The manufacturer most likely will not honor the warranty ,the best thing to do,is either have it repaired if possible,or replace it with a new one from an auto parts store.

My 1999 dodge caravan is still overheating. I have already replaced the thermostat and the water pump, also there is no heat. please help me someone!


Hi there.
Well you can either have a problem with either radiator outer {dust/dirt in outer core of radiator or clogged up inside were water goes, or soft hoses,blowen head gasket plus a few others ,but first go to garage to were you blow up your tyres and use the air hose and blow out the radiator core where the air goes in, 2 drain out radiator water and then refill with water at 1 ltr at a time and then check your info car book and find how much water the radiator takes ,if it dosent take all the ltrs then the radiator is blocked inside.
if engine runs rough missing etc then get your Head gasket checked out.
When you say no heat is that with heat on gauge or no heat from heater, as it could be heater blockage same as radiator core. So let me know how you get on.

How to replace a Jeep Cherokee Charge


Replacing a thermostat on most any car can be done with little auto repair experience. The thermostat is always in a visible and reachable spot. The Jeep Cherokee is even easier because the thermostat rests at the very top of the motor. The thermostat is a small piece that helps regulate the temperature of a vehicle.

Things You'll Need
Thermostat with gasket and gasket sealant
Accessories
Pliers
Flathead screwdriver
Mechanic's glove
Step 1
Park the vehicle in the shade on a flat surface. Turn the Jeep off and raise the hood. Let it sit and cool off for at least one hour.
Step 2
Slowly remove the radiator cap by twisting it with a thick towel. This will absorb any excess heat and pressure fluids. Be sure to wear your gloves. When removing the cap, extend your arm, creating maximum distance between you and the Jeep and turn your face away for safety precautions.
Step 3
Place an empty 2-gallon bucket under the very front end of the Jeep. Lay down under the front end of the Jeep and locate the bottom of the radiator. Look for a small, twist-off plug near the end of the radiator. It should read "Drain Plug." Place the bucket directly under the plug, and slowly remove it. Allow the antifreeze to drain completely.
Step 4
Place a water hose in the top of the radiator and turn it on. Turn on the car and allow the water to run through the radiator and cooling system for five to 10 minutes. This is called flushing the radiator, something you always should do before replacing the thermostat.
Step 5
Turn off the vehicle. Don't reattach the radiator cap or the drain plug.
Step 6
Locate the wide black hose directly under, or connected to, the radiator cap. Follow the hose to the end, which will be the motor. Using your pliers, squeeze the ends of the hose clamps together and pull it back. This will release the grip pressure.
Step 7
Wiggle off the hose. Let the excess fluid drain. The thermostat will be exposed. Unscrew the two nuts securing the thermostat to the motor. Using a flathead screwdriver, drive a wedge between the thermostat and the motor, popping it out.
Step 8
Peel off the blue or black gasket that was sealed to the motor. It should come off easily.
Step 9
Place the new gasket on with the provided sealant. Screw the new thermostat on, precisely in the location and pattern that you removed the old one. Wiggle the black hose back on and secure it with the hose clamp.
Step 10
Put the drain plug back in snugly. Fill up the radiator with a gallon of a solution that is half antifreeze, half water. Turn the Jeep on to circulate the antifreeze. Check for leaks near the thermostat and the drain plug. While the Jeep is running, add another gallon of the antifreeze/water solution. This should completely top it off. Place the radiator cap on, and you're done.

Ok Please help!! I am leaking antifreeze. I have had the radiator replaced, waterpump, bottom hose of the radiator, and it still leaks. I am finding it leaks while I am driving. Please help


There is a thing that you attach to the top of the radiator that you pump up and it will pressurize the radiator, and leaks will show up right away.
It is called a radiator tester.
I suspect your problem is one of your heater hoses is leaking, They are harder to see because they are in the back of the motor.
Be blessed.

