It sounds like you have a vapor lock in the cooling system. The same thing happened to me and all I did was remove the rad cap,started the engine and brought it up to temperture. I then let it cool down,topped up the coolent and replaced the rad cap. That worked for me,now everything is back to normal. It's worth a try,good luck. Len

I noticed overheating, no warm air when heat was turn on. ? is the t-stat stuck close or water pump gone? checked hoses in and out of the heater core from under the hood and they were not hot nor felt like...

Well if the thermostat was stuck closed, the engine and the heater would get hot but the coolant would not flow thru the radiator.
If the cooling system is full of fluid, and the engine is running hot, and the heater hoses are cold, I would say the water pump has failed or you have another kind of restriction.

My 1997 civic dx,in fifth gear it whistles what could be the problem?and never over heated before forgot to put my coollent cap and all of it came out refilled it and only over heats when on freeway?

could be a an air blockage some fiats have a small valve which you have to turn to release the presure if not get the thermostat checked if you take the cap of any car radiator bottle the back presure will make the water come out be very carfull as the water in the colant system is super heated and wiil scold thanks ivan

How to install a thermostat in a ford ranger 4.0L engine?

Its easy follow the top radiator hose back to the engjne to the goose neck the t.stat is under this part Drain some antifreeze from radiator you don;t have to drain itall out Remove clamp from hose to goose neck Remove bolts holding neck on you will lose a little antifreeze in the prosses Claen all old gasket meterial off bolth sides this is important it must be clean Remove old t.stat check the tempature stamped on t.stat replace with the same or similar temp you don;t change this to much Install new t.stat and gasket you can use a sealer it won;t hurt Install goose neck but don;t over tighten you can crack the neck 10 to 12 ft lbs is all you need BUT THE T.STAT IS NOT USELY NOT THE PROBLEM WITH COOLING SYSTEMS you can try back flushing the system and putting new antifreeze first this may solve your over heating problem

I just reapir the overheating problem on my 2001 chevy silverado 5.3 2wd. I am still is full of coolant...reservour is still at the fill line with GM dexcool coolant. The problem to begin...

If it overheated i would replace the thermostant and gasket, also make sure its full of coolant, after replacing the thermostat you may have air in system so let it run until stat opens it may boil over a little until stat opens then it will **** coolant into block when that happens fill with coolant, you will need to let it idle for a while before new stat opens, hope this helps, good luck, i think the stat went bad the first time it overheated.

My heat stop working,i was told it is the termostat can not find the termostat

the t-stat is located on the front side of the engine underneath. you actually have better visibilty underneath the vehicle. i would perform a flush prior to replacing any parts. if it was the t-stat, you would also have over heat issues. a t-stat is nothing more then a temperature sensitive, mechanical restriction in the cooling system. wax pellets heat up during the warm up process allowing the engine to heat more rapidly during cold start and push the valve open allowing for flow to the radiator. go to your local parts store and for about $10 you can get a flush chemical which will help flush your system of contaminants and corrosion and then refill the system with fresh coolant and distilled water. be sure that the system is totally full and bled or you will know the first time you take it out and it over heat due to lack of fluid.

My 2001 Chrysler Town & Country recently loss it's heater ability. When engine is warm, it barelys puts on at the highest setting. I changed thermo stat which did look worned but no help yet. I can't...

Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you

Coolant over heat, should the overflow resovoir have a vent hole in it?

No, The system is sealed and presurized. It is unlike the older american cars that had a non-presurized tank.
