Radiator overheating


If the overheating is only occasional, it sounds like the radiator still has some blockage that moves around and plugs up again. Try flushing it backwards again. If it continues, consider a new radiator. A radiator is cheaper than head gasket work, which may happen if it keeps overheating.

2001 Honda civic overheating, losing coolant, damp passenger floorboard


Damp passenger floor sounds like a heater core. What a pain in the a__. Most probably the dash has to come out to replace. That is the only thing I know of that circulates engine coolant into the passenger compartment.
If you confirm this and want to fix it on the cheap, you can put a crossover hose in the engine compartment and bypass the heater core entirely. This is a $5 fix that works perfectly, mechanically speaking. Unfortunately, you will have no heat. Of course, you may decide that is a better option once you hear a quote on getting the heater core replaced.
Oh yeah, get a new mechanic.

A few weeks ago I had the upper hose go on me. It had a hole in it and leaked out all my coolant. My husband (while helping change the hose) gave it a big **** and ended up cracking my radiator. I had that...


Hi, you wern`t clear on the year and model of your Honda, and was the radiator and hose replaced by a sevice shop or yourselves? Possible causes of your car overheating may be caused by not ``bleeding`` the air out of the cooling system properly. Another problem may be a malfunctioning thermostsat, another problem may be the Electric rad fan not cycling on. There could be a few more causes but I would have to know more details of your car as mentioned above..

I know my 1992 dodge shadow needs a new thermostat but when it is overheating the radiator leaks from the bottom of the radiator does it have a pressure relief valve?


I dont think so, it maybe the bottom radiator tank. When the car is cold start it up for just a few seconds so the liquid can travel through the block the turn it off and look up underneath the front of the car.

It overheated, smoking and water pouring


If water poured out you probably busted a hose or radiator sprung a leak. Sounds like that and a bad thermostat or water pump went out.

Car Overheated - Won't Start


So, all we have to really diagnose the problem is that the car has overheated and it won't start even though there is a good battery in place and plenty of gas. I'm not there in person, so I'd rely on this handy, diagnostic article on this issue of yours, which clearly specifies the probable causes of this overheating; just go down the list to see if they apply to you: lack of radiator maintenance, faulty radiator overall, radiator tubes clogged, faulty fan, faulty water pump belt, faulty thermostat, leaking hoses, faulty exhaust system, or AC / radiator fins are damaged/misaligned. Check the article out for a better explanation:

THis should help solve your problem!

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.


Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.
