Either your head gaskets are bad, or your radiator is bad. If there is no coolant, or muck on your oil dipstick, then it is your radiator. Replace it and your issue will cease. It's worth the expense to buy a "new" one. Used may be good for a week, a month, or 2 years; you never know.

I have a 84 351 windsor that runs way to hot i put


seems to me that you could have an air lock, try loosening the rad cap slightly and run car until fans kicks in, squeeze upper rad hose a few times to push any air out. Careful with hot hoses. see if this helps.

No heat in 1995 crown victoria, thermostate has been changed. the rad was flushed, Hoses top is warm to hot, lower is warm to cold , car is not overheating


feel the hoses that go into the heater core at the firewall,if both are hot,either a door under the dash is stuck shut or you need to flush your heater core by removing both hoses and flush with water hose

Over heating


The water pump has what's called a 'weeping hole' built into it. If the pump is bad You'll se water coming out of the hole. When was the last time you flushed the radiator? It may be your radiator cap is bad, they should be changed once a year & the radiator flushed. You can also test ur thermostate. take out ur thermostate & put it in a pot of water so that the water covers the thermostate. Then put a cooking thermometer in the pot to & heat the water til it says 195. u should see the car thermostate begin to open. if it don't it's bad & needs replacing.

How to dianose waterpump to find problem


Could be the water pump or the serpentine belt is slipping on the water pump pulley. Is the radiator coolant hot? If it is, the coolant is not circulating through the block and heater core. I am assuming you see and hear no leaks and you have installed the thermostat in the correct direction to match the coolant flow.You should be able to squeeze the radiator hose before the thermostat and feel it expand when you have the engine running. You might be able to splice a hose with a T connection and valve to see the flow. Otherwise you would have to take out the pump and check the impeller.

Blower motor resistor


The blower motor resistor is located near the blower motor. It is held in place by 2 screws, and has a wire clip connected to it. Very simple fix.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
