Sometimes because of lack of maintenance to the cooling system this occurs. I don't know the exact type of cap on your vehicle but, usually the cap on a radiator is removed in two steps. The first is to unlock it which is what I'm about to explain. We professionals have a tool for this but, I suspect you do not. If you're handy, and I mean no disrespect but you have to have a certain touch with tools, use a pair of slip joint pliers to turn the cap while and not before pressing down and retaining pressure on it. Do not try to turn the cap without applying downward pressure. You may have a great deal of resistance but do not squeeze the cap too tightly as you will break the neck of the radiator.

SOURCE: My 2001 Chevy Venture temperature gage goes to

You did a good job covering it all. The only next possibility is the gauge itself and/or or wiring going to or from it.

I have a chevy venture ,year 2000, the problem is ,the tempure gage goes all the way to hot and the cooling fans does not comes on, i am thinking that the termastat mabe bad. how can u help ?


Check you radiator fluid level. If it is below the fan temp sensor- it won't work. Look inside the rad and see if it is clean. You can remove the thermostat and plunge it briefly into hot water and watch it open/ then in to the freezer and watch it close.

Also check your engine oil for signs of coolant in there (headgasket) and check the over flow tank see if it looks blown out or it's cap is missing.(signs of real trouble) Then squirt a hose thru the radiator from the front of the car and see if any gets thru the front. It may have some road debris in there.

The engine in my 99 venture van wont stop overheating?i have put a new thermostat in and assured that the cooling fans are working properly??anyone???


Your water pump may be defective. The impellor may be loose. When the engine is cool, open the rad cap & start the engine. As it heats up & the thermostat opens, look in the rad and see if you have enough circulation of fluid. If not, change the water pump. Check to see if the rad fins are not loose & in good shape. If not, change the rad. Pressure test the rad cap in order to make sure it is holing the proper pressure. Hope this Helps you. Good luck!

Replaced radiator in 2001 chevy venture now no heat?


the most commen problem with no heat is an air lock in the cooling system
when the vehicle is cold remove the rad cap
then there is a air bleed screw on the coolant pipe that goes across the front valve cover open the bleed screw about 3/4 to a full turn
use a funnel and over fill the rad into the funnel (this will make a mess)
make sure you have a steady streem of coolant coming out of the bleeder when you have a steady streem close the bleeder then there is a bleeder screw on the thermostat hosing open it and when you have a steady streem from it close that one then put the rad cap back on
and start the vehicle put your heat controls on VENT ,HOT AND HIGH BLOWER SPEED
run the vehicle and make sure you have HOT AIR COMMING OUT OF THE VENTS NOT WARM if its just warm then shut the engine off and open the bleeder on the pipe not the T-STAT HOUSING
keep repeating till you get HOT AIR COMMING FROM THE VENTS
top up the over flow bottle the rad will be fine
hope this helps

Need help to change thermostat in 1998 Chevy 2500 pick up


the rad cap is on the top of the radiator on the passenger side,as for the thermostat....locate the upper rad hose(comes out of the top of the rad aprox 3" wide) it should be on the driver side of the rad. Follow the upper rad hose from the rad to the engine,the housing for the thermostat is at the end of the hose.
1:drain the radiator(there is a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator protrudes from rad looks similar to a wing nut)
2:Remove the two bolts in the thermostat housing(there may be some nuts holding some ground wires there that you have to remove before you can remove the thermostat housing bolts)
3:remove the housing ...........note: make note of the position of the thermostat before removal.
4:clean gasket surfaces install new gasket \ silicone (automotive grade silicone can be used with or without gasket) 5:insert new thermostat in the proper position.
6:replace housing and hose and top up the rad
hope this helps.......Thanks for choosing FIX YA!

How do i reverse flush fiesta radiator


(With the engine cold) remove the radiator cap

First drain the coolant out of the radiator in a container, either from a drain on the bottom of the rad, or by slowly removing the bottom rad hose.

Block, or pinch the top radiator hose

First, flush from the top... pour water into the rad cap hole for a while and let it come out the bottom hose.

Then, run water from the bottom, and let it run out of the open cap.

Then flush it from the top again.

This should flush the rad, unless it is clogged pretty solid.
