Has your Mechanic checked even after the replacement of thermostat and I believe the fan switch and coolant temperature whether is there any pressure caused on radiator upper hose or did he check by removing the radiator cap when is cold whether it smell either fuel or burnt gasket ? Try these and if you have anyone of then by friend you will have a blown gasket. Good luck

04 Buick Rendezvous over heated last night. I pipe-wrenched the rad-cap off to find no hole. just inches of brown mud. I assume it is engine rust. this car has never been flushed in 220,000 miles. do


Take it to a radiator specialist or dealer ASAP before you overheat the engine again and do some seriously expensive damage - at the very least you need a radiator flush.

I found a mud like substance in my 1998 buick century antifreeze reservour


this could be one of two problems.1.someone has mixed two different types of antifreeze that are not compatible,you need to flush/ refill asap.2.you do not have the right amount of antifreeze in the system and its rust dust(mud). system needs full flush/refill to 50/50.when you do flush.flush backward,up to the reservoir,not down(i take the top hose off the heater,block the pipe,and connect a hose to the heater manifold,if you can get to it.....that way you wont get any air in system.

Overheated truck


Your radiator is getting clogged up with mud causing the lack of air flow through the radiator. You may want to install a mud deflector in front of your radiator to keep the mud from clogging up the radiator and may be run your antifreeze ratio 40/60 (antifreeze/water) the higher the water content the better the heat transfer, but your have to keep an eye on the level of the coolant level more often. Water will evaporate quicker but too muck antifreeze will have poor heat transfer and 100% antifreeze will gel when heated causing poor circulation causing overheating. Good luck and hope this helps.

I was told it didn't have one but my husband did find it. You have to remove the mud guard located under the radiator and it will be on the drivers side of the radiator.

1987 Chevy G20 van replace power steering pump


Does your van have the serpentine belt? If so maybe I can help, I replaced the Power steering pump on my 90 G20 a couple of weeks ago. The trick is that you need to pull the pump pulley which is pressed on to access the mounting bolts which attach the pump to the engine. Harbor Freight tools sells a great tool designed for this job for $20.00. Once you have the correct tools, remove the serpentine drive belt. You may also need to remove the fan shroud. the pump shaft looks like it has an allen socket in the center, but this is for use in the manufacturing process, and will not come out. Place the puller tool on the pulley following tthe instruction that come with the tool, and remove the pulley. loosen, but do not remove the nut on the high pressure hose connection. use a pair of **** pliers to cut and remove the crimp clamp on the low pressure hose. If your pump has the remote reservour loosen the clamp on the reservour hose also. Remove the three mounting bolts, place a large pan under the pump to catch drips, and remove the prevously loosened hoses. there will be fluid leaking all over and the pump should come free, There are two types of replacement pump sold. With and without reservour. This reservour is a metal cover that fits over the back of the pump, and should not be confused with the reomte revervour found on some newer models which is next to the battery. This reservour is held in place be two throught the pump bolts which are removed at the back of the pump. If your new pump has a reservour you will probably still need to remove these bolts and put them in the replacement pump as most are shiped without these bolts. If you replacement pump comes without a reservour pull the bolts, the reservour should pull off of the old pump and slide onto the new one. check the o rings and replace the through the pump bolts. Installation is the reverse of removal execpt that 1/2" hose clamps replace the crimp clamps on the low pressure hose, and the puller tool is set up differently to replace the pulley. Finally if you don't flush contaminants out of the system your repair will last maybe a week. www.cardone.com has a great article about power steering flushing, read it before you start Good luck.
