98 Malibu running hot replaced thermostat water pump and flushed raditor?
Could be your electric fan on the radiator is shot, or the relay is bad.
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.?
Check your temperature gauge. If it shows the engine is running in the normal range then there could be a problem with the "air door" that controls how much air is brought in through the heater core. Or the core itself is plugged and needs to be flushed out. If the guage shows the engine is running cold , then you should have the thermostat replaced.
Your 1999 SLS keeps running hot you have replaced the thermostat the water pump backflushed the engine and flushed the radiator what now?
Your 1996 Ford Taurus has no heatI replaced the thermostat and water pump Flushed out the radiator The temperature gauge barely moves up Still no heat?
You mention the radiator was flushed - which I've done by taking it out and running the hose through it. But - what about the engine and more importantly, the heater core itself? Not easy, but one of the "Related Questions" below specifically addresses getting the core good and clean. Also, have you checked out the blend door / blend door actuator motor operations. A cool running engine isn't all that bad a thing…
Water pump went out on 1995 Chevy Corsica replaced pump and thermostat but now it runs hot could you have blown the head gasket or warped the head?
Replace it with the exact same temperature thermostat as the one you removed. Do not run the engine without a thermostat. The thermostat is required to keep the engine running at the optimum temperature that will give the best performance and mileage. If it is overheating running it without a thermostat is not the solution.
For a 2.4 litre engine, where the pressure cap is that is the thermostat housing..if you try to remove the pressure cap (in cold temperature only) you will see the thermostat..A damaged thermostat can be diagnosed when an engine running is at above normal temperature by squeezing the radiator hose connected to the thermostat housing..if there is no coolant running in it the thermostat is close then replace it.
The best indication of a bad thermostat is when the radiator fluid (Antifreeze) boils over from the reserve tank, not the radiator. This is caused by the thermostat not opening at its preset temperature and all the extra antifreeze is pumped directly to the reserve tank. You will also have loss of power and the vehicle will likely stop running soon after the antifreeze boils over.
What other reasons are there for a motor to get hot if you have replaced the thermostat and radiator cap?
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…
Why is a 1997 Dodge Intrepid running hot after thermostat has been replaced and radiator is not clogged and no water flows through top hose?
1989 Dodge shadow that the heater doesn't heat up and the heater core is not leaking what else could it be?
My 98 Olds Intrigue temp gage is still getting hot I have replaced the water pump - thermostat and fixed the leak in the hose I have also replaced the tensioner belt as well I'm stumped?
Is it really getting hot, or is the gauge reading a little high? Did you replace the thermostat with the same temp rating? Thermostats of the same rating can vary by 5%. Also, if you had an overheat, it could have fried the temp sensor (sending unit), which could cause the gauge to be way off. The important thing is if the thermostat is opening and closing to regulate the coolant temp. Hope this helps…
your thermostat may have gone bad and is stuck in the closed position when the car reaches operating temp. check to see if the fans click on, if not carefully squeeze (it will be hot!) the large radiator hose (aka water inlet hose) if it squeezes easily with no resistance the coolant is not circulating properly and your thermostat needs replaced. if it seems solid but the fans are not running the switch on the…
Answer I would first make sure that the electric fan is working properly. If it is then I would check that the water pump is circulating properly. When the vehicle is running at operating temp squeeze the top and bottom hoses. There should be alot of resistance when this is done. If it is easy to collapse the hose then the water pump is most likely not circulating fast enough of with enough force. This…
I have replaced the thermostat heater control valve and flushed the cooling system Why is heater still blowing cold?
With the vehicle warmed up and running feel both heater hoses with your hands. If one is hot and the other is luke warm or cold, the heater core needs to be flushed by itself. Flushing the whole system doesn't unclog the heater core. Disconnect both heater hoses from the engine, fabricate a fitting to attach a garden hose to one of the hoses. Direct the other hose into a container and gently turn on…
A tune up usually solves the problem. We've had the same problems with a Chevy Suburban and a Ford Taurus. The spark plugs were replaced, some stock parts in the Ford were also replaced, but ultimately certain parts in the engine needed to be flushed and cleaned. Also, the vehicle may be overheating. Check the radiator / Cooling system is working properly.
