SOURCE: 1996 buick roadmaster keeps overheating:

A shotgun approach to repairs can really rack up the bills.

If your symptoms are loss of water and you have replaced the thermostat, you more than likely have an issue with steam. And that steam more than often comes from a bad head gasket. Most head gasket gasket failures seem to be confined to the water side initially, but let it go on bigger damage will occur.
You can buy a litmus test strip to dunk in the coolant. It will indicate if there are exhaust residuals in the water and thus a gasket failure.

However it may just be something simple, given that you have just about replaced everything:

have you given the radiator a good hosing inside and out?
is the radiator fan running when it should be?

SOURCE: The heater only blows luke warm air. Just replaced

Hello...

One of 3 things could cause this, that I know. The thermostat has been installed backwards. The water pump broke soon after install. Due to it being a rebuilt one. And a small clog in the heater core. All of these things are easy to fix.

Good Luck...

SOURCE: peugeot 306 1.4 overheating problem, heater not

Hi its the head gasket, you cant see no water in the oil on these engines like you normally can on most oil caps, pull the dip stick out and look on the bottom any sign of yellow gundge will be the head gasket, sometimes it is only a very small amount.

These cars always have the same problem, if i was you I would do the head gasket and waterpump at the same time, water pumps are only about £20 and wont add much to the bill if doing them at the same time.

As there is no water coing out of the bleed niple then it must be air locked somewhere, problem is when they get like this the gasket will blow anyhow.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

If it is fogging your windows, you have a leaking heater core. Dash removal is required to fix it.

98 ford ranger no heat have changed thermostat water pump heater control valve


Maybe the heater core is plugged or you haven't bled it properly?
If the heater hose returning from the core to the water pump is NOT hot, while the hose going to the heater core from the thermostat area IS hot, then the heater core is plugged probably.
You need to remove the heater hose while cool,from the thermostat area and remove the hose from the water pump area (that's the outlet of the flow thru heater core) AND THEN take a garden hose with p-is-tol grip type sprayer,and blow water back thru the outlet hose out the inlet hose. This will blow any bad plugging material out the way it got in.
Don't apply too much pressure if it is plugged bad. The heater core isn't made to stand 50lbs. water pressure. don-ohio (:^)

The metal section is part of the water pump. You can just replace the rubber section of hose.

Heater blows hot then starts cooling down


Sounds like a plugged heater core or weak water pump.
Take the heater hose loose from thermostat area and the other hose loose from water pump inlet,and reverse flush water from a water hose from the water pump heater hose,assuring that the hose end from the thermnostat outlet is pointed downward away toward the ground.
I always tie a loose WHITE rag around this end so I can see what debris is backflushed out.If very little debris,you probably have a weak water pump after all.
The backflush is a good thing though.

Defrost will not come out vents


Check your coolant level first. Next check your heater control valve. With engine at operating temp and heater on high, do this:

1. Heater hose from water pump should be hot (if not, water pump may be dead or thermostat is stuck closed)
2. Heater hose from thermostat housing should be hot (if not, thermostat may be stuck closed or water pump is dead)
3. Heater hose going to heater core should be hot ( if not, heater control valve is not getting vacuum from heater control unit, or valve is broken)
4. Heater hose returning from heater core should be hot (if not, heater core is blocked, undo both hoses to core and flush with water hose until clear)

Test thermostat: with cold engine cranked, watch water temp gauge. As it gets hotter and hotter, when the thermostat opens, the temp should drop suddenly and then go back up.

Test water pump: with engine at operating temp. Squeeze top radiator hose tight, when you release it, you should feel/hear a surge of water. It is much like when you pinch a water hose closed and release it.

Test vacuum from heater control unit to heater control valve: undue vacuum line from control valve. It should have a vacuum when pressed against you skin in addition to releasing the actuating arm on the control valve.

If there is no vacuum, a quick fix will be to disconnect the plastic actuator from the silver arm on the heater valve. This will let the hot water to always flow to your heater core.
