Changed thernostat on 2004 chevy venture now overheating? upper hose hot lower hose cool? when I try to bleed system nothing but steam for minutes no coolant

Yes your radiator could be calcified....if there is internal build up no flushing will fix may need something strong like CLR in the system for a while. Sounds like the rad is plugged. perhaps just get a new one.....then you will know it is good.

How to tell if radiator is not working on 2004 Grand Prix changed everything else

If rad is plugged/restricted the vehicle will overheat. If thermostat is opening, both upper and lower rad hoses will get hot. If there is a rad problem with circulation, the upper hose will get hot and the lower hose will be cool/warm

There's a clunking noise coming out of the lower rad and it's making the hose pulsate. There is no pressure on no hose No heat

is cooling system full of anifreeze..if not it has an air lock in it that clunks like a steam radiator in an old building...need to check level and maybe replace thermostat..

1999 grand prix gt overheating. Changed thermostat, water pump, upper radiator hose. Please help!

does the upper and lower hoses seem to be the same temp when car begins to overheat? ore the radiator cooling fans coming on before the car overheats? did you pressure test the cooling system and radiator cap? also may want to remove the lower hose and flush the radiator. is the check engine light on and does it run bad?

Honda Odyssey Coolant System Prob.

You may have air in the system. Run the car with the cap removed and the defrosters on allowing air to escape. Add antifreeze as needed to keep full while running. Fluid level will drop as thermostat opens.

Lower rad hose blew off. replaced thermostat. ran fine 2-3 days.then upper rad hose blew off. now temp gauge wont go over 120 degrees

Something is building up pressure. Cheapest thing first replace the thermostat then try the water pump then the rad.

I need to know which line is the pressure hose for power steering on my 92 celica gt.

the high pressure hose is usually the smaller diameter hose,if they are both the same size look for the hose that is just clamped on instead of bolted on and that would be your low pressure hose,hope this helps

2002 V.W. Jetta 2.0 liter overheat

turn your heater on to max heat and high fan. then see if you can feel the hoses on the firewall for heat they should be hot. make sure that the fan unit on the radiatoris working if the upper radiator hose is hot the fans should be running if they are not that means that either the relay is bad the thermo sensor is bad or the fan unit is shot... please rate the solution..........thanks

Radiator Hoses......????????????

that little hose is called a by-pass hose the upper should go to the intake manifold where the thermostat is you have a lower hose tah goes to the water pump and then you have a very small hose tah connects at the neck of the radiator that goes to your overflow tank. the hose should be about 15 bucks.. please rate this thanks
