You have three possibilities if there is oil in the water. A blown head gasket, cracked block, crack in cylinder head.

Hi my thermastat was sticking and so we replaced it cause ocasionally it would run hot and then cold and we had car hooked up to censor that said it was thermostat. Well after we did that now vehicle is...

Hi Ashley, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles MO. I look forward to helping you with your problem.

Ashley, every once in a great while we technicians run across an engine where you can put the thermostat in backward, most engine's you can't install it backwards but some you can.

This is a good place to start. Check the thermostat and make sure the spring side is going into the engine block, this is the correct way to install it. If the spring side of the thermostat is pointing inside the thermostat housing then turn it over so it's pointing inside the engine block. If after checking this out and you need further help go to my website. Click here: Auto Repair

Trying to bypass the heater core

The following suggestion is as old as the water cooled engine but it still works better than any solution you can buy at an auto parts store.

Total cost: $2.00

  1. Drain1.5 gallons of water from the radiator.
  2. Close the drain **** and add one gallon of boiling water.
  3. Pour in one pound of baking soda.
  4. Pour in one pint of distilled white vinegar.
  5. Replace the radiator cap immediately.
  6. Run your vehicle for fifteen minutes.
  7. Flush the radiator and fill with clean water.

If that didn't do the job, you are going to have it boiled out at your local radiator shop. The cost will be approx. $30.

How do i put in radiator coolant in?

Get a 50/50 premix solution (or mix it yourself, but you should use distilled water) and pour it into the overflow tank. It's the white/clear plastic jug, I believe on the passenger side of your car.

You may also be able to open the radiator using the cap directly on top of it, if your vehicle is so equipped, and pour the coolant mix directly into the radiator.

It overheated, smoking and water pouring

If water poured out you probably busted a hose or radiator sprung a leak. Sounds like that and a bad thermostat or water pump went out.

Having problem maintaining water temp after water

This is either an air lock or a leaking headgasket. Remove the rad cap, with the rad full, watch for air bubbles. You didn't tell us if you were adding coolant??

Test thermostat in a jug and pour boiling water on it , it should compress meaning it works. Check that the waterpunp is operating pushing water into the engine .Check that radiator water flows to the watrpump. Is tension of fanbelt of waterpump sufficient that it doenst slip. Lastly check that the radiator fan is working if has a electric fan. if this doesn’t help check if radiator or engine water passages isn’t blocked.

Radiator water loss

heat temperature evaporates water, therefore the water level will decrease on a more than daily basis as the vehicle is used. This is just one of the reasons for water loss (or usage). The radiotor drain plug migh be loose or worn. the plug is a white plastic like bolt on the base side of the radiator. Some hoses may be loose, worn or broken. the radiator itself may have a leak somewhere within the accordions. pour in some radiator stop leak.
also try coolant instead of water; coolant has a less evaporative density than water.
