    we are trying to determine the correct position for the top and bottom radiator hoses on a 1999 chevy tracker with a Susuki 2.0L 4 cyl engine installed. It continues to run hot even though the thermostat has been replaced and nothing is leaking. The sensor seems to be good and we think the hoses may be connected backwards. Please offer advice with a diagram included.

3/8 would be the size of a tranny line or the over flow hose from the top of the radiator at the cap to a overflow bottle...

How do you bleed air out of a 2005 ford explorer

Good job of tying the heater to the antifreeze overflow.

This is a guess. Replace the radiator cap and the hose connecting the radiator to the coolant reservoir. Then fill the radiator, engine, and heater hoses completely with antifreeze solution.

When the engine heats up, the coolant expands. Excess coolant is directed to the reservoir. When the engine cools, coolant is supposed to be sucked back into the coolant system. If either the radiator cap or the overflow hose has a tiny leak, air will be sucked in instead of the antifreeze returning

What causes antifreeze to run out in side the suv on the floor? it ran hot and the antifreeze was inside on floor passenger side

Your heater hose burst just inside the firewall, or, your heater core has developed a leak. Either way, you will have to access the heater core to replace the hoses and/or the core. Given the difficulty, I'd just replace both hoses and the heater core. Then it should give many years service. The vehicle "running hot" may be an entirely different issue. As a stop-gap to get it to the shop, you can loop the heater hose so that where the hose comes from the engine to the heater you loop it to the engine inlet from the heater. Takes heater out of the cooling loop.

Does it have a thermostat

Yes, in fact several, all auto engines do. But I will assume you are talking about the thermostat for your cooling system/antifreeze. The thermostat is easy to find just follow the top radiator hose back to where it connects to the engine. The thermostat will be under that connection.

Trying to replace thermostat

Fairly easy fix...

Place a pan under the front of your car to catch the antifreeze you loose. Buy some extra antifreeze. There will be a black hose, that's about 2" in diameter going from your radiator (top of radiator) to your engine. Your thermostat sets behind the point where that hose connects to your engine. On my Toyota Camry, a few parts had to be removed to get to where that hose connects. Jeeps are notoriously easy to service, so hopefully it's easily accessible. With your car cool, remove the hose where it connects to the engine. (coolant will drain out) Once that's removed, you're going to see the thermostat. You can usually get them out by hand be may need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove it. Twist back and forth while pulling outward. Once it pulls out, more coolant will drain out. Using acetone, thouroughly clean the round area where the thermostat sets. Once it dries, replace. (be sure you get a new rubber seal with it. It should come with the new thermostat, but I've seen them when they're missing from the box.)

Gently push the new thermostat with the rubber gasket on it back into place, twisting back and forth to be sure you get a good seal. (don't use pliers on the new one). Then replace the hose and tighten the clamp. Fixed.

Good luck!

I already found the main problem with my mustang the upper radiatior hose is cracked. i was just wondering if that would cause antifreeze to wind up all over the engine and the ground because i can't find...

yes that is your problem, the antifreeze is filled through the tank and runs into your radiator to cool and then through the top hose into you engine and then back to the radiator bottom hose

I have antifreeze leaking from the back radiator hose on my 2003 kia sorento

There is a hose on the upper rear of the engine block.I think its a heater hose. Anyhow, its has a "Y" shaped plastic adapter that is known to leak on sorentos. Buy the part and pay a shop to change it. I spent 2 hours tring to get to itwith no luck. I took it to a shop and it took them 5 hours and 3 technicians to change it out. Good luck.

Runnig hot

Cheap trial repairs.... With the engine cool.....
Pull the thermostat from the top of the engine block - at the point where the top radiator hose connects. Restore the hose connection and try running the car to see what the temp does. If this is the problem, the engine will run cold all of the time. (you should install a new thermostat).

If not the problem, on a cool engine, drain the radiator and insert radiator cleaner. refill with water and run for a few days. Drain and then flush with hose until water runs clear. Fill with 1 gal of antifreeze and the rest water.

What can cause antifreeze to pour out from on top of engine by valve cover and manifold

coolant line connection. check the radiator hose clamps on upper radiator hose. Your upper radiator hose connects to your engine and in that hose there is a thermostat and a gasket. souds like your gasket is bad. simple fix. cheap for a thermostat gasket.
