Since the car is still running hot after the replacement of the radiator housing,the other part that might be responsible for this problem is the water pump.
The solution is to check and replace the water pump if necessary.
Please ensure to check the pipe/hose connection leading to the radiator before replacing the water pump..

Thank you.

93 GMC Safari overheating. This happened spontaneously. Runs hot very quickly when I drive it. There is antifreeze in both radiator and overflow res, overflow res fills up more after driving a bit. ...

It would appear your thermostat is stuck in the closed position , find where it is on your engine, drain coolant and remove thermostat housing and stat, replace housing(liquid gasket OK) and coolant. now run engine, turn heater controls to hot leaving filler cap off, top up any water to max and replace cap now warm up to temp until fan comes on. if all ok replace thermostat with a new one and new gasket, you could also flush the sytem out at the same time with a hose pipe by loosening one of coolent pipes and flush radiator.

Where is thermostat on 2000 kia sephia runs hotter as rpm's increase runs a little cooler as rpm's decrease no coolant leaks 1 of the 2 fans is running when hot

Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. Where it connects to the engine is where you'll find the thermostat. It's under a housing...should be two or three bolts holding the housing down. Don't forget to replace the gasket.

Cooling fan is on all the time

There are only a couple reasons for the cooling fan running constantly. Either the temperature sensor is faulty or the car is running to hot.
In most cases it's the car running to hot. There are several possible causes for this.

  • Corrosion build up in the radiator and engine water jacket.
  • Incorrect radiator fluid/water ratio.
  • A faulty thermostat.
The first thing that should be done is to drain the radiator and refill it with water and a radiator flush.
A good indication of corrosion in the system will be a brown color to the fluid that was first drained.
Once you have allowed enough time for the flush to do it's job. Drain it and refill with water. Run the engine for 10 more minutes and then drain it again. Now refill it using the correct radiator fluid and water ratio.
If the problem persists the next thing to do is replace the thermostat.
This is relatively simple to do and can be completed in under an hour with basic tools.
The thermostat is located on the engine where the large radiator house is attached. Undo the hose clamp and any bolts holding the thermostat housing on. Once you pull that off you will see the thermostat. Replace it, making sure to install the new one the same way the old one comes off. Now reinstall the housing and house.
If this doesn't take care of the issue you may need to seek a mechanic for help.
I hope this helps.
