It does sound like a head gasket you can check by doing a bubble test,you can take a clear pop bottle and run your over flow hose in the bottle start engine cold see if you have bubbles,if you have none let engine get to temp and if you have bubbles gasket is blown or a cracked head

My van keeps heetin up and pushin water back into the coolant tank


Hi... you are going to have to do some more checking. After the engine is cooled down open the radiator cap, look for goo on the bottom of the cap. Look for oil or goo in the coolant.

What you PROBABLY have is a bad head gasket and the pressure is pushing the coolant out of the engine...

I wish I had better news...

Auxillary water pump


a great AUX water pump can be added on most vehicles by adding a TEE to the heater hose that feeds your heater core. Although your heater will not be as hot. Assuming that is not an issue.

From the TEE, add a hose to an electric water pump from a HVAC company. There are many and they are designed for hot water and pressure. if it is just pumping you want, then run the output right back to the radiator ( top hose - typically ) and it will be cooled by the radiator.

If you are looking for MORE cooling capacity, then run your AUX water through another radiator or coil of copper someplace convenient, and then back to the radiator. Depending on your needs, make the pump as large as your heat problem demands. remember - if your engine is not running and feeding this type of system, you may starve the AUX pump for water. the engine water pump is priming the AUX pump in this configuration. Good luck , Be cool :)

Running hot replaced temostat


When hot, check to see if the fan clutch is engaged fully, if the fan is spinning slower than the engine, it may be bad and needs replacement.

1990 toyota pickup is running hot and when i shut


Try with the small stuff first. Replace the thermostat. Before you do that, you should flush and refill your system with just water after the flush process. The bottle of solution that you put into your radiator to flush it and clean it has instructions, follow those. Then let the car cool down and drain the system and refill it with fresh water only. Run this water for a bit and then do it once more. Once cooled back down , replace thermostat and replace the 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water.
Check engine oil level as well, low oil will overheat engines quickly.

Have a 1993 toyota paseo it keeps running hot change out radiator and house it does not have a tremostate could that be making it run hot


An explanation of the cooling system.
You start your car, it is cold at first. The thermostat is shut. Car warms up and raises the temperature of the coolant in the engine block. Thermostat opens up. Water from the radiator (cool) is exchanged for water from the engine block (hot) The cool water causes the thermostat to shut. This traps the hot water in the radiator so that it can be cooled down. The cool water that was exchanged for the hot water, now becomes the hot water because it is in the engine block. It heats up until it's temperature causes the thermostat to open again, exchanging cool water for hot water. If you have no thermostat, then you will never hold water inside your radiator. You have to hold it there to allow it to cool off, then it becomes useful to cool your engine. So, yes put a thermostat back in it, and please vote as to whether this was helpful or not.

Radiator problems


it may be a little off, but the lower water hose seldom gets very hot,, as its this hose that suplyes the engine with ""cold water"" the hot water comes out the top hose,, drains down the rad and cools on the way down then enters the engine through the bottom hose """if your engine stayes running in the normal place on the gage,,,and not over heating""" why are you spending money for nothing???""
you wont get the bottom hose to run hot unless the engine is cooking
