1990 Chevy cavalier gets hot and shuts off have to let it cool for a few hrs before it will start again Have replaced oxygen sensor tune up computer thermostat flushed radiator and car still same?
It very well could be your fan not turning on. There is a switch that tells it to turn on. I think its a temperature sensor in the coolant line. Start it with the hood open. Once it gets about 200 degrees the fan should turn on. If it doesn't, bad sensor/switch. I have seen some people hook the fan up to a switch inside their car haha. I would say that it is the fuel pressure regulater. When they go bad they affect the car only once warm. It is located on the top back side of the throttle body. If you can check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail the pressure should stay the same after you shut the car off. If the pressure goes down after you shut off the car it means the fuel pressure regulater diafram is leaking(bad).
The lower radiator hose goes from the bottom of the radiator to the engine block. On the engine side there will be a neck that comes off the block and the radiator hose is attached too it. Inside that neck is the thermostat and it can be replaced as a whole unit (the housing neck) or just the thermostat can be removed and replaced.
You replaced the thermostat in your 2001 Chevy venture but the van is still overheating the top radiator hose is hard and hot to the touch like the thermostat is not opening up please advise?
Why would the radiator fan continue to run after the engine stops after the thermostat was replaced on a 2002 Nissan Altima?
Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it…
Is it ok to replace dexcool with green antifreeze after the water pump thermostat and radiator was replaced in a 96 cavalier?
1995 Chevy cavalier z24. replaced water pump thermostat and still over heats coolant in resivoir does not boil. overheats underload?
If you have replaced the water pump thermostat and heater core and ran water through the radiator but it is still overheating Should you have the radiator pressure tested?
Your 1993 Pontiac Sunbird LE 4cyl keeps over heating If you remove the thermostat it stays cool I replaced the thermostat twice what could it bevI have no coolantleak or water in the exhaust?
I was having the same problem with my car. When you take the thermostat out it will automatically read cool. But I later found out that I had a leak in my radiator and had to replace it. Turned out that my heads are warped and was leaking oil into my water and into the radiator itself. Once i replaced the radiator its been fine.
