1994 Chevy S10 Blazer 4.3 V6 engine running abnormaly hot changed water pump thermostate temp sensors and flushed if its over 80 outside engine shuts down after 30 min of driving any advice?
I just checked my Haynes manual and it suggests if the water pump has been replaced in a 1897 or later with a serpentine belt and a reverse rotating water pump it might have been replaced with an earlier, normal rotating water pump instead of the reverse rotating type. It also suggests the radiator cap not maintaining normal pressure, fan not functioning properly, radiator core blocked or radiator grill dirty and restricted, drivebelt defective or not adjusted properly.
Why am i having problems with my heat i have 95 buick lesabre We changed the water pump flushed the system up to the heater core I had heat befor we flushed?
Your 2000 elantra has done 160k and just this week the water in the radiator has started boiling and the temperature is almost hitting red can it be the thermostate the radiator or the head gasket?
Your 2000 wrangler sport is running hot and have already flushed system replaced the radiator thermostat changed the oil and the air filter and my oil pressure gauge is going all the way to 80.?
The lifespan of an engine is practically what you make it. Proper maintenance, and smart driving habits are the biggest factors. Keep your oil changed, tune-ups on schedule, have your radiator system and transmission flushed every 60,000 miles, and you will have a very long lasting vehicle. But I'd say that particular one, properly maintained, you should get at LEAST 175,000 miles.
