You may be air-locked ! - When the car is cold remove top hose on engine and fill with water until bubbles stop. warm engine up to run temp for short drive with heater on hot - then check level in reservoir tank, wait for engine to cool and top up, repeat until level stays constant. If this does not solve the problem then investigation into the thermostat and water pump are next. Hope this helps -= good luck

If your hoses are soft your problem may be that the bottom radiator hose is flattening when the engine is at normal running temp. & not letting enough water through,to check this get the engine up to normal running temp. & watch the bottom hose while you rev the engine to see if it flattens....hope this helps.....cheers

Coolant boiling


have a compression test done to determine head gasket or cracked head . Check that the fan is operational . IF viscous fan hub and the over heating occurs at idle at lights etc the replace the viscous hub. Have the radiator flow tested for blocked cores and if blocked replace it as flushing is a waste of time . Check hoses and if the hose is soft and enlarged past the clamps then replace them. Have the thermostat removed and checked for correct operation

Car overheating


You may have a blown engine head gasket. Check your oil to see if it is milky because water is getting into the oil, and check the water to see if oil is getting into the coolant.
If you have either of these, you may need to have a new head gasket for the engine, and hopefully you do not have a cracked engine head.
This will require a fair bit of work to fix correctly. Your local garage or mechanic may be your next call.
There are some products you can use in the coolant for either of these, but it is only a temporary fix.

Should my thermostat be removed?


No It is there for a purpose and the problem that makes you consider the removal of the thermostat should be fixed . It is there to bring the coolant to correct operating temperature as quickly as possible and then to regulate the flow through the radiator to maintain a constant temperature. The easiest check for a thermostat problem is to start the engine cold and let idle for around 10 minutes Place your hand on the top radiator hose and if the thermostat is ok you will feel the hot water start to flow through the hose. If you have the radiator cap off you will feel the water heat up and you may see the water start to flow as well.. Over heating problems can come from blocked or partially blocked radiator cores, leaking head gaskets or cracked head, thermostat, old soft hoses, timing , air/fuel mixture, blocked exhaust, overload /over speed , wrong gear resulting in excessive rpm's, coolant fan not working, viscous fan hub not driving fan, loose fan belt, blocked fins of the radiator( plastic-grass-mud)

I believe its the thermastat but I will tell you what my problem is so I can get the proper analysis. I have absolutely NO heat at all. Trying the thermastat replacement is the first thing I should do...


i wish you luck but is the temp staying in the usual place on the meter... could be as simple as a heater coil. or maybe the electronic control is not changing to flow water to heater core.. check engine light on?: turn heat on off on off on off to try to get it to change flow.. good luck

2006 gmc yukon heat will get warm if you gun the engine, but then will go cool at regular speed


Hello: Check the coolant level if the surge tank is not at proper level (threre is a full line on the container) If the container is low then you may have a leak in your cooling system.

Over heating changed trmo and water pump still over heats on highway


the radiator could be blocked either internally or externally you need to have a good look at the radiator core it may be blocked with insects or other matter,if so you may be able to flush it out with a garden hose from the inside, also check that the bottom radiator hose hasn't gone soft & flattens restricting the water flow,check this when the engine is at normal running temperature by revving the engine & watch to see if the hose is flattening, there are not too many other things that can cause this problem........cheers

sound like you have a clog in heater core or water valve (if it has one ) need to take off heater hoses and make sure it flows thru flush with water hose

The heat in my 1994 dodge caravan does not work. The van will heat up and then I try the heater sometimes it starts to then it fades to coolness.


Sounds like a partial plug in a heater hose or the heater core itself. There's not a full flow of water and it cools off faster than its replenished.The hot water valve may not be opening all the way either. Backflush the heater core,run water from a hose the opposite way it normally flows,Thru the core to clear it. Check hoses the same way. Also chech them for soft spots the hose may be collapsing internally.If the engine is not overheating the water pump is probably ok . if it is running a little too hot the thermostat may not be opening all the way either/ Replacing it could help too.
