If i put water in my radiator does that fix the problem?


Depends on what the problem is here. If your radiator is low then yes adding water to top it off is needed to keep the engine from over heating. You will need to add antifreeze to it as well. Not just water.

My 2008 avenger 2.4 liter is over heating after changing both thermostats and the heater is blowing cold air and making it over heat more...


While it's cool aka before a cold start. Open the radiator cap and see if the radiator is flowing water through it. If not then your radiator is clogged... And of course if its dry a least add water and if possible add fresh coolant

Check list for answers to my Montero overheating...


Methods to trouble shoot
(1) check thermostat device. if thermostat is stuck - not working half the water used in cooling system is missing once engine heats up which can lead to over heating. (may need mechanic to check this)
(2) check radiator has water in it . if it is low there may be a leak in cooling system somewhere check rubber hose and radiator are not leaking.
(3) check fan belt is engaging fan in front of radiator
(4) if electric fan check if fan activates once car has heated up
(5) check oil level of engine on dip stick. If low oil add some oil and re check oil dip stick. DO NOT PUT whole oil pack in (don't laugh I know someone who did this and has to go to mechanic and get oil removed)
(6) if rubber hoses blow off connectors then you may have a broken head gasket seal. A pressure test of the radiator will confirm this.
(7) Possible water pump failure. Check by taking cap off radiator and run engine see if water is flowing in radiator and test if water is heating up in the radiator. Remember to put cap back on radiator when finishing test.
(8) check if bubbles or oil are in radiator water this could indicate a blown head gasket problem also.

No more Heat!!


Look for an air block in the heater core, or a water valve in the heater hoses that may be closed. The normal way to purge air from the coolant system is to run the engine with heater on high heat, and with the radiator cap off, until the thermostat opens and the engine is at normal operating temperature. Then shut off engine, top up the radiator and overflow tank, and replace the radiator cap. If hot coolant is still not circulating through the heater core, you may have to get inventive and crack the outlet line loose to get flow started.

Coolant is a rusty milkshake consistency


if you do not see any obvious leaks under the car and you are still adding water to it, you might have a cracked head gasket which is causing coolant to go into cylinders. If this is the case, this can cause more problems.

My temp guage just shot up to past the H, my coolant is empty. Do I just wait for car to cool down and add water to radiator or add coolant at any time, or both?


DON'T PUT WATER IN IT HOT!!! You need to wait a few hours to add water water, the engine should be cool to the touch. Or if you can heat several gallons of water to around 170 degrees or so you could add to the system hot. This is also dangerous since that hot of water can burn you. Adding cold water to hot metal you run the risk of cracking your engine, or at least your radiator. Best of luck hope this helps.

I only have heat when I step on the gas.


does the fan speed up when you step on the gas, or does it blow a consistent speed, just warmer when the engine rpms go up? If it blows faster when you step on the gas, it's just a battery or alternator issue. you start by replacing the battery then testing the alternator. on the other hand, if the fan speed is consistent and the air coming out of the vents gets warmer when you step on the gas, the issue may be with your water pump.

How to replace thermostat on


Do this when cool. Take radiator cap off, start the engine, turn on heat (not defrost) and now top up coolant to about an inch or 2 from top of radiator, as level drops down, and let vehicle run until the radiator fan comes on, then off, about 3 times, and add coolant as needed while it's running. After that, put radiator cap back on tight & make sure return bottle is filled to proper level. Now try that & see how heat is, temperature gauge etc, and keep an eye on return bottle level for a while. Let me know how it is.

Over heating and loss of coolant


Need to check your radiator flow, and thermostat, start the engine cold, with radiator cap off, watch for the water in the radiator, when it starts to bubble over let it, keep water hose close, radiator should blow back till the thermostat opens, the water will go down, and add more water if needed, and put the cap back on,,,, if your thermostat is stick closed it will cause over heating......and you may have to have it replaced.
