A lot of the time the core in the radiator are partly pluged. The radiator needs boiled out or replace the radiator. One other item that can cause problems is old hoses. The bottom hose could be collapasing under pressure and the radiator cap could be at the wrong pressure setting.

What can cause it to over heat? the temperature gage only goes three quarters of the way?


A true overheat is when the coolant is bubbling back into the coolant recovery tank. #1 radiator cap not holding pressure #2 stuck thermostat #3 restricted air flow #4 bad fan clutch #5 bad waterpump #6 restricted water flow in radiator #7 blown head gaskets this is the end results to a overheated engine .

My 2001 malibu 6 cyl heater blows cold air on heat setting changed thermostat waterpump idling pulley reservoir cap and flushed lines


Can you check/feel along your hoses from the engine towards the radiator when hot. It should obviously be uniformly hot, Suddenly going cold would indicate a blockage. Same check through the radiator and back to the engine, obviously it will cool through the rad but if it goes stone cold after the rad then that still indicates a blockage which coupled to the over heating is a prime suspect. If you've lost any water then it could be air locked and need properly bleeding. Jon

Your radiator cooling fan will only come on when the engine temp has reached the point where it needs to have air forced through the radiator and thus bring engine heat back down to safe operating range. If your heater is not working check to make sure the fresh air vents aren't stuck open (are the controls stiff or not going all the way across?) check also that the heater shutoff valve lever which is usually situated on the firewall at the rear of the engine and can be found easily by tracing the hoses back from the thermostat housing aren't bent and/or seized up.

Wait till the engine is cold, remove the radiator cap, start engine and look for coolant gushing out of radiator or a lot of bubbles, its possible you have a blown head gasket.

I put a new thermostat in my 1994 ford escort,and still dont have warm heat while my heater is on. How do I test to see if I have a bad waterpump?


If it where your water pump isthe vehicle would overheat. After you replaced the thermostat do you run the engine at idle with the radiator cap removed until the radiator fan came one? This will help push the air out of the system. There are two other possibilities. 1. The heater core is plugged. Back flushing the heater core may help remove the built up debris and get you heat again. 2. The blend door may not be fully transitioning from cold to hot. You should be ale to hear a district change in how the air sounds when switching from full hot to full cold. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

Check the waterpump and thermostat. When the waterpump doesn't turn, engine heat is not transported to the radiator. When the thermostat doesn't open once warm the same happens - no engine cooling.

The radiator should be hot op top and cooler at the bottom. If it's cold allover then there's no cooling fluid transport

If it is a regular fan, check the fan clutch. If it is an electric fan, make sure it is coming on. Other than that you might be sure the AC condenser that sits in front of the radiator is not plugged up with grass, bugs, etc...

Car over heating. tempature gauge fluxuates


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading

Check or have the electric cooling fan or fans checked, to see if they are coming on, and the radiator cap checked. You've done everything else.
