Try changeing the thermostat.Follow the uper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine and it will lead you to the thermostat housing.Take note on how the thermostat is in the engine and put it bake the same way with the new one.

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.

Over heating, thermostat replaced, radiator, engine, and heat core flushed, no water in exhaust.fans working, water pump flushes water thru.


You may have air in the system. Let the engine run with the radiator cap off until the thermostat opens. Have someone then get in the truck and bring the rpm up to 1800 to 2000 rpm and hold it there for 15 to 20 seconds while you top off the system with coolant and put the radiator cap tightly back on. Then bring the rpm down to idle and road test the truck. DO NOT BRING THE RPM BACK DOWN TO IDLE UNTIL THE RADIATOR CAP HAS BEEN INSTALLED COMPLETELY. I suggest replacing the radiator cap at this time also.

1991 honda accord over heating when i drive at top speed


Top speed is hard on a car, at that age of vehicle worn water pump and old old with buildup a bad thermostat and radiator with scale buildup on inside and debris on the outside creates more heat than released. try replacing the thermostat and water pump and doing an flush of the cooling system with an oil change and see if that helps. Also a new radiator cap will hold proper pressure on the system so dont forget that.

1998 nissna maxima , with radiator replacement car continues to overheat, with low to no heat


First, make sure engine is warmed up, then feel the top of the radiator hose, is it hot ?, if not then you may have a bad thermostat, replace with a 195 dgree, or you could have a bad head gasket.
Let me know what you find.

No heat on 1999 blazier


Water pump may be worn and needs to be replaced. You can try flushing out the heater core it self buy disconnecting the two heater hose from the water pump and flushing water through it to get any restriction out. Once you flushed out the heater core, reattached the hose at the water pump and see if that helps. If not then your going to have to replace the water pump it self. Good luck

Over heating


The water pump has what's called a 'weeping hole' built into it. If the pump is bad You'll se water coming out of the hole. When was the last time you flushed the radiator? It may be your radiator cap is bad, they should be changed once a year & the radiator flushed. You can also test ur thermostate. take out ur thermostate & put it in a pot of water so that the water covers the thermostate. Then put a cooking thermometer in the pot to & heat the water til it says 195. u should see the car thermostate begin to open. if it don't it's bad & needs replacing.
