Hi there I'm looking for some advice I have a Nissan pulsar 2000 no heat from the heater and car keeps overheating while driving I be flushed the radiator and heater core, replaced the thermostat

Crazy but have you put thermostat back in correct way? If so sounds like an air blockage. Fill radiator, leave cap off, put internal heater on hot and run engine until water is fully hot. Both top and bottom radiator hoses are hot. Sometimes therenis a bleed screw near the engine compartment bulkhead that needs opening to let trapped air out. If you have drained and refilled system and it only happened after that guarantee air lock. Good lick, let me know how you went plead.

Bleeding cooling system

sounds like air in system ...
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.
Keep an eye on the temperature gauge throughout this process

  • Refill the radiator to the top and coolant reservoir as needed. Put the radiator cap back on. Note that if the engine runs hot after this procedure there may have been another pocket of air that "burped." Let the engine cool down and then add more coolant to both the radiator and the coolant reservoir.

    Drained and filled the coolant radiator, (5.3L V-8, 118K). Started the engine and let it warm up all seemed OK. Ran it on te road and the temperature gage went up high, no hot air out of the heater. ...

    That's unlikely. More likely is that you have an air pocket from the draining procedure. You should fill your radiator as high as you can after draining it, then, with the cap still off, start the engine and continue to fill as it runs. Have a helper keep the engine at around 1500 RPM and have the heat on. When the engine gets warm enough, the thermostat will open, and you may notice a drop in the coolant level. Keep filling the radiator until it will take no more. Then, put the cap on, make sure the overflow reservoir is filled, and turn off the engine. The cooling down process will draw in more coolant if needed.

    I have a 2000 chryler concorde with no heat. I changed the thermostat.I 've checked the coolant. The blower is working but only cold air. Any solutions

    if you have changed the thermostat. did you bleed air out of system, if air is trapped in system it will not heat right! drain radiator and flush it good, but when refilling turn heater on high heat. then bleed air out when refilling system. most all cars have a bleeder for air. if in doubt, call any auto parts store to find out where yours is. if air is in system you will see bubbles appear from bleeder. also when flushing engine, make sure you start vehicle so it circulates through engine as well as refilling system. if the upper radiator hose gets hot then check for heat from car if it is ok! close bleeder and make sure radiator is full. I think the biggest culprit is air trapped in system. before starting the flush, be sure its not caused by low coolant in radiator. have a good day!!

    How do you change the coolant in a 2002 Buick?

    With any car you have to open the plug on the bottom inside of radiator using something to hold the fluid. Take off the radiator cap to release pressure. Once all has drained out, close plug tight with fingers. Refill 50/50 mix. Run car for 5 minutes with cap loosely on top. Add more coolant. You want to get the air pockets out for sure. Very important. You can also use a funnel if it fits right in radiator while running it to get air out but as it heats up the level will rise. Air pockets will overheat the car.

    The engine is overheating at a stop but then goes down when I hit the gas. I have no Heat in the car. The radiator is full of coolant.

    You may have one of several issues. Overheating at a stop indicates an inoperative radiator cooling fan, The no heat issue is more than likely being caused by an air pocket left in the cooling system from the overheating. I would suggst verifyuing the operation of the cooling fans, and then check for any air pockets in the cooling system.

    My 2001 Jeep Cherokee is overheating after flushing the radiator and changing the thermostat. It is blowing cold air

    Did you make sure you filled the radiator up and got the overflow tank up to the correct level? Sometimes when you flush and drain the system and fill it back up air pockets can get trapped in the system. Start the jeep up with the radiator cap off and wait for the coolant to start flowing and when the air pockets make their way through they will escape and you can add more antifreeze.

    Also, did you make sure you installed the thermostat so it is facing the right direction?

    Good Luck

    I have the same exact problem and 2003 4cyl.and same year car....

    You may have had an air pocket in the system. What I would when you get part,is to run at idle with radiator cap off and let warm up from cold start. With heater setting on so as coolant can flow through that part of system. Of course keep eye on temp as it warms up. This can take a while as fans won't come on till thermostat is opening. check hoses as it warms. when hoses get "hot to touch" both upper and lower , put cap on and make sure overflow bottle is filled to its level.If it all seems to be going well then i would let fans cycle for 2 may be 3 time before test drive.
