My truck keeps over heating after a new radiator and new water pump and new fan clutch and new thermostat and there isn't any water in the oil

Air lock find out where the bleed nipple is and undo carefully if engine hot and wait for the water to stop spitting and hissing ( like a kettle) Top up with water/antifreeze careful to pour slowly to avoid air bubbles accumulating.

The coolant is low, I refilled it. I replaced the thermostat. The heat gauge goes all the way to high when I am driving fast, but at idle it cools down to the temperature it should be. I stop at a red...

first thing i think is that when you changed the thermostat you didnt get all that air bubbles out of the cooling system. 2nd yes it would be the water pump. really simple as long as you havent overheated it head gasket would be fine

I have a problem with the heater on Ford Escort 1.9 TD. The fan works but blows cold air. Changed the water pump, the system is filled with liquid, but no heating. What could be the problem?

maybe the thermostat is bad if the upper and lower hoses are both hot that means your thermostat is open and you should have heat. there could just be air bubbles in the system some times their will be a bleeder near thermostat housing just open it while its running till all air comes out.or you are a little low on fluid.
the only other 2 thing i can think of is if your heater core is clogged try to flush it out,or if you have a blend door actuator or a vent control valve hooks to your heater hoses near heater core that is bad that normally opens and closes. a door or valve shutting the hot air from entering.sorry there is a lot of things that can cause your problems!

1997 ford escort 2.0L engine is overheating. it has a radiator that is 3 yrs. old, a new head gasket, re-machine heads, water pump and timing belt that are 2 yrs. old, new thermostat and several radiator...

try this,wearing rubber gloves(cos its hot)undo the topmost hot hose clip and expell any air trapped.also use a hotwire to check
electric fan(s) if fitted.if they run it aint they operate when idling and hot,if not then its the sensor.or if you have a viscous fan is that working.....when hot you will feel a resistance to turning by hand when the engine is stopped..another telltail that the thermostat is gone is,does the guage go down when you turn the fan on full heat for the interior??...cant think of anything else.....

Car seems to be running verry hot not steaming

make sure the electric fan is turning on. it it is not you can pull the wire from the plug that is next to the thermostat housing and it should turn on and run all the time, if it is not bad. Make sure your thermostat is not sticking closed.

Water bubbles and no heating new thermostat fitted

Water bubbles for a few different reasons, here are a coupleI your radiator cap is bad and no longer holding pressure; this would lower the boiling point of your coolant making boil over and bubbled or a bad head gasket and the gasses from the combustion chamber would leak in to the cooling system creating air pockets also keeping heat from blowing hot.

No heat coming out of blowers

there may be an air lock in the system make sure your heaters are switched to hot when bleeding the system and try again
