03 civic heat doesn't work unless driving


no that is a water pump or a stuck thermostat. see when you are driving the coolant is going through the system which means the faster you go the faster the water pump goes and more pressure on the thermostat. you have a stuck thermostat

My 02 suburban 5.3 liter started overheating suddenly. I changed the themostat but it overheats in about a 1/4 mile. How do you tell if the water pump is bad? It's not leaking.


Start it up, when it hits operating temp that the thermostat open,Have gloves on that you don,t get burn,t, Seaze the hoses from the rad going to the engine one at a time to check if antifreeze is flowing trough them, If you don,t feel any flow on the top one ,the water pump is shot, Or you can take off the rad cap, Before you fire the truck up, Start it end watch if it is circulateing though the rad, But i have seen to many people get scolded that way, The hose trick is a safer thing to do. (PS) There could be a blockage ,That is causeing it to over heat All So,

Why does my '93 chevy suburban over heat while idle


I would check the clutch fan or (radiator fan), try this when the truck is cold the fan should spin free and when it is warm the fan should stiffen up. the fan should spin slower when cold and faster when warm.

My 1996 chevy suburban wont start


If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.

1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).

2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)

3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.

Here is a list of replacements:

^ water pump
^ thermostat
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)

**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

The thermostat is located in the water pump on mostn never Chevy trucks. If you pull the upper fan shroud, you should see the thermostat housing. Remove the radiator hose, then the 2 bolts for the housing. Replace the thermostat, and gasket together.
