Ensure that fan is coming on. If fan is not working at all check fuses and test the fan.

If fan is OK but does not start, or start when already overheating, then replace the thermostat.

If the thermostat does not fix the problem, then your head gasket may be starting to go. Do a compression test.

Could a heater core make my truck over heat

Heater core will not do that, ever. it's just a water bypass to get the hot water to the inside. I think you may need to back-flush your radiator. Take upper and lower hoses off the engine. Stick a garden hose in the lower and seal it best you can. Hold the upper hose away from the engine and turn the water on for about 10 minutes or more. You'l see a lot of stuff come out that shouldn't be in there. Maybe even a wrench or 2(kidding). But that's how to back-flush a radiator. Luck toya bro.

I have a 2004 Toyota Sienna with a problem in the engine cooling system. I have had the radiator and thermostat replaced and it still overheats. It does not run out of coolant. Most of the time it will...

the problem might be the thermostat is stuck in the open position, not closed, this keeps the water circulating and its never in the radiator long enough to be cooled, which would explain the bubbling in the over flow tank, flush the system and add new coolant, replace the thermostat ,

I have a coolant leak springing from a T joint pipe that is connected by hoses, It seems to be a small hole that is causing the fluid to be sprayed onto the engine causing it to smoke. This happened...

Hi agentpayback, welcome, i think what your talking about is an after market item (reason you could not find a listing for it ) the purpose of it is to flush cooling system as the name implies ) from an auto parts store called a coolant system (radiator) flush kit, they are plastic and dont last for too long, its installed on the heater hose , 3/4 inch hose, (your radiator coolant runs thru the heater hose, thats how you have heat in the car in the winter ). get a new one and replace soon, it could get to be a bigger leak suddenly, keep it full of coolant in the meantime because you DO NOT want to over heat the engine. be sure to top off with coolant when finished installing new one and check for any new leaks and check the coolant level for next few days following until you know it is full. OK!!

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, it runs toooo hot, i have to keep my heat running even when we have warm weather!!! During the winter i have no issues with over heating. What is causing this?????

Your temp should run about 210 degrees (f) If you need to keep the heat on to keep the temp down likely the radiator is partially obstructed either externally (leaves or other debris) or internally (rust or calcium deposits).Most over the counter flushes don't do much but it's worth a try. Generally the best option is to have it professionally flushed or replace it with a known good one from a scrapyard.

No heat for me and my daughter 201 ford taurs everything you can think of has been done to this car please help

i hate no heat. ford taurus 2001 are a problem sometimes with heat issues.on the firewall there are heater hoses that get clogged,pinched,and sometimes it's just a bad heater core. you said everything you can think of has been done?[replaced heater core? flushed the radiator? are the cooling fans coming on? is radiator full of coolant? have you took the cap off to be sure?like i said,i hate no heat. i'm still thinking.thermostat new?the blower works but only blows cold air?ok if thermostats good,radiator is full,blower works,radiators full,cooling fans coming on, no engine overheating but temperature is fine,let's do this for a short winter time solution only!in the front of your car with the hood up.look at the radiator,ok,in front of the radiator,place a peice of cardboard in front of radiator on the bumper side. think i'm crazy right? try this. cut just a small peice of cardboard about half the size of the radiator and insert it in FRONT BUMPER SIDE of the radiator, this will give you emegency heat,it will have to come out when the temperature outside warms up because it will make your car overheat.for sure.but in cold weather,it's a sure thing to bring the heat up inside the car. you are restricting the air that flows through your radiator while the cars moving down the road,do not let car idle as it will heat up,as long as you're moving you will be safe,keep an eye on your temp. guage as you may have to make an adjustment to the size of the cardboard. yep i was a truck driver for many years and know so well how cold the road is. i kept my cardboard handy in the winter and never got cold. you do have an existing problem with your heat,and unless you deal with it soon,you'll need those cardboard boxes and duct tape for a minute.if you don't beleive me,try'll be toasty in no time,just watch that temp guage and you'll be fine. thank you for choosing and by the way,let me know how it works for you,i love to hear that i've assisted someone,somewhere.

Yes it is normal just no hot air

1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

Engine overheating

The coolant flush on radiator doesn't do any good. Since you have changed all the key components and still gotten overheated, then the root cause of the problem is the radiator. It got clogged up in small tubes blocking coolant flow. No matter how good the water pump is working but the radiator got clogged up, coolant is not circulating therefore the heat from the engine can't be dissipated to the radiator. Replace your radiator, don't even think about rebuild it. It has been used for 11 years. Make sure to have the correct coolant/water ratio to keep radiator life for years. Good luck.

Clunking sound and service engine soon light

Hi,this sounds like air in your engine coolent,circulating in to the heater core.This is very common ,to free the air let the engine run with the radiator cap off for at least 15 minutes or more some my splash out as the air comes out.The olny worry about this is to put a pan under the radiator cap area so as to not spill it on the ground ,cats ,dogs,children go after this because it taste sweet.This has to be it or in the A/C Heat blend doors thats all that moves behind your dash.there are wires miles of wires and vacume hoses ,relays ,switchs and the back side if radio and instrument cluster ,nothing else there to make noise .I hope this helps you .

I hear a gurgling sound behind my dashboard (sometimes) when I start my 00 Subaru Outback. I usually only hear it when its warming up. Could it be the heat core/coil? I just recently over heated...

that is air going through your heater core when your engine is cold start it up remove radiator cap turn on heater and keep filling radiator until it wont take anymore check it again tomorrow if it is low again get a pressure tester and you will have to find the leak if you cant see it dripping when it is pressured up or hot from runnung a while it might be a head gasket
to check this with cold motor remove rad cap and run motor till warm and look for small bubbles coming out of radiator

Engine light keeps coming on

Go to your local auto zone parts store, they have a free service where they will hook your car up to a dianostic computer and tell you what fault code is comming up. Then you can work on the correct problem. Also some cars have more than one O2 sensor, so it could still be a O2 sensor. Get the diagnostic check first. If you don't have a Auto Zone go to Advanced Auto, or start calling the part stores in your area and see if they offer this service, AMMCO offfers this service for free also.
