I had a bottom radiator hose blow off my 05 equinox and I flushed the block then the heater core a d changed the thermostat put all new coolant in and still keeps overheating


What about the radiator? Water pump? Can you check for coolant flow? There could be air in the cooling system? Do you trust your temp gage? Are there overheating issues besides the temp gage showing hot, like coolant overflowing, under the hood, somewhere?

The overflow will not go thru the hoses or to the radiator.


Check temperature with auxiliary gage! Check head gaskets are not blown.

2002 chrysler 300m special overheating


Only thing I do not see in your list and the most overlooked is a new radiator cap. The radiator cap itself is extremely important to regulate the pressure in the system and just something as simple as this could be the problem. If this doesn't I would have to know more. Is the heat working? If not could indicate a clog in the heater core. When you stop does the coolant overflow into the overflow (common condition when the radiator cap) is bad. Since you have done everything it is my guess since you replaced the radiator you used the old cap.

My 1989 GMC Sierra (350, 2WD) was leaking from the water pump and overheating...Installed new water pump and serpentine belt (after getting it off, it needed to be replaced)...Truck is still overheating,...


when replacing coolant, did you bleed the air from system! you can remove radiator or overflow cap when cold. start vehicle and let it run until thermostat opens,when all air is out hoses should get hot. but before starting, turn heater on to high setting, if you vehicle does not have a air bleeder on it. do as above. just be sure radiator is full of coolant. after hoses get hot, turn off heater, then put cap back on radiator or overflow. good-day! the first thing to do is to check for a stuck closed thermostat. do this first ok!

Why does my cadillac 1998 deville keep overheating?


Overheating can be numerous things: Fans not working, water pump, thermostat, overflow cap, and the list keeps going. When the engine is running and heats ups, feel the heat of the top hose, if the hose isn't hot, the thermostat is most likely stuck open and needs replaced. If it is hot we know you have circulation. The cap on the expansion tank may be defective, if it can't hold the pressure of the water, it will release at the overflow cap if the cap is bad. Also check the coolant level.

Heating problem


If you changed the thermostat yourself and have noted that the lower radiator hose is cooler than the upper radiator hose, you may have installed the thermostat incorrectly or have purchased a faulty thermostat. A lower radiator hose that does not get hot (or as hot as the upper radiator hose) is a direct indication of a faulty thermostat. Please vote for this solution if you found this to be helpful.

Engine overheating


The best way to flush it would be to take off the bottom radiator hose and pump water through the fill nozzle after all the coolent is out you can then hook the hose back up and replace it with new coolant.
