1999 Cadillac eldorao it keeps saying it's running hot but I'm not losing water or it's not smoking


Is the thermostat stuck closed or partially closed, or is the radiator cap not releasing at around 14 PSI?

Runs hot its a new waterpump an thermostat someone said I need a valleypan gasket


valley pan has nothing to do with running hot unless you are losing water , you should do a radiator flush kit and after flushing it replace the thermostat with a new one

My Chrysler Concorde 2000 3.2? Overheated and melted a hole in the water resivour tank,so we replaced that, it still got hot fast, so we replaced thermostat, then it started making a loud noise it sounds...


The whistling noise is steam. The problem is you never attacked the source of the problem. What you need to do now is drain your radiator completely at opening T-spicket at the bottom of the radiator. While you drain with engine off, run your water hose on top, to flush out the radiator. Then run to the Auto store and buy "radiator flush" -- follow directions. After flushing out the radiator flush, close the T-spicket, and fill with NEW anti-freeze. By enough to fill to the very top. Mix the anti-freeze with water per instructions to your environmental weather.
Buy a new radiator cap which could have caused the problem in the first place by not allowing the correct pressure to blow off. Being a 2000 car is a little early for radiator problems, but an incorrect anti-freeze solution causes radiators to fail prematurely.. Better to have more than less because anti-freeze keeps the radiator from corroding.
Your radiator never cooled the water sufficiently, and boiled much of the water out, hence it got so hot that it would melt the water tank. The Thermostat could well have been the cause because it got corroded from the inept ant-freeze mixture. Did you find rust on the Thermostat ? If so it was the case. If not the radiator has lost cooling either by low water or the cores have become plugged up, in that case you will need a new radiator. See if the flush loosens the rust within the cores before buying an expensive radiator. Check the water hoses if leaking cooling. Run the car allow the engine to become hot before accepting that your water hoses are fine. Because heat expand everything, and may not leak until after the expansion.

My car is overheating. i got water in my transmission, and transmission fluid in my water. is it my radiator? can my transmission cooling lines be backwards? my car is not smoking and no water is comming...


Sounds like the transmission cooler tank with in the radiator has gone bad, the transmission lines can go on either way, does not matter, replace radiator and have cooling system flush and have a transmission flush also done.

It overheated, smoking and water pouring


If water poured out you probably busted a hose or radiator sprung a leak. Sounds like that and a bad thermostat or water pump went out.

Engine hot. The top of the engine has a little smoke coming from it. COuld be the engine (where the hand is that says - hot - do not touch) or it could be that there is a little oil on the top that is...


It sounds like your engine is getting really hot.You need to find the cause quickly before you damage the engine further. First check the thermostat. Then if that is ok, have the radiator and engine block reverse flushed. Unless there is something major wrong or the cooling system is losing water, this shpould fix it.

Does the cooling system from a 2002 Grand Cherokee can be purged. It's heating; there's no water leaks at all.


I usually will flush a cooling system when I change radiator fluid every 3-4 years. There are many ways to do this, I frequently will just open the draincock on bottom of radiator, run engine, and allow to drain out with a hose in the radiator to replace. This works better if you pull the thermostat, and it's always nice if you actually drop a hose from bottom of radiator to drain.

Oh, and while running engine and flushing, make sure heater is on full hot to flush the heater core.

Got a 96 crown vic that runs but smoking white smoke from under the hood and it runs hot ....the resevoir is full so there is no leak there and i replaced the thermostat but it didnt work


you ether have a coolant leak or one of these are the problem thermastat,fan clutch,water pump,radiator, try this start car when it reachs normal temp open hood and pinch the top radiator hose if it is hot water is flowing thermastat is good now open radiator with a towel slowly while it is runing see if the water is moving if it is you water pump and radiator are good, now at some point in this time you should have heard the fan get loud if not your fan clutch is not work it mounts to the front of your water pump and is normal to go out because they lose about 250rpm a year which does not give them much of a life, dont forget to check your heater hoses they could be leaking
