#1 If It's a 2000-2006 GM the stepper motor in the cluster may be the problem.
#2 There may be air in your system. Bleed out the air and the Antifreeze flows a lot better.

I had a bottom radiator hose blow off my 05 equinox and I flushed the block then the heater core a d changed the thermostat put all new coolant in and still keeps overheating


What about the radiator? Water pump? Can you check for coolant flow? There could be air in the cooling system? Do you trust your temp gage? Are there overheating issues besides the temp gage showing hot, like coolant overflowing, under the hood, somewhere?

Overheating with normal temp on gauge


The heater core would not cause you needing a quart or two of coolant to fill it up. And the water pump would not affect this either.
Something is blocking the system, it could be something in the radiator or something in one of the hoses.
You might try taking the top hose off and filling the engine with the radiator blocked off. Or fill the radiator with the engine blocked.

I have 2000 astro van and I'm not getting heat, I changed thermo stat and flushed heater core. Still no heat, whats the next step?


Feel your heater hoses. If both are hot, the core is circulating. If only one is hot-poor or no circulation of the core.
If the heater core is circulating, the temperature blend door may not be working to let blower air pass across the heater core, and into the vents. If vacuum operated, watch the vacuum valves as you move heater controls-you may spot the problem. Check that the vacuum line from the engine to the control switch is working and still connected. If not operated by vacuum, the controls may have cables to the heater case or may be electrically operated. You'll just have to scope it out. Good luck.

My 98 ford f150 overheats constantly. I have changed the thermostat, fan, fan clutch, gave it a flush and still overheating. A mechanic checked it and said the water pump is good cause water is...


does the heater work good, like real HOT when the truck is HOT? if not, flush the heater core with a water hose, both directions. Now when the truck is HOT open the hood and feel the air coming thorough the radiator, it should be HOT. if its not, the radiator may be plugged. If the mechanic has a Temp Gun, have him check the radiator temp, it should be uniformly HOT if you find cold spots (like if the radiator is 200f and there are places that are 150f) the radiator is plugged and "flushing" will do nothing.

New fan clutch t-stat still overheats


Yes, I am sorry to say this could be a blown head gasket. It could also be a bad water pump. Lets hope that it is the pump. You can get a pump replace for under $200.00 as opposed to the head gasket which runs over a thousand. It really sounds like water pump problem because you are not getting heated water to you heater core, where This would also cause the non mixing of fluids. Take the radiator cap off and see if you get bubbles rising to the to cover. Also if you rev the engine up and water comes shooting out the radiator cover hole the you definetely have a head gasket problem. Be very careful not to burn yourself. I bet anything it is just a pump. Gaskets ususally only go bad if you drive the car while overheating. Lets get this solved for you. Send me your qustions and we will get you taken care of. Please leave me good feedback, it means a lot to me....

I had a new water pump installed on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo as it was leaking. After the installation, the temperature gage is still running hot. Could it be the thermostat?


Thought I answered this one already. but here's the short version. Yes , change the t stat after servicing wp. They become unreliable after any high temps (above normal). Check the electric fan, and the mechanical fan to make sure both are working properly. If all else fails. remove radiator and back flush. often overheat or high temps can loosen block rust and obstruct part of the radiator core.
When re-filling, turn heater on high to eliminate air pockets in system.
Good luck with it

Put stop leak in rad


the only thing I can recommend is to put in a flush tee not the hose going to the water pump but the one going to the engine open up the radiator and drain that first then fill with water get some radiator flush and run the car about ten minutes drain that out using the flush tee and a garden hose and run till it is clear with the engine running after clear close drain plug on radiator and fill with antifreeze and make sure to get all air bubbles out and you should start getting some heat and if you don't after doing all this replace the heater core but check the hoses coming from the heater core to make sure one of them is not plugged

1996 GMC 1500 4X4 TRUCK- NO HEAT


I am going to assume that you checked to make sure the cooling system is full. The next thing to do is flush out the heater core. The easy way to do this is to clamp off the heater hoses with visegrips and remove them from the heater core. You will only loose the coolant that is in the core this way. Take a garden hose and try to backflush the core out until the water is clear. Being that you said you don't feel the inlet hose getting warm the chances are the core is completely blocked so it may take some working back and forth between inlet and outlet to dislodge anything in it. I have also had to use an air compressor to do it but you need to be very careful not to use too much pressure or you can rupture the heater core. Worst case is you will have to replace the core but I would try flushing it first. Hope this helps.
