You want to jack up the front center of the vihicle about 10"-1 foot. This will bring the water level to the same level as the heater core eliminating any airlocks. Fill the radiator/radiator overflow with the engine running and the heater conrols on hot/ high. Run the engine for about ten minutes and keep an eye on the fluid level. If you are unable to fill the level to it's peak/max mark then you will have to replace the thermostat also. Given that you don't have a bad(faulty) thermostat, give the engine an occasional rev to push the water through the water jacket. This should solve your situation. Thank you, Dana

How to fix the heat to work all the time when not moving


This can happen if your water pump is failing. You will get the most heat when your water pump is forcing the fluids to circulate within the engine block.

What would make a 2000 buick park avenue over heat and shut off


over heating is from ---low coolant level--blocked radiator cores--fins missing from radiator cores--thermostat not opening--coolant temperature sensor not operating the cooling fan-- driving to fast and not engaging over drive ---if the fan is mechanical and there is a viscous fan hub then the hub is faulty ( overheating at lights but cools down on moving)-- faulty radiator cap--- air in cooling system--run fault codes to check for problems with mixture and timing---low tyre pressures at speed ---over loading--pulling a heavy trailer ---hilly conditions

Perhaps some where in that list you will find an answer to your question

Heat doesnt work in my jeep cherokee when driving but when sitting heat works


Put a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator. Only if it's cold out though, Usually in really cold weather, the cooling affect of the cold air circulating around the radiator keeps the fluid from getting hot enough to produce heat unless your running in park.

How do I bleed the radiator in my C70 Volvo ? you can bleed a radiator in a C70 , rite ?..


  1. This method works best if the nose of the car is raised as high as possible. Park your car in your driveway. Let your car cool down. When your car is cooled down, you are ready to work on the cooling system.
  2. Open the hood of your car. Secure the hood with the safety handle. If you have a newer car, you should have a bleeder valve on the front of your radiator. Check in your owner's manual for the location of this valve. If you do start your car, open the valve with wrench and let your car heat up. The excess air will bleed out of your cooling system. Keep your car on long enough to give the (trapped air) time to bleed out of your system.
  3. Let your car cool down. Once the car is cool, take off the radiator cap. Did the level of the radiator fluid go down? If it did, it means you bled the air out of your cooling system. Replace the radiator fluid, turn on the car, and let it run. Replace radiator fluid as needed.
  4. Step 3 (above) is the way you will remove air from your cooling system if you do not have a bleeder valve on your radiator. You will leave the cap off the radiator. You will run your car until it heats up. As the air dissipates, the radiator fluid level will go down. You will fill up your radiator fluid to the correct level. Be careful because the heated radiator fluid will be hot. Always wear leather gloves and safety goggles when working on your radiator.
  5. Once the air dissipates and you fill the fluid, shut off the car. Let the car cool down. Once the car is cool, put the radiator cap back on the radiator. You may have to put more radiator fluid in the radiator. The level may fall as the car cools down. Now it is safe to drive your car. You have removed the trapped air from your cooling system.

Just replaced my water pump but my car is overheating. could the water pump be defective?


I would say that is possible, but unlikely, if you just put on new one, this could be most likely your thermostat is stuck or just plain bad. If it is over heating instantly, and your sure your water pump is operating correctly, then it could be the thermostat.

I have a 2002 Daewoo Nubira. We have recently had both the thermostat and the heater core replaced. We still have no heat (very little)! What else could be the problem?


More than likely there is an air pocket in the cooling/heating system. If there is no vent hole valve that is in the high point of the cooling system then what you would want to do is remove the radiator cap (when cool) to avoid getting burned, park the vehicle slightly uphill and start the vehicle and let it run til the engine gets hot enough to open the thermostat and burp out the trapped air. Many of todays vehicles don't ever really get hot enough to burp out system or the pressure in the system is too high to allow the trapped air to escape, that is why you want to remove the radiator cap. Hope this helps. If it does please give me thumbs up. Good luck.

I have a 2000 Mirage and i the morning my a/c works it cools but in the afternoon when i leve my work it blows out hot air can you help please. Les


It sounds like your air conditioning is actually not the issue here. If your a/c is working in the morning, there is no reason it shouldn't work at a different time of day. What most people don't realize is how hard an a/c system must work to cool off a car that has been sitting in the sun all day during a hot summer. Even if you leave your windows down to avoid the greenhouse effect (which can make a HUGE difference if you don't) the interior of your vehicle is still probably a dozen or more degrees hotter than the temperature outside. This is because only so much air can circulate through cracked windows, and because of the direct sunlight shining onto your vehicle's interior and upholstery. Even once the a/c system is up and cooling the air inside your car, it is still struggling against the heat stored in your car's interior, which is giving up its heat to the surrounding air as it cools off. This can take quite awhile, and if your drive home is a short one, the a/c system may never have time to fully compensate once the car's interior has cooled to match the interior's temperature. To make matters worse, if your drive home is one through the city, you can expect your a/c to suffer. The air conditioning system needs good, steady airflow over it's condenser (a radiator-type part located just behind the front grill) and lots of starts and stops in a city or heavy traffic area can obviously prevent this. Above all though, the most important thing to remember is that with even a perfectly functioning a/c system, you can usually only expect about a 30 degree drop on average from the outside air temperature. So, if it is 100 degrees out, depending on the ambient pressure and humidity (also things which can affect an a/c system's efficency) you may only get air that's 70 degrees out of your vents. I would recommend always rolling your windows down half an inch or so, and park in the shade whenever possible. Also, putting a sunshade in your front (and sometimes even rear) windows, and having your side windows tinted (when legal) can go a LONG way toward keeping your interior as cool as possible when sitting parked in the sun for long periods of time

Heat blows cold when car is idling


You have an air pocket in the cooling system. To bled it out you will have to park vehicle on an incline or jack up the front end untill the radiator cap is higher than the heater core. The remove radiator cap and run engine until warm then hold rpm to about 1200 rpm's and top off coolant level until you have no more bubbles.
