1990 Toyota PU truck overheated it was a bad radiator replaced the radiator but the heat smoked the air conditioner gas how hard is it to recharge the air conditioner?
if you don't have the knowledge or know someone that does on recharging the system the safest thing to do is take it to the shop.
My 1990 Honda Civic Hatchback had a similar problem where it overheated on a seemingly random basis. I first replaced the thermostat, but that did not fix the problem. Then I replaced the water pump, again with no positive result. Finally, I replaced the radiator, which fixed the problem. As it turned out, the radiator had pinhole leaks that caused the problem. Also, when it comes to a leaking radiator, I do not suggest the…
Radiator caps are pressure relief valves. They are rated at "pounds per square inch" and are designed to release some pressure from the radiator if it gets too high. If an engine overheats it can boil the coolant and this will cause the radiator cap to let out steam. Radiator caps DO lose their ability to regulate pressure and can release too soon. If the engine has not overheated, have the radiator cap tested and…
How can you tell if a fuse or thermostat or water pump needs to be replaced on a 1995 Mercury Tracer when the warning comes on when it is started and the engine overheated with water in the radiator?

Radiator crack car overheating replaced radiator ran car for a week then the car overheated again should I replace the water pump what should I do?
I would suspect the thermostat is the culprit. Replace the thermostat. definately replace the thermostat, get a new gasket and all. Also, start the car cold and see if the inlet hose to the radiator warms up evenly. if it gets really hot on the engine side of the hose and is still cool by the radiator that means that there is no flow and either the thermo is installed wrong or something is clogged
Why would a fan work only after the coolant has overheated on a 1994 3.3 Plymouth Voyager that has had the water pump and thermostat replaced?

What would be the reason for a 1990 Plymouth Acclaim to continue to overheat even after the theromstat was replaced?
Be sure that the radiator is filled to the top and the reservior is 1/2 filled. Warm up the engine and see if the cooling fan is working.If not then turn on the air conditioner and the fan should come on. If not you most likely have a defective fan motor. Your radiator could be plugged up; if so replace it.
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?
If the fan that is running is the radiator fan, this is nothing to be concerned with. Some vehicles have fans that will run even if the car is off. The fans run to cool the engine down. If it continues to run, the radiator fluid may need to be replaced. If the fan that is continually running is the heater/air conditioner fan, there is an issue with the switch that turns it on and…
I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994. That was the last thing I replaced after replacing the water pump, thermostat, and replaced my fan with a clutch fan. have not had anymore problems with it overheating once the radiator was replaced. Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.

1996 Jeep Cherokee It only overheats with the air conditioner ON and IDLING. after normal driving it cools to normal temperature after resuming driving speed. Replaced the radiator cap thermo etc..?
The cooling fan should run continuously when the A/C is on. See if it is running, and if not check the fuse, and thermal relay. If they are good, see if the fan motor itself it good. If all this checks out, the drain and flush the radiator with a chemical flush. Also make sure the front of the radiator is free of debris.
I've had this happen to me before. I had the water pump replaced after it had been leaking a little and my car overheated. We thought it might have been leaking again but turns out the mechanics had forgot to tighten something. I would have them look at it once more to make sure nothing is loose and leaking your coolant.
Yes, coolant can leak from the engine. If it's hot outside and you're running the Air Conditioner (AC) and you back up and see a liquid on the ground, it's probably condensation from the AC unit. Or, it could be collant leaking from the engine. How old is the car? Do you consider radiator hoses to be part of the engine? Radiator hoses should be replaced every 3-5 years, especially if there are bulges, or…
99 dodge grand caravan you replaced the lower radiator hose but it is still leaking where could the leak be coming from?
To fix the air conditioning on the Peugeot 406, the steps will vary depending on the problem. Often, if the air conditioner does not come on at all, a fuse or wiring will need to be replaced. If the air conditioner blows hot air, the condenser or the coolant system might need to be replaced. If the air conditioner lacks a fan, the blower motor might be 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.
