Can't get the same temperature from all radiators - have tried turning both controls on rads over a period of 1 month and still can't get them at an even temperature, we have no thermostat control! Vaillant ecoTEC Pro.

I had this problem recently and all I did was to bleed the radiators. you probably have air locks and this creates pockets where the water cannot flow into and there froe cannot heat.

Central heating radiators downstairs take a long time to heat up

Problem is balancing & flow. Turn down the other rads until the inlet [flow] pipe is hot but the outlet [return] is luke warm. The rads have two valves - use the one which has a non-operation cap [just turns without doing anything]. when all the rads are the same temperature the system is said to be balanced and should be left like that using the other valves [with operating cap] to turn them on or off as required

I took my 99 dodge grand caravan to advanced auto and got a computer readout of p1491 as the error code. is this important and is this expensive?

P1491 is Radiator Fan Control Relay Circuit. MEANING: An open or shorted condition detected in the low speed radiator fan control circuit.
Some questions for you:
1. Is your Caravan overheating?
2. Is your Caravan water temperature spiking going past the midway point on the Temp Gauge before the radiator is engaged?
3. Is your Rad Fan coming-on and then turning off and back-on in a very short period of time (like under a minute?
If all of these are "No" then do not worry about it.

2002 pt cruiser overheating was told i need a new raditor and thermostat for 1 grand sounds fishy

Flush rad & change coolant & thermostat. Check operation of rad fan, & make sure it is coming on when engine reaches normal operating temperature. Be sure to bleed air out good when refilling rad/cooling system. Start engine & turn heater on when refilling & let rad fan come on & off at least 2 or 3 times before putting cap back on rad, and refill rad as needed as you do this. then fill return bottle to proper level & see what happens.

I have 97 dodge caravan 3.0 and i put in a brand new radiator and thermostat.Now the cooling fans dont come on and fluid is bubbling up and coming out of the reservoir. But if I unplug the temp. sensor...

Not unusual to get big airlock if heater (not defrost) isn't on during bleeding process. I usually start vehicle, top up rad 1 " or so from top,turn heater on , then watch temperature gauge & wait for fan to come on after I see flow through rad indicating thermostat opened.(Normal operating temperature)I let it do that about 3 times before I put rad cap back on, after topping rad up to about an inch or 2 from top. Then fill coolant return bottle, to proper level. It may be your problem, but if your temperature gauge goes way up past normal operating temperature, before you see flow in rad, then maybe a faulty thermostat is the cause.

Radiator whines and overheats when not moving

Have someone flush cooling system & check condition of rad for debris in front of rad & blow or spray it out as necessary. Next time it runs hot, turn your heater temperature up high, blower fan on high, and see if gauge starts to come back down a little. If it does, my guess is your rad needs replacing, or at least consider trying a good reverse flushing of the system first, then rad.

You may have a faulty rad cap, grab a new one at autoparts store, and try this first. With engine cool, take rad cap off, start engine & turn heater(not defrost) on. Top up coolant in rad to 1-2" from top. Let it run with cap off and add coolant as needed, until the engine reaches normal operating temperature, and the rad fan comes on, then shuts back off. Let it run like this until that fan comes on & off at least 3 times. Add coolant as needed in rad, while you watch it, and rev engine slightly every once in a while for 5 or 10 seconds. After rad fan has come on & off 3 times, make sure to top up coolant to 1-2" from top in rad, and put your new rad cap on all the way, and now lets see what happens. If at any time the temperature gauge goes up too close to hot, shut it off, let it cool down & try again. Top up coolant bottle to marked level .Let me know. It should now run normal temperature and have heat as required. If yu feel ambitious, it never hurts to change thermostat if it hasn't been done in a while, but at this time, it may not be necessary. My guess is problem is faulty rad cap & an airlock in your system. After all this is done, if all seems o.k. keep an eye on coolant level, my guess is it will be o.k. , if not get back to me.

Did you bleed the cooling system after refilling the radiator ? to bleed the system, fill the radiator with water and coolant. Run the engine until it is at a good temperature. Then turn off the engine and look for a bleeding screw at the oulet of the thermostat housing and turn it with a screwdriver counterclock wise. The trapped air will go out and coolant will start coming out. refill the radiator and repeat until only coolant comes out and no careful not to burn yourself.

Wedge, chances are your radiator might be clogged. Rads are designed to provide cooling even if a certain capacity is not flowing (10% or so). Beyond that, you will start to experience higher engine temperatures. You will usually start to see it when your vehicle is under load (AC is on, towing, steep inclines). By turning on the heat, you introduce your heater core into the cooling equation, therefore increasing the capacity of your cooling system enough to make up for the loss in your radiator. If your cooling system is ever low, rust develops in your block which is cleaned away by DEX Cool. However, this rust turns into a red mud which often ends up in the radiator (happens often in chevy pickups with the 5.7L). You have a few possible options if this is your problem.
1. Flush your cooling system. Not just the rad, the entire system. Make sure you get the dirty coolant out of the block.
2. This is rarely done anymore, but you can have you radiator rodded out. This involves a radiator shop taking you radiator out, removing one of the tanks, and pushing a long rod through each tube to remove any contaminates. It is not done much anymore as a new rad is often about the same cost.
3. Replace the rad.
Any route you take, make sure the ENTIRE system is flushed properly or you run the risk of recontamination your entire system. Hope this helped.
