Make sure you keep the thermostat in there, regardless of how it runs without it - it's a vital part of the car's cooling system and you're bound to run into trouble without it.

I have 2000 dodge intrepid no heat I put antifreeze in resivoir works for a little bit park car drive again no heat again, temp reads at half mark I park car antifreeze is coming out over flow hose


Sounds like a bad thermostat. If the thermostat is not working, the system doesn't know the real temp of the engine and things like the antifreeze and heating system work wrong or don't work at all. Take it to a mechanic to check things out.

No heat but blows cold air


Not if the engine is getting up to normal temp. Could be low on coolant or a problem with the heater core or a blend door under the dash.

The car will have to heat up a bit before the fans turn on. Chech the temp gauge. the temp should be at or near the half mark for the fans to come on

1998 CADILLACE 4 DOOR SEDAN DEVILLE IS OVER HEATING TEMP GOES UP TO 230 REPLACED THERMOSTAT


  • Add a mixture of one-half water and one-half antifreeze to the radiator. Fill it right up to the top.

  • 2

    Fill the overflow/coolant reservoir with the same 50/50 mixture.

  • 3

    Leave the radiator cap off, turn the engine on and let it run until the radiator "burps": You will see the coolant level drop and may see or hear a large air bubble come to the top as the system burps.

  • 4

    Keep an eye on the temperature gauge throughout this process.

  • 5

    Refill the radiator to the top and coolant reservoir as needed.

  • 6

    Put the radiator cap back on.


  • You might have some air inside coolant system, try follow the steps that i just created. if its not work out please relay me back thanks

    i wonder if possibly a defective thermostat, that it is sticking open.
    to bench test thermostat place in a pot,if you have a candy thermometer all the better ,place in cool water and bring to boil checking temp.it should open alittle at a time until being fully open at what ever temp it is rated at
    then slowly add cold water and it should close in a similar fashion

    1996 saturn sl2 fan coming on late an over heating


    Start with engine cool, & remove radiator cap. Check level in rad & fill to an inch or so from top of rad. Start car & turn heater on.(not defrost)
    Now let it run until engine gets up to normal operating temperature & let it run until rad fan comes on & off, 2 or 3 times. Rev engine slightly every so often just to help disperse air in system faster. Fill rad as needed during this time. After you do that, and fan has come on & off 2 or 3 times, put rad cap back on & fill return bottle to proper mark, then see how it is.
    I suspect it's just air in system & this should cure that . If not get back to me.
