If your putting straight water in the system it could be boiling off and evaporating. Put a 50 / 50 mix of water and Anti Freeze in the radiator and it should reduce this. Another possible solution is a possible problem with you head gasket or Possibly the block it itself. Do a compression check on all cylinders and make sure the compression on all cylinders is withing 5 to 10 lbs when the engine is warm. If it is a low compression issue you need a valve job or valve adjustments if it is a high compression situation, 11 lbs or more compression on 1 cylinder than all the rest you have a Blown Head Gasket or Cracked Cylinder or Head assembly. This type of situation needs to be repaired as soon as possible.

02 ford explorer 4.0 overheating and suddenly blowing cold air, then hot again while engine runs cool but not long


Most likely you have air trapped in your engine, particularly in the heater loop. You need to properly bleed the air out of your radiator cooling system. The hot and cold blasts of air coming from first hot water followed by air.
Read up on how to bleed air out of your radiator system. Some systems are very difficult to bleed.
If after doing a good bleed of the radiator system the problem returns, you may have a bad head gasket or other leak in your cooling system which is injecting air into the cooling system (radiator/water cooling system).

My coolant is rapidly disappearing, and I have no clue why?


IF YOU GOT TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM AND DONT HAVE 50 / 50 MIXTURE OF ANTIFREEZE AND WATER. WATER WILL EVAPORATE BOIL AWAY.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS LOOK AT TOP AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES LEAKS, CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND BOTH RADIATOR CONTAINER AND RADIATOR CORES LEAKING. CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE. IF LEAKING WATER NEED REPLACING, CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE ANTIFREEZE WILL LEAK IN CRANK CASE OR LEAK IN THE INTAKE GASKET COOLANT WILL BURN WITH FUEL.MANY THINGS WILL CAUSE COOLANT LOST.

you may need to check/raise the quality of the parts you are buying. You dont say what engine you have? if the radiator cap is incorrect or bad, it may have too much pressure on the cooling system.

Ford Explorer 2006 Overheating


Who determined that the water pump and radiator needed to be replaced? If it was the dealer or an independent garage, bring it back and tell them they guessed wrong. You paid to have the problem fixed and they need to stand behind their work.

This is a problem that's hard to diagnose without being able to check a lot of items and ask questions, but the obvious things to look for if you have a new radiator and water pump (and hopefully a new thermostat) is for air in the cooling system which keeps the coolant from circulating. Also check to see that the cooling fan(s) are operating properly.

Water heating radiator and water expulsion oily reddish color


Sounds like you have transmission fluid in the antifreeze. The transmission cooler might be leaking in the radiator. If it is, replace the radiator.
