Rarely the water pump, unless it leaks. Often the thermostat is the culprit. on the rad, run vehicle, to warm, then turn off enging and feel around on the cooling fins of the rad. Cold = blocked areas. A shop can flow test for you, but at that point, replace rad, they fail and leak.

Flush the cooling system.

94 Econoline Van Overheats when under load but drives fine when it's not.


Radiator could be blocked or partial. Best way I check for that is to use a temp laser gun and check the fins of the radiator for temp differences. And has stop leak ever been used?

Van is over heating when I go past 60 mph


Check the radiator is it clean and not rusty and has good flow? Look in the front of the Radiator or AC core and see if a bag is blocking it or any caked mud or dirt. Repair what you find. If the radiator is full of rust remove it and have it cleaned by a radiator repair shop or better yet just replace it. Make sure the thermostat is working good, replace it if it has never been replaced. There is also a slight possibility the impellers on the water pump ware rusted off.

95 ford conversion van with a 351 engine. replaced the radiator, water pump and thermostat last year. The water pump leaked when cold and finally replaced water pump and thermostat again. Got the leak...


If you didn't do a thorough cooling system flush with the radiator replacement last year, then i would say you may have excessive build up of rust, scale and other debris. This will certainly clog up a new radiator quickly. You may still have a restriction. I would do a good flushing, including REVERSE flushing until water runs clear. This should help... Good luck, my friend.

OVERHEATING


This could be a multitude of things:

Stuck closed thermostat.

Cooling fan not coming on.

Clogged radiator.

Low on coolant.

Water pump failing/leaking.

Head gasket blown, leaking exhaust into antifreeze.

Clogged catalytic converter.

Thermostat: If the Van heats up, then feel the upper radiator hose. If it's cold, then your thermostat is closed. Replace thermostat.

Coolant: If low, simply fill with distilled water and coolant. Low levels will let engine over heat.

Radiator: If there are cold-to-the-touch spots on the radiator after it should be warmed up, then a clogged is probably occuring. Have radiator flushed.

Head Gasket: If you smell exhaust fumes in your coolant reservois tank, then you got a blown head gasket.

Cat Converter: Only can be tested if off the car. Or you could try a non-contact thermometer. These are also good to testing cold spot on radiator or if thermostats are open.

Cooling fan: If mechanical it'll be spinning. If electrical, it should come on automatically with the A/C, or when it gets hot.

Water pump: Will be leaking from the front if it needs replaced. On a van, it's a tough job.

Good luck!

Toyota estima 2.2 td 1992 van overheating


the impellors in the water pump are prone to corrosion,especially if no or incorrect radiator additives have been used .this will cause water to stay in motor & boil whilst the water in the radiator stays cold because it cannot circulate.try flushing radiator ,installing a new thermostat (which is more than likely not opening )& radiator cap,refil with correct additive,.if the car still over heats then you will need to replace the water pump.bugger!!

Why won't my 1992 Ford Econoline van start


I suspect the fuel pump has stopped working, check the fuel pressure or listen to the noise it makes by taking off the gas cap and listening for a humming noise when the key is turned on, this will stop after a few seconds.
