No it is not. But then when you have it flushed they take out the thermostat which you need to heat up water and then the fans come on via a heat sensor on the block or thermostat housing.

Hi i have a plymouth scamp 1972 slant 6 thats overheating replace the water pump ,thermostat radiator cap ,radiator no oil in coolant or coolant in oil or exhaust fumes in radiator.i got alittel rust out...

Chances are you have a pinhole leak at the headgasket. This may not be enough while the car is idling to smell, especially being carburated. The other possibility is that you're running WAY lean. (Too much fuel) through the carb. Headgasket is more likely. O

1990 honda accord ex overheating fans not turning on, tested sensor conectors with jumper and fans come on.starts overheating at stoplights but temperature drops to normal while driving. have been told...

You will have to replace the fan sensor. If the fans are not working then the temperature will rise when stopped and cool down when running because of the air coming through he radiator.
A head gasket leak will show up by lose of water and bubbles in the radiator, with it topped up to the neck of the filler. Worst indication is water in the oil and out the exhaust.

The water tank boils a lot when the car is driven for about 15 to 20 minutes and it begins to spill out. this prevents the cars from running smoothly and easily. what should be done to solve this problem?

First check to make sure you have no oil reidue in your cooling system. What you describe is a common symptom of a blown head gasket or other combustion chamber leak. Also check your oil and make sure it doesn't have a milky appearance. If both of those check out, run the car with the radiator cap off and let it get up to normal operating temperature. You should see the coolant flowing through the radiator. If you don't see the flow at normal operating temperature, suspect the thermostat. When the car reaches normal operating temperature, the fan should also cycle on and off. If it doesn't check your fuses and relays to make sure they're OK. If they're good, try applying a seperate 12V source to the fan. If it powers up then suspect the fan's thermostatic control. Good luck.

Engine violently overheating. New thermostat, new radiator cap, just did a flush, and has new coolant. What should I check next

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to make sure your fans are working properly. If they are not, check the fuses. If the fuse is good, test the fan and the wires to the fan for current. You could have a bad water pump or water pump impeller. It may be a bad head gasket. Make sure the radiator is working correctly. Make sure that there are no leaks on the engine. Start the vehicle and inspect the engine for leaks. Check your oil and make sure coolant is not inside it. It is possible for it to leak inside.

How do you flush rusty water out of the radiator on my 2004 LeSabre

Its best to replace radiator. You can purchase a flush kit from Auto Zone and back flush the system ( meaning go against the normal flow of coolant with a garden hose). But Rust usually means Radiator seen better days and you don't want this stuff causing problems around the head.

How long do you have to run the engine before the radiator fan cuts on... We flushed the radiator and ran the car for a 1/2 hour but the fan still didn't cut this normal

The fan will only come on at a preset temperature. If you don't reach this temp the fan wouln't come on. I had a 1998 olds and took it back to the dealer because I had never heard the fan come on. As long as the temp does not gotoo high it is normal

Jeep Grand Cherokee running hot. I've changed the

Check your radiator for external and internal obstructions (leaves, bugs etc on the a/c condenser or leaves between the condenser and radiator, rust or calcium deposits inside the radiator core all cause loss of heat transfer)
Also make sure that the system is full and that the electric fan and the clutch fan are operating properly. (electric fan should come on just above normal operating temp and clutch fan should not be "freewheeling" above temp either)
Note: If you need to have the radiator flushed, do it separately from the engine. especially the inline 6 and 4 engines rust up inside and if the system is flushed with the radiator connected, the debris will pack up inside it and actually can worsen the condition.

I have an intermittant overheating problem with my 2000 jeep grand cherokee. It only happens when sitting in traffic or at a drive thru. I have replaced the thermstat, fan relay module and coolant sensor....

Once the radiator fan operates when hot, then that part of the system is fine. It definitely sounds like the radiator needs flushing out. I had this same problem with a taurus and I flushed the radiator out for a good twenty minutes; you should have seen the stuff that came out! Disconnect the lower hose and drain **** then stick the garden hose in the radiator cap. I would surely do this.

Is my radiator deffective?

No this is not normal. Have you had a look at the water pump? It might pay to have the system pressure tested as there may be a leak that is happening while you are driving...
