How do I bleed the cooling system?


Turn the heat control to max and remove radiator cap - add coolant as much as possible. Make sure overflow container is filled to correct level - then Start car and run - after the thermostat opens water level may go down some - keep adding coolant till it is totally full. Turn engine off and put radiator cap back on tight.

Died on rd, replaced fuel pump, crank pos sensor, temp sensor. Still starts gets to operating temp then skips dies. Won't restart till cold then same thing


A bad thermostat leads to poor engine performance as it alters the engine's operating temperature greatly. Moreover, it could also lead to reduced gas mileage. God-Bless! It may be stuck closed, if this happens it will over heat. If the thermostat is stuck here, the radiator coolant would stop working, resulting in the car overheating.

My 95 ford f150 runs great till it warms up it seems then the fuel pump looses power n shuts down wait few mins kicks back on runs fine till few min later


Sounds like your ignition module it is common on fords to do this when its cool it will start and run fine but once it heats up the truck dies until you let it cool down again and then your up and running till it heats up again. Some modules are mounted on the fender others are mounted with the distributor have it checked and let me know how it went.

Temp gauge stays cold


If the thermostat is bad (i.e. stuck open at all times), this would allow coolant to circulate in the engine even when it is below the desired operating temperature. This leads to OVERcooling of the engine. You can either replace the thermostat as a first step or remove it and test it -- closed when cold, open when heated above 190-200F.

Chevy Malibu Cold Idle Problem


Check the water coolant thermostat. If it is stuck in the "open" position you are heating up all the water in the coolant system and this will take time. The thermostat keeps the water in the engine until warmed up to almost normal running temperature, only then does it allow the coolant to enter the radiator.

I have a 1999 dodge durango that will start first thing in the morning when its cold but once it warms up and you turn the ignition off it will not start again till it cools down.


Have you checked your coolant level? Does the temperature gauge run in the red zone? IF the coolant is low refill with 50/50 mixture when engine is cool. Check for leaks on radiator and hoses running to and from the radiator . If the fluid is fine, watch the temperature guage. If it goes in to the red the thermostat/sensor may be bad and thinks it is over heating and will not let you start the car until it thinks its cool enough to do so. It will also do this when coolant is low.

No heat at idol low heat at speed flushed system, changed thermostat, right now do not have coolant in will that make a difference


yes if its not full of coolant it wont blow heat... let it cool down, fill it with coolant, start the vehicle with your defroster on, all the way over to hot, and on high, watch the level of the coolant, when the thermostat opens, the coolant will be sucked out of the radiator, top it off, after a few minutes you will feel heat.
