Overheating problem My Toro Model 3200 workman overheats. It seems like the water isn't getting to the motor. I pulled the thermostat out but still does same thing. The last time it happened I opened the bleed valve on top of the thermostat housing and only steam came out. Should I look at a new radiator?

You might need to replace the Radiator but try bleeding it again, try this open the bleeder valve and put a water hose in the Radiator with a rag wrapped around it to seal the gap around the hose and turn it on with the bleeder valve open and see if the water comes out if it doesn't then there could be a blockage then remove the thermostat housing and see if it comes out of their and you can do the same with the Radiator also if it comes out of the Radiator slow then you might take the Radiator to a radiator shop they can test it, fix it or sell you a new one,before you remove the Radiator remove the Radiator cap start the engine and watch the water flow to see if it flows fast when the engine is reveed up if it doesn't it could be the water pump is bad and it would need to be replaced

I would take a close look at the water pump
if the water isnt moving through the system it basically becomes a kettle
thats why steam comes out of the bleed nipple

2001 lincoln ls v6 engine overheats when air condition is on?


replace your thermostat and check the waterpump. The ac "pulls" heat out of the air in the car thereby making it cooler, at the expense of making your coolant heat up even quicker than normal. Try this to see what's going on.. Open the radiator cap, start the engine and wait until the car gets up to operating temperature. You should be able to see the water circulating through the radiator...if the fan comes on, and the water isn't moving, then replace the thermostat. If it still isn't moving after that, the water pump may be no good. Id bet on the thermostat. They're cheap and need to be replaced every so often. If the water is circulating and the fan never turns on, then you check the fan motor, relay, etc. There is also a temperature sensor located somewhere next to the thermostat. It's rare to have to replace that, but if it's faulty, then the fan won't turn on and thus overheating occurs. I am assuming here that if you drove your car up a hill without the ac on, it will overheat or get hotter than normal...So....go test your circulation first and let me know what you find. Oh yeah, when you do the circulation test, turn your heater in the car on full blast too...does it get hot inside the car?

Overheating


Check coolant level, fan and relays work fine, thermostat isn't stuck, water pump work correctly and temperature sensor isn't out of range.

Keep in touch.

97 Landcruiser. It overheats, and the water does not seem to be circulating. (No pressure or water flow through upper and lower hoses). Is this a water pump? I always thought water pumps leaked and...


Before throwing a waterpump at it, try a thermostat. If that sticks shut you'll get no circulation and overheating. A way to test, pull thermostat and TEMPORARILY run it without thermostat.I stress temporarily and just for test. You should see water circulating through radiator then. If not then you know waterpump is bad.

Your thermostat could be stuck. With it boiling over and and overheating it sounds like the thermostat isn't opening up to let the water flow to cool the engine and causing the engine to overheat.

My car was overheating so i took off the thermostat and replace a hose that was leaking but now car hasn't overheat yet b water comes out through reservoir tank what could be the problem now?


the water is getting to hot even though its not overheating because you need a thermostat to trap the water in the radiator to give the water a chance to cool down then the thermostat opens and the cold wanter enters the motor and the hot water in the motoer enters the rad. to cool down. with no thermostat, this doesnt happen it just circulates and warm up to the temp it warms up to and is at the same temp in motor and rad then to hot will come out the overflow, as a resualt, you will wind up losing antifreeze then wont have enough antifreeze in your engine then will damage your engine.Put a thermostat in and a water pump. fix it right or you will damage your car.

Where is termostat in hyundai elantra


It is not likely the thermostat, because the thermostat is showing that it is overheating,so it is working, you must have a coolant leak somewhere. You will have to find coolant leak. Car is overheating because it is low on coolant

1982 Landcruiser, overheating


I would suggest to check to make sure the fan is not on backwards. I dont know if its possible to even put it on backwards. just check to make sure that the fan is pulling air thru the grill instead of blowing out the grill. Also look into the radiator and see if you can see any lime or sediment in the radiator tubes. It will be white in color.A small amount of scale on the inside of the tubes act as insulation, and keeps the coolant from contacting the tubes and transfering the heat to the tubes so the air passing across the radiator can carry it away. Just flushing the radiator wont remove the lime scale, the radiator would need to be remove and dissassembled and rodded out. I dont think you have a blown head gasket yeti,if it not blowing water out when its cold and you dont have any performance problems, runs fine, just overheats. You might try turning on the heater when it starts to overheat and turn the heater fan on high as it acts as a radiator and see if it cools down indicating the cooling capacity of the radiator is diminished

90 subaru legacy overheats, wheres the thrmostat


When a car overheats it's rarely the thermostat. They just don't go bad that often. If it overheats when you idle a lot, it's the fan and with electric fans, it's almost always the fan motor. But to find the thermostat, follow the top radiator hose to the engine and there it is.
