SOURCE: 99 grand am gt overheating changed thermostat and

try priming the engine block & radiator with water though the hose's & any hose you can squeeze to pump out the air lock with the filler cap off when running, sounds too much air is is in the system & the pump won't work dry.
I had this problem a few times & I ended up practically forcing water into any hose I could re-attach quickly using a garden hose, as the heating system need's priming too !

Im over heating bad


Hi Jillian,
Assuming it is not related to improper servicing, it could simply be a LOW coolant level, stuck thermostat, loose/failed drive belt or a failed water pump. The ease & expense of repair increases from minimal amount for low coolant level to the most costly being the failed water pump. There are other possible causes including clogged radiator, hose, etc. but those problems don't happen as frequently as those I listed.
Reghardless of cause, you should NOT drive the vehicle while in an overheated condition as this can cause a *very* expensive engine repair.
Good luck!

Have an 2003 Olds Alero 2.2L, overheating. Removed thermostat housing/feed pipe to check thermostat to find no thermostat present, however the heat has working, although it has took 5 or 6 minutes to warm...


I can't give you any specifics on how to change your water pump, but I can answer your questions about the thermostat. Yes, the heat will work withou a thermostat. And yes, a car will overheat without one, especially in the summer months. The purpose of a thermostat is to allow cooler water to flow into your block, but also to allow the water adequate time to be cooled in the radiator. Without the thermostat, water is continuously cycling through your coolant system, getting hotter and hotter. Often I see people with malfunctioning thermostats jsut remove them, sometimes on the side of the road, just to get where they're going.

My van still shows sign off over heating according to my thermostat but recently replaced water pump and radiator


the 4.3 engine has a problem with leaking intake manifold gaskets. check for leakage behind the water pump. did you change the thermostat? This controls the engine temp. check for rusty radiator cap and replace if worn

OVERHEATING


This could be a multitude of things:

Stuck closed thermostat.

Cooling fan not coming on.

Clogged radiator.

Low on coolant.

Water pump failing/leaking.

Head gasket blown, leaking exhaust into antifreeze.

Clogged catalytic converter.

Thermostat: If the Van heats up, then feel the upper radiator hose. If it's cold, then your thermostat is closed. Replace thermostat.

Coolant: If low, simply fill with distilled water and coolant. Low levels will let engine over heat.

Radiator: If there are cold-to-the-touch spots on the radiator after it should be warmed up, then a clogged is probably occuring. Have radiator flushed.

Head Gasket: If you smell exhaust fumes in your coolant reservois tank, then you got a blown head gasket.

Cat Converter: Only can be tested if off the car. Or you could try a non-contact thermometer. These are also good to testing cold spot on radiator or if thermostats are open.

Cooling fan: If mechanical it'll be spinning. If electrical, it should come on automatically with the A/C, or when it gets hot.

Water pump: Will be leaking from the front if it needs replaced. On a van, it's a tough job.

Good luck!

Last week my van 88 plymouth voyager over heated, now it will not start and others are telling either it has no compression or the timing went or needs to be readjusted, please help


Your nearest mechanic might have a compression tester/meter to verify it. Sometimes it depends on the degree of overheating that will cause damage to the top gasket and piston rings. A warped engine head is likely also.

Toyota estima 2.2 td 1992 van overheating


the impellors in the water pump are prone to corrosion,especially if no or incorrect radiator additives have been used .this will cause water to stay in motor & boil whilst the water in the radiator stays cold because it cannot circulate.try flushing radiator ,installing a new thermostat (which is more than likely not opening )& radiator cap,refil with correct additive,.if the car still over heats then you will need to replace the water pump.bugger!!
