Hi :) Check the gap of the spark plugs, this can cause a motor to over heat and check the compression and the oil pump pressure and the fuel filter, a engine not getting anought fuel can burn lean and over heat.

No heat in my 95 jeep grnd Cherokee 5.2. New waterpump, tstat rad+ cap. flshd the sys. I get air out have heat.put the cap on no heat. No ovrhtng. Bleeder cap? Where is it? Need to check 4 a leak.


there is no bleeder on that engine.
are you loosing coolant? in the GC body style you need to have coolant right at the top for it to flow to the heater core.
try a quick trick, reverse the hoses to the core, i know it sounds nuts but it works on some of them , if your filling your core from the top you are pushing the air down and that sometimes will not work, filling from the bottom pushes air up and back to your block. i know the connections are side by side but that's not how it feeds at the core itself

Sounds like you make have another leak somewhere allowing air to enter into the system. I would recommend doing a coolant system pressure test. This will tell you if there is a leak somewhere else.

Hmedmy Audi a4 1996 2.6 litre is over heating and leaking coolant, i dont know what the problem is


More than likely they're related. First locate the leak - hose, waterpump - repair the leak & I suspect your overheating will stop. Note; you might consider replacing thermostat also, they damage easily when overheated.

My 1997 Dodge Intrepid overheats. I've replaced the thermostat, and it continues to overheat. I noticed adjacent to one of the radiator hoses, a ribbed hose that is split. Could this cause the car to...


Now that you've eliminated the thermostat, it could be a number of other things. Don't drive the car too far until you've fixed the overheating problem - overheating can destroy an engine.

That split ribbed hose you see is plastic wire loom - it carries and protects electrical wires, and is not the cause of overheating.

1. Low coolant level
2. Radiator hose split/cracked, causing low coolant level.
3. Head Gasket - leaking, causing low coolant level
4. Thermostat - stuck closed (you eliminated this possibility)
5. Radiator cap - worn/damaged
6. Radiator fins - obstructed by debris/cardboard
7. Water Pump belt - missing/broken
8. Heater Core - leaking, causing low coolant level
9. Intake Manifold Gasket - leaking, worn, damaged
10. Radiator Fan Relay - faulty
11. Radiator Fan Blade - broken, missing
12. Radiator Fan Sensor/Switch - faulty
13. Water Pump - leaking, causing low coolant level
14. Radiator Fan Motor - faulty

My primary suspects would be Rad Fan Relay (#10), and
Rad Fan Switch (#12).

No heat changed thermostat flushed engine new coolant


did you release air from cooling system when replacing coolant!! if air is trapped in system it will not heat up proper. turn fan on high heat locate bleeder for cooling system, open bleeder with car running. if there is any air in system you will see it come out of bleeder. keep checking for heat. when you get heat bring coolant to proper level. leave top off of coolant recovery tank while bleeding system. put cap back on when done.

Overheating


Have you tried the 8 mm bleeder screw on top of the thermostat housing? You may have air trapped behind your thermostat. Also, overheating can be caused by a collapsed lower radiator hose. If it's soft and you can squeeze it together, then under acceleration it closes down on itself thus preventing the flow of your coolant. Also check your radiator cap. It's supposed to be a 1.1 Bar cap but if it's not functioning correctly, by having to add coolant to the coolant reservoir bottle or the coolant overflow bottle overflowing, usually says it's the radiator cap. These are the simple fixes that you ,may have overlooked.

Good Luck,

Overhating


Chanses are you got an air pocket in the system, there should be a bleeder on top of thermostat housing to bleed off the air, also might be one by the water pump. Its a common problem on them cars after you have drained the coolant to do thermostat or waterpump. Just bleed off the air and you should be good to go.

2001 chevrolet pickup v6 overheating after changing waterpump


If you are not getting heat now, it's because you have an air lock in the system. sometimes it can be difficult to burp the system. try turning the heater on high in the defrost position. run your vehicle with the rad cap off and keep the engine running at about 1500 rpm. That should give the waterpump enough momentom to purge the air through the engine. check around the heater hose area and around the thermostat area for any bleeder screws ( sometimes these vehicles will have 2 or 3 for ease of purging the air). hope this helps and if you need any other info please don't hesitate to write.
