Replaced the water pump thermasta & radiator its still acting like its pressureing up on radiatior cause both hoses coming off radiatior are swelling up as soon as u crank it but I put a water hose in...

Could be that the hoses are just old and weak. There is supposed to be pressure in the system when the engine is hot. Squeeze the hoses in different areas. Do they feel softer in certain areas? If yes then replace hoses. You could also have a blown headgasket (even if you don't see white smoke). Let the engine run for a while and see what happens with the temperature. Let me know what you find out and I will continue to help.

Car heating up coolent boiling fan comes on ''no coolent in the oil 2.4 1997 sunfire were and how hard is it to change the thermasta

the thermostat is in the housing where the top radiator hose goes onto the motor, it isn't that difficult to replace all you have to do is remove the top hose from the housing,undo the bolts take the housing apart remove the thermostat & clean both surfaces with a suitable scraper or sand paper,fit the new thermostat then the new gasket & put the housing back together & refit the top radiator hose.
a couple of things to careful of : 1. DO NOT try to force the bolts to much as they may break 2. DO NOT over tighten the bolts when tightening......hope this helps......cheers

Truck is running hot. Relaced thermasta and still runs the same. Noticed the top hose gets real hot while the bottom one doesnt. Dont get it.

The cooling water doesn't seem to making it through the radiator. Look for plugged radiator, blocked upper or lower hose, or ineffective water pump. Remove the inlet and outlet hose after draining coolant from the radiator. Hold your hand over the lower hose outlet while someone fills the radiator with cold water. When full, leave the cap off, then remove your hand from the outlet. If the core is unobstructed, the water will rush through it in a few seconds. Check the upper hose inlet--there should be no obstruction. Inspect the interior of each hose looking for collapse or other blockage. If ok, that leaves the water pump--remove it from the engine and check that the impeller turns solidly with the driving pulley. Any looseness there is grounds for replacement. Hope some of this helps!

2001 Pontiac Aztek is overheating. I put in a new water pump, thermasta, but it still overheat

it could be the radiator isn't working properly, I had that problem with my Dodge truck and even though my radiator had been replaced two years earlier when I took it to a radiator shop I discovered it was bad and that was the problem the whole time.
