HOW TO FLUSH AND RENEW COOLANT?


if the thermostat is in the head at the top radiator hose , remove it an fill the cooling system until the water is at that point --refit the thermostat and continue filling
make sure that the heater is turned on so that any air is moved out of the system

I changed my thermostat but that radiator symbol still comes on for my 2004 kia Amanti. When you replace the antifreeze do have to prime it someway brcause it doesn't seem to flow like it should.


I've dealt with this vapor-lock issue in multiple ways. One was to put an aspirin in the thermostat to hold it open. When disolved it would work properly. But want it open for a bit so that coolant can flow.
The other was to squeeze the radiator hoses to push coolant and work air into radiator so it could come to top of radiator. Another is to simply run it till warms up, shut it down and ad coolant to the reservoir.

How do I change the temperature coolant sensor in a 2007 pontiac torrent


Locate it near the thermostat. Which is on front of the motor following the the top radiator hose back to the motor . It stops on thermostat housing. The temperature sensor is in the top of the motor it's got a single plug wire with 2 wires in it. Unplug wires use a wrench turn it to the left unscrewing the sensor all the way out using Hi-tech review from the auto parts store red in color apply to the threaded end of the new sensor. Plug in the wires give the Rtv.time to dry. Remove the radiator cap check the coolant level then check the side of over - flow tank also level is marked on the side with a line that says high cold put radiator cap on pushing it down an turn to the right. Hope you are helped by this

2002 ford windstar sel overheating


first check coolant level in radiator coolant level sound low.if coolant overflow jug empty.coolant sysyem low, when add coolant to coolant overflow jug coolant level should stay at full cold mark.if coolant level okay,engine overheat while sitting or moving in slow traffic either coolant fan relay or fuse could be bad.or engine coolant temperature sensor could be bad. coolant sensor turn on cooling fan at certain temperature.hot wire check to make sure cooling fan motor not bad or short in wires.if all is good have pcm check it controls fan relay to through the coolant temperature sensor signal when coolant get hot.

Why does my car overheat? The mechanics don't even know...


There are multiple things it could be,thermostat,water pump,radiator,or your belt is loose.Is your coolant disappearing,having to refill,if so then water pump is leaking and needs replacing,if fluid okay,then maybe the thermostat isn't opening properly,but first check belt to see if it is turning tightly.Your radiator may be clogged and needing blowed out.

I replaced my radiator on my 2004 with a 2.2 and it seems like the thermostat is not opening. It can not get the air out. It seem to just to over heat and push the coolant out. Randy


REPLACE THERMOSTAT IF TOP COOLANT COOLANT HOSE GOING TO RADIATOR IS HOT TO TOUCH THERMOSTAT OPEN. TO BLEED COOLANT SYSTEM FIRST YOU NEED TO ADD COOLANT TO THE COOLANT OVER FLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING AND STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WAIT 3 MINUTES IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WITH RADIATOR OVER CAP OFF CRANK ENGINE FOR MINUTE WATCH COOLANT LEVEL AT OVERFLOW JUG.IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG.WHEN COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING IN OVERFLOW JUG.SCREW BACK ON THE RADIATOR CAP TO OVERFLOW JUG.WHILE ENGINE IDLING WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN TEMPERATURE START CLIMBING TURN OFF ENGINE WAIT A WHILE KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.WHEN COOLANT COOL DOWN SOME. PLACE A LARGE RAG OVER THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED, THEN REMOVE CAP ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG TO THE FULL COLD MARK.THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS SCREW BACK ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.THEN START ENGINE WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WATCH COOLANT TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN COOLANT TEMPERATURE START RISING TURN OFF ENGINE AGAIN WAIT UNTIL ENGINE COOL DOWN ENOUGH TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED TAKE PLACE LARGE RAG OVER RADIATOR CAP WHICH IS THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG CAP OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED ADD COOLANT UNTIL AT FULL COLD MARK. WHEN YOUR COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING.AND TOP RADIATOR HOSE VERY HOT THERMOSTAT OPEN AND AIR IS OUT THE COOLANT SYSTEM. MAKE SURE YOUR COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG HAS COOLANT IN IT,WHEN ENGINE COOL DOWN CHECK COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG KEEP COOLANT LEVEL AT FULL COLD MARK.BECAUSE IF OVERFLOW JUG IS EMPTY THATS A SIGN RADIATOR COOLANT LEVEL LOW.WHEN OVERFLOW JUG EMPTY IT WILL ALLOW AIR GET IN THE COOLANT SYSTEM AND CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT.WHEN REPLACING THERMOSTAT ALSO REPLACE THE RADIATOR CAP ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG.

2003 ford mustang, overheating, check engine light code of P1285 had checked and they said coolant fine...they want to put on a new thermostat and then said if that does not work maybe a new engine


This problem could be fixed by a new thermostat, however if this does not fix it then you may need a new head gasket or some deeper motor work ( which is why they want to do a new engine) most shops these days do not want to get onto motor work, the reason being is, it is expensive and timely, and often makes the shop "resposible" for every little problem that happens to the engine afterwards which isn't worth the trouble.

I keep overheating changed out thermostat and fan and still overheating I fill the hose with coolant and it all goes into the overfill tank and gets hot and boils out


A clogged radiator could be your problem. Flushing won't necessarily clean out a clogged radiator.
When it's idling and getting hot, the clutch fan should be running full on, actually "roaring" as some say, and the electric auxiliary fan or fans should be on if you have them. Also test your radiator cap, replace if needed. Hope this helps.

Radiator drain plug on a 2005 s-10 how get it off


The radiator drain valve is a couple of inches above the bottom of the radiator, on the passenger side of the car.
Insert a 1/4" drive ratchet into the center of the drain valve and loosened it about a half-turn. The center of the valve moves outward as it turns, and then coolant flows out through a drain hose.
I placed a dishpan under the front of the car to catch the coolant that flowed from the drain hose.
When closing the radiator drain valve, you need to push it inward and then tighten it. When fully closed, there is a small tab on the off-white center part that engages a slot in the black outer part.
Note that complete filling of the cooling system may be impossible until the engine gets hot enough to cause the thermostat to open and push out any air that may be trapped in the upper radiator hose. Many vehicles have a thermostat that opens at 190 or 195 degrees Fahrenheit (87 to 90 degrees Celsius).
On some vehicles I will run the engine for a while and watch the coolant inside the radiator. When the thermostat is closed, the coolant just sits there. Once the thermostat opens I can usually see the coolant moving across the radiator. BUT... the slanted radiator cap on the GMC Jimmy allows coolant to spill out, so I just install the radiator cap to the first "click", which covers the opening but doesn't seal the system.
Often after filling the cooling system it's necessary to "burp" the cooling system to get rid of any pockets of air. This can be done by running the engine for a few hours (or even a few days) with the radiator cap turned to the "first notch" which simply holds the cap in place while not forming a tight seal. Turning the radiator cap to the "second notch" forms the tight seal needed for proper pressurized operation.
The Jimmy's, Blazer's and S10's didn't seem to need any special burping procedures... I just ran it until the thermostat opened, added coolant to the radiator, and then topped up the coolant in the reservoir.
Good luck and hope this helps. If your having a hard time with the drain plug, just unhook the bottom radiator from the radiator and drain it that way.

run the engine until it gets warm. shut the vehicle down and let it cool off. top fluid off again. you may need to repeat this. after topping off run car while keeping an eye on the temp gauge, alson turn the heat on high, if coolant is not full heat wont work.
there is probably a "burp" screw or hose on the vehicle to allow filling while pushing all the air out, i'm just not positive exactly where it is on that vehicle.
