel coolant flowing your thermostat is open and your waterpump is working if your waterpump fails it usually drips coolant out of a "weep" hole on to the ground first.

Overheating


the situation you describe is an air pocket. you need to raise the front of the vehicle turn the heat on full blast. open the radiator cap, while cold of course, and add coolant until you see not more air bubbles coming out of the filler neck.
