I can think of 2 possible reasons: 1) The coolant level in your system is low and the engine "sucks" coolant when you increase the RPM or 2) your head gasket(s) have develped a problem and allow the radiator to get too much pressure. In either case, have a competent technician do a pressure test and check the coolant lebe - that needs to be done when the engine is COLD.

No heat in acura tl


Check coolant level...next would be replace thermostat, then if needed flush and refill radiator/cooling system...any leaks?

Top half or Radiator is hot while the bottom half remains cold . Is this normal


This can be due to one of a few different things...First of all, water flows from the engine to the bottom of the radiator, using the water pump and gravity, and the water returns from the radiator back into the engine on the top side.

Thermostat isn't opening...this causes the water / antifreeze to remain in the engine, and not flow through to the radiator. If the water / antifreeze gets hot enough, it should activate the thermostat and water should flow into the radiator through the bottom radiator hose.

The bottom radiator hose is either worn out (there is a spring inside the length of the bottom hose. it is there to keep the hose from collapsing under the suction pressure during normal use) If the hose feels spongy, soft, or shows signs of cracking, replace it.

The radiator may be clogged, preventing the water from flowing freely through all of the 'fins' in the grill section of the radiator. Hot water usually isn't just in the top section during a clogged radiator situation...

Nissan maxima loses power after 50 miles per accelaration


Could be an overheating problem, the head may be reaching a certain temperature that causes it to warp. It would do that if it had overheated in the past. Check the radiator and see if there is oil at the inside top of it. If there is, remove it and replace with anti-freeze and water. Then add AlumaSeal aluminum powder to the radiator fluid through the radiator cap, not the overflow container. Clean the surfaces of the radiator cap and radiator before replacing the cap.

I need diagram for the inside of radiator to see how the water flows and what radiator actually looks like on the inside. could someone post a diagram for me


No you don't

Water flows either top to bottom
or across any radiator

Simple look at the tubes & you got your answer

Water will enter from the top hose, coming from the
thermostat,flow across most radiators & out the bottom
& back to the water pump

Any and all questions are avail-- if you use Google &

Changed water pump changed thermostat still over heating no water in oil that seems to be okay what else can it be


have radiator checked for flow . you can remove the radiator cap when cold and start up the truck and look inside radiator. you should be able to see coolant flowing thru the coils. if not you may need to have radiator cleaned by a shop or buy a new one.also check your fan

New thermostat fitted radiator cap had tested for blown gasket sees ok. Radiator looks very clean inside. Runs fine for plus munis 40 km [hard driving) and suddenly overheats pushing water into...


The radiator sheds heat at a specific rate. Increasing air flow increases that rate a bit, but even with increased air flow, there is a specific rate.

When you start out, there is a "cold reservoir" in the radiator — without shedding any heat at all, for a while the cold water in the radiator will keep the engine cool.

If the heat from the engine exceeds the heat the radiator can shed, as soon as the radiator water hits the temperature of the engine, you will have overheating.

If you have a head gasket leak, you are injecting heat directly into the water, heat that ought to go out the tailpipe.

If some of the tubes in the core of the radiator are not flowing, the ability of the radiator to shed heat will be diminished.

I am thinking it is either a head gasket leak/cracked combustion chamber, or a radiator that does not flow water through all the tubes.

A lean fuel mixture will generate a lot more heat than one that is richer. The coloration of the spark plug insulators can be helpful in assessing the mixture.

Even after replacing the radiator, thermostat and


The problem with overheat is due to poor coolant circulating. The main culprit is the Radiator. When the radiator is clogging up, coolant can't be circulating. The stagnant coolant inside the engine water jacket keeps absorb heat from combustion chambers having no way to dissipate the heat then the engine is overheated. You can test the water pump by removing the thermostat, then hooking everything back. Open the radiator cap, then turn on the engine to see if water flowing down to several small tubes inside the radiator. If water can't go down fast enough to cause over flow at radiator opening then your 90 Legend Radiator already got clogged up. Replace with a new radiator, not even a rebuilt one. Good luck.

How to check if vw 1996 microbus radiator is


You must remove the bottom rubber hose from the radiator, and also the upper hose. Extract the radiator out or simply flush the radiator in reverse direction of water flow. If the radiator is clogged you can try to clean inside (chemically) or replace it. Flush the cooling system in reverse direction of water flow. Refit all in reverse order and after that purge air out of cooling system.

When you bypass the heater core the path for the water to go through the core is gone. Correct?, you have connected to engine water line out to the engine water input? thus bypassing the heater core........


No, you just won't have water flow through the heater core, Coolant flows through the engine through the lower radiator hose as the water pump sucks it out of the radiator and pushes it through the engine. It then flows out the top radiator hose when the thermostat opens. It then flows into the radiator to cool off.

Is your heater core leaking?

are you sure you bleeded the air out correctly. These are a pain sometimes. Water pump blades are know to fall apart and this could also clog up the system almost anywhere
