Until an engine has reached close to operating temperature, you won't see much flow. If the engine has reached (or exceeded) its nominal temperature and there is still no water flowing (in the radiator, not the overflow bottle), then the thermostat may have failed to open (replace) or the water pump has dropped its impeller. If you see any pulleys under the hood with nothing on them, then you've lost a belt although when this happens you normally lose other things too like steering boost and alternator operation. Those should be easy to notice.

Coolant not flowing through the system no pressure.


not sure what problem you are having. When you first crank the car the thermostat will be closed preventing fluid flow that you would normally see when the radiator cap is removed. Once the engine warms up the tstat opens and the fluid flows.

Don't open the radiator when it's hot it could be under pressure and put hot fluid on you.

If it's overheating then the most likely cause is the thermostat being stuck in the closed position.

Heater does not work at all


check radiator fluid is full the heater operates buy the radiator fluid flowing through the heater core. next your thermostat might be stuck in the open position thus your radiator fluid not heating up on cold days - no hot radiator fluid no heat. if fan is not coming on check fuse first if fuse is good check heater fan motor

My coolant is filling up with transmition fluid why?


Transmission fluid is sometimes cooled by way of a seperate internal tank within your radiator, the fluid is passed through hoses and steel or aluminum tubes from the transmission to the radiator, as the fluid flows thru the internal tank within the radiator it transfers heat from the fluid into the coolant within the radiator which then exchanges the heat from the coolant thru the radiator fins and into the ambiant air around the radiator.
That being said, if the internal transmission fluid tank or the connections at or within the radiator develop some sort of leak, the two fluids(coolant and transmission fluid) will mix and will show up where it shouldn't be! You may have an internal leak within the radiator, which means the radiator needs to be replaced.
Good Luck!

Engine is overheating immediatly


Check your radiator fluid level. If the fluid is low, car will overheat. Fill the radiator and fill your reservoir to the proper hot or cold level marked on the side. If your fluids are good, it could be a faulty thermostat. If the thermostat is stuck closed, your fluid won't flow. If you follow your top radiator hose back it will lead you to the thermostat housing. You will have to drain your fluid to remove and replace the thermostat.

Over boiling problem while temperature guage remains normal.


Replace the thermostat. The Thermostat is not functioning correctly. It is closed = not allowing the radiator fluid to flow when the engine is cold. When the Thermostat reaches a certain temperature, it is suppose to open = allowing the radiator fluid to flow.
Your Thermostat is not opening, causing the engine fluid to reach boiling point. When this happens, the sheer pressure will 'blow' boiling radiator fluid out the radiator cap. The Radiator Cap is designed to do this if operating properly.
Change that Thermostat and the over boiling should disappear. And yes it is something you can do yourself without much problem.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
Please include your engine size on any additional information or questions..Thanks,

Overheated transmission in 1993 4x4 dodge 150 and now have no gears. will go about a half block forward or reverse when cold. fluid level was fine but now reads overfull after overheating. is also a new...


Likely have a restriction in cooler flow.The radiator has a tank built into it that cools the trans fluid,if it's restricted,the fluid flow will also be restricted.Disconnect cooler RETURN line,after the radiator,and put into a gallon jug.Have a helper start the vehicle with the selector in NEUTRAL,and measure cooler flow after the radiator.It should be minimum 2 quarts (1/2 gallon) in 20 seconds.Good luck.

Radiator question


The way it works is that the water in the radiator will sit there and not circulate when the thermostat is not open until operating temp. is reached. Once it is reached you should see the water in the radiator circulate at this time.
