I'm having trouble with an over heating problem when I run the A/C it gets hotter as the car is driven .Dose fine when the A/C isn't going .


Not likely the condenser, since that has really nothing to do with the water coolant. BUT, even though you flushed the radiator, it could be partially plugged up. What is probably happening is when the A/C is running the additional heat that comes out of the condenser removes the cooling effect of the airflow through the radiator, since there is a reduction of surface area. This allows the cooling system to overheat. Best to have the radiator pulled out and flow tested.

I have 1998 excavator 345bl engine 3176C AND IT GET OVER HEAT after 30 minute of work what can I do to stop the over heat


Not fully conversant with this engine but generally causes of overheating are the following;
not enough coolant in radiator
sticking thermostatic valve
blockage in cooling system

Make sure radiator and reservoir have enough coolant, if reservoir / radiator don't get hot when engine is running then there is a blockage or the thermostatic valve is faulty.

Flush the coolant system with appropriate additive, refill and try again (you can for this use plain water without antifreeze But if it works you MUST ADD anti freeze afterwards.

If flushing system does not work you will have to replace the valve. Unfortunately I have no idea where that will be on this engine , apart from it being near the top of the water cooling systemand directly before any hose going to radiator.

Hope this helps

My 2006 Pontiac Torrent cooling system was flushed. Then later experienced overheating and loss of heat. Heater hoses found leaking were replaced. Problem recurred. Cap was replaced and pressure is...


Even if there were no hydrocarbons detected I am almost positive you have a bad head gasket.Usually the back head on the number one cylinder.Almost all the ones I have done with this exact problem has been the rear head and the number 1 cylinder.Hair line crack between the cylinder and water jacket.I always replace both head gaskets.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 with very little heat. The lines get hot going to the heater core, but I do not get enough heat out to keep the cab warm. I contacted heatertreater, but my hot cold control...


I have the same truck, I have flushed the radiator both ways, flushed the heater core both ways flushed the engine four times, I have owned this truck for eight years and still cannot get it to heat up the cab. It will keep the windshield defrosted but that is all. If you find any tricks to fix this let me know PLEASE

Had radiator flush. Even before this was done,


A few things to consider when diagnosing poor heater
  • Flushing the radiator doesn't do much in terms of heat. The heater core should be flushed to get rid of anything accumulated in there over the years.
  • How hot is the engine actually getting? If the thermostat is stuck open the engine may never reach proper operating temperature.
  • With the engine at operating temperature feel the hoses going into the heater core, are they hot? Some vehicles use a heater control valve that only flows coolant through the heater core when activated. They work off of vacuum and it isn't uncommon to find a broken vacuum line at the valve.
  • Are the doors in the heater box operating correctly? Can you hear the heater door inside the dash open when you select heat?
I hope this helps in getting your heat to work for the upcoming season.

Over heating


try flushing the system.you may have some restrictions in the motor, but first remove the radiator cap before it gets to hot,but hot enough for the thermostat to be open,and make sure you have flowing coolant.If not your water pump is bad.The fluid should be moving quite a bit.

2001 expedition heater does not heat well


I would flush the whole system with radiater flush then replace with new coolant. But make sure the heater is set to full heat when you flush it ( while driving around the block with flush in it) so the small radiater that has the hot water flowing through it gets flushed too. It may have some build up in it stopping the full flow of heated water/coolant through. If it is bad enough may need to remove and spray out the rubber hoses from the motor to the heater core, and possibly remove the heater core and hose it out to make it flow better and therefore increase the heating ability. Hope this helps.
