Good Evening, you are doing all the right things. However have you tried flushing the heater core, most times the heater core itself can have some build up inside and you get no heat in the cabin. The first thing to do is to check the heater hoses if one is hot and the other is not then I would look there. Second I would also check inside at your blend door and see if it is switching over when you move it from cold to heat. Those would be the places to start. Hope this helps.

There are other things to test before we have the engine spread all over the yard. Cooling fan operation. Yes the thermostat hot air in heater just means hot water. start with a cold engine then start and run at a high idle if heats quickly upper radiator hose hot lower cold good but reverse no flow. remove and test thermostat (not replace) put on stove boil water and watch it open once center piece is moving check with thermometer it should agree with stamp number on thermostat. if good check for slipping fan belt. check for air restrictions on radiator and water flow.

Start the engine and warm up. Feel the upper and lower radiator hoses while it is warming up. You should feel heat suddenly in one of the hoses-usually the top hose. If it does not get hot but the engine get hoter than 1/2 way up the guage then you have a bad thermostat.

My radiator on my 1994 toyota hilux sulf is over heating just sarted in last few days. Temperature gauge fluctuates when i turn air conditioning on.how do i fix this


First check if you have any leaks in the cooling system , then check if level is correct(radiator and expansion tank , check level when car is cold , never open radiator when it's hot).
Then verify operation of radiator fan , if it's electrical fan it should comes on when temp. goes over normal,
if it's a clutch fan- it should pick up a speed and be more loud. If fan is not on and engine is starting overheating , check upper and lower radiator hoses.
If upper hose hot and lower hose cold or warm then you might have stuck close or prtially closed thermostat , difference between lower and upper hoses when t/stat works ok is about 10-15 degrees,
not really noticeable for hand.So if you don't feel a lot of difference between hoses temp. , and fan is not on , check fan or fan clutch itself.
If lower hose cold , replace thermostat and purge system.
If everything above is working properly , and it's still overheating , you may have bad water pump or head gasket.

I have a '99 acura 2.3 cl, the engine runs hot but it does not over heat. taken to several mechanics and they cannot figure it out. the dashboard instrument shows it's getting ready to over heat but it...


First of all you need to verify with an actual thermometer.
For example, the sensor to the gauge may be off.

The way to check the thermostat is to feel both hoses on a cold engine, then feel one slowly get warm as the other stay cold until it reaches proper temp, and it immediately get hot when the thermostat opens. But a thermostat is cheap, so do it anyway.

While you are at it, you might as well splice one of those garden hose adapters into the heater hose, and back flush any sediment out of the system.
Make sure you replace with antifreeze and don't leave pure water in over night.

Then check the fan system.
The sensor that turns the fan on is in the radiator, and should turn on the fan relay at 190 degrees or so.
The actual fan should not matter if it works at all.

2001 aurora engine heats up when not moving down


Likely the fan(s) not turning on when engine gets hot. Is the check engine light on? Read the code(s) and repair as needed. Check (when cold) the fan(s) for free turning--if seem bound or hard to turn, replace the ailing fan. Check the radiator and reservoir fluid level. Watch the fans as the engine heats up. Feel the radiator area where the upper engine hose connects. It will suddenly turn hot when the thermostat opens. The fan assembly should activate somewhat after. Hopefully, the engine code recognized a defective temp sensor and was replaced.

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens.  One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side,  fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight.  Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.
