It can only be two other things, make sure the fan is working and if the fan is working, then you need to change the head gasket.

97 f150 4.6 four wheel drive . I've put in new radiator and thermostat still heat hand going to hot. The re savour container that holds the coolant is cold when suppose to be hot. Please help don't know...


Run vehicle with radiator cap open. Does one one of the radiator hoses get hot while the other stays cool? If so then you have no coolant flow through the motor. Check to make sure the radiator fan is operating properly. Now replace the faulty water pump and you will get to drive your f150 again.

1996 Ford Taurus is heating up really quick if driven 5 - 10 minutes over 60 mph


If water pump is old,like over 70,000 miles on it,replace it when you do the fan belt and tensioner.
A new thermostat and a radiator flushing might also be in order. don-ohio (:^)

With the symptoms you describe, coolant is not circulating through the system. Your first move to replace the thermostat was good. My next move would be to replace the water pump. Good luck.

Over heating


Thermostats in cars are often neglected, if not totally forgotten, units. Yet they play an important role in the general performance of cars by restricting water flow until the engine has warmed-up. Thermostats are heat sensitive valves that open and close. On cars they prevent circulation of coolant to the radiator until the engine is warm enough. When the thermostat is closed water only flows through the water pump and water jacket to let the engine warm quickly. When the thermostat opens, water can then pass through the radiator for general cooling.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Having a car that warms quickly is particularly useful in cold weather when you want to use your car heater as soon as possible. The thermostat is in a small housing positioned where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. The best time to check or change a thermostat is when you are servicing your radiator because you need to drain the cooling system
first. Hence, a thermostat change is a good time to flush and clean your cooling system, check all radiator hoses and the radiator pressure cap. Be sure you have the correct cap on your radiator and it is not rusted. Thermostats are small, inexpensive items. You can test them by heating in water and checking their operating temperature with a thermometer. However it really is quicker and ultimately more reliable to simply fit a new one,
1. thermostat common problems (replace every 50-60k miles)
2. thermostat switch sensor (which turn your cooling fan on and off)
3. check and see if the cooling fans is running when the engine get to its operation temperature. (fan motor can be fault)

My water outlet cap popped off and its leaking water and the water that stays boils. Should i replace my water pump 2003 dodge intrepid se 2.7


replace the cap--is the radiator damaged? No reason to replace the water pump. Boiling is caused by leak, faulty thermostat, clogged radiator, or head gasket.

95 Jeep Wrangler YJ...No heat, temp at about


It should be 200 degrees. If your running cold the only thing that regulates temp is the thermostat. If it is indeed 150 degrees thats why you have no heat.

If you replaced the water pump and the radiator for this condition then it was a waste of money. If you had a water pump or radiator problem it would overheat.

The fact that your blowing cold air tells me the that you really are 150 degrees or the heater core is plugged.

My jeep is heating up to about 235-240 after about 10 minutes of driving with A/C on. It usally takes about 30 minutes or more to heat up without the A/C on. I have replaced the fan clutch and thermostat...


Sounds like a partially obstructed radiator, either external, leaves between a/c condenser and radiator, or internal...some cores plugged ...radiators are actually too small for engine in the first place, making them what I consider marginal even when new. A good clue to an internal blockage is if the radiator cannot be filled quickly...a really bad one requires coolant to be literally dribbled in when filling, but likely yours isnt that bad yet. Everything else you mentioned seems normal
