I have replaced the radiator and water pump (which is the correct pump). Put two mini fans on the front of the radiator. Took out the thermostat and it still runs hot.

It will run hotter with no stat,the water goes too fast too get cooled in the rad. Would be better off to try cutting the center out of the old stat and just run the "restrictor" . If it gets hot at hiway speeds,NAPA sells a combustion leak dectector,will let you know if it's a head gasket or not. Just a liquid that changes color if it sees exhaust.

I have a 1987 2wd ford f150 and there seems to be rusty water from my rad leaking out of my transmission area???

Hi, there are freeze plugs on the back of the engine block. If one of them has rusted thru, it will leak coolant into the transmission bell housing and out the bottom. You will have to separate the transmission from the engine at least a few inches or more to repair the freeze plug. If you need instructions for doing this, please reply with your engine size and type of transmission.

My radiator looses water just as fast as I put it in.It seems to be leaking underneath by the rear of the motor...some one told me to ncheck freeze out plugs..HELP please

You have to do detective work, use a mirror and trouble light to see blind spots, have someone pour water in the rad while locating the leak

F250 still running hot after changing radiator, thermostat and water pump.

Are you relying on the trucks temp gauge or did you check coolant in the rad. with a thermometer? Do you have pure water in it or anti freeze.

This is not a good sign. have your oil changed and see if their is antifreeze in the oil. If so im sorry to say it but you have a head gasket leak. Very common on the F-150's

Losing my antifreeze

the frost plug wont pop unless youve frozen the truck with only water in the block, if you did and the plug went you'd know.. the rad would have blown and leak extremely. and the block plugs would do more than just trickle under pressure. and for some reason if it didnt pop but it froze then your block will be cracked. or you over heated it badly and warped the heads and now the gasket is leaking.(need more than just the gasket, also need freshly machined heads) I'm thinking you have warped heads, as your truck shouldnt have any pure unmixxed water in it unless it brokedown on you and you had to add it at which point you know you did it and should surmise that thats whear the problem stems from. Good luck Rott.
