I need a cooling system diagram for 2001 Chevy blazer

Follow the top and bottom radiator hoses. Goes goes to the thermostat in a round about way which is right on the top of engine behind the EGR valve. Bottom hose goes right to the waterpump, easy access from underneath. The temperature sensor is located on drivers side mid engine. Look through drivers tire wheel well, you can see the sensor, brass fitting. A note, the top hose where it's attached to the thermostat is metal....tends to rust out, just get a new one and snake it back through there.

Car overheating

Two things to check:

1. Make sure you do not have an air bubble in your cooling system. Easiest way is to park facing uphill and let the car cool off. Remove the radiator cap, start the car and let run until the thermostat opens. If there are air bubbles in the cooling system the should be forced out. Top off fluid.
2. Are you sure that the cooling fan is running? When the car is getting hot, open the hood and make sure the radiator fan is actually turning.

Sounds like your thermostat is sticking closed at times, not allowing coolant to circulate through the radiator for proper cooling. Replace thermostat.

My 2001 ford focus is overheating it doesnt seem to be losing water and if i turn the heater on the temperature goes back down

you might want to see if the cooling fan is working at the radiator.if its not then the fan motor may be no putting the blower motor on you are giving the system air flow to pull heat out of the cooling system by it blowing air over the heater can remove the plug on the fan motor and connect jumper wires directly from power and ground to the connectors on the fan motor,if the fan doesn`t work then the cooling fan motor will have to be also could have a thermostat that is not opening all the way causing a rise in engine temperature.

My temputure gage goes up when UNLESS my a/c is running on HIGH. And then sometime even then. It is a 1999 land rover. Is it a major problem like last time?? Please help! :)

Check the cooling fans,they may not be running when the temp gets up to the 218 degree mark,they should come on by themselves,if not check the fluid level in the cooling system,and make sure the thermostat is not stuck shut,and bleed the air out of the cooling system,and last but not least,the coolant sensor could be the problem,if the cooling fans are good,and the cooling relay for the fans.

Temp gauge goes to hot and engine looses power.

hi.. your coolant temp sensor may be getting a bad reading, it also opperates as a compensator so it may effect the power of the vehicle.. check that the engine is actualy hot when it says and your car will probably run alot better if you change it anyway..

Car runs real hot

Make sure to use OEM parts and drain the air out of the cooling system. The 3.5 especially is very touchy regarding OEM and aftermarket waterpumps and thermostats for whatever reason. Simple solution to bleed out the air is to drive the car 5-10 mins without the pressure-cap.
