Carefully feel the radiator directly after shutting the engine off it should be hot at the top and get generally a little cooler as you go down from side to side with no cold spots, if there is a cold spot the radiator is plugged and needs to be cleaned or replaced. Do you have a fan shroud? Check your thermostatic clutch on the fan blade does it wobble? Any of these can cause overheating. Hope this helps.

Temp gage in my 03 impala goes up when I turn AC on, and transmission acting like it doesn't want to change from 2 to 3 what's wrong?'

Temp gauge going up means your engine is getting hot, lol. Check for worn belt, oil on belt, bad thermostat or water pump. Fix this first, then check for vacuum leaks Have you changed trans fluid and filter in last two years? Ever?

My truck is running hot i changed out the water pump an thiermastat an put a new radatior in it

How hot is it running? Does the temp gauge go all the way to or past 'H'? When it gets hot does it boil over either into the overflow or on the ground?
  1. Check for water in your engine oil by looking at the color of the oil on your dipstick. If it is white or creamy looking you may have a blown head gasket.
  2. Check for oil in the water by removing your radiator cap (when the engine is cool) and see if there is a noticeable amount of oil in the water.

2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

88 Bronco ii Coolant not circulating

Good Day,

Sounds like the thermostat is working properly, the only other cause for the valve/lifter noise could be the oil pump is not pumping enough oil up to the top of the motor. I suggest doing an oil change(if you haven'y aleready), be sure to flush several quarts through, after sitting for 5 years I'm sure the old oil is pretty sludgy, this well help rule out this possibilty. As far as the water pump goes, It either works or doesn't typically when they are on there way out the will leak from the gaskets. A bad head gasket would cause white smoke form the exhaust as coolant get's into the oil and is burned off, so I don;t hink this is the problem.

Here's a start for you, hope this helps and good luck
