02 ford explorer 4.0 overheating and suddenly blowing cold air, then hot again while engine runs cool but not long


Most likely you have air trapped in your engine, particularly in the heater loop. You need to properly bleed the air out of your radiator cooling system. The hot and cold blasts of air coming from first hot water followed by air.
Read up on how to bleed air out of your radiator system. Some systems are very difficult to bleed.
If after doing a good bleed of the radiator system the problem returns, you may have a bad head gasket or other leak in your cooling system which is injecting air into the cooling system (radiator/water cooling system).

Overheating when driving down the road


Most common cause is a internally plugged radiator.
The water and coolant often react negatively to the metals and rubber inside the passageways to clog the radiator over time. If you wish to try to "reverse flush " it yourself, ask "fixya".
Other causes may be: Stuck thermostat, plugged fins of radiator outside, water pump slipping or starting to fail by "freezing up",
loose or slipping serpentine belt, and problem with the engine cooling fan.

I have a 94 ford explorer limited and it just started over heating today. i have already replaced the upper radiatior hose and heater control valve. i am not sure what would be causing it to over heat


the first thing I would try is thermostat. They are cheap. When it starts to overheat turn the heater on High. If the temp drops at all then its not the water pump. The heater will not blow hot if water is not circulating.

I have a 2010 ford escape..prob started as a coolant leak..took it to ford dealer, they repl water pump..a week later we noticed when u stop a red lite heater starts blowing cold air..took back to...


The performance of the heater indicates low coolant level. Pretty strange about the multiple water pumps, but if is is under warranty, you need to keep going back to the dealer. They must be missing something...

My heater only blows cold air-'98 ford explorer


Hi Bri,

That is usually the first symptom of low coolant. Not enough water in the system to circulate through the heater core. Has it been running hot?

Check the coolant level in the radiator

Best regards,