How do you put radiator in 1999 hyandai accent


1) Drain radiator by removing cap, and bottom radiator drain bung or bottom hose.
2) Remove top hose.
3) Disconnect the radiator fan's wiring and any temperature sensor wiring if fitted.
4) Remove radiator retaining clasps
5) Disconnect radiator bottom hose.
6) If fitted with an auto box, then remove automatic gearbox oil pipes (Underside)(you might wat to clasp these so they don't leak oil everywhere)
7) Remove radiator expansion bottle feed pipe from top of radiator.
8) Ease out the radiator. If the radiator fan is getting stuck or caught up, then drop the radiator back down and remove the fan first after disconnecting from the radiator body.
9) With new and old radiator placed side by side on a soft surface, change across any components from the old radiator, which didn't come with the new one. These may or may not include such things as: cap, fan retaining screws or clips, bottom radiator seating rubbers, rubber fan shrouding, temperature sensor, top and bottom rubber hoses.
10) Rebuild by reversing the above instructions. Apply silicone pipe sealant to top and bottom hose locations. Make sure you clean and/or replace any heavily corroded metal pipes which connect to the radiator. (Now is also a good opportunity to replace the thermostat to be on the safe side)

11) Fill system with a fresh 50/50 water/antifreeze mix, flush out and refill expansion bottle. Just before you refill the system, turn the interior heater setting up to maximum heat, but do not start the vehicle.
12) Top radiator up to max. Gently massage the top radiator hose to help eliminate air from the system.
13) Once filled, start the car. Pay attention to the temperature. Keep topping up the radiator as bubbles come around the system and the coolant level drops. At the point no more bubbles appear, close off the radiator with the cap. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature. If the weather is cold you may want to hold the engine at around 2,500 revolutions to help build heat faster. Keep it running until the radiator fan kicks in, then let it idle for a couple of minutes.
14) Stop the engine and let it cool.
15) Once cool, open the radiator cap and top up again if level is low.

16) Road-test the vehicle. After returning check again for any leaks.


Running the car for the first few days after radiator replacement, check the radiator level and expansion bottle level every day for the first two or three days. This level may drop slightly as any trapped air pockets are pushed out while running. Also, it is possible that any small leaks may begin after adding fresh anti-freeze to the system. If you begin loosing fluid over these first few days, then re-inspect your work and run a cooling system pressure test.

My coolant is rapidly disappearing, and I have no clue why?


IF YOU GOT TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM AND DONT HAVE 50 / 50 MIXTURE OF ANTIFREEZE AND WATER. WATER WILL EVAPORATE BOIL AWAY.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS LOOK AT TOP AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES LEAKS, CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND BOTH RADIATOR CONTAINER AND RADIATOR CORES LEAKING. CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE. IF LEAKING WATER NEED REPLACING, CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE ANTIFREEZE WILL LEAK IN CRANK CASE OR LEAK IN THE INTAKE GASKET COOLANT WILL BURN WITH FUEL.MANY THINGS WILL CAUSE COOLANT LOST.

Coolant leak


Hello **** B. First double check the hose connection for the leak, it can drain to another connection & appear to leak there. Second, yes there is a gasket on the pipe connection to the block. To replace the gasket, park the car in a location for least 5 to 6 hours to cool down mabe longer. Have the gasket replacement, a tube of gasket sealant, 2 gallons of antifreeze, a drain bucket, and a very large rag or rags. Remove the hose, catch the fluid in bucket, remove the pipe, clean the old gasket area, apply gasket sealent, attache gasket, mount the pipe, tighten all mounting bolts a 1/2 to 3/4 turn each until torqued downed evenly, and attache hose. Fill reservoir, with radiator cap off, start engine and add coolant to radiator until full and you see fluid flowing. Apply cap & check for leaks. Easy???????? Good Luck.

1990 Toyota Cressida Antifreeze leaking badly


Your cooling system is what keeps your car from having a meltdown. If you didn't have some way to cool things off, your engine would turn into a solid block of useless metal in no time flat. All of the parts that make up the cooling system have one goal of moving coolant around the engine so it can absorb and dissipate heat. The basic system is made up of the following components:
  1. radiator
  2. radiator top hose
  3. radiator bottom hose
  4. water pump
from your problem u stated
Checking for the problem I saw some a lot of antifreeze on the bottom of my engine covering or whatever it is (not the hood).
looking at the parts involved its probably not burning in the engine unless the car has overheated to much, it sounds likes its one of ur delivery or return hoses from the motor that is leaking. do a close attention to detail to your hoses and components related to the cooling system, u may not see the leak from the top since gravity will draw the fluid down

Oil Leak


The oil leak at bottom of radiator could be oil cooler and/or supply hose. Try check closely for wettest area .
The other leak could be thermostat cover, it only uses a sealing ring and is prone to leaking after time.
