Why is car pouring out anti-freeze from behind the passenger side front tire; running hot after about 15 mins of driving at speeds over 40 mph. Is this a water pump or bottom radiator hose problem, e

most likely the over flow hose goes back there, when the car is over heating its bubbling out. First change the thermostat and then refill coolant and do a air bleed to the system. This is a very serious problem and I would not be driving this car for any length of time till problem is fixed. Pray its not the head gasket or that it has failed from over heating.

2001 galant v4 overheating

Don't remove radiator cap when engine is hot.

Is your reservoir full to the right level? Check hoses for a leak. I would have the system flushed if there are no hose leaks in case air is in the system which can cause overheating. This can be done for about $50-$100 or less at many places. Sometimes when a thermostat is replaced the system isn't bled correctly. I hope its not your water pump, but it may be.

Good luck.

Heat not hot enough on 1995 cherokee

The first place to start would be the water thermostat. Your dash gauge probably is not sensitive enough to show 10 or 20 degrees difference in running temperature. Replace the thermostat and see what that does for you.

Next would be checking the water flow on the heater hoses. Both should be equally hot. If they are not, the flow valve is not opening fully.

Once you have gotten the most from the water system, the remaining heat comes from the duct flap operation. If you wish to check the movement of the duct flaps first, you can do that. If the heat in the water hoses to and from the heater core are equal and seem hot, any operating cables or duct solenoids(called motors) under the dash should be checked.

If the heater coil was disconnected, would that make the truck overheat?

Doubt it.
Could be things like an exhaust restriction or flow problem in the block.
You could connect the heater hoses with a piece of pipe to test the theory.

91 Geo Storm Gsi running just fine, one day I lost power driving 65, check engine light came on and was flickering, mph arm going up and down but didn't die then. Then it was ok.That happened 2 times...

Most engines don't fair well under extreme heat. It's apparent you might have some electrical issue's. Your rpm's or mph arm going up and down could be faulty speed sensor would cause arm problem. I think you may have more than one problem, the car shutting off is due to engine over-heating. Check cooling system-thermostat, water pump, radiator, engine fans and coolant temp sensor and fan relay's. It could be as simple as blown radiator hose.

Heater works when you drive at 65 mph

your either low on coolant or the heater core is restricted, check your coolant level in the resovoir while it is running and if it is full feel the heater hoses runing into the fire wall they should both be pretty hot if the vehicle is at normal operating temperature, if one hose is much hotter than the other, almost cold, at an idle then the heater core is clogged. SOMETIMES you can switch the two hoses around by removing the quick disconnects and just install them with hose clamps and reverse the direction of the coolant flow through the heater core causing the blockage to be pushed out from the heater core but replacing it would be the suggested method

Radiator problems

it may be a little off, but the lower water hose seldom gets very hot,, as its this hose that suplyes the engine with ""cold water"" the hot water comes out the top hose,, drains down the rad and cools on the way down then enters the engine through the bottom hose """if your engine stayes running in the normal place on the gage,,,and not over heating""" why are you spending money for nothing???""
you wont get the bottom hose to run hot unless the engine is cooking

Radiator flushed by vacumn system last year, now when the outside temp nears 100 degrees the temp will stay at mid way at 60 mph but when i attempt run faster 65/70 the temp shoots up until I reduce to...

Be sure coolant is up to proper level (when cooled) , and if water pump is working properly, I'd check my rad hoses for collapsing when engine rpm increases. Feel hoses for soft spots that may collapse & restrict flow when engine reaches a certain rpm.
