When your engine is hot,check the temperature of your rad,if you get more than 30/50 degrees difference between the top and the bottom of the rad,you need to have your rad professionaly flushed.If you have a digital laser it will out perform any other temperature testing tool.

Thermostat or water pump?


Sounds like a thermostat is being sticky. A water pump issue should cause the vehicle to over heat quickly while driving if it is not pumping.

Changed water pump,thermostat, top rad. hose. still leaking leaking antifreeze from what looks like below thermostat housing. have noticed super small hose from water pump to engine. looks hard to replace....


That is called the bypass hose. It could be leaking but I'd take a closer look at the thermostat housing. If you replaced only the thermostat and not the housing, the housing may be leaking. It's a common source of coolant leaks.

Engine keeps overheating


I'd start with replacing thermostat (that's the most common fault) Other possibilities; waterpump,leaky hose, radiator cap (not holding pressure), fan belt broken. I'd inspect for belt & leaks - if good replace thermostat.

I HAVE REPLACED THERMOSTAT,STILL SYSTEM OVERHEATS AND HAVE NO HEAT, WILL BLEEDING THE SYSTEM FIX THAT?AND HOW DO I GO ABOUT THAT?P.S. ITS A 2002 CHEVY VENTURE


There is an air bleed on the top of the water pump outlet and another on the thermostat housing/upper rad hose neck. With the rad cap open and these screws loose, fill the cooling system until water comes out, then close the screws. Do not over tighten them.

My 2004 Dodge truck 4.7L over heats when I pull my trailer. I replaced the thermostat and the water pump. What do you suggest. Should I replace the rad cap? Trailer weight is 1500lbs.


Seeing as it seems you do not have any overheating problem other than when you are towing I believe that you need to make sure that when towing you do not have the transmission in overdrive unless going downhill. This is the #1 reason for transmissions failure while towing. Trans overheat = engine overheat
Hope this helps.

I've intrepid car has overheating problem has thermostat, working water pump, and keeps overheating


Might be blown head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Either of these would tell you that.
Also the exhust can get into the coolant and make the coolant low all the time.
I had two Chrysler products that the exhaust forced coolant out and had a bad head gasket.

My dodge ram 1500 is overheating and burning the coolant. I already changed my radiator and the thermostat, and it's not leaking but I can smell like burnt coolant, I have to be putting more cooling every...


I would defiantly check the water pump, can you feel pressure in the rad lines? when you changed the rad and thermostat out, did you run your vehicle without the rad cap for awhile to ensure that there was no air locks within the system?
Water pump is located at the front of the engine behind the fan.
Good Luck! hope this helps.

Radiator


the upper rad hose goes from the rad to the thermostate housing. this hose is @2-21/2" the lower hose same size goes from lower rad to water pump. There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 3.9 engine overheating


Check your rad hoses. They will tend to collapse (**** in) & cut down on flow at highway speeds, more than city, due to increased demand & flow on cooling system. If they don't feel relatively stiff, I'd change them. You might even see them **** in while sitting and revving the engine a bit.
