I have a 1990 Ford Ranger 2wd 4.0 liter V-6. I have replaced the water pump that went bad and the thermostat. Its still overheating very fast. I mean with in driving a few miles its already in the hot...


Check your temp sender in case its faulty, but if the enging feels that hot then its could be a number of things. Start with a possibly blocked radiator, or it could be a blown head gasket (is the water system getting pressurised? remove filler cap WHEN COLD and start engine, if it blows the water out or you see bubbles then its a gasket. It could also be that the system is just airlocked (having the header bottle (if fitted) higher than the engine when filling should maybe sort that, also check your heater pipes for bleed scews (fitted if airlocks are a problem on some cars) or maybe youve fitted the thermostat upside down, (check direction of flow). Personally I would go for either an airlocked system or a wrongly fitted thermostat.

When you shut off the engine the overflow jug bubbles,i've already replaceds the head gasket and it doesn't seem too be overheating and it doesn't do it when its running?


You could have an airlock still in the system. Run the vehicle at idle and squeeze the top and bottom radiator hoses with the expansion bottle cap removed. Add fluid gradually to it keeping it under the full marker. The bubbling is super hot air caused by air trapped either in the engine block, or top of radiator. A little tip while doing this, have the heaters on in the car and on high heat with the fans running at high speed. If you notice the engine getting warm and the heating in the car stays cold, the airlock is going to need a bit more work. Eventually if you have replaced the head gasket correctly the air lock with come out. Hope this helped...

I need 2 know how to remove my radiator in a 2000 olds intrigue


GM Century/Lumina/Grand Prix/Intrigue 1997-2000
Radiator - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The radiator removal procedure is similar among all of the GM W-Body vehicles. A variety of bolts, nuts, clips and fasteners are used. The following procedure should suffice for all W-Body vehicles.

CAUTION Use care when working underhood around the cooling fans. The fans are controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to come on at a certain temperature, even with the engine turned off. Always disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent the fans from starting without warning.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the coolant from the radiator.
CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Remove the engine mount strut. Some technicians will disconnect just one and swing the strut out of the way. In this case, loosen the through bolts to prevent shearing the rubber bushings when the strut is moved out of the way for radiator removal. In some cases, it is best to remove the strut and its mounting bracket completely.
  2. Separate the cooling fan harness connector from the engine harness.
  3. Separate the low coolant level module harness connector at the module.
  4. Disconnect the radiator hoses.
  5. Remove the cooling fan assembly from the vehicle, as outlined in this section.
  6. Disconnect the automatic transaxle cooling lines from the radiator
  7. There should be two small retaining brackets at both ends of the radiator that are removed.
  8. Carefully lift the radiator up and out of the vehicle. Note that the bottom should have locating pins on each end which should fit into grommet-like rubber mounts at installation.

To install:
  1. Use care when handling the radiator. It is constructed of aluminum and should be handled carefully. Install the radiator, making sure that the lower locating pins on each end fit into the grommet-like rubber mounts.
  2. Connect the transaxle cooling lines to the radiator.
  3. Assemble both the cooling fan harness connector and the low coolant level module harness connectors.
  4. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process. When refilling the cooling system, use the proper mix of DEX-COOL® and water. Check for leaks.

Hope this help (rmember rated and comment this).

Heat blows cold air-no heat


first check to see if your heater hoses are getting warm you may just have a bad thermostat, if you've had any recent work done to the cooling system you may have an airlock which does not allow any coolant too flow through the heater core. do you smell antifeeze ?

Car over heating. tempature gauge fluxuates


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading

No heat


Should be located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the radiator
Remove this housing
Note how thermostat is installed
Clean both surfaces
Replace thermostat and gasket
Re-install housing
Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an airlock
Start engine and look for leaks
Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on
Check coolant level
