Is this a 4.3 V6 or a 2.2 4 cyl. ? You may have a blown head gasket. What is the temp gauge showing ?

No heat coming from the vents.


If it is a manual system--sounds like coolant low ie: air bubble in system. If it is ATC system, Check Codes, if no failure codes, coolant may be low--air bubble in system--most Durango's have air bleeders in system.

1996 nissan altima no cabin heat, new radiator, flushed and filled, top hose hot, lower hose cold, newer thermostat checked good


HI Anon.
Remove your radiator cap (WHEN ENGINE IS COLD), run the motor and let it warm up a minute or two, have someone rev the engine a little while looking into the radiator. If the water goes down and/or you see the water moving, your water pump is good. If not this means that your water pump is bad and is not moving enough water through the system. Try Removing your thermostat and run the engine without it. Keep checking the radiator hoses to see if they are the same temperature. If they are not the same temperature the water pump is bad. If they are the same temperature your thermostat is more than likely the culprit. Hope this helps.

I lost all of my radiator fluid today. This is the third time it has happened. It did not happen until we got to our destination and parked and shut off the car. The last two times I refilled the tank...


You need to check the engine oil level for coolant

Also make sure you have no external coolant leaks anywhere

I suspect that the head gasket may be letting coolant into the exhaust

I wouldn't be too concerned about the thermostat if it isn't over heating

You got a bigger issue with the lost of coolant

I have a '96 Explorer that has started overheating. I checked the fluids, which were low and refilled them. It continued to get hot and when the fluids were checked again they were empty-same day. I...


Are you just refilling the coolant resevoir, or also adding antifreeze/water mix to the radiator itself?
When the engine is cool, remove the radiator cap and add antifreeze/water mix until the radiator is full. Leave the radiator cap off and leave the hood up and start the engine and let it idle. As the engine warms up the thermostat should open up around 180 degrees and allow the water to circulate in the radiator. If you see no movement of the water and the heat continues to rise to an unsafe temperature, your thermostat is stuck and needs replacement

I have an 1998 Subaru Forester - it has overheated three times in five days. The coolant is full and new, the thermostat was replaced today. The old thermostat spring was fully extended, after replacing...


Subarus can be challenging to "burp" Sometimes it takes several attempts to get the air out of the system. The procedure is simple. Top off the radiator, squeeze the hose a few times to help get the air out, replace the cap and start the car. let it idle or drive slowly near home with the heat on high. once the temp gauge begins to rise, if there is no heat get the car back to the driveway before the temp gauge gets half way. Shut the engine off wait for it to cool, at least 10 minutes. Then check the radiator again. If there is still air top off again and repeat. After 3 or 4 attempts if there is still air and or the coolant reservoir seems to be filling, try replacing the radiator cap. If this doesn't solve the problem, It may be a head gasket.

I am having the same problem. I have read that only a GM thermostat may work aftermarket thermostats dont work in some cases. If the top radiator hose is hot and the bottom is is dramatically cooler, then more than likely, the thermostate is not opening. The other part I dont know yet is how to purge the system of air. Trying to find that out now. Good luck.

I have a 1997 kia overheating i have removed the thermostat


You have to install a new Thermostat because if the motor has no water pump thermostat sends all the coolant to the radiator and therefore the engine never warmed and you will not have heat because the coolant never be heated
