I think the main problem is in pressure cap cuz when it releases the pressure the water tarts boiling cuz its name pressure cap keeps water under pressure boiling at 120 c rather than 100 thats why you hear bubbles water is boiling and it cant be any other thing

most of the cars made for Europe are equipped with a( thermostat ) but don`t confuse it with air conditioner thermostat or thing is working like valve that stops water circulating in cold starts so the water will only circulate around the engine block not through the radiator and of coarse it helps heat up your car`s engine faster but the problem comes when that valve got old (by the way most of those valves working as a wax capsule when the water heats to some amount the wax molten so it opens the way for water to circulate through the radiator ) what happens is simply the wax looses some of its function and molten in higher temp . so it block the water again until it heats up to molt the wax my advice : get off that part and just don`t replace it if you found it pricey for you your car still working but will needs more time to warm up i hope i was useful for u sir .

Both could cause the problem, but the bigger question is whether the car is over heating. For the water in the overflow to bubble, this would denote the water is being pushed from the radiator to the overflow for some reason. So you need to check this our. It could be a leak, rusty radiator, bad cap, but more than likely a faulty thermostat. But you should check this out soon as this problem, if left to get worse, could cause major damage. I hope this helps and if there is anything more I can do to help, please ask.

Refilling radiator


Before you add coolant always make sure that the engine is cool never add coolant to a hot engine.Next remove the radiator cap and fill it to the top with a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water.After you have filled the radiator with the coolant water mixture put the radiator cap back on and then fill the reserve tank to the cold level mark on the side of the bottle

Water reserve bottle is emptying and engine is getting how


flushing a radiator is a waste of time and money as blocked cores do not flush. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for external leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow test done on the radiator and if shows signs of blockage replace the radiator .. Always fill the radiator at the radiator cap and not the reserve bottle. The reserve bottle water will not go down until the engine coolant starts to cool so if it is going down when the engine is hot then you have a bad leak in the reservoir bottle.

Water is not flowin through engine and runs hot


circulation comes from the water pump,but the thermostat must also be opening and closing for this system to work properly.some where some thing is not functioning properly,with out a doubt in my mind and no your engine is not blown; make sure the cooling system is not air bound ,i do believe that there is several bleeders to render this problem ,now if the coolant light is on that usually means the reserve container is low but the level sensors also get stuck causing this type of situation,also the reserve bottle or container doesn't circulate,it just draws extra antifreeze when needed or when the engine over heats it catches back flow thats why it should be filled to the level indicated on the bottle ,good luck

My ford ranger keeps running hot. I can drive it and after about 30min. there is not water in the radiator.


Ok ~ Things to check are (simplest first)
1. Examine radiator cap for damaged or leaking seals. (Have it tested at your radiator place.
2. Check for water leaks. At the radiator, rubber hoses including heater hoses. Also cabin heater radiator core.
3. Top up radiator and run engine without the cap fitted. Blip the throttle and see if any bubles or traces of gas appear when you look in the top tank. During this test, check that the top tanks turns "hot" as the thermostat opens. If not, remove and test/replace thermostat.
4. Have a "cylinder leakage test" done at your repair shop.
5. Have the cooling system pressure tested.
6. Add coooling system ceaner to the system and drive for about 30mins. Next, reverse flush radiator and engine block.

This list is in the order you need to procede, and next step should be performed only after the the preceding step tested ok.

Engine running hot and the water in the radiator is bubbling but not hot i think its the water pump but someone told me it was the thermostat im a mechanic but im always open for suggestions


If the bubling is sort of gassy, the likelyhood is a blown head gasket. But check the easy things first. Check the thermostat the usual way. Test the radiator cap too. Have a cylinder leakage test done on the engine, followed by a pressure test of the cooling system., in this order. If these test show no problem (I'd be surprised) have the radiator and engine block reversed flushed.

Radiator pressure cap on 2001 Grand Am GT


If it is on the reserve tank not the radiator. then there should be a air vent on it somewhere. it might even be a hose coming from the top of the tank. Make sure that it is not plugged. When your car gets hot it overflows the water in the radiator in to the reserve tank, as it cools it sucks it back. if you don't have a vent opening then it is like taking air out of a milk carton with the lid on. If it is the cap on the radiator then you might have air in the hose or engine.
