Purg The Air Out of the Cooling system
If it's overheating, it cold be thermostat, radiator or possibly other problems. If it's not overheating it could be the coolant level sensor.
Low coolant? Radiator plugged or restricted? Water pump not circulating coolant? Thermostat not opening? Cooling fan not working? Hoses collapsing under pressure Defective radiator cap?
blowed head gasket or cracked head
If your 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora keeps overheating and the issue is not the thermostat or the water pump, it could be the cooling fan. It might also be the radiator (leaking) or the hoses between the engine and radiator, or the shroud could be clogged or damaged.
you probably need a new radiator and get the engine back flushed while your at it.
You cracked your head.
its either the water pump or thermostat take it to a shop if you can that pump is a nightmare to change
Check to see if you have water droplets on your oil dipstick,if you do,you have a blown head gasket
more than likely you need a new radiator for it, when you install it back flush the engine.
Replacing a bad water pump can help to stop a motor from overheating. Hopefully that was the cause of the overheating. If it does not stop the overheating, try replacing the thermostat. Make sure you have the proper mix of antifreeze and water, the radiator filled with it. Check the level of coolant FIRST. Next, the hoses, and third the thermostat. Then, disconnect a hose and see if, by starting the vehicle, if there's water pressure. If not, its water pump time!
After 10 years radiator may be plugged or restricted - try to flush or boil out May need replacement
stop an engine
water pump. thermostat.
Plugged radiator, Bad thermostat, water pump not working, radiator hoses collapsing and dont forget no oil
It is very common for the impeller of a VW to break apart. The result is engine overheating and no heat. Usually, the the radiator remains full unless severe overheating causes a boilover and consequent loss of coolant. Also expect that the engine becomes hot yet radiator and heater hoses remain cool. If this happens, replace the water pump. It is usually convenient to replace the timing belt at this time.
Either the water pump impeller is loose on it's shaft, or you have a leaking head gasket.
A 1992 Cavalier could be overheating for several reasons. The Thermostat could be bad, the coolant could be low, or the water pump may be failing. The cooling fan could also be bad.
The water from your 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier cooling system. Remove the heater core water supply hoses. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.
Drain the water from your 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier cooling system. Remove the water supply hoses from the heater core. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new heater core.
if it's like my V8 Porsche 914, i had air pockets in the cooling system at the water pump. when air is at the water pump there is nothing to push water. Therefore overheating. Other things to check is water pump and radiator.
There are many different reasons why a 2000 Intrepid could be overheating. It could be that the radiator hoses are bad, or the block is cracked, or the water pump is malfunctioning. It could also be as small as a hose clamp not being tight, or a thermostat sticking.
Radiator plugged or restricted? Cooling system airbound? Water pump not circulating coolant? Radiator cap defective? Radiator hoses collapsing under pressure? Defective gauge/cooling temperature sensor?
the heater core water pump hoses including the heater hoses
Check the coolant levels. Insure that the cooling fan turns on when its supposed to, and the thermostat is not stuck closed. Make sure that the water pump is operating correctly.
