You need to flush the radiator out.
With the engine cold, remove coolant bottle cap to release pressure.
Drain engine coolant from drain plug on radiator.
With the drain plug removed disconnect the highest hose connected to a radiator.
use an hosepipe and put it in place of the disconnected radiator pipe.
turn on the water to the hose pipe and let it flush out any sludge accumulated in the radiator. after a few minutes turn off water supply, reconnect radiator hose and drain plug and refil using recommended coolant mix for your galaxy (purchased at most autofactors and garages).
Also check your thermostat as if this is faulty it would stop the flow of coolant running around your engine.

hope this helps

2005 ford freestyle wont rev up past 2500 rpms


If you hit the Rev Limiter on a Ford, it will simply bounce the rev back down, to protect the Engine. So, no high Revs. But, you should be able to bring it slowly to a High RPM. That is normal. If there are no Check Engine Light on. You are most likely hitting the rev Limit and need to stop.

What is the radiator dimension size for a 1998 ford expedition 4.6L 2x4


For a 98 Ford Expedition, I've found an aftermarket manufacter that specifies this measures, just for the radiator core:
Height.- 31-7/8"
Width.- 16-3/16"
Thick.- 2-1/4"
Inlet/outlet .- 1-3/4"
But before changing the whole part, you should have an expert opinion first, because not all overheating problems are a radiator failure.

Mazda tribute revs to 4200 misfires


Is it misfiring or is the high rev limiter kicking in? Mazda's are not high rev engines even with the ford engine in it! mine idles at 750 +/- and hits 2500 at 75 MPH if I punch it it will go to 3g but not much higher.

Good luck

Replaced thermostat, water continues to overheat and is expelled out the cap to the water reservoir. Water heat gauge show low heat then spikes to extreme high intermittently.


You have air pockets in the system. With the engine cold, remove the radiator cap. Then run the engine until the thermostat opens as you top off the radiator and keep an eye on the temperature gauge. If you think the car is going to overheat, replace the radiator cap, shut off the engine and wait 15 to 20 minutes to let the engine cool. Once the thermostat opens, lightly grab the upper radiator hose to feel for air pockets. You will feel the bubbles as they pass through the hose. Then have someone else rev the engine to 1800 - 2000 rpm and hold it there while you top off the radiator completely and then install and tighten the radiator cap. DO NOT DROP THE RPM BEFORE THE CAP IS SECURED OR YOU MAY BE SERIOUSLY BURNED!! Finally, let the engine run and monitor the temperature and road test. You may have to repeat the steps 2 or more times to remove all of the air but usually it will clear the first time.

Fan kicking in too often 1998 f150 4x4 4.6 tow


If the engine is not over heating then it is doing its job. The constant cycling is based on the temp of the air traveling through the radiator and the a/c condenser not the outside temp so much. The start up high rev is just how these clutches work in ford fans. It sounds like it is operating correctly.

1998 Pontiac Grand AM GT motor revs


it would not be an O2 sensor, period, they would never cause a high idle, have u had this checked for trouble codes? A sticking idle speed control air bypass can cause this problem as well as a throttle position sensor, but run the codes, Kragen does it for free was well as other parts stores.
